Celebrity Makeup Lines That Are (Actually) Worth the Money

Makeup is a billion-dollar industry and every year, it continues to grow. The beauty industry has also evolved to involve creative celebrity collaborations. In fact, many celebrities have created beauty lines that have stunned the beauty world. Here are a few celebrity makeup lines that are definitely worth your money!

1. Kylie Jenner – Kylie Cosmetics

Since their reveal in 2016, the quality of the formula for Kylie’s LipKits has improved with every batch. In the beginning, there were complaints of a certain drying component to the liquid lipsticks, but the brand has accounted for the ingredients and has continued to release high quality products.

The Kyshadows are definitely a fan favorite. With names such as “Take Me On Vacation” and “Eye of the Storm,” the palettes filled with fun colors that are easy to blend. 

Jenner is also known for collaborating with her friends and family members to create jawdropping products. She also creates popular bundles for each popular holiday season. Needless to say, everyone is excited to see what Kylie Cosmetics has in store for its next holiday collection!

The only set-back is that the products are only sold online (though this may be changing soon!) at kyliecosmetics.com.

UPDATE [11/7/2018, 9:30AM]: KYLIE JENNER JUST ANNOUNCED THAT KYLIE COSMETICS WILL BE SOLD IN EVERY ULTA STORE ACROSS THE UNITED STATES STARTING NOVEMBER 17, 2018! THIS IS NOT A DRILL!

 

2. Jessica Alba – Honest Beauty

It’s not only diapers and baby shampoo that makes the Honest Company great! Alba’s Honest Beauty provides clean beauty products that are free from parabens, silicones, synthetic fragrances or dyes, etc. A fan favorite is the “Organic Beauty Facial Oil,” which is USDA-certified organic. It is also dermatologist tested and hypoallergenic. The best part about the facial oil is that you can use it as a part of your “Honest Essentials Bundle” to save money and receive a new shipment of the product every month.

 

3. Rihanna – Fenty Beauty

She may be bad and perfectly good at it, but her products are great. Particularly, Fenty Beauty’s Match Stix. There are shimmer Match Stix, which make for a great highlighter. There are also matte Match Stix, which can be used for concealer, contour, and bronzer.

Fenty Beauty’s Pro Filt’r foundation, which comes in 40 shades, is also a fan favorite. The foundation has been sold out for months in most Sephoras stores. Sephora is the only cosmetic store in the United States to currently carry the brand.

 

4. Jeffree Star – Jeffree Star Cosmetics

With 74 Velour Liquid Lipsticks with names like “Calabasas,” “First Class,” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” it is hard not to fall in love with Star’s liquid lipsticks. The range of colors in the line make them irresistible. The formula of the products is not drying and does not leave the liquid lipstick to crack or fade as you wear it. However, for seasons with dry or cracked lips, Star offers his Velour Lip Scrub (which comes in 20 flavors and works wonders).

 

5. Kat Von D – Kat Von D Beauty

Kat Von D Beauty is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. The Shade and Light Face Contour Kit is one of the most beloved contour kits – and rightfully so! Kat Von D’s eyeshadow palettes are also creamy and easy-to-blend. Their 24-hour-wear Tattoo Liner won Allure’s Reader Choice Award in 2018. The liner is highly-pigmented, waterproof, and transfer resistant.
