6 Products Worth the Splurge




Hey you! How was your weekend? Mine was busy! I went to an Atlanta Braves game, attended a pool party, cleaned out my medicine cabinet (I had stuff from '08! Yikes!), and finally cashed in my loose change ($100!). Speaking of money, last week I shared my 5 Under $5, and I was asked what items would by splurge-worthy. I hope you enjoy and I can't wait to hear on what items you splurge!

6 worth the splurge



1.Sigma Brushes--Investing in some good brushes is an absolute game-changer when applying makeup, especially for eye shadow. These are soft and have held up well after repeated uses and washings. Check out this post on Essential Brushes for my faves.

2. Bioderma--I first fell in love with this product in France and it's an occasional splurge. It's an excellent, gentle makeup remover. I have very sensitive eyes, and even oil-free products hurt.  It feels like water and has no fragrance.

3. Mason Pearson Hairbrush--I thought all hairbrushes were the same until I tried this one! It helps distribute the natural oils in hair and makes dull hair shiny. And lucky you--I'm giving one away! Click here to enter.

4. Urban Decay Naked Palettes--If you want a neutral palette with a little bit of everything, try these. The original Naked (pictured) is warm tones, Naked 2 is cool toned, and Basics is mostly matte. There are dupes, but I like the quality of these, plus they're great for travel and for a variety of looks.

5. Davines Oi Oil--My hair takes a lot of Moroccan oil to get it to work, but Davines Oi is made with Roucou oil. It takes just a little to make my hair shiny, smooth, soft, and tangle-free. If my hair is going through a funk, I switch to this, and it works wonders. I use it every time I get a blow out.

6. Clarisonic--Who doesn't love the Clarisonic? I have the Mia and use the sensitive brush head. It exfoliates my dry skin, leaving it smooth and soft.

What are your beauty splurges?

  20. I splurge on foundation since my skin is very finicky and shampoo. I use the Redken All Soft, and I have never used any other shampoo, drugstore or otherwise, which leaves my hair so refreshed. I buy the liters and dispense into smaller bottles to save money. I also have a Paul Mitchell hair straightener which is worth it because I use it almost every day.

  25. If you like the Sigma brushes, I would highly recommend the Real Techinques brushes and though I have only tried the later, I have heard from quite a few people that RT brushes are even better quality than Sigma's! I really agree that a good makeup brush makes all the difference when applying makeup. I love my Clarisonic too. :) Great post! I think I may do one of these in the future!

  26. Thanks for sharing! Haven't tried any of these. Would love to win that brush ;)

  27. I 100% agree with you on UD Naked Palettes, they are lovely albeit a wee bit pricey, but it's worth the price! Clarisonic is very expensive here, retailing close to 600 ringgit so I opted the way cheaper version of Olay Pro-X Cleansing System.

  28. these are great splurge-worthy picks. I love the Bioderma (the blue version) to regulate my oily skin and I want to get a naked palette (although I don't know if I look better in warm or cool tones, I suck at picking colors for myself). As far as the Clarisonic goes, I tried it but turns out my skin is just too "thin" and even the gentle brush is too much for my skin. I'll just have to stick to vitamin a and chemical exfoliators. I want the mason pearson brush, I really hope I win it! :)

  29. I'm seriously considering a Clarisonic, I think I may have to pull the trigger soon since 40 is sneaking up on me - eek!
