The Makeup Worth Splurging On

I am one of those makeup lovers that either goes crazy at Target or Crazy at Neimans. I love me some drugstore makeup but I will say I do have some pricey makeup in my collection. I have shared my inexpensive makeup finds before. So today I want to share with you what I consider to be the makeup worth splurging on. You know there is some stuff out there worth splurging on and this is the stuff. TRUST ME!

Splurge Worthy Makeup

 

1. Butter London Nail Polish: To be fair I think most nail polish is overpriced. I mean it’s nail polish people! But I do love Butter London. I go to a nail salon that happens to have Butter London and I usually gravitate towards this raspberry color in the Fall for my toes. It is perfection. Yes it’s worth the money!

2. Dior Show Mascara: Oh lord. My love for this will never die. It makes my eyelashes look amazing. I will say there are drugstore  mascaras that will get the job done as well but if you were to splurge on a mascara please spurge on this one.

3. Dior Lipgloss: One of my favorite splurge purchases that I thought I would kick myself for at the time is this lipgloss. I have two a great coral color and a dark red. They are amazing, non sticky and last a long time. Basically all I look for in lip gloss. The price tag is a little hefty but you will love it.

4. This Chanel Eye Palate: I hate spending a ton of money on eyeshadow because I do not wear it super often but I bought this palate and I love it!!! It has great colors that contrast each other so well. I know you could buy a naked palate and get twice as much but still I love these colors. They look great with that Dior mascara!

5. Makeup Forever HD Foundation: One of my favorite foundations. I love this so much. It’s very light and creamy and perfect for sensitive skin. TO DIE FOR.

6. NARS blush: Really any of them. I have about 8. I wish I was not so addicted but lets face it these are the best blushes around. Spend your money and pick yourself up some NARS.

7. Bare Minerals Highlighter: I love a great brightening highlighter. I have found great inexpensive ones but I love this one for days when my face just needs a little something extra. I highly suggest picking this up!

 

What is your favorite makeup worth splurging on?

    Love me some NARS!

    That nail polish looks so classy! I agree. In general, nail polish is overpriced.

  2. I have two Butter shades – completely love them but I find it hard to justify that $15 price tag! That raspberry color is to die though 🙂

    The Dior lipgloss packing is gorgeous! x

    Butter London Nail Polish is definitely worth the scourge but like you said, most nail polishes are on the pricey side <3

  6. I need a highlighter! BareMinerals in general is a brand worth splurging on for me. Their makeup is my favorite!

    I usually buy Clinique because it has no perfumes. And sometimes they have a give away sample bag that really comes in handy.

    I’ve gotta try that Butter polish!

    Thank you for sharing!!

    I’ve always wondered about Butter. It’s good to hear it’s at least close to worth its pricetag!

  16. The Makeup Forever is what I’ve been using for years and I’m pretty sure it would take a miracle product to convince me to switch. It’s the best!

  19. I have been wanting to try the Bare Minerals highlighter. I currently use their powder and I want to graduate to something with a little more coverage. I also desperately want to try the NARS blush. Blush is my absolute favorite part of my makeup routine.

  20. This is really great. For someone like me who doesn’t know that much about makeup I always wonder what is actually worth the money. And what other stuff I should just buy cheap.

    I don’t love the Make Up For Ever foundation and I’m surprised! I’ve tried a few of their foundations and all of them look “eh” on my skin. I love the Dior BB Cream (HydraLife) and the Estee Lauder double wear foundation.

    I LOVE the Dior mascara one of my favs. My #1 mascara is the Make Up For Ever smoky lash (not to be mistaken with smoky extravagent), have you tried it???

    All makeup is worth splurging on for me. I do love when I find drugstore products that work well, but I’m okay with spending more when I know it’s going to perform better!

    How’s the coverage with that light foundation? I like when foundation feels like but I like to have a lot of coverage at the same time. (I know I want it all lol).
