Beauty Splurges That Are Worth Every Penny

Hey Gorgeous! Are you looking for a great way to blow your tax return this year? I recommend investing a chunk of that cash in a few (or all) of these splurge-worthy beauty products. You’ll be glad you indulged your obsession with these beauty splurges that are definitely worth their hefty price tags.

Beauty Splurges: Makeup


Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

A medium coverage foundation that provides a lovely, glowing finish. I always come back to it. $62 at Sephora.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Get amazingly lush lashes with a single swipe. It’s not too shabby at curling and defining either. Want to know the best part of this beauty splurge? Too Faced has finally introduced a waterproof formula! Hallelujah! $23 at Too Faced or Sephora.


The original and still the best, this high-definition cosmetic sponge applicator makes short work of seamlessly blending all of your foundation, concealer and contouring products. Get your beautyblender for $20 at Sephora.

Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover

This dual action remover works like a dream on even the toughest, waterproof eye makeup. $15 at Sephora.

Splurge-Worthy Skincare

SK-II Facial Treatment Mask

Sheet masks are infused with vitamins and amino acids and deliver intense hydration. Stock up and use daily if you’re preparing for a special day. Get one mask for $17, six masks for $95 or ten for $135 at Sephora.


La Prairie Skin Caviar Sleep Mask

The vitamin-rich caviar extracts smooth and soften skin while you’re sleeping. It’s what I call an overnight success! $315 for 1.7 oz, available at Nordstrom.

Beauty Splurges: Hair

Mason Pearson ‘Popular Mixture’ Hair Brush

This combination nylon and boar bristle brush is my Holy Grail. Whether I’m wearing my hair curly or straight, this brush defines curls, detangles and smooths my tresses like a dream. Available in different sizes and bristle configurations, the Mason Pearson Popular Mixture Brush is $205 at Nordstrom.


Moroccanoil Treatment

This argan oil treatment delivers terrific shine, absorbs quickly and smells heavenly. I keep a large bottle in my beauty cabinet and a small one in my Beauty Go Bag. $44 for 3.4 oz or $15 for 0.8 oz at Nordstrom.

Happy shopping!
