6 Products Worth The Splurge

Products worth the splurge
There is something oh-so special and exhilarating about indulging on a bit of high end makeup. But what is more exhilarating is when the product turns out to be amazing, you want to include it millions of blog posts you almost forget about paying the overblown price tag. Today I wanted to share with you all some of my top makeup products that I think are totally worth the splurge.

Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Eye Palette | Call me vain but there has been several times in the past I have purchased an expensive product down to being too darn pretty 'cough cough' I am talking about you Charlotte Tilbury. This palette is totally worth the price tag as the consistency is out of this world. The product itself is a lot more creamy and shimmery than the likes of the Naked palettes. They are so easy to blend out and will look perfect for upcoming wintry parties, especially the twinkly gold shade!

YSL Volupte Shine No.8 | This is a lipstick I definitely don't regret paying the price for. I asked for a shade that was suitable for everyday wear that added a bit of 'your lips but better' and this is that. This has touches of pink, nude and a tiny bit of purple so the colour is perfect for all occasions. It is very moisturizing which I absolutely love because a few hours later my lips are still moisturized. The packaging is gorgeous, definitely a product that ticks all the boxes for me!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation | I can't really fault this product - if you are more on the dry skin side I wouldn't recommend this as the foundation picks up those areas dramatically. It has amazing coverage which is build-able and you only need a tiny amount of this too, so great value for money. It is very long lasting and looks nice and healthy throughout the day. If you are looking for something with high coverage that is long lasting then definitely give this foundation a try, I would be lost without this as it totally wakes my face up and covers any imperfections, without having to turn to concealer!

Too Faced Blushing Heart | Makeup Revolution have similar versions to the Too Faced Blushing Hearts, but personally I think these work best for me. For starters they are incredibly pigmented which means the product is going to last me a very long time. When all 3 shades are mixed together it creates a very healthy, shimmery look that lasts throughout the day. I would really recommend these blushers if you like a pop of colour on your cheeks that also adds a bit of a glow.

By Terry Waterproof Kohl Pencil | I am not big when it comes to eyeliner but I do think purchasing a more expensive product helps get the job done a lot more effectively. I have never been able to master eyeliner quite well but this pencil really helps make it easier. It glides on my eyelids so smoothly and lasts such a long time without smudging! I really like the consistency of By Terry pencils so I would definitely splurge on another.

Nars Lip Pencils | These are more like chubby sticks rather than lip pencils, for me lip pencils fill the outer frame of your lips whereas these are used for all over. NARS lip pencils are the most creamy, long lasting and easy to apply lip products I have ever come across. I absolutely love these products and I cannot recommend them enough, despite having to sharpen them they really do brighten your lips all day long.

    My fave splurges are probably my Nars Blush in Sin and also Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua Foundation - i love them both!

  17. Ohh I really really want a YSL lip stick. I've swatched a few and they're just so so so gorgeous I might have to treat myself this Christmas. I have a feeling the Estee Lauder foundation will probably be too heavy for me, but still want to try it. I haven't splurged on much beauty recently, but will always be glad for expensive skincare that does it's job!

  23. There's nothing quite like indulging in a beauty purchase (even though my bank account would disagree I'm sure)!

    I'm totally with you on the YSL lip product front; every little detail about them is perfect (packaging, shade range, pigmentation - they even SMELL good!)

    I didn't get on as well with the NARS lip pencils, but I do like the packaging!

    1. Mine would disagree too! I have noticed they smell lovely! Aw such a shame about the NARS pencils, I do think applying a moisturizer before the pencil helps with the application

  25. I´ve been hearing too many good things about the Nars Lip Pencils and the YSL Lipsticks lately. It makes me really want to get them so badly but my bank account definitely wouldn´t approve of this. Maybe they need to make it on my wish list for Christmas.
