What Beauty Item Would You Totally Splurge On?

As a self-confessed beauty junkie, I have a habit of always wanting to buy a new makeup product or the latest hair styling product.  If it’s Walgreens, chances are it makes my shopping basket, however if I’m some place like Sephora I’m a lot more selective in what I buy, partly because we’re not talking drug store prices and I don’t want to make a habit of blowing money either.  After reading Courtney’s post titled How Much Do You Pay for Foundation? I realized that for me there is one type of beauty product that I would absolutely splurge on without hesitation especially if it works time and time again.

Foundation!  ( Betcha couldn’t guess, huh? 😉 )

Lucky for my wallet, the medium coverage  foundation I use from Mary Kay is very reasonably priced ($15 for a tube that lasts for about 3 months).  It’s the only one I’ve used and it never lets me down.  For me foundation is super important – it’s the backdrop for your entire look and if you’re foundation is off, everything is off!  So if I find one that works for me whether it’s $15 or $40, it would definitely be worth the splurge.

So what say you?  What beauty product would you absolutely splurge on, no questions asked?

  1. moisturiser and foundation! having a flawless base is so important imho 🙂 and because the above products two cover the largest surface area so it’s more value for money on a per-square-centimetre basis heh

      I totally agree! Moisturizer may be number two for me because it’s hard finding one that works with my combo oily skin.

  2. I’ll have to admit that I splurge on skincare products! Everybody need a perfect canvas to paint on. 😉

      Absolutely! Taking care of your skin is super important, even if you don’t wear makeup

  3. I’d pretty much splurge on any type of beauty product as long as it works well. But, I would say lipstick is something I splurge on more often.
