Save money or buy makeup??
Save money, or buy aaallll the makeup? That is a question I ask myself probably way too often.
When you follow as many beauty blogs and watch as many YouTube videos as I do, it’s hard to not have a giant makeup wishlist! In fact, I have a giant memo on my phone right now of things that I want.
It’s a problem.
A lot of the time, the things I want are on the pricier end, and it’s hard to know whether it’s worth the money or not.
I dug through my collection to look at some of my more high end items to see which ones are worth their high price tag, and I definitely found a few!
My roundup of splurge-worthy items!
1. Clarisonic Mia ($99)
I will always splurge on my skin, because when your skin is well taken care of, your makeup always looks better, and you also feel better with less makeup on!
My all-time favorite skin care purchase of all time has to be my Clarisonic Mia ($99).
Ya, it’s hard to fork out the money, but I’ve had mine for years and years, and it’s still going strong! After I wash my face using my Clarisonic, it feels sooo clean and soft. Nothing else makes my skin feel as good as this does. Totally worth the money.
All foundations are different, but some just work so much better than others. The drugstore does have a couple of awesome foundations that I love, but for the most part, higher end foundations just seem to work better.
2. Chanel Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 ($48)
When I got married a few years ago, I wanted to find the perfect foundation for my wedding day, and I found Chanel Vitalumière Aqua ($48).
It’s the most gorgeous foundation I have ever owned. When you blend it into the skin, it actually just looks like you’ve got beautiful skin. It doesn’t look like makeup; it’s crazy.
I don’t have this one in my collection at home too often just because of the price tag, but when I do, I fall in love with it all over again.
