Building a beauty routine is all about saving and splurging on the right products. Just like the over-the-top chandelier that you just had to have, there are makeup, skincare, hair and fragrance buys that are worth the splurge. It’s all about finding the right balance and only investing in what’s totally necessary and life-changing.
But how, you ask? Get ready to take notes, girls.
When I first began writing this story, I wanted to share my favorite beauty products that merged skincare with color. I immediately realized that these products happened to be quite expensive. What I concluded is that these are the ultimate investment pieces. Not only are you getting great physical results, you’re investing in the future of your skin.
Now, let’s get to the good part, shall we? Below are my absolute favorite splurge items I’ll invest in time and time again.
Le Metier de Beaute Anti-Aging Complex – Ive mentioned this product before, but it’s one of my all-time favorites. A Vogue beauty staffer told me about it, revealing that the entire office is obsessed. It’s like a tinted moisturizer and it gives you the best glow. It’s formulated with retinol, so remember to be careful with the sun.
Omorovicza Mineral Touch Concealer – Like Clé de Peau, but $5 less and packed with Vitamins C and E to even skin tone and even boost collagen. It’s super hydrating, yet not greasy, and it’s long-lasting so you don’t have to reapply super often. I recently met with Omorovicza’s founder, and seeing her skin immediately turned me into a convert.
Tata Harper Be Smitten – This is Tata’s newest color from her lip balm collection, and it’s by far the prettiest. It’s super hydrating and smells so good. It even increases the volume of your lips to give you that full look. Increased collagen and anti-aging are among the benefits of this perfect summer essential.
