The $50 Naked 2 palette! May not be a huge splurge to some, but it was for me. It’s really not that much product considering how small the shadows are. But worth it.

The eye shadows in the Naked Palettes are all full sized. Each single shadow retails for $18. 12 single shadows would cost $216. You’re actually getting a lot of product for a great value.

Agreed! My Guerlain pressed Meteorite powder is the best! And any one of my Guerlain lipsticks are divine!
Cash poor but cosmetically rich!!

Although not a recent purchase, I’d have to say MUFE Flash Palette. I’ve used for everything from a cream eyeshadow base to a lip pigment. I’ve also used it to create cream contour shades. $100 seems like alot up front, but it lasts a very long time, and is extremely versitile.

Another product I splurge on are NARS eyeshadows. Considering how much product you get, the price isn’t too bad. Also, if you break down the cost of the duos, they’re only $17 each, which is actually less than one UD or MUFE single, and barely more than MAC.

Hmmm, so many! Love Clinique’s Superbalanced Mineral Powder—at $42, it’s the best powder I’ve tried. So sad they’ve discontinued it. At the advice of a MAC MUA, I also recently spent an impulse $50 on two different colours of concealer for under my eyes—one to correct and one to conceal. Worth it! 🙂

Both UD Oz palettes… love them except for the glitter in a couple of the shades included in each, these were both amazing products.

All my M.A.C lipsticks and my Chanel JC blushes and so many more.
THE beauty product you mean ? This year maybe Chanel la Poudre Signée ?

The Cle de Peau face enhancer in pastel. I love this stuff so much it has replaced my guerlain meteorites! So worth the splurge. It is the best finishing powder I have ever used.

Do you buy that massive, giant one? I think there’s a 10 or 12 oz one that comes out on special? I mean, it’s massively expensive in one go but way better value than the regular size.

My mom loves the stuff but refuses to buy it.

I have bought the original creme since 1997 and now only buy the 2 oz size. I am afraid that the larger size will spoil. I have other brands sitting on the counter but this one is the one I have repeatedly bought. I buy the original because it is tacky and I can make it last one year. I like the texture of soft cream but I dont think I can make it last as long. I have tried the eye products, the lifting serums, foundation but I never repurchased them as I have with this creme. If you have a cut that doesnt heal, put a dab and it does the trick. I think it has kept wrinkles away but it does not firm the skin. And I am looking for something that can firm my skin. I truly like this product, but it is getting very expensive. The one oz size now cost just as must as what I used to pay for the two oz size. Estee Lauder is a money grabby greedy corporate company.

I was concerned the larger pot would spoil over time, depending on how often/quickly you used it. Happy to hear from someone who’s been using La Mer for a long time and feels that it works well!

I bought the Guerlain Meteorites that came out with the Pucci collection–they were my first Meteorites and a splurge for me. I love them. Not only are they a fantastic product, but the packaging is so pretty, I really feel special using and wearing them.

Chanel’s Jous Contraste Blush in Malice. Beautiful color and it goes on so smooth and lasts all day. So worth the money. Now I think I need to try out Rose Initiale.

I definitely agree with you on Chantecaille’s Rose Petal highlighter, LOVE IT!

Some other ones for me are Guerlain Terra Inca Sublime Radiant Powder (not very recent, but still great), Cle de Peau Extra Silky lipsticks and Tom Ford Lovelust blush.
