What cheek product was worth the splurge?

Chanel limited edition highlighters/blushes, in general, tend to be really lovely quality with a nice design, so I have found them “worth it” in the sense of delivering a quality product. They can be dupable, so not every shade is was “worth it” depending on one’s existing stash.

I got a Chantecaille highlighter a couple of years ago that was a sequin pattern that’s pink on one side and gold on the other—it’s my favorite go-to and I’ve worn out the sequin pattern.

For me it was the LunatiCK Cosmetic Labs contour palette — which really wasn’t a “splurge” in terms of amount of product for the price, but still carried a bit of a big ticket price. However, I love the contour powders and blushes, and I use some of the contour and highlight colors on my eyes, too — the highlights are great for a quick brow-bone blend-out, and the contours are great if I need to add a little more depth to my crease. And the pans all pop out, so I can replace them when I run out, or just take a couple pans with me in a smaller magnetic palette if I want to travel light.

I love Chanel and only have a few products but I love them and seem to hit pan, get afraid want to save/slow down on use because of the expense then say F it and use every crack crease and then scrape the sides before discarding the package.. and I even HATE letting the empty package go… Their bronzers and highlighters are honestly ethereal. My next “worth it” products are literally anything I have from Pat McGrath… if there was only one brand I could use.. it would be PMG no question. I just need her to give me Bronzer, Blush and more highlighters! I wish she would separate the highlighter trio and make single larger pans of each shade! The bronze was my favorite!! I could not get enough.. I need a huge pan.. maybe the extra large TF/MJ size!
