News to Use ♥ Luxury Make Up Products Worth the Price Tag
I'm a girl who loves a good deal... who doesn't? But I also know you can spend so much money on product after product and it would have been cheaper and you would have been happier to just splurge on a product that actually works.
Well Allure magazine has made the call on the beauty products they say are worth the price!
Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara - $30
It's a best of beauty winner because it doesn't clump or flake and delivers full almost fake-looking lashes. (I do want to try this... I love FAKE eyelashes :)
Clé de Peau Beauté Lip Gloss - $48
This smooth lip gloss is not sticky and has a burst of lasting color according to Allure. ($48? No way. I don't care how amazing this lip gloss is)
Prady Candy Scrub - $75
A scrub that is grainy enough to buff away rough patches, but doesn't feel scratchy. (I guess we are just figuring out here that I do have limits. $75 on a scrub? Not gonna happen either. But it does come in a pretty pink jar.)
Edward Bess Quad Royale - $45
This four powder quad can be used anywhere to give a natural sun-kissed look. (I would probably like this... but I'm not dying to try it.)
Dr. Brandt Time Arrest Creme de Luxe - $200
Allure says this anti-aging cream has "mighty arsenal of ingredients to battle a range of skin foes." (EEEEKK $200? I can't ever get wrinkles! OK, I already have a few, but I can't get anymore.)
La Prairie Cellular Lip Renewal Concentrate - $105
This lip treatment exfoliates and hydrates the lips and a tiny drop makes lips softer and naturally pinker. (This actually sounds pretty amazing... but woooo $105.)
Leonor Greyl Shampooing Reviviscence - $65
Allure says, "This transformative shampoo justifies its price tag by bringing brittle hair back to life with just one wash." (I probably need this...)
Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Face Oil - $150
Make-up artists use a couple drops to add a dewy sheen to clients faces. (I can't imagine using oil on this face, but I think it's because of my constant battle with acne that has been going on pretty much forever.)
Prevage Day Ultra Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA++ - $129
It's a lightweight anti-aging sunscreen with a fruity scent. (I do like things that smell nice... :)
Sachajuan Volume Powder - $32
A great dry shampoo? (Well Suave works OK for me and it's only $3... so)
Clarisonic Aria - $199
This is an electric facial cleansing brush recommended by dermatologists. (I'm definitely intrigued and Allure says they had radiant glowing skin after a couple weeks of use...)
