Expensive But Worth It

Dare I say it? Over the past few years’ drug store makeup has improved both in quality and in innovation. However, there are those gems in the department store that no matter what I’ve tired nothing seems to compare. So while some there might fancy a luxe mascara or high end foundation here are my 3 luxuries worth the price tag.

Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir
I love this scent. This heady scent is truly an original because it falls somewhere between the line of masculine and feminine. Yes this smells like pomegranate but there something (maybe the patchouli?) that make it smell so darn remarkable.  Non dupable and well-loved Pomegranate Noir is pricy but worth it.

Bobbi Brown Corrector
There are a couple things about being fair unless your pale you wouldn’t understand.
1.       Why are all pale foundations so pink?
2.       People just assume you were a fan of Twilight series
3.        Pale skin usually means a colony of purple veins live around your eye area.
It is these pesky veins that constantly make me look sleepy and overall just dive me nuts. Eventually my journey’s lead me to the Bobbi Brown Corrector.  Unlike anything else I’ve tried the pinkish concealer is perfect at neutralizing my veins. In addition the little pot lasts forever and while the texture is thick it’s not cakey what so ever.  While there are tons of correctors on the market nothing beats the Bobbi Brown corrector.

Guerlain Shine Automatique in Rose Pompon
This lipstick is so expensive but if I had to pick a lipstick to wear everyday this would be it. Right down to the handy packaging, the sheer wash of colour, the moisturising qualities and the very flattering colour this particular lipstick has got it going on. Rose Pompon is a sheer pinkish plum with just happens to go with every look imaginable. Basically I  love this lipstick and don’t think I could be without it! 

What are you expensive but worth it products? Leave me a comment!


  1. Lovely, luxurious picks! I've been dying to try a Jo Malone fragrance and Guerlain lipsticks are really top-notch! My biggest splurges over the last several months have been from Tom Ford and May Lindstrom. Ultra pricey, but such wonderful stuff :)


    1. I have been wanting to try Tom Ford lipsticks since they first came out.
      HMMMM... maybe a trip to Holts is in need ;)
      Thanks for the comment

  2. yessss guerlain lipsticks are really remarkable! It's like, I don't want them to be worth the money because they're so expensive...but they are! Also, you just described the pale gal's struggle PERFECTLY, holy shit!

    1. LOL I thought you would like that!
      Oh man I am running low on the Rose Pompon ... I repurchase will be needed soon!
      Thanks for the comment!
