Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Biggest Beauty Splurge

Dolls, living in New York has made me frugal about quite a few things. I never buy breakfast of coffee except on weekends, I walk and take the subway instead of spending on cabs unless it’s after 11pm and I do my own mani/pedis 90% of the time. But I’ve grown addicted to lash extensions (thanks to my gal Jessica for introducing me!) and am going to try out a third salon, Courtney Akai, per my gal Marina’s suggestion. But this lash extension addiction is not cheap, lovies. But I keep keepin’ on, as it’s my gift to me. And, it saves me five minutes in the morning I used to spend applying liner and mascara. I quizzed the Beauty Bloggerati about their must-have splurges as well, so I could feel better about my spending habits ITE (In This Economy). Here they are:

My biggest splurge was the Clarisonic. It took some convincing at first but after I talked myself to stick with it for awhile, my skin thanks me.

My biggest splurge is continuing to buy the Chanel Sublimage Cream. This stuff really works for me. Since I’ve been using it my skin is never dry in the winter time. I even depot some of it for my travel kit. It’s $375 a jar, but my goodness is like manna from heaven. I’m still hiding the price from my boyfriend because if he knew I think he would want to put me in Shoppaholics Anonymous. Seriously.

I am consistently willing to spend money on Bare Escentuals foundation. I’ve even been using the mineral veil in place of a dry
shampoo (under desperate circumstances)… just don’t tell anyone!

My last big splurge was lash extensions. I tend to obsess about beauty products and services and more often than I admit, I gave in. The lashes look awesome, I barely wear eye makeup these days, and my girlfriends were jealous (that’s a good sign right?). I’ve read so much about them and Anne had them for her wedding and her eyes were so beautiful. Unfortunately, seeing as they require monthly upkeep, I doubt I’ll have them too long. Let’s just say they required some serious trade offs like no manicure for weeks. I wonder what I’ll get next?

Amber, my biggest splurge was the Brazilian Blowout. This keratin treatment left my hair more manageable and easy to style than I’ve ever experienced! I absolutely love the results I got from this treatment and will continue to get them as, in the end, it saves my a ton of styling time!

My biggest beauty splurge this year is getting my hair perfectly highlighted every 6 weeks. I also bought the T3 Evolution blow dryer for $300 which I ended up swapping for my old-time classic (I got tipped off at the Bumble & Bumble salon in NYC years ago): 1875W SuperSolano Professional Hairdryer, around $100. The T3 just didn’t work well with my very thick and full of volume long hair which requires strong power hair dryer.

My biggest splurge has been Latisse! I love what it does for my lashes but not sure if I want to keep paying $120 a bottle!! The price of beauty, I guess!
