Everyone loves a steal, and that definitely rings true for beauty products. We go crazy for Sephora sales, run to Winners to load up on shampoo and take pride in those drug-store finds that do the trick just as well as their pricey counterparts. But then you find that one special product with a slightly jarring price tag—and you can’t help but treat yourself.
We feel you on that, and we’re here to let you know that we also spend what other, less beauty-obsessed humans might consider crazy on products that make us feel pretty. Because you know what? Sometimes, you do get what you pay for.
So click through, and find out what made our list of beauty products worth splurging on.

Product: Marc Jacobs Beauty Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer, $55, sephora.com
Why It’s Worth The $: “At $55, it isn’t crazy expensive, but it’s a lot for something that you can’t actually see on your face every day. I bought it originally because I loved the smell—it honestly smells like a beach vacation. Before this one I had never found a primer that I loved, they were all too drying or I didn’t notice any difference. But this coconut primer is now absolutely essential for me—it acts as a moisturizer, too, so my dry skin loves it and it really does help my foundation stay all day without oxidizing or disappearing. Plus I’ll wear it alone on days I’m not wearing makeup because it makes my skin look amazing and dewy—definitely worth the splurge!” — Lauren Ufford, associate editor
