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: Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer, $19, sephora.com
Why It’s Worth The $: “One of the only luxury beauty products I’ve ever bought that delivers is the Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. I first bought it at Sephora four years ago when I was looking for something lightweight and dewy for summer. The application is seamless and buildable, and truly looks like a glowier version of my own skin. It covers redness and evens skin tone like a CC cream, with the added bonus of providing all-day moisture. There’s also a whopping 2oz of product, unlike the standard 1oz for foundations, making this purchase even sweeter.” — Meaghan Wray, culture intern
