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: Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist 24 Intensive Eye Contour Cream, $70, sephora.com
Why It’s Worth The $: “After years of sleepless nights, the wrinkles around my eyes started demanding some TLC. After many failed samples of eye creams, I found Shiseido’s six months ago at Sephora, which matched my needs and skin type (dry and sensitive). The price did scare my student budget but I forget those fears when I see “before and after” photos of my smize.” — Sarah Cho, fashion intern
