Beauty Worth the Splurge | Makeup Wars

//products provided for editorial consideration//self purchased items//affiliate links that cost you nothing extra to use and help to support my site are in use//


Okay, I admit it. I love to splurge on beauty products. Skin care, makeup. Oh... Especially makeup. When I have a little extra money to blow, you know where it's going. Right into my makeup case or my skin care stash.

And I regret nothing.

Today, I am sharing some of my favorite beauty splurges. These are skin care and makeup products that are perfect for my dry, maturing skin; products that I love, use and would buy, again in a heartbeat regardless of their price tag. This is by no means all of the goodies I wanted to feature. You should have seen the cuh-razy pile of stuff I pulled, when I started prepping for this post! If I had decided to feature all of them, I'd still be taking pictures. Would you like to check out some of my favorite splurge worthy beauty?

My Current Favorite Eye and Lip Liners | Makeup Wars

//product provided for editorial consideration//affiliate links that help support this site but don't cost you anything are in use//

This week's Makeup Wars is our favorite eye and lip liners and I'm about to share with the you the saddest, most motley crew of liners you have ever seen, from a beauty blogger. I've been working hard on purging old, crusty liners that hit the wall and were no longer usable and using up the good ones, before they go over. I am determined to not buy any new liners until I have worked through the rest of my inventory.

Feast your eyes on this lineup. Well loved, well used, solid performers that I depend on and would buy again, when I use these up.
