After sharing some of my favorite drug store beauty steals here a few weeks ago, I thought I'd share all my make up splurges here today. Most of these products have won some type of "beauty award" which is basically how I've found them through the years. The world of cosmetics can be overwhelming, so I'm always grateful for awards that can narrow down the daunting selection. Sites that offer reviews and feedback like Sephora and Nordstrom are also so helpful, especially when some of these products can be quite expensive and usually by the time you figure out it's not for you, it's also not refundable. I use all of the above for some time now and consider them to be "must haves". What does your beauty routine look like, are you loyal to your products or do you like to play and sample?
