Even though we love a good drugstore steal as much as the next girl, we absolutely can't fault the act of splurging on a few things. Pardon the cliché, but it's true that some beauty products are worth the investment. If you can't take our word for it, though, maybe testaments from your favorite celebs can help prove our point instead. Below, we asked 10 of them to reveal their go-to beauty splurge:
1. Julie Anne San Jose
"I like splurging on lipsticks (most of them are from MAC). They're very versatile, I love all the shades and they last really long on my lips."
MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick in Devoted to Chili, P1100, SM Megamall
2. Dominique Cojuangco
"Laneige Lip Mask. It leaves my lips feeling supple, smooth, and hydrated. I leave it on overnight and wake up with it still on. A little goes a long way, and I can’t travel without it."
LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask, P950, SM Makati
3. Max Collins
"I've been using the same perfume for a few years now and I love giving it to friends as well so it's definitely the one beauty product I'm willing to splurge on. Jo Malone English Pear and Freesia is my fave."
JO MALONE LONDON English Pear & Freesia Cologne, P4100, Rustan's
4. Rhian Ramos
"It Cosmetics' CC cream. Great coverage for my rosacea, hydrating, and a little shimmery."
IT COSMETICS Your Skin But Better CC+ Illumination Cream SPF 50, P2560, Sephora.ph
5. Liz Uy
"It’s really facial moisturizer for me. It’s like water for your body, you can never have enough."
LA MER The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream, P10,600, Rustan's
6. Coleen Garcia-Crawford
"I tend to splurge on my skin care products, which includes my moisturizer, serums and eye creams! I love trying out new products especially when traveling, but not everything gives me good results. I have sensitive skin, so I really have to choose the products that work for me. I think of it as an investment because when I’m more confident with my skin, I don’t really need much of anything else (like makeup, treatments, etc)!"
7. Kyline Alcantara
"It would be perfumes! I don't know why, but for me it will always set the mood. When I'm feeling girly, I'll spray Chanel Chance, when I'm [feeling] boyish I'll just mix two Jo Malone perfumes, and when [I want something] simple, I'll spray Armani Code. Those are my top three perfume brands."
CHANEL Chance Eau Tendre Eau de Parfum Spray, P9550, Rustan's
8. Arci Munoz
"Skincare, healthcare, self-care. That also includes traveling 'cause anything that makes you feel good for me is usually a means of self-care."
9. Kylie Verzosa
"Even before I was an Aivee [Clinic] ambassador, I would spend on getting a facial with them, and a drip! I usually would just get the basic facial and the collagen mask in the end and I feel so brand new afterwards! But now I get Aivee Ice and and a platinum shot for anti-oxidants and antiaging!"
10. Sofia Andres
"I loooove perfumes. I feel naked without them. They say certain scents brings back memories with a person or just special moments and occasions. I want to be remembered for my Bright Crystal by Versace."
