The idea of what qualifies as a splurge varies from person to person. To those of us on a tight budget, it could be anything with a two-digit price tag. Others see a splurge as a wildly expensive and perhaps somewhat frivolous purchase that is simply worth the spend because of how it makes us feel. Or perhaps you see a splurge not so much as an undeniably costly product but as something that’s simply priced higher than other products in its category.
You’ll find all of the above among Allure‘s 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards. Just as voters picked plenty of beloved drugstore finds as some of their favorite makeup, skin care, and hair care, they also didn’t hold back on confessing their love for some of the pricier beauty products out there. Oddly enough, this year’s more extravagant picks are on the modest end of the splurge spectrum, with only one product — an especially sophisticated hair tool — hitting the three-digit mark. But that doesn’t mean the other six don’t feel like they’re worth their weight in gold.
Below, you’ll find the products that Allure readers are inclined to spend a little more money on, including a classic exfoliating formula, a repeat-winner perfume, and a luxurious lipstick — all of which you absolutely deserve.
