    Hillary Kerr, Co-Founder, Clique Media

    The Splurge-Worthy Pick: Sachajuan Volume Powder ($32)

    “Considering the speed with which I go through dry shampoo, I save this incredible volumizing powder for ‘special occasions,’ and it’s always worth it. It’s really perfect for girls’ night out—or even date night—hair, when you want that perfect French-girl tousled bedhead.”

    Katherine Power, Co-Founder, Clique Media

    The Splurge-Worthy Pick: RéVive Intensité Les Yeux ($210)

    “Eye cream was a take-it-or-leave it item for me until I tried Revive’s Intensité Les Yeux. I can see a noticeable difference in fine lines around my eyes as well as the overall smoothness of my skin. If I could afford to rub it all over my body, I would!”

    Meghan Blalock, Managing Editor, Who What Wear

    The Splurge-Worthy Pick: MAC Mineralizer Skinfinish ($32) in Lightscapade & MAC Bronzer ($32) in Give Me Sun

    “When it comes to beauty products, I don't typically like to spend a lot of money. But every now and then I get a kick out of walking into Sephora or a department store and dropping what I deem to be a totally unreasonable amount of money. These two MAC products are by far my favorite. The mineralizer is practically iridescent in the case, and it's just so pretty--after I buy it, I take it out and just stare at it for the longest time, before it ever hits my face. The bronzer is the perfect shade for my fair skin, and makes for a fantastic contour!”

    Faith Xue, Editor, Byrdie

    The Splurge-Worthy Pick: Chantecaille Rose de Mai Cream ($210)

    “I’m obsessed with all things rose right now, especially when it comes to face products. This lotion is lightweight, absorbs immediately, and smells divine. It’s become my favorite part of my nightly skin routine!”

    Jenna Peffley, Producer, Clique Media

    The Splurge-Worthy Pick: Organic Raw Manuka Honey ($50)

    “I’m a big fan of organic raw manuka honey taken both internally and externally. This stuff heals zits overnight, if left topically on skin.”

    Allyson Payer, Executive Assistant to Katherine Power/Editor, Who What Wear

    The Splurge-Worthy Pick: Chanel Resynchronizing Skincare—Le Weekend De Chanel ($115)

    “This serum smells divine, and an all-in-one serum is such a nice change of pace for the weekend. Time is money!”

    Sarah Chiarot, Senior Graphic Designer, Clique Media

    The Splurge-Worthy Pick: Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist ($48)

    “Most of the products Tatcha makes tend to veer on the splurge side of things, but, in my humble opinion, they all live up to their price tag. I continually go back to this mist; it goes on like a thin gel and absorbs into your skin so quickly. It instantly hydrates and leaves your skin feeling fresh and dewy, whether you spray it on a full face of makeup or straight after the shower.”

    Nicole Kliest, Senior Editor, Who What Wear

    The Splurge-Worthy Pick: Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask ($55)

    “In the grand scheme of things, it's not a ton of money, but because my budget doesn't normally go to skin products, it feels like a splurge—a splurge that was entirely worth the $55. Every time I use it, I wake up to find my skin looking plumper, my pores smaller, and my overall complexion brighter. It's the best!”

  • 9 of 10

    Michelle Scanga, Associate Editor, Who What Wear

    The Splurge-Worthy Pick: YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch Pen ($41)

    “This pen banishes dark circles like no other concealer, promise.”

  • 10 of 10

    Shanelle Thoreson, Graphic Designer, Clique Media

    The Splurge-Worthy Pick: Dior Gel Top Coat ($25)

    “The price definitely exceeds what I normally would budget for something as simple as a top coat, but Dior's Gel Coat is worth every penny. It’s true to name, with a gel-like finish that lasts. My nails always look like I just got them done, without actually getting gel nails—love that!
