We all love to splash the cash from time to time. Whether it’s an expensive handbag or a premium beauty product, the buzz of removing a high-quality item from its flawless casing incites feelings of anticipation and excitement at the thought of turning heads with our luxurious new purchase.
Obviously, the financial outlay required to secure a Louis Vuitton handbag is significantly more than an Estée Lauder anti-aging cream, for example, but the exhilarating feeling gleaned from a smaller, less expensive, purchase is more than comparable.
When it comes to stocking up your beauty shelf, just like your wardrobe, it’s advisable to have a combination of inexpensive products for everyday use, and a small selection of high-end items to be used sparingly for that special occasion.
