3 Beauty Products Worth Splashing Out On

With the millions of different products out there in the beauty world it's hard to know what's worth investing in and splashing out your well-earned and well-saved pennies on.

I'm a girl who most of the time uses your bog standard everyday drugstore brands and products - but there's a few things I have bought or been given as presents that have lasted the test of time and, for me, are worth every single penny.

1. Expensive Perfumes

I have lots of different perfumes - from Taylor Swift to Armani - and I'm not saying that the amount you pay makes the perfume scent any better or any worse in most cases. 
But from experience with my higher end price tag perfumes I really do notice the stay-time, the amount used and the compliments alot more.
 With just a couple of squirts from some of them I'm set for the day, which in turn means that they last alot longer, none of this applying twenty times a day malark!
Sometimes splashing out on a scent that you really really love knowing it was last is better  than buying bottle after bottle of a perfume you go through quicker than your iPhone battery!
My favourites are Angel, Alien, Si, Flower, Modern Muse Le Rouge & Miss Dior.

2. Straighteners

As much as I have tried other straighteners, (and don't get me wrong I've liked other straighteners) my heart will always lie with my original ghds.
I have had this pair of ghds since I was 13 or 14 years old (I think I got them for Christmas 2003) - I am now nearly 26 and I still use them every.single.week.
They are the greatest beauty investment you can buy - I will tell you that now! Yes they are over £100 but I far for me that's less than £10 a year - a very worthy price for something so loved and used.

3. High End Eyeshadow Palettes 

How many times have you looked at an eyeshadow palette and fallen in love.... but then seen the price tag and immediately written it off as a no-go.
If you're anything like me then this happens all the bloomin' time!
I tend to forget how long my higher-end make-up lasts me.
 For instance my UD Naked palette has been in my collection now for about 3 or 4 years and it's still going strong - even though I've used it for my eyes nearly everytime I've done a full-face of make-up.
It's my go-to, my holy grail, and even though it retails for nearly £40 after using it for so long and still having so much left - the quality speaks for itself, well worth the investment! 
I'm now looking at maybe grabbing the 2 or 3.... thoughts? opinions?

Let me know what you've splashed out on and haven't regretting below in the comments!
