We asked the BuzzFeed Community what expensive beauty products are worth splurging on and here's the ~good stuff~ they can't live without:
1. Moroccanoil Treatment infuses argan oil into your strands to detangle, speed up drying time, and boost shine — it does it all, and we're here for it.
2. Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows are sure to make you SHINE extra bright whenever you want something a little more attention-grabbing — it has a lot of grip too, so don't worry about fallout or messiness.
3. Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream Moisturizer rescues dry, dull skin overnight with beneficial ingredients like African oils, plantain, and fermented green tea, so you wake up with feathery-soft skin.
4. GHD 1" Flat Irons clock in at the sweet styling spot of 365 degrees to give ya super slick and shiny hair without any unnecessary damage and over-frying.
5. Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal and Extra Strength Daily Peel come in pre-soaked pads packed with five kinds of acids, so you see real results over time. Hello, improved texture and diminished fine lines! It's basically an at-home derm treatment.
6. Pretty Vulgar The Ink Gel Eyeliner not only comes in the prettiest little pot, but it's the PERFECT liner for summer. Why? It's water-resistant and budge-proof, and it contains Vitamin C to keep lids looking healthy and non-irritated.
7. Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colors (especially in Rose Gold) turn the compliments switch all the way up — it can't be helped — and it's versatile too: you can use it along the lashline or all-over for maximum impact. Now, 🎵 smoke it out, smoke it out 🎵.
8. Tatcha Deep Hydration Firming Serum replenishes your thirsty skin cells with whole plant green tea, rice bran oil, and red algae — and it's a wonderful primer that adheres to your makeup for all-day hold.

13. Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet gives your skin a burst of grape-water-and-chamomile-powered hydration — with no post-application sticky situation!!

18. MAC Cream Color Base in Luna is the perfect ~dewy~ highlight for people who are unsure of stronger doses of colors or sparkles.
19. Benefit Gimme Brow Gel uses tiny microfibers to bless your brows with juuust enough tint to make them look fuller and more defined — just a few swipes and you're off!

21. Guerlain Météorites Highlighting Powder Pearls color-correct and diffuse light so you — and only you — shine the brightest. Peep Guerlain's Stardust Technology, which diffracts light upon contact to envelop the skin in a halo of light. How angelic!!

24. La Mer The Powder is the end-all to your setting powders — its light-as-air formula is infused with the brand's signature Miracle Broth so you know it's actually good for your skin, instead of something that clogs your pores like no other.
25. Diorskin Forever Undercover Foundation has a water-based formula that dries down matte, so you have makeup that replicates the closest thing to a second skin. Talk about covering all of your bases — full-coverage, pigmented, 24-hour-wear, weightless finish, etc.
