We’ve all been there: home with a new drugstore foundation, and it isn’t looking on the skin the way it appears in the bottle. Thankfully, Revlon created Custom Creations, an amazing medium-coverage foundation that can be layered for a full coverage effect. The best part about it (in addtion to the SPF 15) is that it comes with two shades, so you’ll always get your perfect tone, no matter the time of year. Comes in six color combinations. $13.99, 

kiehlsimperialbodybalm2.jpgWhen it comes to our skin, only the best will do. Since we are constantly trying new things, it’s really hard for a product to impress us so much we have to declare our love from the rooftops to get our point across. Kiehl’s Imperial Body Balm is that incredible product for us at this moment. This highly-nourishing and uber-moisturizing body cream has wowed us to the point of utter infatuation. We are in love, to say the least.

Formulated with Shea and Cocoa butters and Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil to replenish skin, antioxidants to protect, and glycolic acids to aid in faster cell-turnover, this thick moisturizer goes to work soothing rough spots, leaving our skin looking radiant and healthy. Its dessert-like smell makes using it even that more enjoyable. 8 oz. $42,


Our skin needs moisture to stay healthy year round, so naturally we love lotions and creams to keep it that way. This fresh, light-scented body balm by H2O Plus is perfect for warm weather, and our new favorite. Packed with nourishing ingredients, like Vitamin E and Provitamin B, it saturates our skin with water-rich moisture, leaving it looking and feeling smooth. $11.50,

We know that there is a financial crisis going on. We know that we’re all on some sort of budget. We know that we should be looking for the best products that cost the least amount of money— but we can’t always do that. We have to splurge at least once and awhile. And it has been awhile! Read on to find out about our favorite products that are slightly more than budget-friendly.

When we found out La Mer was making a powder foundation, we could hardly contain out excitement. We know the pice tag is steep, but beautiful results always come from La Mer. As always, the brand uses their own exclusive Radiant Ferment to add visible clarity and brightness to skin, making us look, for lack of a better word, amazing. Ideal for natural, long-lasting coverage or for touch-ups over your favorite, not-so-expensive foundation. $95,

If treatments at Kate Somerville’s Melrose clinic are geographically inconvenient, we highly recommend investing in this exfoliating treatment. This signature formula works using the power of fruit enzymes to clarify skin, delivering visible results after just one enjoyable application. We love that it keeps our skin clear, removes the dead cells that make us look older, and lets us pamper ourselves a couple of times a week, like Hollywood royalty. Ideal for all skin types, except sensitive skin. from $85,

Looking at the packaging alone, who wouldn’t want to pull this out of her purse? We love the light, dewy texture that treats our lips with nutrient-rich ingredients, while providing a vibrant color to suit our mood. The metallic tube is adorned with a very practical ring to reveal the shade house inside, and a mirror on the bottom for easy touch-ups any time of the day. $34,

We could easily get a comparable shades of this palette at a drugstore, but let’s face it, this splurge-worthy item is much more affordable than the brand’s handbags or any one item of clothing form the collection. This palette houses 4 gorgeous tones that we like to wear on our eyes for a more awake appearance, or on our cheeks to give our skin a “kissed by the sun” look. Blend them together or wear alone to create your own subtle luminance. Limited Edition. $65,
