Sunday Splurge: NEST Fragrances Moss & Mint Body Care

It takes a lot for me to wax poetic about body care products. Don’t get me wrong, I love the luxury of starting my day by using a potent body wash that envelops me in a delicious scent, but once I step out of the shower the aroma is soon forgotten. How can it compete with […]

Sunday Splurge: SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF Gel

Okay, I know preventative serums aren’t the sexiest of Sunday Splurges, but even I need to be practical sometimes and the Skinceuticals Phloretin CF Gel ($152) is a staple in my morning skin routine.  I found out about Skinceuticals in my early 20s when I was a PR peon at a boutique firm who represented  the brand.  Through my work I was […]

(Environmentally Friendly) Sunday Splurge: Eminence Organic Skin Care

Happy Earth Day, Bingers! What better way to binge this Sunday but on a brand like Eminence?  It’s an all-organic and bio-dynamic line (the company has been using sustainable farming and green practices to create organic products since 1958), and uses ingredients like cranberries, blueberries, and chocolate which you can literally see, smell, and feel in […]

Sunday Splurge: Kate Somerville DermalQuench Liquid Lift

Today’s Sunday Splurge, Kate Somerville ‘DermalQuench Liquid Lift’, retails for $95.  I know $95 is pretty on par with quality serums, but I decided to make the DermaQuench Liquid Lift a Sunday Splurge because I went through the bottle so quickly!  At this rate I will have to get a new bottle once every 1-2 months, though it’s […]

Sunday Splurge: Cle de Peau Beauté Concealer

Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer ($70) is one of those mythical beauty products — a short list of products that are celebrity staples but cost a ton.  I’ve been burned by its kind before (Creme La Mer – I spent a ton and it made me break out).  It’s a terrible feeling making that kind of investment and having it […]

Sunday Splurge: Shu Uemura Art of Hair Moisture Velvet Treatment

It should come as no shock that Shu Uemura Art of Hair  landed a second product in my coveted Sunday Splurge column (the first product being the liquid gold of the Shu Uemura Essence Absolue).   Unlike other luxury beauty products who use the brand name to justify a hefty price tag (I won’t mention any names), the entire Shu […]

Sunday Splurge: CHANEL Spring 2012 Makeup Collection

Yes, I want the entire HARMONIE DE PRINTEMPS collection. I started out with just mooning over the LES 4 OMBRES QUADRA EYE SHADOW ECLOSION.   The collection was inspired by the Spring “light of dawn.”  I love the peachy nail polish and the soft reds and corals. I probably won’t go terribly crazy and buy the entire collection […]

Sunday Splurge: Phyto Universe in NYC

I had to make my visit to Phyto Universe a “Sunday Splurge” because, come on, $160 for a hair consultation, deep conditioning treatment, and a blow out?  I’m a big believer in splurging on my hair, but a trip to the “hair spa” for $160 is a new level of decadence.   But of course I adore […]

Sunday Splurge: Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask

I’m surprised the Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask wasn’t my first Sunday Splurge. At $88.00 a jar and an insanely addictive consistency, this mask  is one of my biggest vices. You’re bound to overuse this product, both in quantity and frequency.  If I won Powerball tomorrow? I would call Fresh and have them ship me vats of this mask […]

Sunday Splurge: Personal Oxygen Machine (yes, I’m serious)

For the last Sunday Splurge before Christmas, I figure it’s only fitting I introduce the most extravagant item on my wish list.  (Okay… I didn’t actually put it on my wish list. It would have been too obnoxious.)  This sought-after item is the Oxygeneration Personal Oxygen System, sold at Bliss for the bargain price of $1,036 (I will note that it is […]
