I am planning on purchasing the Urban Decay Naked Palette but at £27 for so many eyeshadows and then the two eyeliners and primer potion I don't even see this as a luxury purchase as it's such a great value for money product it is more of a need than want.

Makeup Savvy needs to be Less Savvy!
Yes, you heard me right! Whether your a new or old reader you will know that my blog is based around affordable products both skincare and makeup. I write about this because that is what I love and it's what the bulk of my makeup collection is made up off and I truly believe the products I use aren't poorer quality than that of a more expensive brands.
However I do feel like I never really let myself indulge in brands such as Givenchy or YSL - however there is a reason for this.
I just haven't thought any product was worth the money!
I just can't see myself spending £25 on a foundation brush by MAC and thinking it was money well spent, nor could I justify spending £23 on an eyeshadow duo by Nars however pretty the shades were.
It's not even like I haven't purchased anything that would fall into the 'luxe' category. For years I re-purchased Touche Eclat by YSL (£22) however have now found I like a £8.50 concealer by No7 more. I have also gone through countless bottles of Thierry Mugler's Angel (£55) but love it as much as my £12 bottle of Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker.
I guess I have yet to find that luxurious product that I truly love.
All the above products are what I could class as luxurious, maybe not the Laura Mercier palette (bottom left) as the packaging isn't all that great.
If I am spending £35 + on a single product I want quality, beautiful packaging and if it's a makeup product I want something that can be used in multiple ways (I don't want alot, do I). I don't think I could ever spend over £20 on a single lipstick or eyeshadow, ever!
So as you can see I am abit of a scrooge - I really do want value for money and this is why I end up not buying anything. I just can't decide what would be worth it.
But I do want to treat myself more to quality makeup products and enjoying them!
So I need your help!
I know that alot of you love your high end makeup and I want to know what you love the most, or what you see as a really indulgent but worth it purchase.
