    I go through periods where I place orders several times a day, and other times where I’m broke but still sneak it in once a week or so. Right now I can only afford to swap, but my USUAL is one to three times a week. Oh, addiction.

  2. Every time I leave the house!!! I am a junkie through and through :)

    I voted once a month because my mom works at Macy’s, so I always get a 20% discount at the MAC counter there…but they also have been having 2 days every month where the discount goes up to 30%, so I always save up a list of everything that I want from MAC or any other makeup counter in Macy’s, and I buy during that time. The only exceptions are if I want to buy something that they don’t have at the counter in Macy’s, or for the first time yesterday I went to a CCO, which was awesome because everything cost about the same as if I had bought it at Macy’s during the 30% off anyways, and I got to buy things that I had passed on and have been kicking myself for: the heirloom brush sets and the sculpt/shape duo.

    How relieved was I when I saw lots of other people buy makeup once a week or more!

    I only buy when a new MAC collection comes out, so that’s about onces a month. Since I have no job I’ll combine all the collections in that month into one order which can only total up to $200. That way I can get away w/ordering every month xD.
    How I wish to get a job…

  6. Once a week or more … or whenever I go past the counter and something catches my fancy, and when there is new collections, I go crazier. BUT I saw Electroflash yesterday, and NONE of the stuff interest me. I am waiting for Sonic Chic and New View. :p
