OMG YES! I bought Pink Venus TWICE!

I guess I didn’t remember that I owned it because I had it in the Fafi quad. When I realized it, it was too late and I had already depotted it.

What sucks most is that I don’t even like Pink Venus. WORST MAC EYE SHADOW EVVVVERR!

Only once, and recently to boot! I purchased Vibrant Grape a second time thinking I didn’t have it. It’s okay, the new Vibrant Grape seems a touch different from the once I bought years ago.

I’ve accidentally bought multiples of a similar color in different colors and brands. A few that come to mind are Chanel Pagoda and Pleasing and MAC Viva Glam V.

I’ve bought dupes of a shade quite a few times, but haven’t bought the exact same thing twice unintentionally…yet.

I bought one of the Viva Glam lipsticks twice, not realizing I already had it. That’s okay, though. It was for a good cause and I just gave the 2nd one to my mom. I knew it would look good on her. Oh, I also did that with Vapour eyeshadow. After that, I made a list of all the MAC products I own to keep track, especially since they often repromote limited edition shades.

I did just recently. I was at the Guerlain counter when they had a promo of buying one Rouge G and get the second lipstick half the price. I was not familiar w/ the numbering system but I do memorize their names so I accidentally bought Giulette and I just realized it when I was at home.

No, but I’ll buy different lipsticks from different brands, but they would all end up being the ‘same’ shade.
