Temptalia Asks You

Do you consider yourself a beauty bargain hunter? Are you always on the look-out for a good deal?

Temptalia's Answer.

I always keep an eye out for sales and the like, but I don’t say that sales make or break my purchases!

    Not necisarily. i dont mind spending alot on quality.
    but im pretty good at finding authentic MAC realy cheap on ebay! last thing i got was burnt burgundy pigment for $10 (AUD)including postage and its 100% authentic!!

  2. Proximity

    Nah, being a beauty bargain hunter would interfere with another aspect of my personality – being lazy 😉

  3. AYHM

    YES, but I won’t sacrifice quality.

  4. Ali

    Not really as I’m more about the brand more so than the price. But that doesn’t mean if I find a bargain that I’ll pass it up! :)

  5. Definitely. I’m forever browsing eBay for good deals and I have found some great ones incl. vhtf LE BNIB Guerlain Meteorites for £15 ($25) and you can often buy marked samples of new Mac releases, so I have saved quite a lot on A rose romance and Style warrior this way. :) I also keep an eye out for sales, but there aren’t too many in the UK, esp not on the high end products. :(

    Not at all…too bad for my wallet

    i’m a bargain hunter in everything BUT my makeup. I do try to get pro discounts so that i can keep my kit up without spending a fortune. i do love me a CCO though!

  8. I think it depends on the product and how bad I want it.

  9. AA

    Not at all. I’ll try to keep an eye out for sale’s but will buy the item if I will want it.

  10. Kitson

    Sorta. I always looks for promo codes and deals. But, I buy whatever product I really want, no matter what. I agree with lesleykat, I do love CCO. :]

    I always keep my eye on Ebay for MAC. I was able to get a few MAC samples from Sugarsweet that way. A sale is terrific, the sumo sale enabled me to get lots of gorgeous MAC brushes and backup foundation.

    A lot of the time I rather not go hunting for an item that’s sold higher at one place and said to be sold cheaper at another place. I don’t have the patience for that really. If I know where the deal is for sure then I’ll go for it…but to shop around, maybe not.

  13. Heather

    I am definitely a bargain hunter I’m always looking for something that’s a bargain but if I really want something I will buy it!

  14. aramis

    sorta i usually pay regular price for make up but if there is a deal then it makes the purchase better…i do look for bargains on lotion, hairproducts and stuff like that…i do spend less on clothes or look for bargains on clothes and spend more on my beauty purchases

  15. Definitely. I usually wait to buy drugstore makeup when there are BOGO sales. High end makeup I only buy if I feel like I REALLY need it.

  16. Jo-Anne

    To an extent, yes. I like to buy higher end make up when it’s at a lower price than normal. I don’t buy a lot of drugstore brands though, for ethical reasons.

  17. jenny

    yes i am, and proud of it! it helps to do a bit of research. i get what i want, and have more money in my pocket!
