all brushes I would love to have.. many permanent eyeshadows, paint pots, fluidlines and stuff I don’t buy cause I prefer the limited staff and think all the time I can still buy that normal product range

im gonna buy mac brushes, smashbox photo finish light primer, 6 blushes of sonic chic (i already have pleasantry, gentle and merrily–i want to get all 9 of them!)..

Not really… I figure I would never spend $100 more on a box anyways.. But I think the MAC ones are super awesome! πŸ™‚

Brushes, I want to get more face brushes, esp those for blushes and contouring. And pigments, I am lemming Steel Blue, Vanilla, Naked, etc.. my current collection is only 4 (Jardin Aires, Glided Green, Your Ladyship & Lark About)

Hi Sophia,

I could never justify the MAC traincase myself! SOOO pricey. I’d love to get it as a gift, but you know, I don’t even feel comfortable asking for it.

many permanent MAC items (e.g. Painterly pp, Bronze e/s)
Dior quints /Fall 08
Estee Lauder Perfectionist CP+ serum (a current lemming)

I already have all the makeup I could want… I would get some more chanel brushes, and a few Mac
with the remaining money I would invest it into skincare products from either la Praire or Naturisse ( dunno how to spell it cant be assed to check lol)
a eye cream, and a lightening radiant cream

Lol wait leave the brushes..the creams would easily come up to 500 lol

Hmm Β£250… all the MAC blushcremes because I’m so in love with Blossoming.
That would probably take me up to my limit lol but if not some UD 24/7 liners, because i’m in love with the black one I have.

– i would get a couple of foundations i have samples of. i don’t have to decide anymore!
– a huge traincase (mine isn’t enough!)
– prep+prime
– 188 brush
– an angled shader brush
– some fluidlines
– amber lights, handwritten, passionate, plum dressing, chrome yellow, etc (shadows i want to have, but i know i wouldn’t use very much)
and the rest i save it for sonic chic (we don’t have it yet!) and i’ll buy merrily, gentle, gleeful, nuance.
thank you for the money!

GREAT question, Christine! I’d rush off to Saks and get some La Mer and that uber-expensive Armani fragrance I’ve been eying. πŸ™‚ I might even skip the La Mer and go over to the Bond No. 9 counter and pick up that bottle of Chinatown I’ve been lemming for… for forever!

wow this is something i think (dream) about alot! i’d get the following:

alot more MAC — blushes, lipglass, eyeshadows, everything i’ve been wanting to get and held off on!

some Chanel — glossimers, blushes, foundation

about 10 Lancome Bifacils makeup remover (can’t live without it)

some Kerastase products

and whatever else i see in MAC or Sephora that makes me happy πŸ™‚

I would buy HALF (and spend my own $500 on the other half) of a TRIA personal laser hair removal system. Permanent hair removal, cheaper than laser hair removal Centers and in the privacy of my own home. πŸ™‚
Will be on sale to the public this fall, though you can purchase it through dermatologists offices currently. $1000 for never having to shave my underarms, legs or bikini line again? Bargain!

I hadn’t heard of this, I NEED one! Need to google it so I know more. Have you already tried it?

Have not tried it. If you Google TRIA Laser Hair Removal, you should find some links. Sounds very promising and if your hair is too pale or skin too dark the laser will not activate, so they have built several safety features in so the at home user will be safe and the device used properly. Sounds very promising!

I have to use VEET, nothing else works for me. I am mexican and therfore a tiny little fuzzball. I joke that I am half feline, lol. Between my waxing obsession and the Veet, I would probably save money in less than a year.

I’d buy many chanel nail polishes, all the permanent mac eyeshadows, all mac brushes and a huge beauty case πŸ™‚

All the MAC LE items that I’ve missed, don’t matter how expensive they are.Lotta, tons of MAC LE’s.

And … Some Dior, some Guerlain LE editions, Chanel glossers and nail polishes, newest collections, Bobbi Brown…And some Urban Decay & Benefit.

Well, that’s all.I don’t spend money to facials, except some delicious body creams and Lush =)

I’d run and get some extravagant face moisturizer (like la mer or darphin) and probably stock up on eyeshadows and stuff i wouldn’t normally buy.

Oh yes, i know! There’s no other way I would ever spend that much money on creams!

Argh. Your question makes me wish I had an extra stash of cash lying around!! haha

Love your site, btw!!

I would get myself some permanent MAC e/s, NARS e/s, eye and face brushes from MAC and Shu Uemura, some Shu Uemura skin care product, then a nice Chanel quad and some Chanel blushes.

I’d finish off the rest of the Sonic Chic collection, the Starflash products (actually picked some eyeshadows up last night at Nordstrom’s…they are RIDICULOUSLY awesome and I’m fighting the urge to buy all of them…and I have to go back for more of those liners!), some brushes (I’m eyeing the MAC 188 but not sure if I “need” it), Lush products (I love their solid shampoos and the Buffy bar), the new Lancome collection, the Too Faced smokey eye set, and all of the products I love from the Dr. Hauschka line. That stuff is expensive, IMO.

I too, would think about getting beauty treatments versus actual products. . . like book 6 months worth of facials and body scrubs, LOL.

I’d probably invest in a home airbrush tanning system, and I liked a previous posters idea about getting hair removal tools.

I’d buy some awesomely expensive skincare creams.

Stock up on everything I’ve ever wanted at Sephora, including some brushes, LOL.

I’d get some brushes (new concealer brush, some eye floofs, liner and lip). Then I’d grab all the perfumes I’ve been lusting after. A full bottle of Bond No 9 Chinatown, Keiko Mecheri Ume, Andy Tauer Incense Rose, Indult Isravaya or Flowerbomb or Montale Vanilla Extasy (I can’t decide yet). That’s probably all I can afford but there are at least five other bottles I want.
