All things makeup, definitely, and I go through phases. I can be looking for a perfect foundation and buy only that during a while, and then Ill move on to the next obsession and will get tons of mascaras, or eyeshadow palettes, or lipsticks…

that sounds like what i do. i went through a phase where i needed to find the perfect loose powder… and ended up with eight of them. same with black liner, and lip balm, and pink lipstick/gloss… and the perfect nude eyeshadow, it took me 3 years to find it. i had to buy Fafi Eyes 1 just for Hey eyeshadow, it’s my HG now.

Probably eyeshadows, I have a ton of them. But having said that, the most expensive items Ive bought are face powders/highlighter eg. Chantecailles LE powders, Guerlain Meteorite Voyage Powders and LE Mac MSFs like Pleasureflush, Lightscapade and Stereo Rose.

I just bordered a clarisonic brush! I ordered the original and a few minutes later I read your review on the mia so I called sephora and asked to exchange it. I spend a lot on lipgloss but it never seems like much becuase I never buy more than 2 or 3 at a time.

foundation in general, blush, studio fix and dazzleglasses not alot but more than my eyeshadows and lipsticks

It used to eyeshadows but I giving that a break cause I dont have a job, so lack of money and places to wear it. But to contridict myself I have a growing love for lipstick!

I tend to spend most of my money of face products like powders, highlighters and bronzers. Having said that I am a glitter baby. LOL! Anytime I see something sparkley I have to have it… MAC dazzleglasses, MAC reflects glitters, you name it!

I definitely have to say eye shadows. I don’t have too many lipsticks because I like bolder eyes and there are pretty much unlimited color combos. Next would be lip gloss.

Anything to do with the eyes…shadow, liner, shadesticks, PP’s…it doesn’t matter… I must have it ALL!!!

In terms of sheer quantity, eyeshadows. I have tons and tons of them, including quite a few pre-made palettes now (and about 70-80 MAC single eyeshadows in palettes).

I am most willing to spend a higher amount of money on a lip product. I would never spend more than about MAC price on a single eyeshadow, but for the rip lipstick, I’ll spend $20 or $25 or even $30+. I wouldn’t quite go Cle de Peau 🙂 but I’d buy Chanel, YSL, etc if the item is just right in a lippie. Not a single eyeshadow, though.

I would’ve said eyeshadows six months ago but now I have so many colors, I’ve moved to collecting lipsticks.

Blushes and lipsticks. I think I am obsessed with pink/coral colors so whenever I see anything in pink or coral, I can’t help to reach out to my wallet….:)

Foundation/tinted moisturizer, primers, skincare products, and brushes. I will on occasions spurge on blushes, liners, and contour/highlight products if and only if they catch my eye.

I probably spend the most on skin care, but quantity-wise it’s definitely eyeshadow. I have way too much eyeshadow, and sometimes end up buying something I already have, but I think I’m addicted!! ; )

I am mostly I lip girl but I don’t spend a lot on lip products compared to eye shadows and skin care because I think the base for good makeup is good skin care. Also in general, I think it is more important for me to have better quality eye shadows then lipsticks and lipglosses because it makes the application easier.

I’m about 50/50 with eyeshadow and lipglosses. Next would be blushes and brushes! Not so much into eyeliners or mascara. I’m always drawn to eyeshadow/combination palettes as well (especially UD). I don’t own very many since they are pricey but I’m always drooling over them.

Lipstick. I used to spend the most on eyeshadow, but I’ve grown out of that phase and love my neutral eye colors. I also spend a lot on mascara because I’m always searching for something better despite how much I love my current mascara.

A big part of my money goes to face and eye creams.I will be 30 in a few years and I dont want to see any wrinkles yet. I want to have a beautiful face and skin even without makeup. Another part of my money will go on perfumes and mascaras:)A girl can never have to many perfumes

Hair products….. a girl only need her hair on point and everything else falls into place with or without makeup. Then I think maybe lipglosses… I would say face products but recently found my holy grain products and threw everything else away but mostly hair products.

I dont hesitate on foundation (MUFEs HD) and primer (MUFE UV Primer). I limit how often on the eye shadows (MACs of course but only 1-2 pans/month). I dont do too much blush. I find that if I find one I like (usually based on others reviews), Ill stick to that for awhile. Id love to be able to buy everything I think Ill like, but Id rather not d/t other expenses (like children!). I have 2-3 lipsticks that are high end otherwise, I stick to the drugstore brands cuz I find that theyre usually comparable.

Eyeshadow in general. Even though lately Ive got a lipstick love… and I do tend to splurge on moisturizer/eye cream now and again. BUT, if you look at my collection, eye shadows/pigments are the things that are overflowing out of my bathroom, so I guess if I had to pick one thing it would definitely be eye shadow 🙂

$ per product, probably skin care items but quantity wise lipsticks and eye shaddows. I cant resist trying new colors and looks. I guess for me makeup is kind of the big girl version of playing with crayons — its fun!

I love buying eyeshadows and lipglosses! Aside from my ever growing MAC collection, I’ve learned to peruse drugstores for totally affordable glosses.

everything and that’s why I am broke 🙂 Foundations, primers, lipsticks, lipglosses, concealers, skincare, gel liners, paint pots.. grrrr

Nail polish; I seriously think I have a problem lol. I’m getting quite a collection. Second would be bath and body products, mostly bubble baths/shower gels.

Skincare and hair.

I only recently realized how expensive it can be to maintain dyed hair. It’s a vicious cycle: dye hair -> hair has new color but gets damaged -> buy more/new products to keep it looking healthy -> color grows out -> dye hair etc..

Probably the most unnecessary thing to have too much of.. for me, lipglosses.. haha

I can see spending a lot on eyeshadows

I spend the most money on high end foundations and concealers. Right now my liquid foundation is Revlons colorstay($13.50) and I love it but the next foundation I want to try is Chanels teint of innocence($47) and my setting powder is Macs MSF natural($25) and concealer is Macs select moisturecover and studio finish,($16.50) however, the next concealer I really,really want to try is Bobbi Browns creamy concealer($22).

Skincare all the way!!! I may buy the occasional gloss, hair product, or liner but skincare is where most of the funds go and its also where I feel okay spending the most for a single product. I mean, the palette is so much more important than the paint.

Everything. I go through stages and it depends on what I’m obsessing about in the moment. Skincare, perfumes, eyeliner/eyeshadow/mascara, lipgloss/lipbalms/lipstick, nailpolish, brushes, tools, limited edition, department stores, a given brand, ugh i hate myself lolll

looks like i agree with a few people… eye shadow and skincare!!
it’s starting to become foundation and concealer too though since i’m having a hard time looking for ones that work, i’m heading towards more expensive brands now

Skincare. My skin is dry and sensitive and I pamper it. After that it’s eyeshadows. I have enough for 50 lifetimes, but it gives me a thrill to look at all the pretty colors. Yes, I am an addict!
