One of my friends doesn’t wear makeup at all and she thinks that I’m a little nuts. She doesn’t even own a single tube of mascara or lip gloss. I can’t sleep at night whenever I think about that, so I try not to.

They laugh, they tease, they probably call me shallow behind my back…but then they ask me to do their makeup / hair whenever we go out, so secretly I think they wish they could get away with being such a beauty geek!

None of my friends are as wacked about it as I am. They always ask for my advice + are cool about it, but none of them read beauty blogs or check out all the newest collections, or any of that.

They’re all supportive of it though. I have great friends that way. πŸ™‚

Hey Cristine,

No cristine,not really.They do not laugh on me coz they also love makeup but not that much wen it comes to me!!


some think I have too much makeup.
that I don’t need all of it.
BUt they do know I love it and it has become my new hobby : )

I usually donΒ΄t make my addiction public.
My friends who know admire my collection and my vanity table. My husband thinks he could be worse off if I was into fashion or shoes or handbags that much.;)

“My husband thinks he could be worse off if I was into fashion or shoes or handbags that much.;)”
My hubby just came to that realization one time during dinner when I told him I couldn’t sleep because I really wanted this one thing and tossed and turned all night. He said “i guess it could be a lot worse *sigh*”

Most of my friends don’t get me when it comes to this topic. I have 2 friends who never wear make-up, the rest wear just mascara and lipgloss (and on VERY rare occasion eyeshadows). They do ask me to do their make-up when we go out but still think I have too much make-up and I’m a beauty addict. I find that to be a little annoying, me having a lot of make-up makes me happy and is good for them too coz they get to use it!

They do not know the extent of my personal makeup collection. I am not hiding it, but they just don’t care. I need to find new friends!! Lol.

I have one friend who shares my passion for makeup, but she and I live so far from each other. I’m in Michigan and she is in Florida. Anyway, when we go to Sephora or MAC or even the drugstore and we find something new, we e-mail each other, send pics of our purchases, etc. It’s pretty funny. Aside from her, I have no one else…boo hoo! The rest of my friends either don’t wear makeup, or if they do, they don’t get excited about it like I do…=0(

They think I’m nuts and weird. They wear make up, but they’re just not into it like me. My mom and sisters on the other hand, wow, we could live at Sephora! I asked my mom if she wanted a massage or facial for mother’s day and she gave me the sternest look and said deadpan “I want make up” She makes me so proud!!!

well my parents hate it they think its a waste of time..
my friends…sometimes they think its too much sometimes they come to me for advice or to do makeup

No, which I guess is why I’m always online to talk to you guys ;). They know about it, and (to my face) they’re cool about it. I totally agree with the above poster that they are all about me doing their makeup. My friend pushed back the time of her party so I could do her makeup last week. Usually, when we go to the mall, I’m like “OK Have fun in forever 21, Ill be at MAC, call me when u get out” and for the most part, they join me at MAC and I’ve got them to start their own little addictions.. so… who knows!

Aww, “to your face” but behind your back?! Aww.

But it’s great that at least they recognize you for the makeup guru that you are πŸ˜€

ahh me too about the mall thing!! I always regret buying clothes @ forever 21 so i would rather buy MAC!!

Well my sister and husband want to be the founders of:”Mac Anonymous” they think it’s “silly” to have more than 50 eyeshadows, I of course beg to differ! My best friend and I are always on a mission to “paradise” so it’s cool to have a partner in crime! Besides, I missed out on so many quads from ’04-07 I have to make up for lost time! πŸ™‚

My friends think I’m ridiculous for the amount of makeup that I have. And I have no friends that are as passionate about cosmetics as me….. πŸ™

I did meet a good friend on a MAC Addicts group on FB!

My friends are totally on board with me!! And, a couple of them have started reading your blog regularly b/c I told them how much I love it πŸ™‚

My boyfriend is such an enabler! He thinks my makeup hobby is great. I went into MAC yesterday to get two (2) Dazzleglasses and walked out with five (5) in addition to a lipstick, lipliner and four eyeshadows. *sighs* Most of it was aquired by him since I “didn’t have enough lipgloss.” What’s a girl SUPPOSED to do when a guy says she doesn’t have enough lipgloss? *lol* My friends are rather in awe of my beauty addiction. They don’t use makeup often and all the colours are intimidating apparently. I’ve been slowly passing on my Jedi knowledge so that they’ll be addicts too. πŸ˜‰

But the shoes are beautiful! I got Comet Blue, Glamour O.D., Love Alert, Steppin’ Out and Ms. Fizz. Today I’m trying Love Alert over Russian Red.

Ohh good question! My friends love it! This past weekend, we were all in a wedding together, and they were all gushing over the MAC eyeshadows. I guess there’s something in it for them, so they approve, haha.

My friends think Ive gone crazy to buy makeup with insane prices lol. None of them have the same addiction as me… oh well hehhe

Lol all of my friends are either guys or gals who don’t wear makeup at all. Well apart from one friend who wears lip balm and calls it makeup, although i disagree. Anyway I’m seen as the ‘perfect’ beauty goddess who knows all.. and somehow i just can’t bring myself to disagree lol.
