My Clarisonic (which improved the quality of my skin a lot) and my brush collection (all from MAC, Louise Young and Shu Uemura) – I own like 55 brushes, I’m a total brush fiend.

Definitely my GHD Flat Iron, was a little painful gave all that money but it’s was worth it and I love it!!!

I don’t really own any expensive beauty tools, although I have quite a few brushes (mainly GOSH and couple of Mac). However, I do own some expensive beauty products like Chantecaille powders/palettes and Guerlain Meteorite Voyage powders (they cost £100/$150 each).

My mirror. It has a few light settings and it was expensive. Not sure why I went there, but I did. The next expensive things are my MAC brushes.

It would probably be my Suesh 16 pc. brush set 2500php (around $53). Next thing would be my MAC lipsticks. I have 10 MAC lipsticks that has a collective price of 9000php (around $191). I’m such a lipstick eater. 🙂

i never knew anyone who owned the zeno but it always intrigued me. had it really helped your skin? can you elaborate a little on it? can’t decide if i should get it or not…thx!

I have a zeno and I love it, you just have to start using it as soon as you feel a zit bump coming on.

My Clarisonic is the single most expensive item but so worth it, my only regret is not buying it sooner. $195 is nothing though compared to the combined value of all my products and tools which I’d guess to be in the $30,000 range. I need to take inventory again to update my insurance but I’m waiting for all the fall collections to come out.

My MAC brush sets, Zeno and T3 travel dryer. The dryer broke though and is no longer usable. The Zeno is great for stubborn acne, in tandem I use BP 10% and bam, those suckers are gone. =)

I’ve only recently gotten into buying MAC and the Body Shop stuff (about a year) so I don’t own that many expensive products. I’d say the most expensive product I own would be my Suite Array duo. Everything I own is under twenty dollars! My fall MAC collection/Colour Craft mini haul will be expensive though (about 50 dollars).

MAC does allow customers to call and put products on hold that haven’t been released yet right? If so, how long are they allowed to be held? I want to hold Assemblage MES from Colour Craft and Graphblack/Colour Matters technakohls from Makeup Art Cosmetics until early October, which is when I know I’ll have the money to spend.

My MAC does not, but I have heard of some people being able to set things aside once a collection comes out (but not in advance). Your best bet would be to call your local MAC counter or store and ask one of the managers there.

My Clarisonic and my Thermaclear. I’d say the Thermaclear is probably worth it, but unfortunately for me the Clarisonic isn’t. It’s helped a little with dry patches, although that could just be from the weather since I got it when winter was ending. I do love how clean my skin feels after using it, but it hasn’t helped my breakouts or noticeably changed my skin’s appearance 🙁

My most expensive beauty tool would be my CHI straightener ($85) and my most expensive beauty product would be my Mac Barbie Beauty Powder in Pearl Blossom that I paid $65 for on eBay because I wanted it so bad!!

My Guerlain Meteorite Voyage which i got here from Saudi for 700 riyals(about US$190) ridiculously expensive right? yes makeup items here are so so so expensive, including MAC of course…next will be my MAC brushes…and oh yeah, i was lemming for clarisonic for ages already but it’s not available here…too bad:((

Bobbi Brown’s Intensive Skin Supplement – 1 bottle is 1 fl oz for $65.00. A bottle lasts me for a month and half, but this stuff works, so I don’t mind paying the price. =]

Most expensive I own has to be my MUFE Mat Velvet foundation, which costs $34. I could say one of my MAC brushes but I buy most of them from CCOs at discounted prices and they’re all under $32, even my 150 brush (typo on the website and I got it for $29, WOOT!)

I love my Mat Velvet, best $34 I’ve ever spent!

ghd = worth it
brushes = worth it
la mer = sadly not worth it…didn’t work on my skin type!

It is definitely my Tourmaline hairdryer, 200 dollars! I’ve gotten my money’s worth though, I’ve had it for like 6 years now!

Most expensive hair tool was my CHI flat iron. For makeup, the 187 brush is probably the priciest. I usually don’t spend too much on one thing, but I believe that some products are worth it if used everyday.

My T3 featherweight blowdryer and flat iron, and clarsonic. They were all almost $200 bucks a piece, but I use them almost everyday.

My cosmetics are of average price — I have the usual designer stuff, but nothing extravagant as far as makeup goes. My most expensive beauty products are skincare items. I think currently the most expensive thing in my cabinet is the Shiseido Future Solutions cream.

OMG definitely my clarisonic–but I really love it! My skin looks great! I’m thinking about getting a nice flat iron but I don’t know which one to buy? chi? sedu? I can’t afford ghd…tough decisions!

First of all, my Clarisonic definitely cost me a fortune. However, I tell ya, it’s the best thing I have done for my skin.

Second, my monthly supply of Proactiv system. It’s the second best thing. Made such a difference. The cost does add up to a big number by the end of the year.
