    Anything really, if i like the product and i have the money then it’s mine!!! ;)

    Nothing specific really but I’m ten times more likely to splurge on shadows/blushes with bright, unique colors. Also if a product gets rave reviews I will probably splurge on it to see what the hype is about.

    One thing I will never splurge on is face wash, even the most expensive ones always seem to have the SAME ingredients as anything you can get at Walgreen’s!

    Practically anything and everything! Mascaras, moisturisers, skin treatments, hair products, blushes, eyeshadows, foundations, lipsticks, nail polishes..you name it and I can assure you that I’d splurge on it.

    Of course, I don’t splurge on beauty products blindly, like Marjorie, I’d only indulge on products that received a reasonable number of rave reviews or that are very aesthetically pleasing.

  4. I spurge on foundations (duh) and sets. I love to buy sets where you can try a whole bunch of items from one line. I just got the Lorac Best Dressed palette and it is to die for and I am very happy I bought it. I also splurge on brushes, because those can last forever.

    Foundation & blush, mostly. And, like one of the posters already mentioned, highly rated products.

    I’ll splurge on anything I know I will really use. I’ll splurge on an everyday eyeshadow that is perfect or a great coverup. Also, I find that drugstore eyeliners do not work aswell as a MAC eyeliner or a more expensive one, so I will spend more for an eyeliner.

  7. I’d definitely splurge on skincare I love or foundations, powders, whatever makes my face looks flawless and best! :)

    What do you find yourself splurging on, Christine?

    • Hey Lilan! Honestly, I don’t think I splurge on anything, because I primarily buy mid to high range makeup on a regular basis. I suppose I would splurge on good skincare if I had to choose, too!

  8. usually I will splurge on foundation or blusher.. haha I can used them for pretty llong time.

    i splurge on skincare…. i like to wear light makeup (powder, lipgloss) on most days, so it’s more important to me that my skin looks clear and fresh. i find that even if low-end and high-end products have the same ingredients, low-end formulations are harsher on my skin and dry my skin out. also, i consider mac products splurges, but i am ALWAYS willing to shell out for mac!!!

    I definitely splurge on skincare, mainly because my skin is so difficult to begin with. I’m a recent Lush addict, so… :)

  11. Any MAC product is a splurge for me, the prices are beyond ridiculous here.

    Lipglosses are my main addiction i buy from drugstores to department stores. I never seem to think i have enough even tho i do not even use half of them!

    I splurge on skin care.. I have so many moisturizers. I guess you can say I’m in the trial-and-error phase with moisturizers.. I’m looking for a HG!! I also splurge on eyeshadows, blushes and eyeliners. I can’t seem to get enough of them.

    I’m willing to shell out the douugh for my very beloved Origins Out of Trouble mask! It’s nearly $30 over here in Germany but the result is just to-die-for!

    That and TIGI shampoo + conditioner because they smell amazing!

    Oh and Lush products…and and and! :D
