I have a few big hauls. Some arent from a particular collection, and most are when I am travelling. It is like holiday money doesn’t count or something and I go crazy.

1. Sugarsweet Haul, I got 2 lipsticks, Peppermint Patti Perfect Topping, and 2 eyeshadows
2. 8 MAC eyeshadows, 2 blushers, 2 nail lacquers when one of my friend went to the states
3. 3 MAC eyeshadows, 2 blushers, 3 Dazzleglass, 2 lipglass, 2 brushes when BF went to to Pro store in SF.
4. numerous ebay hauls and online hauls for China Glaze and OPI nail polishes.

There is MAC in my country, but it is just slightly cheaper in the States.

A few years ago DH and I went to NYC and we both went to SAKS where I treated myself to all of the NARS eyeshadow duos that he’d produced so far then.

I’ve also bought the whole collection of Inoui ID’s eyeshadow quads. Well except for quad 25, it was LE for a holidays collection.

My first time at mac I spent over 300 dollars on 2 brushes, 2 blushes a fafi quad, 3 or 4 shadows, face powder, blot powder, foundation, oil based face wash m/u remover and a fluidline umm I think that’s it lol my bigest haul ever

when i spent over £170.00 on just normal stuff like foundations n concealer ect. also picked up two brushes then. that was my 1st proper Mac haul.

It was definitly the cult of cherry and the over rich collection, i remember they came out the same day and i got 7 pigments, 2 quads, 4 lipglasses, three lipsticks, 3 matteens, 1 blush, and 4 eyeliners (not from the collection). I remember the girl at the debenhams counter was pretty amazed but thankfully they’d 10% off that day lol.

Hello Kitty and Sugarsweet emptied me out badly.. especially since they were released so close together.. I spend about 450 on Hello Kitty and about 200 on Sugarsweet.. but I love everything I got so money well spent!

Definately when Hello Kitty was released!

I got the Tahitian Sand Beauty Powder
both blushes
both quads (which I still use virtually everyday!)
the brush set
Fast Friends gloss
Fashion Mews lipstick
the Hello Kitty eyelashes
both Lip Conditioners
three pigments- Deep Blue Green, Reflects Blue and Very Pink (so glad that came back-should’ve have bought it when it came out for Metal Urge- another collection that wazs a weakness of mine!)

I also treated myself to another Zoom lash mascara, then went back a couple of days later and got some eyeshadows (I forget how many- I keep buying like 3 or 4 at a time)and the Studio Fix Foundation.

Needless to say..I bought no clothes..shoes..etc for the rest of the month!

I regularly leave £100 ($150) at Mac when new collections come out, I bought ALL the Grand Duos, 7 Dazzleglasses, and several items from Sugarsweet and BBR and Rose Romance.
I did also buy both diamond dust powders (or whatever they’re called) plus a quint from Dior once in one go (about £130 ($200) worth).

Last Christmas where I was given a $400 gift card. I presented a list of 25 items to the surprised MA.

i don’t think i ever really hauled. even at the 2 sale events I had been, i just bought few items. i prefer working on one or two pieces at a time. 🙂

I don’t do big hauls. I’d say the most was the first Dazzleglass collection and even then I got pieces over time. I ended up with 5 of them, but I got them over 3 or 4 different purchases.

I know how to talk myself out of purchases, so I normally only end up with one or two products from any given collection.

I don’t really haul like others, but my last few trips to the CCO resulted in about $100/ea (a few pigments, a couple shadows, a couple of lipglasses and a msf each time)

I only ever want either nothing, or one or two items per collection BUT I did buy 5 of the Cremesheen Glasses. My biggest haul was my first time in a MAC store when I bought some basics.

Sugarsweet was my biggest collection haul: all the shadesticks and lippies except one plus an eyeshadow.

Biggest overall haul was when I was building up my neutrals and stocked up on 15 e/s, a couple of empty palettes, two blushes, and six l/s. Not a huge haul compared to some but a lot for me.

Two collections : Barbie and Cult of Cherry !
For Barbie, I got the 6 e/s, 1 beauty powder, 1 lipstick. And for CoC, 3 quads, 2 lipgloss, 3 lipsticks and gifts for my babysister.

Now I’m more “raisonnaible” (but I still buy very cosmetics lol)

My biggest hauls always come from the Cosmetics Company Store. If I lived closer to my parents I’d be hauling from there ALL the time because the one in their city is crazy stocked. As it is, I still go nuts at the one around here.

One weekend, I did a combo f/s store/CCS/Fragrance Outlet (NYX cosmetics) haul.
5 eyeshadows
a beauty powder blush
Studio Sculpt foundation
two lipsticks
a lipglass
MAC store:
2 eyeshadows (one pan, one pot)
Studio Sculpt concealer
a lipglass
a Grand Duo blush
Frangrance Outlet:
7 NYX eyeshadows
2 NYX lipglosses
1 NYX jumbo eye pencil

That was my worst dent yet…I’m hoping I don’t go any worse than that in one go ever again! It was fun, but soooo expensive.

It was Hello Kitty. I got both eye quads, all the lipglasses, 2 lipsticks, one BP, the brush set, the HK doll, ummm…. some other stuff also!
But Style Warriors is going to be almost as big for me!
