haha i went to mac to pick up some stuff from the hello kitty collection (just that cuz im on a tight budjet right now) but i ended up seeing a lot of other stuff i wanted and total i spent 390$ so i was like wow thats a lot and i totaled up my mac purcahses for the past 3 months and it was up to 1,200

Im a little addicted

Catching the train to Antwerp (an hour and a bit) to get to a MAC store, buy about 180 dollars’ worth of stuff and then take the train back. Lol, that was an expensive trip I have to say…

When the BBR collection came out, I took the plane in the evening to Londen Stansted Airport and went back in the morning to the netherlands. I slept on the airport and it was horrible, but after all, it was totally worth it. I spend about 150$ on MAC (tax free!).

hey there, if you ever need someone to send you MAC stuff let me know, btw Im going to AMS in 2 weeks, what part do u live in?

That’s an offer that I can’t resist! I live in Utrecht, 25 minutes from Amsterdam. MAC is so much cheaper in the UK than in the Netherlands, I wish I could travel every month to London to buy MAC!

called up every MAC store (where I live, in Singapore) to find out if they have Petticoat (but not on sale in Singapore) only to buy it when I was in Paris at the huge Sephora along champs de elyesses, yes, I hunt for my MAC around the world. Hong Kong, India, Europe you name it.

Before I said my answer,I am guessing the I will have the craziest of all the answers listed here.I had done a no. of crazy things but I will just name one here.

I love MAC Flashtronic collection so much that.. I bought the whole collection!! No big deal right? Here’s the crazy part..then I bought backups for it. Total pcs: Mercurial 28pcs,Ether 6pcs,Lovestone 7pcs,Tectonic 2pcs,By Jupiter 2pcs & the 3 MSF (northern light,gold spill and global glow).Spending more than $1.5k just on this collection.

Wow, that is kind of crazy! Well, if you ever decide to sell some of your backups let me know! 🙂

My craziest was probably calling Space NK in the USA to see if I can order the Chantecaille Protected Paradise face powder and eye shadow because they were much cheaper there, just to find that by the time they came and I paid the postage and customs duty, I hardly saved anything! :O

Well, I guess it did not come overnight, but just in eyeshadows, my MAC collection is worth USD 4.700…
Did not calculate on all of the rest!
Besides I collect falshies, I have a shoebox filled over the top. Some I will probably never use, just have to have them bacause they are fun and pretty. I will have to go to over 60 parties to get them all used. But it all gives me great joy, and that is the best excuse I have.

I’ve bought whole collections, bought ridiculously price LE items off ebay…but the one thing that amazes me is that I’ve managed to recruit my high school friend that lives in Jersey to buy me things I can’t get in Canada (where I live) & mail them to me…that boy is a saint!

This one is a bad one. I’m in college so whenever the semester start I always lie to my parents and tell them that my books cost $300 more than what they really are 🙁 for extra MAC money. My parents are so against my makeup habit I have to lie. Last spring semester, I didn’t buy any books because so many great collections were coming out and I wanted to have the extra money for it :(. I’m a lot better now.

Hmmm….. I think spending all my birthday money (85 bucks) on three eyeshadows and a slimshine from MAC was a little crazy. I wish they would have some sales! How do they compete when brands like Urban Decay sell eyeshadow palettes of they’re best-selling eyeshadows for a FIFTH of the price you would pay for as many MAC shadows, along with a mini bottle of shadow base? I dont shop at UD only bc I can’t find a store!

um, when i first started getting interested in makeup i would save up all the money i would get from my job every two weeks just spend it all at MAC or sephora. xD

i just spent 90 euros that were for school taxes to get chanel foundation+powder. Plus 60 on a bronzer and few eyepencils by MAC. I now feel shallow and guilty, but i look good! hehee now i have to figure out how to make this money on time to pay my school!

The craziest thing I do is taking the bus to the local CCO-I have to take at least four busses to get there, and it takes well over two hours each way. I also got up at 6 AM to order my Manish Arora stuff-and when I did, they were still putting the items up on the website!

Bought about $1000 worth of old mac collections.. because as much as I love mac I love learning about their old collections.. Geez… im officially crazy.

I spent so much money on MAC that I didn’t have enough to buy my ssiter a birthday gift!
whoops… 🙂

It’snot really crazy compared to you guys hahah but I ditched my glasses (which I actually loved) because I didnt like spending time on my eye makeup just to have it hide behind my glasses….

The craziest thing I ever did was take a 4 hour out-of-state round trip to the nearest CCO. I won’t be doing that again – luckily there’s one closer now.

girls.. these are some crazy stories!!!! i bought all the Hello Kitty lipsticks and glosses.. but returned half of them as they look to much like my other lipsticks.. thats about it with me.. i love my makeup but i love my shoes … shoes are a very bad habit.. i am very ashamed lol
BTW im in NJ
any one in europe who wants MAC, ill be glad to buy and ship to you ( thank god for paypal.. just reply to this comment.. i have it on follow up

oh that’s great! i live in portugal so most stuff takes years to get here. and you know there’s only two mac counters in my city, and only four total in the whole country. so you know what i mean. that’s a pretty good offer!
