    Lipgloss!! It always adds that little something to any look!

  2. Marissa

    I love buying blush and eyeshadow!

  3. Val

    Lip stuff. Any kind of lip stuff. Lip gloss, stick, stain, scrub or balm. I loves them all.

  4. lipstick – because you can just whip it on and BAM instant change. but blush is also good because its the same, yet it will last YEARS longer being in powder form! which always gives me peace of mind

  5. AlyxVeee

    I went into MAC today and swatched (on hand) like 4 or 5 shades of lipstick (hot pinks) and got satisfaction from it. So I’ma go with lipsticks too lol

  6. StellarStace

    eyeshadow. it’s a sick addiction for me.

  7. Az

    2 yrs ago it was pigment. But now I think I’m officially obsessed with lipsticks 😀

  8. Lipsticks and eye shadows :] YAY!

  9. Kewal

  10. Cat

    Eye shadow and blush >_< It's a tie!

  14. melly

    blush! there’s so many to choose from! stains, pressed/loose powders, gel. am i missing any? haha

  15. Jessica

    Lipstick has got to be my favorite. I don’t wear eyeshadows so my money gravitates toward lipsticks and lip products. I’m easy on the eyes with just eyeliner and mascara.

  16. Vale

    Eyeshadows. No doubt. I LOVE eyeshadows!

  17. rowan

    eyeshadow and anything new/innovative!

  18. My Fave are blushes and eyeshadows from MAC cosmetics.
    I luv it!

  19. Angie

    I love buying eyeshadows. I find it hard to find lipsticks I know I’ll be happy with, and I always have to stop myself from buying 20 lipglosses in similar shades.

  20. Faye

    Lipstick and blush, I don’t know why ^-^

  21. Cole

    Anything lip wise!

  22. Ophelia

    I can never get enough lipstick. :)

  26. amelia

    BLUSH! and like pretty palettes and boxed sets like beneFits

  27. Crissy

    I love lipstick too 😀

  28. Hilana

    I could simply not resist a gloss or a lipstick. And I am forever searching for the perfect muted gold for my eyes…. I have still not found it! :)

  29. i’m totally addicted to blushes at the moment.
    can’t get enough.

  30. lazeny

    That would have to be lipstick. Once, I had so many of them that I was forced to give some away. I tend to buy a lot of lipsticks in one shopping trip.

  31. make_up_maven

    Definately eyeshadow, then liner, then lipstick. I’m starting to have a seriouis storage problem! LOL

  32. It used to be lip gloss but now it’s lipstick!

  33. I love lipstick and blush. You can create endless “faces” with the same blush, eyeshadow, everything, and different lipstick colours. Loves!

  34. Eyeliner~ Particularly the gel/cream type.

  35. Emily

    eyeshadow, hands down.

  36. Bahar

    Eyeshadows, blushes and brushes.. Does it have to be one item? 😀

  37. Pigments and eyeshadows! I just can’t help myself 😉

  38. Anitacska

    The pretty type, lol. Seriously, I don’t really mind, eyeshadows, blushes, lipsticks, lipglosses, MSFs, shimmer powders, love them all. :) But to be honest, buying foundation and mascara isn’t the height of my shopping trip – a must, but less enjoyable than picking up a beautiful MSF or eyeshadows. :)

  39. Virginia

    I’ve got a thing for eyeshadow, especially neutrals and taupes – love them!

  40. Veronica

    For me, nothing is better than purchasing a new lipstick or lipgloss!

  41. Leea

    I love to buy eyeshadows and eyeliners. :)

  42. Amal

    a while ago I was into eye liners – All types. Now into Lipsticks and lipglosses. Not sure what’s next :-)

  43. Kajsa


  44. Marcella

    BLUSH <3

  45. I looooove buying Eyeshadows(particularly if its a nice palette, though its been a long time since there was one I wanted) Also, lipsticks. I love the BRIGHT things that you get an instant effect wtih . I don’t get as excited about buying blush, but I also like choosing foundations, since you have to be so much more demanding.

  46. jollie

    definetely liptstick and eyeshadows.

  47. Christina M.

    Eye shadow palettes in LE packaging!

  48. Chiara

    I buy a lot of eyeshadows (especially green eyeshadows),and a lot of eyepencils! I can’ t stop!

  52. Jen

    Definitely eyeshadow! I can’t have enough shades and I loooveee going nuts buying new ones.

  61. Jaci

    Eyeshadows…lately, I’ve been buyin’ up the Mac…mac counter, other mac counter, cco. But it’s funny, they’ve all been similar shades. Someone needs to smack my hand…”no, Jaci, put down that neutral!”

  62. Wenny

    Currently into blush and eyeshadows :)

  63. Nadine

    Lip products!

  64. Rocio

    Eyeshadows and blushes big time. However lately I’m addicted to foundations and concealers and lipstick’s. I’m so in trouble.

  75. Alejandra

  76. Kristen

    eyeshadows! Love all the new color combos I can come up with just by purchasing one or two new colors.

  77. AnGeLwInGz

    Shadow and lip gloss. Eyeliners are becoming a habit too. You need one to match every shadow, right?

  78. Michele

    Lipsticks/lip gloss with eyeshadow close behind.

    Eyeshadow and now very into lipsticks! =)

  80. Erika

    Everything that`s named MAKEUP!

    Right now I`m obessesed to eyeshadow.
    But I love blush and new stuffs.

  81. Luisafer

    anything for the lips!!! moisturizers, lipstick, lipgloss!!! everything!!! don’t know why…

  82. Hannah

    Eyeshadows by far!
    But im starting to like lippies because I like using them as blush aswell…but my lips are usually too cracked to wear any lip products except anything moisturising

  83. Liz

    Eyeshadow, by far! I don’t like shopping for lipstick as much because I don’t like to try testers on my lips (no matter how sanitized), so I never know what I will end up with. I also suck at matching foundations and concealers, so that’s out. But eyeshadows are fun! So many colours and textures!

  84. Jo

    It started with a tube of lip balm…

    And now, most of my makeup collection is stuff for lips!

  85. Erin

    blush! or lipbalms and lipsticks

  86. Dani

    Definitely eye shadow, then lip gloss. Those are the items I have the most of. I am getting more into lip sticks now. So much fun.

  87. Lila

    eyeshadow & eyeliner.
    they give me the most out of anything besides foundation.
    i think the eyes are one of the most important features.

  88. Kim L

    I am obsessed with all makeup but I loooove to buy lipstick. I buy so much that I give away about 75% of it!

  89. starr

    lipgloss and lipstick! can change your whole face with just those

  90. Christina

    Eyeshadows, definitely, I get so excited at the possibilities, haha! But I always get a rush when I buy lipsticks too!

  91. Alicia

    eye shadow. its a serious addiction.

  92. DallasBrownEyes

    Love, love, LOVE collecting eye shadows, especially MAC and UD. And weirdly, I also love collecting lip liners. Just bought Boldly Bare and Stripdown this past weekend!

    I am an eyeshadow addict!

  94. Sharon

    I love eyeshadow and eye liners!
