Just got a Maybelline Full n Soft mascara at a discount store for $3 today! Don’t need a new one yet, but for that price, I couldn’t pass it up.

Rich Mahogany and Mossy Green Color Tattoos by Maybelline
Charmed, I’m Sure and Love Goddess l/s from MAC

I don’t know if it counts, but I just bought the UD Smoked palette, and I primarily wanted a backup of Rockstar & Mushroom, which I have in the “old” formula, and I wanted another Loaded, which *really* makes brown eyes pop. I find greens to be a bit tricky, but this I wear alot.

I also just picked up L’Oreal Infallible in Smoldering Plum. It was on sale as a BOGO 50%, so I picked it up, although I have Burning Black. I wasnt’t sure they were *exactly* the same, but I figured it couldn’t hurt.

I usually only buy backups if there’s a BOGO Free deal, and usually only with foundation.

Tough as Taupe. It’s partially because it melted and separated in my car, but not really because I was able to fix it. It’s mostly because its a brilliant product that I’d hate for them to ever stop making.

I bought two palette refills of the MAC Pro Sculpting Powder in Sculpt. I was at South Coast Plaza and took advantage of the physical MAC PRO store! 🙂

MAC 35 Lash. These are my favourite lashes and I was really upset when MAC discontinued them so when they were repromoted with the Marilyn Monroe collection I had to stock up!!!

Oh craaaap read this wrong i thought you meant last beauty product bought in general ): Blonde moment and I’m not even blonde…

I rarely backup a product, mainly due to money issues, but I did recently buy a backup of MAC’s Forever Marilyn Beauty Powder. It’s perfect for us pale folk, and with a name like that it’s unlikely it will be re-promoted any time soon.

MAC’s Crew highlighting powder from the Hey Sailor! collection. I absolutely LOVE it & use the hell out of it. I don’t think I’ve bought a backup of anything else, ever, as I always wind up finding something I like better not long after. Most limited edition products don’t get me very excited, but this one is something I want to have around for a very long time.

Oh, actually, I’m wrong. I always buy a backup of my L’oreal Double Extend waterproof mascara because I use it all the time – I know it’s not limited edition or anything but it’s one of the rare mascaras that I really love & would be very upset if they ever discontinued it. Most flake like crazy & have rubbish, clumpy formulas with ridiculously enormous brushes that I just hate. I’m talking to YOU MAC, CoverGirl & Makeup Forever! Even the more expensive brands I’ve tested out I’ve found the same problems with. I also bought two of theBalm’s Two-Timer mascaras when they were on sale for about $8 each. Love the formula, brushes, everything about that mascara and don’t want to run out of it anytime soon. The stuff is bulletproof!

Oddly I don’t really buy backups, I might buy two of an item so I can have one in my ‘go to’ handbag make-up and one in my main stash.

The last actual backup must have been about 15 years and was a Max-Factor eye-shadow that was being discontinued. It was a great colour that I could use as a blush as well. Still trying to find a good dupe.

FUSION BEAUTY Balm Lip Conditioning Stick – in Butterscotch, my absolutly favorite Lip Balm and discontinued

Not so much a backup but duplicates so I can carry one in my bag and keep one where I put on my makeup – it would be GOSH pencil liners in Black Ink and Metallic Brass.

The Marilyn Monroe MAC Beauty Powder ‘Forever Marilyn’ – I absolutely love the colour on my face as an all-over highlighting powder, it’s the absolute perfect shade for me so I had to buy two!

MAC Real Posh lipglass from the Cosmetics Company Store because it’s limited edition, even though I’m on a no buy at this time.
