None of my friends and family care about makeup like at all so no I guess lol. BUT I will explode on twitter a few times to express my love and jubilation. Once I get my beauty blog up, I may just 😉

I discover it the last week and is the Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 from Mac. Is great!!!! Very beautifull finish and easy application!

Why keep it a secret??? What a b*tchy thing to do! I tell everyone and lots of times I even go out a buy the things for my friends/fam so they can try it

Lulee, you must have been reading my mind 🙂 I feel the same way and am often giving samples or full size products to my friends who are into make-up and skin care.

I tell anyone and everyone! Usually via my blog, Twitter, etc. People are always searching for reviews and recommendations. I like having a voice & possibly helping others 🙂

I don’t, only becauseI don’t know any makeup junkies in real life; they’re all sick of hearing me go on and on about duochrome and stuff haha :p

Same here! No one i know cares, they usually think i’m crazy. even my husband rolls his eyes everytime i come home with a new buy. He says wow that’s nice-looks like every other color you own.

Tell like no other, I work on a conjoined benefit/guerlain counter (i’m on the benefit side) and I fell in love with the rouge automatiques. Since we just phased out lots of lipstick colours, if we don’t have one someone’s after, i’ll grab a RA. I’ve made that side hundreds because of it, but I just adore the formula!

Out of curiosity, what store do you work in that has a Benefit counter AND a Guerlain counter?

“Amazing” products are nevertheless opinionated, subjective, works for some but not others, so no – I don’t go sharing unless someone asks for my opinion.

no one i know is the slightest bit interested in make up, if i told anyone about a product i like they would look at me confused and say get a life ha ha.

None of my friends would ever dream of spending the amount of money I do on cosmetics, so if I said to them “YSL have just brought out great new lipglosses” they’d take it as though I was showing off, pointing out that I can afford to buy expensive cosmetics.
But it’s not like that all! I just choose to spend money on makeup because I love it, not to show off about it!
And that’s why I love to talk about make up online…few people judge you, and everyone realises this is about so much more than just looking pretty or whatever.
I would say the last thing I bought that I loved – MAC Magically Cool powder in Truth & Light: fair skin tones, this is wonderful for giving you a glow that you can’t get as we haven’t got a tan!
It would be amazing to know someone in real life who liked make up seriously.

I’m with you on this one. My friends think I have a “problem” because I’ll drop half my paycheck on beauty! I work hard, and to me this is my passion. As long as I have a roof over my head etc..and I can afford it, I will continue to buy Chanel, YSL, Nars and whatever else I love. To each his own 🙂 PS. I only do that once a month or so LOL!

I tell everyone who might be interested (which is how I’ve got friends hooked on things like MAC’s Craving and Grand Entrance (they hate me for that one since it was LE). But quite a few of my friends/co-workers don’t wear any makeup at all, and have no interest, so I don’t tell them about “makeup-y” type finds!

sometimes 🙁 but i know i should tell to everyone around .. its bad habit 🙁
but my family and cousins dont care so am always left alone praising the stuff and that make me all the more sick

I tend to only tell a few close girlfriends about it, but that’s because they’re the only ones who’d care!

But I’m thankful Christine tells all of us, I’ve discovered so many new beauty loves that way! Hello, Jack Black lip balm!

Tell, for sure. I do the same with local businesses I love. Too many things I love have been discontinued or disappear. Maybe they wouldn’t if more people used them.

I like to tell people when I find stuff I love. Sometimes people are interested & want to try it, sometimes it’s not their style. But no harm done in sharing. 🙂
Unfortunately I don’t know a lot of people IRL who are into makeup, but that’s why we have blogs & YouTube channels! haha
