A little of both. Tried and true doesn’t always work for me, so there are times when exploring new things isn’t just fun.. it’s necessary. :]

Both, either or.

It is arrogant to assume that only the newest product innovations have any merit, and ignorant to assume that modern science could have accomplished nothing against old favourites.

Basically, I look at everything first… Everything new. But if there are products that I already know and like, I’ll go to those first.
Unless something new really “poke” my eyes, I won’t go straight to those, or only if I have the possibility to go to the shop and try it out. Because I can’t always go to shops so if I order online i’ll order what i’m sure about.

I used to be about the latest and greatest. Then I read Paula B.’s The Beauty Bible. Now, I am all about ingredients.

I used to think that the biggest companies had the most money for reseach and development and therfore had the best products, but now I know that they just have the most money for advertising gimicks. The cosmetic industry is very loosly regulated and they can basically claim products can do anything with out research.

I love new products, and often try new things out, and will buy most of the new pretty make up that I see. I find that with make up it doesn’t make a huge difference what products I use (although I tend to prefer high end make up nowadays), but with skincare it does. I have bought many lotions and potions just to leave them half finished and gathering dust, so I try to limit my purchases to tried and tested.

A little bit of both because I love discovering new products but I lean more towards try and true especially with skin care because it is hard to find a skin care regime that is fitting sometimes and it always take awhile to see the true results. I stick with it until it does not work for me anymore and/or I will sample others on the side.

I just buy what I like. If it’s old or new doesn’t matter to me. If I come across it and love it…I buy it. I do try new things once in a while, but there is a ton of products that I want that I haven’t picked up yet. Oh the stress.

I go with both. I have to use Benefit’s Erase Paste because my dark circles make it look like someone punched me lol. I have products that are my faves that I won’t switch, but I love trying new things.

I think certain products make me a creature of habit like my Aveeno face lotion, but how would I know I loved those things if I didn’t take a chance and buy it first on the other hand when I get curious and buy a supposed latest greatest product and it sucks, I get pissed I wasted that 10 bucks ya know. It’s a love hate relationship with trying new things.

I mostly just look online or in person. Some products I have such as foundation and moisturizer I won’t change…for me those are two of the hardest to find that fits what I am looking for.

Both. I’m pretty loyal when it comes to products that I like and that seem to work for me, but I’m always curious to try something new.
