I don’t.. haha I try not to think about it because I don’t want to know.. it would shock me and probably embarass me haha I’d feel vain but I’m not really, i just lovvvvvvvvve colors and shimmerrrr. haha sigh, addiction at its finest.

I absolutely agree with you. If I would track what I have spent from January 2nd to today, I think I have reached to about $900 – give or take.

not really, but when I do buy beauty products I tend to go “okay this is how much I’m going to spend” and spend that budget I set. so I don’t go overboard lol but I don’t really track how much I spend. my splurges comes and goes haha

I’d rather not know, lol. I have added up my monthly ebay spending before and it shocked me, but also that’s not the only place I buy make up from, so the total is probably more I’d care to admit. 😉

Last year I knew how much I was spending at least, but I would buy stuff that I really didn’t need or something I wanted to try. This year I am going to budget and only buy things I *really* like, or something unique that I do not have already.

I was just thinking that yesterday as I walked past Sephora “if I knew how much money I spent there, I’d probably call myself a dumb bit**.” It’s ridiculous!!! =O
Maybe I should keep tally of it all this year to keep beauty expenses down? I know mac’s having their sale right now, but I can’t think of one reasonable purchase.

Like many of you I would not like to know, because it would mean that I would have to start budgeting my makeup addiction 🙂

Gee…for the past year I have spent so much I want to cry. It’s my new addiction and I am an university student…can you believe that? Now that MAC is having this 25% sale…..to be honest….I can’t let this sale go, so I kinda went crazy. (blush)

well, i set a monthly budget for my makeup *habit*, but i rarely stick to it – lol! honestly, there are some months that i go ridiculously over (like last month and probably this month!). and there are months that i don’t buy much…so that’s my justification. 😀

Hmm yeah I definately know everything I buy and how much I spend on it. I’m not surprised most pepple don’t, though! haha!

I would spend $50 in a GOOD month. However, usually I spend from $100 to $200. In my defense, I gotta say that this includes ALL beauty spending: so, make-up, skincare, manicures, pedicures, hairproducts, and haircuts.

What about you, Christine?

I don’t really keep track, but I should because I know I spend a ridiculous amount. I would say at a minimum I probably spend $200 a month. Months where there are big launches I definetly spend more.

I have a monthly budget, but it is generalized. I can see what I spend in each category if I look, but I don’t really care, as makeup fits into my fun money. It only becomes an issue if I have spent my monthly fun money too early and can’t do anything else.

Rio, you said it all.

i stick to reasonable monthly budgets too.
i also write lists of products i’m dying to get and stick to buying them, and obviously with more priority given to limited editions. wheee!
although there are exceptions like when off on travels, i’d buy more stuff for fun and for special occasions i’d treat myself a little more than usual etc. why on earth not, eh? 🙂
