My biggest one lately has been Mac Colour Craft, I got a LOT of stuff, in the region of $450 or so. :O Worth it though, I love mineralized stuff, and the lipsticks (I got 3) and lipglasses (5) are lovely too.

I recently threw out a lot of make-up that was running out or I got bored of, so i spent Β£150 on MAC Colour Craft and some other staple items from MAC just to get my collection back up to normal. I’ll probably spend more this weekend when i go shopping!

My latest splurge took place at Lush. I expect some mayor haulage at MAC next week, when the Makeup Art Cosmetics collection comes out.

for me it was 6 mac products. im stll relatively new to mac so i bought 3 lipstick, 2 blush and painterly paint pot

My last splurge was a long time ago since I was trying to save money. Though MAC’s Colour craft collection might change that!

My Urban Decay order with the friends and family discount. I spent about $110, but saved around $80. and yes, TOTALLY worth it!! I LOVE UD

Recently I’ve bought a lot from the MAC Colour Craft collection (4 MSF’s, a gloss and a blush). I also got 4 e/s from Love That Look, a l/s and Dazzleglass from Euristocrats II, a suntint from Baby Bloom and the Fresh Cut palette from Graphic Garden.

My CC is still crying hysterically…

I bought the VIP collection of Urban Decay eyeliners at Ulta for only $13.99. Technically this is not a splurge because I got 5 liners for less than one normally costs. And, yes I am VERY happy with my purchase.

I am so jealous! I am dying to know more about this product. Is it easy to use? What’s it all about really?

Hey Nicole15!
It’s really easy to use, and at least for me, gives great coverage (which I need) I totally understand that this is an investment which is why I saved for a while…The pods were a little difficult to get on and off at first, but now its super easy! I have not broken out from it and my skin is TERRIBLE. In fact, it may be getting better since I don’t have to risk using dirty brushes on my face!! I believe they are coming to all sephora stores in sept, so if you can hold off, check it out in person!

Hope that helps!

Me too Christine! I just did a Korres haul as well. I have been loving their line of Yogurt products for some time now, but wanted to try new things. Therefore, i recently dipped into their Wild Rose line. I got the Wild Rose Mask & Moisturizer, the Wild Rose Foundation & their Silicone-Free primer. I love, love, love everything i got & I love, love, love Korres!!

My order from Hautelook for Rock and Republic (I am also still awaiting my order from them for Urban Decay) . . . I still haven’t made it over to MAC to get the Makeup Art Cosmetics stuff (I am in trouble!!)

The MAC MAC collection(i’m so not spelling all that out) I spent more than 200 dollars which is something i NEVER do. It was totally worth it IMO. I’m wearing the 2 pigments and the glitter i bought right now. They’re beautiful πŸ™‚

ugh! I bought Makeup Forever HD concealer, primer, powder and a few other things at sephora. spent like $140!!!!!!!!

I can’t say that I splurge all at once but in increments – my last 5 purchases – weekends at a time

NARS – Modern Love Palette
NARS – Fast Ride Lipstick/Tokidoki Nail Polish

OOPS I hit enter too early

#3 – MAC – Molasses/Fly by Blu liners
MAC – Strike a Pose e/s
and #5 UD – Ammo Palette/Frigid delux e/s

Yeah I’m one that likes to spread out makeup shopping over periods of time. Sadly, I cannot remember a time I didn’t buy one makeup related product after a pay day!

Chanel’s eye glosses – not something I’ll be wearing a lot, but I just couldn’t resist having them πŸ™‚ And now I do, so I guess it was worth it πŸ™‚

It wasn’t a splurge really since I planned on buying a few items from the MAC collection. I got Off the Page e/s, Purple Shower e/s, Notable blush and Front Lit l/s. Prior to that I got everything from Love that Look. As well I got almost all of the MSF’s, MB’s, a few lipglasses and a few lipsticks from Colour Craft.

Mac e/s in Soba,Honeylust,bisque,Go,greensmoke,warming trend and pen n pink(got the last two at CCO)
Mac 226 crease brush
Nymphette lipglass
Teddy kohl liner
Beige-ing shadestick
2 tinted lipbalms (bronze Pink)- Bobbi Brown
1 stila lip glaze
I’m broke!

MAC, E/S Off the Page, Crest the wave, Fashion, Maira’s Mood, E/S Quad Photo Realism, lipsticks Full Body & Front Lit, Lipglass On Display, Notable Blush, MakeUp Forever E/S in#39, #49, #58. I got issues lol makeup is an expensive addiction πŸ˜‰

Bought the new Bare Escentuals Matte Foundation to try it out. I had used BE for 7 years until the Bismuth finally wreaked havoc on my face and I moved to liquid foundation 2 years ago. Matte has abysmal coverage and is so chalky! Eck! Immediately returned to Sephora.

Here goes – all mac eye shadows!

I just got paid – can’t you tell?!?!?!

I made a haul at CheryCulture.com because of the back to school 20% off that just ended, and got a lot of NYX stuff, since there are no places anywhere near me that carries that brand. I bought a /ton/ of lipsticks, a couple eyeshadow palettes, one trio, a couple singles, 3 blushes, and one cream blush. I can’t wait for it to arrive ^_^!

i went to MAC on the way back from my meeting early. To be fair i had a Β£20 Vochure for house of frasers and went in to buy greenstrokes paint pot but they were out of stock πŸ™ and then coulnt decide between the 217 and the 227 ended up getting the 227 which is priced at Β£20 for FREE yahhh!

I recently got MAC brushes: 208, 217 and 226. I also got MUFE HD foundation, Camouflage concealer and 1 aqua eyes eyeliner.:)

DiorSkin Nude foundation and matching loose powder! Best foundation ever! I’ve been getting a lot of compliments on it and how well it matches my skin tone.

Also DiorShow Iconic Mascara in Chestnut…My first high end mascara and I love it!

Diorskin Shimmer Star amber diamond

my cc is dead!!! but I’m oh so happy πŸ™‚ let’s hope I hate the black style collection…

It would have to be the MAC Make Up Art Collection and @ Sephora.

I got a new GHD flat iron *yay* and from the collection I got all 4 pigments, the 2 reflects, the 2 glitters, all liners, front lit l/s, the Photo Realism quad, gloss, and another tube of Studio Tint Moisture in Medium Dark <3 i love that stuff.

ive got MUFE high definition foundation and MAC tinted moisturizer… kindda in a dilemma on both of it….

ooops come to think of it i think i bought something during the Urban Decay Friends and Family.

Ive bought their cream shadows as well but hate it…return

Declaring Indigo Quad + Blue nail polish from Lancome
Mac Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection – Got 3 technakohls, photorealism, 2 pigments, 2 eye shadows, and some other things I cant remember
Mac 180 Brush

Yay :)!!

I just bought haunting, strike a pose and fashion groupie eyeshadows. I also bought the 242 brush, prep + prime line filler, and sweetie lipstick.

Haha, just the other day : two Shu Uemura shadows in blue and green, a Dior quint in green (like Natalie), two YSL Golden Glosses in pink and red, a YSL lipstick in a pinky-plum shade, two Chanel shadows called Amethyst and Bois Bleu, Chanel Hydrabase in Enigma and Lotus Rouge, plus Chanel Rouge Allure in Captive and Clandestine. Phew!

I got 2 liquid liners (in Perversion and Radium) and a sharpener for pencils at the UD sale, then I got Givenchy’s 9-color shadow in Poetique Blues. It is AMAZING.

If anything, started end of May and up until now, I’ve spent 600 on Online minerla makeup. EGM, TSS, AroM, AT, MEOW, Dreamworld, Fyr etc. All I bought were shadows, in sampe baggies or full sizes. I don’t want to spend $ on traditional cosmetic brands because they can’t beat my precious mineral makeup. (I’m talking about eyehsadows, I don’t wear any base makeup) they’re way better than MAC pigments IMHO and FS only come in 3 gram jar or 5 gram jar at a reasonable price since I can’t use a whole jar up anyway. I don’t regret it since nowadays, those traditional cosmetics just come out with disappointing stuff that I have dupes in my drawers. (The only downside with quality minerla makeup is fallout) And last MAC collection’s eyeshadows are somewhat gritty to my liking. so MMU rules!

The last *real* splurge I had was back during the MAC F&F sale- I spent $300. Lately I’ve just been disinterested in whats in stores/counters right now. But after I pay the last bit of my college tuition for this semester I’ll probably go spend some green at Lush and Sephora- Fall collections are always my favourite. :3 MAC-wise, I’m holding out for Style Black.

Ok let me just say I am a MAC junkie …
I got the entire Collection All 3 parts
6 eyeshadows
4 technakohls
4 pigments
4 glitters
4 lipsticks
4 lipglasses
3 quads
but only 1 blush

scary I know
