I just spent $350 on make-up...

Recommended Posts

...and now I feel guilty as crap! Let me preface by saying I am really cheap about some things and splurge on others. Make-up is something I am really cheap about (usually)! I always buy drugstore brand make-up. I went to Ulta today just to get some foundation and powder for my wedding. The girl ended up doing my whole face, and I loved it so I bought everything. I feel sooooo gulity now.

 

I guess I can't me mad at FI for buying Sirius radio a few weeks ago...

yeah, I normally spend very little on make-up, but for the wedding I spent 200$ (about 75$ for expensive eyeshadow and liner, 125$ for drugstore everything else).

 

At least you will get lots of use out of it, versus spending 50-70$ to have your make-up professionally done once.

It will last a LONG time so stop feeling guilty. :) Granted you don't drop it like I have done. I lost my powder and bronzer during the trip- I dropped both and I was really pissed that it busted all up and it was barely used!

I feel you on this one. I had my makeup done at a salon before the trip, and loved everything. So, I went out and bought it all and spent @ $250.

 

I used to buy drugstore make-up, but I'm a total convert now. I loved the ways it looked, felt, and the fact that it lasted, didn't crease, etc.

 

I do think there's a difference ... DH almost had a heart attack. I told him it was kind of like his "golf habit" :-)

 

have fun!

i love make-up. I alweays spen a rediculous amount of money on lip gloss carzy eye shadows that I wear one or two times a year and then it sits...and collects dust. But new make-up sure is fun :)

Oh I hear ya! I went to Nordstroms Sunday and bought my fair share of Laura Mercier make up $500 later, (bought brushes too). But I sure am enjoying it!

i'm cheap too but when it comes to make-up i splurge a little. it will last much longer than any non brand in a drugstore. plus it's good that you got it now because you have a chance to play around with it before the big day. i wouldn't worry too much about the cost.
