    I love makeup...granted I hardly wear any these days but I still love it nonetheless. I was cleaning out one of my makeup trunks today and decided to count my MAC eyeshadows and the final count was 65!!
    And that's just shadows, I didn't get to count the lipsticks and glosses.
    Which I know it may sound crazy and obsessive but there's something about those little black containers that makes me feel so good. My obsession with MAC started about 7 years ago (this feels like a confessional, "HI, I'm Jessica, and I'm addicted to MAC"...LOL)...but I also love other brands of makeup: BareMinerals, Stila, Lancome (the best mascara ever!), Smashbox...and even drugstore makeup (which is where it all began for me).

    So I wonder if there are other crazy make-up people like me on BDW or am I the only nut?

      I'm not a crazy makeup person... yet.... I did just crazily spend $350 on makeup for the wedding (and beyond lol). Since I spent so much money I'm about to become a crazy makeup person! I do love mac tho. I have to agree that the little black containers draw you right in!

        wow!! i dont think I've ever spent that much on makeup on one trip...but its your wedding makeup so its totally worth the splurge!! I wish I would've done a little more with my eyes on my wedding day but I went pretty natural since my lip color was strong.

          Me, me!!

          I have the Bare Escentuals addiction. The sales this time of year are soooo good, and the makeup is GREAT. Until I tried BE, I never wore much makeup except for powder, mascara and lip gloss. Wearing BE has actually cleared up my skin, and I love the wide range of colors that compliment my coloring.

          I got my sister and mom hooked on it too!

            Yeah, I had a lesson to learn how to do my own makeup for the wedding and she just started putting things aside that we were using. She made me makeup that matches my skin tone. All the sudden at the end she told me how much everything was and I almost fainted! I did get a couple of makeup brushes which were expensive, but there better be gold in the rest of the stuff! lol

              I'm a makeup junkie lol! Especially MAC lip gloss...I just love going to the counter to check out the new stuff. I do want to try a new foundation called Makeup Forever. I heard it was really good but a bit pricey.

                I totally understand the addiction! The first year I became a teacher I replaced all of my makeup with MAC. I have an appointment for a trial before we leave for the wedding, can't wait!!

                  Same here. I got started at Walgreens just looking at everything and trying all the different colors (buying then trying of course) and then I found Sephora, and it was all over...BTW Diorshow Mascara is the best IMHO! I get compliments on my lashes and I always say I will thank Christian for the compliment.

                  I worked at Sally's in HS and I think that is where I got into that stuff, but then it was more like dying my hair all the time.

                  Its fun to see how a new color can change you before your eyes. Yes, its obsession. Glad I'm not alone. ;-)

                    OMG Lancome makes the best mascara out there, glad I'm not the only one who thinks so. If I didn't make such crap pay, I would be an expensive makeup addict, unfortunately my salary doesn't allow it yet hehe.

                      BE is really good, I only have tried their foundation and the mineral veil...it really leaves your face flawless. my friend hooked me on it. I havent tried their shadows or anything else though, have you?

                      I've heard of Makeup Forever and yes they are pretty pricey. Let me know if you try their foundation...I've seen their products at Sephora.

                      Thanks, I thought I was the only one!! Hope your trial session goes great!!

                      sephora is like make-up heaven! love that store....I've heard a lot of great things about Diorshow mascara, does it come in waterproof? For some reason my lashes only stay curled with waterproof mascara...I've tried a dozen other good mascaras (that are not waterproof) and they dont keep the curl.

                      Lancome Definicils Waterproof has been my favorite for years, its pricey but so worth it (IMO)...I bought a tube right before leaving for my wedding, its the one makeup essential I HAD to have. I wonder why I didnt go crazy buying a sh*tload of makeup before I left...all I bought was the mascara, a MAC lipstick and liner...thats all. probably because I such a procastinator and was running out of time! LOL
