Splurge

I am pretty cheap.
I hate spending money when I don't have to.

Especially on my self...
and even more so on things that you use up.

But I make a big exception...
on my make-up.

I have been wearing it 14 years.
(Wow that is a lot... I am old.)

My mom ordered through the mail after a dermatologist recommended it.
Pre-internet orders were common place in our house.

I remember the first time I went to a boutique...
it was amazing to see it all in person.

I have tried to switch to cheaper drug store brands...
and I end up regretting it and going back.

It is my splurge and I am fine with that.

And here is a huge giveaway that would feel like a splurge to win...

Preaching to the choir sister! Been using B.E. For 10 years. My skin is beyond sensitive, so it's a must really. I think it's worth the price tag, it lasts forever.

The boutiques are like a candy store. Usually I walk in and try not to make eye contact with the sales girls so I won't buy MORE. Last time they got me to try the Buxom Lip gloss. Sold! Best gloss ever! But why would I doubt otherwise?

Forward this to Leslie what's-her-owner-infomercial queen. You might get some freebies, or featured in the next infomercial!

I apologize for my novel. Can't put a price tag on beauty...or un-blotchy skin!

I cannot use anything else! Gotta start my day with my Bare Minerals! My newest favorite is my Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment (Rose) - $22 for lip gloss, but I love it!

OMGoodness ladies! We should join a club! I have had a love affair with Bare Minerals for 8 years, & we are still in love!

Nessa I'm so happy to see you in this linky girl!

A girl's gotta have her makeup! If that's your only splurge then I think you are doing great!

i've been wanting to try this forever! my fear is that it's just so messy and it'll get everywhere and i'll waste it in the process. maybe it must be worth it!

I have wanted to try this forever, but I just can't bring myself to shell out the cash since I don't usually wear much makeup. But you are right--the occasional splurge is worth it and SO important!

Yes, there's times when splurging is necessary - this looks like a good make up. I was given a mineral powder last Christmas, had never used one before, and it goes on so well. I'm a fan.

I splurge on make-up too...but haven't gone this direction yet. There is a boutique in town...maybe I should give it a whirl!

I HAVE to have my Bare Minerals! I am a super pale girl but I'm not ghost white, orange or pink and so it's the ONLY make-up I've EVER found that matches my skin...it's my splurge item too, that' for sure!
