This week we had an incredible reaction to our lovely Laura and her Armani Crema Nuda review which will all agreed was brilliant but the price.
As a youngster I used to dream of being so rich pounds would be as irrelevant to me as pennies - sure I'll just throw a hundred of them in the poor box - but unless I win the lotto that's never gonna happen. It would only be in that case that I would consider spending that kind of money (175 frickin' euro!) on makeup.
Over the years, despite still being almost as cash-strapped as I was as a student, I have found my fingers loosing on the purse strings when it comes to skin care and makeup. I don't automatically go to Penneys for my makeup fix, for example, I will buy a mascara from Lancôme (guess which one) because I like it the very best. I can't stop myself from picking up a bottle of Estée Lauder Double Wear every couple of months either, because I just prefer it to everything else and I think it suits me. For those very tight months I will grab a Catrice mousse foundation even though the lightest shade is just a tad too dark for me.
Crème de la Mer is one of those skin care brands that you hear only fabulous reports about but I could not bring myself to buy a pot for myself. I got a little sample a while back and guarded it with my life!
Do you splash out on certain products? If you are on a budget would you put money aside for a specific item or do you downgrade? Or, does your makeup and skincare stash look like a counter from Brown Thomas?
