The Lipstick League - week of 7.11.11

Question of the Week:

  • What’s the most you’ve ever spent on a beauty product?

This question is a little tough to answer, "beauty product" is such a general term, are we talking skin care, hair care, and makeup products? Well, I will answer this in a few different ways. The most I have ever spent on a skin care product was back when I started testing Creme de la Mer products. The moisturizer alone was between 135.00 and 250.00 depending on what size you purchased. The most I have ever spent on a single hair care product had to be when I purchased Philip B's White Truffle Shampoo and Conditioner, my wallet was really hurting at that point. Last but not least, I think the most I have ever spent on a single makeup product was recently when I fell in love with Le Metier de Beaute Peau Vierge Anti-Aging Complex Tinted Treatment, I love this product and think it's worth every penny... and it's a lot of pennies.

Enough about extreme spending, on to this weeks links...

The most I've ever spent $200 something on La Prarie eye cream... it wasn't worth it LOL. Oh I guess I also bought the big Clarisonic for $300 when it first came out. It broke me out really bad and I returned it though. XD

I hate eye creams that are so expensive yet nothing happens. OMG, I can't believe the Clarisonic broke you out, I'm sorry. =(
