The Wednesday Question


When it comes to impulse beauty purchases, what's your biggest weakness?

For me, it's lip balms that have a unique fragrance/flavor. They're usually inexpensive, so I'm prone to impulse-purchases without giving them much thought. I'm also a sucker for a unique nail polish. If I spot something new at the drugstore that catches my eye and I don't think I have anything else like it in my stash, it usually ends up in my basket.

  1. Nail polishes! Sometimes lipsticks too, because I never buy them if I actually think it through. I don't really wear lipstick but I like the idea of it.

  2. Weirdly enough, it's mascara. I'm still waiting to find the perfect one, and you can't really know what works for you without trying it, even if you read reviews.

    1. Oh gosh. I take that back. I have to agree with everyone else — I'm way worse with nail polish. I've even bad about super expensive (hello Chanel) nail polish.

  3. Cheeeeap nail polishes! If there's a new Sinful Colors or NYC display, chances are I'm going home with half of them. >.<

  4. Most def nail polish. I have this need to buy Every.Single.Time I am in a store.

    The most ironic thing is, my nails are nekked right now.

  5. hands down nail polish! Every new collection I'm there! I'm trying to cut down on impulse purchaseing though.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Nail polish for me! Lol! I can get like that with eyeliners too but they have to be great quality. Mascara is a trial and error. But definitely nail polish tops the list!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hands down... It has to be lipstick! My goodness. I own EVERY Wet 'n Wild Mega Last lipstick and a bunch of others. It's sickening. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Lip gloss! I have so many I have to keep them in several tins!

    ReplyDelete
  9. My weakness isn't a specific type of product. I get really impulsive when I see new releases because they all have their own special, colorful display that always draws me in. And somehow I end up walking to the cashier with the product in hand. And if the new release is a limited edition product then I can't exhibit any self control. Any tips for this awful behavior?

    2. No cure that I know of.. lol. I'm right there with you.

  10. SALES! LOL! Every time I promise myself no more makeup this month, this season, whatever, I am defeated by some stumbling over some ridiculously good deal. And browsing a sale for some item I had planned to get usually leads to me getting something else entirely! So dangerous.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Lip products, and most recently, lipstick! I just want all the colors LOL but I try to justify it by telling myself I only buy super cheap makeup from elf wet n wild and NYC, etc, and I only buy other brands when they're on sale! I'm a cheap hoarder le sigh

    ReplyDelete
  12. Nail polish for sure. I have wayyyyy too much. Almost 100 bottles. Its so easy when you can share colors and its so cheap!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Essie nail polishs!! I have a zillion of them!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Nail polish, nail polish, and more nail polish. Oh, and brown eye shadow, like I don't already have every shade known to womankind. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Nail Polish and lip balm, I only buy when they're at least 75% on sale though! Unless they're $1-$2 to start with *_*

    ReplyDelete
  16. Definitely new mascara releases but only when it comes in waterproof since that's all I wear. I impulsively buy them because a) I am a lashes girl b) it's hard to find waterproof versions sometimes!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I have a lot of weaknesses, but if a product is favorably reviewed on this blog, I am especially susceptible. It's your fault! LOL

    1. Lol!! Well, I guess I can take the blame for that one. ;) But when I really like something, I just HAVE to share it with you!

  18. Nail polish and lip balm are my weakness, everytime I walk into a store I'm looking for them and end up with something in my basket.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have two. Mascara because I'm a sucker for anything that promises thick lashes, and tinted lip balms. I love tinted lip balms.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Nail polish and lip balms, I can't walk into a store without checking if there is anything new and even then one or two or five, lol seem to end up in the basket.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Tinted lip balms and nail polish.

    ReplyDelete
  22. New or LE lip balms and nail polish, especially blues (not navy tho)I simply cannot resist. Want to hear something a bit sick? I am going to Key West next week for a vacay and you know what I am finding really exciting? There is a CVS next to my hotel! I must be nuts!!! LOL!!

    1. I hear ya! That's what I call...an unchartered CVS! *sounds the horn* :D

      Delete
    2. If that's nuts, then I must be insane! Lol!! Whenever i'm in another city, I seek out ALL the ”foreign” drugstores! :)

      I'm sounding the horn too! ;)

      Delete
    3. Omg!!!! I am so glad I am not the only one! I really thought I was! Hahaha! (Big sigh if relief )

      Delete
  23. Lipstick! I own way more than I should, and really, what woman needs 15 red lipsticks?! I don't even wear red lipstick that often. :c

    ReplyDelete
  24. Either nail polish or new drugstore makeup items, I always go for both of those :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. It's definitely nail polish, but I don't even hesitate when I find a dupe for a high end nail polish.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Beauty on sale. Beauty in cute packaging (see Physicians Formula). Nail polish. Maybelline Color Tattoo. But I always need a sale and a coupon.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Eye shadows. All the eye shadows. I'm terrible, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'd have to say lip balms, nail polish and BB creams.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Lip products - balms, lipsticks, lip glosses, jumbo crayons, anything but potted lip balms. And sometimes blush, if I'm in a blush mood, but mostly I buy lippies. And new releases, even if they're *not* LE - I have to have them *now*.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Nail polish, especially glitters. I'm obsessed with them

    ReplyDelete
  31. Lip balms. I'll usually have a couple in different parts of the house, a couple in my bag, one in each coat/jacket. And then I have tinted versions. And I'm usually particular with what I want in my lipbalm (emolliency, how it sits) but I never throw out ones I don't like, I just keep it around cause I go through them so fast or sometimes lose them that I feel better having a dozen backups.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sigh. Nail polish for sure. I've bought like five this week just going into the store for other things. And lip balms, especially Burt's Bees and/or anything with a unique flavor.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Limited edition palettes, clearance sales, and if I have a coupon, it's mine!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Nail polishes and lip products...esp. lip balms

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow lots of nail polish! If I could grow my pathetically weak nails I suppose I'd be more susceptible, lol. For me its lipstuff: balms (found the new Niveas yesterday w00t!) gloss, stains, chubby sticks, glossy stains, any new type of moisturizing l/s (I'm dry so matte is bad) , you name it I probably want to try it.
    also obsessed with blush but slowing down as I am running out of space and I REALLY need to use some up first so I feel less guilty. Time for a stash clean out and rotation!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Nail polish! It's so bad that I don't even know what shades I have and have bought the same shades twice several times; guess that means I really like it, huh? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  37. Primarily nail polish especially sale or clearance and after that ELF products. I mean come one $1 - 3 who can resist just bought another $1 eyeshadow quad ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have to agree with everyone that said nail polish, I have over 400 bottles and still want more :)
