The Lipstick League – week of 11.07.11

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 18 - 2011

This week’s around the blogosphere love in…

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

Oh… oh.  Err.  My husband reads my blog yano?  Especially when I don’t want him to.  It’s a sixth sense, like spidey sense but less cute and more likely to get me in trouble.

I bought a £40 blush a few months ago and I like Elemis.  A lot.  I’m also getting a taste for perfumes that go beyond sensible prices.  I’m trying to be coy about it… ok, it’s probably a Creme delaMERDEthatsexpensive eye cream that was…. ok.

But the thing is, for me… it’s the fripperies that add up.  All those little “ooh that’s a bargain, I’ll just get this, this and this” that end up costing more than I bargained (harhar) for.
