Question of the Week: On average, how often do you make impulse beauty purchases? What type of product is your biggest weakness?

Answer: I’d say that about 30/70 of my purchases are an impulse/considered split.  There’s nothing quite like the anticipation of spying a product on counter and getting it into your hot little hands within 5-minutes of that first look but I know that I’m far, far more likely to be disappointed by those impulse naggings than I am something that I’ve researched to the hilt.  I almost always buy my considered purchases online too… usually because I buy them after doing my research through blogs and makeupalley etc!

My biggest impulse-weakness has to be for lip products and nail polishes… mostly because they’re less likely to disappoint than something like an impulse-bought foundation.
