Re: Count (if you dare)

Wow, I couldn't do that.  I'm so attached to my things.  I love that you got rid of stuff only to want more. Haha, I get wanting to try all those new things though.  I think that's how I ended up in my position.

Re: Count (if you dare)

I actually had to write a paper last year about consumerism where I was asked to manually tally up the amount of money I've spent on makeup. Ready for this? In the last three years I've spent $6,781.83 

Re: Count (if you dare)

That's crazy! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Count (if you dare)

Omg!!! I don't even wanna know those numbers like EVER!  I know I spent $1600 between January and March.  Haha, nervous laughing, I should insure my makeup.

Re: Count (if you dare)

LOL I know right? My house was burglarized not too long ago and the first thing I checked on was my makeup. Thankfully it was all there!!

Re: Count (if you dare)

Omg!  that's so scary!!!   Glad you and your makeup are fine thoughSmiley Wink 

Re: Count (if you dare)

Omg! I can't wait till I have a real job so I can do all the shopping my heart desires hahaa Smiley Tongue My sister likes to joke that I will have an awesome closet and makeup collection but an empty bank account when I'm older Smiley Very Happy Unfortunately, that might be true LOL 

Re: Count (if you dare)

Hahahaha the problem is I don't have a real job! I'm a college student and I make $10 an hour at a bakery, I just spend all my leftover money on makeup... Lol

Re: Count (if you dare)

At least you have a job! I'm only 17 with no work experience and that makes it impossible to get a job these days. Smiley Sad

Re: Count (if you dare)

So sorry andy!! That must be really hard and you know what's silly? How are you supposed to gain work experience if you need work experience for a job? I'm only 15 so I don't have one either, but I think it would be hard for me with school anyway

Anyway, I don't have permission to work Smiley Wink

Re: Count (if you dare)

The American job and education systems are a joke

Re: Count (if you dare)

Ha, the Canadian systems aren't any better in those areas. 

Re: Count (if you dare)

Yes definitely, all of the jobs I have I got trough friends or family

Re: Count (if you dare)

Yum! I've been spending my time watching Cake Boss lol Smiley Tongue And I think that's an EXCELLENT way to spend your $$ Smiley Very Happy 

Re: Count (if you dare)

awww @ the high schoolers!! I remember having the same frustrations about finding work. No one in retail would ever hire me, which is one of the few places high schoolers can actually apply. It drove me crazy, but eventually I found work in areas that were closer to my actual interests...got a job as a grader in a tutoring center (a desk job, woohoo!) and then a receptionist at a fitness center. (free gym membership, woohoo!) So if you do have any hobbies/interests and there are relevant places to apply to, try there. Sometimes enthusiasm for a particular line of work makes up for experience!! And on that note, I suggest applying to Sephora when you're of age. Smiley Wink

Re: Count (if you dare)

That would be like a down payment for a car.....

TM- 2 deluxe minis

powders- 1 setting powder

Primers- 1 travel size, 3 deluxe minis

Blush- 1 mini, 2 in a pallete

Bronzer- 1 mini, 1 in a pallete

Lipstick/lipgloss/liners- 5 full size, 5 minis

Single eyeshadows- 6

eyeshadow pallete-2 small ones (the Dior ones with 5 colors)

eyeliner-8, and some missing smaller ones.

Mascara-4

eyebrow products-2

Multi-use palettes- 1 that I tore apart and 1 that is still in one piece.

 

Skincare and haircare is a different story though................

Highlighted

Re: Count (if you dare)

Only doing the ones I know off the top of my head.

 

Mascaras 40 (35 of which are sample size)

Blush 31 (more if you consider some are in palettes and include tints, will be 32 tomorrow)

Powders 8 (stays at 8 if I am only counting full face powders.  would need to count and considerably add if this includes highlighters, meteorites and bronzers)

Foundations 5 (if I am only counting full size liquids)

 

No clue on the rest.
