what makeup would you buy with $1000


Re: what makeup would you buy with $1000

Re: what makeup would you buy with $1000

@itsfi Haha, you would get a luminous silk mini with all that money?

Re: what makeup would you buy with $1000

Hahahaha @sprocketta! 😂😂 I had the FS picked out first then thought that it would take me forever to finish; and with a mini, I could get enough other products for a full face. I mean, I could if I had $1000 to spend at Sephora. 😉😆

Re: what makeup would you buy with $1000

Lol @itsfi I never finish full size makeup anything. Just skincare.

Re: what makeup would you buy with $1000

I get that @sprocketta! Completely get that! 

Re: what makeup would you buy with $1000

@MakeupGirlIzzy  Are you asking a general question or are you wanting to get ideas to use a gift card for yourself?


if the latter what do you already have?

there are a ton of great things listed below


or are you thinking of gifts fior others? 
I have so much already that this time of year  I would be thinking of using it for gifts for others and then I would buy cute fun holiday sets that have a broad range for face, eyes, lips and then I would buy brush sets on the sale page to go with them 

And I would wait for the Holiday sale discount code to come out in the next few weeks I think end of October to beginning of November to maximize my $1000 (to get a code must be a beauty insider)

Re: what makeup would you buy with $1000

@MakeupGirlIzzy If it has to be only stuff Sephora sells, that narrows my list quite a bit. 
2 NARS Blush Orgasm shades: $60 

This list doesn’t account for the ridiculously high sales tax in my city (10.25%) 🤣 but who wants to set aside $102.50 for taxes while dreaming up a list like this? 

Re: what makeup would you buy with $1000

@MakeupGirlIzzy I would get the holiday collections from Charlotte Tilbury, Pat McGrath and Natasha Denona. 

Re: what makeup would you buy with $1000

@MakeupGirlIzzy  I would probably pick up the PMG holiday quads and the Midnight Sun palette, and a few items from the Tom Ford Winter collection. I'd probably pick up some of the CT holiday items too. 

what makeup would you buy with $1000

Too faced' Peach line, Urban Decay liners in every shade and every pallet!! and then would splurge from there.

Re: what makeup would you buy with $1000

@MakeupGirlIzzy Wow - that really makes me think.  I guess I'd pick things that I've been dragging my feet on, like:

Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Oil 1 oz/ 30 mL

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Eyeshadow Palette Exaggereyes

Kérastase Discipline Smoothing Mask 6.8 oz/ 200 mL

Natasha Denona Camel Eyeshadow Palette Camel

OLAPLEX - Holiday Hair Fix Set

The Ordinary "Buffet" 1 oz/ 30 mL


And a bunch of lippies (I've been trying to stay away from them, so I don't have any in mind), more Sephora brand brushes (you can never have too many), some YSL and Lancome 5-pan palettes.  Oh, and a Slip Silk Pillowcase - Standard/Queen Pink

RE: Re: what makeup would you buy with $1000

It can be anything you can buy at Sephora

Re: what makeup would you buy with $1000

@MakeupGirlIzzy like new stuff or including the stuff I would re-purchase 😊


But as of right now, the things highest on my wishlist are 

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Face Palette – Ghost

Aether Beauty Amethyst Crystal Gemstone Eyeshadow Palette or Aether Beauty Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Eyeshadow Palette (though if I'm honest the Rose Quartz looks like a lot of stuff I already own)

PAT McGRATH LABS Blitz Astral Quad Eyeshadow Palette Iconic Illumination

 but in the pink shade that's exclusive to her site


I just recently got COVER FX - Monochromatic Matte + Shimmer Blush Duo - Pink Dahlia ,PAT McGRATH LABS Mothership VI Eyeshadow Palette - Midnight Sun,  and PAT McGRATH LABS Mothership I Eyeshadow Palette - Subliminal and I've been using all of them pretty much daily- I love them! I really think that PAT McGRATH LABS Mini Eye Ecstasy: Eyeshadow Palette Sublime in the less colorful set is the perfect accompaniment to the newest mothership if you dig that color scheme.


Otherwise... I'm pretty set for makeup. There's always new, pretty stuff coming out but I always try to consider what I already have before buying more so while there are some other brands I'd love to try, a lot of what I'm most interested in is pretty similar to what I already have so I'm waiting to use up more of my current stash

Re: what makeup would you buy with $1000

@MakeupGirlIzzy  what a fun question!

PAT McGRATH LABS Mothership VI Eyeshadow Palette - Midnight Sun out of the 10 pan palettes, this is the most daily friendly to wear but I can also make it pop for nights out. 

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Longwear Foundation 7.5 Neutral - this is one of the best foundations I've tried this year.

Natasha Denona Metropolis Eyeshadow Palette 28 x 0.048 oz - lots of neutrals to work with for daily looks and special occasion

PAT MCGRATH LABS - Blitz Astral Quad Eyeshadow Palette - Nocturnal Nirvana & Iconic Illumination 

PAT MCGRATH LABS - MatteTrance™ Lipstick - Christy

PAT McGRATH LABS MatteTrance™ Lipstick McMenamy 200

PAT McGRATH LABS MatteTrance™ Lipstick Peep Show all of these mattes are the most comfortable formulas and last almost all day

Viseart Grande Pro Volume I Eyeshadow Palette 30 x eyeshadows

Viseart Grande Pro Volume 2 Eyeshadow Palette- both of these viseart palettes have an expiration date of 3 years--its such a good buy and great quality

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer Madeleine- my all time favorite

DIOR - BACKSTAGE Lip Palette - great for traveling

Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner Blacquer 42 - nice basic black eyeliner

tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes™ 4-in-1 Mascara Black - my favorite mascara

...And that my friend is exactly $1k when I added it
