I had decided to treat myself, and treat myself I did. However not quite how I had first planned.
You see I've had a rotten time of late so I thought some retail therapy in the form of some fancy make up was in order. I ended up getting a couple of illamasqua products and the Benefit Powderflage that I've previously blogged about. This wasn't my first choice however. No doubt like many of you out there I have been longing to get my hands on some Beaute products. Namely Masochist and Flouron. I heart them so much. Two gorgeous products that NEED to be in my make up bag.
I was on the website all prepared to purchase but I just couldn't do it. Why? Quite simply, the price. I just couldn't bring myself to spend £47 on two lip products. I know this may seem silly considering I paid £15 for an Illamasqua lipstick but still, that's seven pound difference. I would however spend £25 (the cost of Flouron) on a eyeshadow palette, so really what is the difference.
So my question to you dear folks is 'What is your limit'? At what price do you draw the line? I seem to have met mine.
Now these little stunners will still stay on my wish list as they will go on my 'birthday present suggestion guide' (tee hee) so I may still get my hands on them. When it comes to gifts I tend to ask for things that I wouldn't treat myself too. As a gift I would love it as it not a practical boring thing it's a 'spoiling you treat' which a gift should be in my eyes. Not necessarily what you need but what you WANT. The 'sensible' stuff I can save up for an buy myself.
Hope your week has started well.
Take care folks
