How Often Do You Buy New Makeup Products?

usually when i run out, but i try to throw anything away that's been sitting around for 1 yr - even eye shadows! so i've been trying to buy cheaper stuff that i won't feel as bad when i throw it out and avoid make-up counters!
I buy it quite a lot, I'm bad for make-up, I could never go out of the house without some slap on my face!
I love skincare and makeup. Big weakness of mine. I try not to buy stuff when I don't need it (because honestly, I DON'T need it), but those 'limited edition' Stila/Nars/etc kits at Sephora and new much-hyped products (the new Chanel mascara, the YSL foundation...) get me every time.
All the fucking time! It's an obsession. And a really shallow one at that.
I love lip gloss! But makeup altoguether its my fave!
I always buy stuff becuase I think I might eventually stumble across the next great wonderful find...but in reality, I buy stuff, use it once or twice, realize it doesnt work, then I keep it in my beauty closet full of products just like it!
don't worry Lisa, I do that too when i see old polls, blogs, etc.
I started reading the comments and was freaked out when I saw Cali. WTF? Then I saw this was an old poll that just keeps getting resurrected. I am a make up-holic. Hi my name is Lisa and I can't control my addiction!!
Maybe 3 or 4 times a month. Some days me and my friends will just take a day to go perfume or make up shopping, and then sometimes between/before classes I get bored so I go to the mall.
I just buy whenever I run out.
I buy every season cause I like to try new eye colors, but the rest of my make up I change between Dior and Chanel. They tend to last for a while. I buy as needed!
Umm...I pretty much buy products every two weeks (yes, that coincides with getting paid). I'm more of a skincare than makeup junkie. With the exceptions of Walgreens, I only buy online.
everytime mac sends me those emails for their new line or free shipping, i feel the need to buy something. i should probably get taken off that mailing list, save myself some money
I selected other because I purchase new make up less than once a week but more than once a month. I purchase most of my make-up at the drug store. I am more adventurous with mascara and lipstick/lip gloss, I pretty much use the same foundation, powder, moisturizer, blush, eyeshadow and eyeliner. I go to Sephora about twice a year and really treat myself, maybe some Smashbox lip glosses and Benefit mascara, maybe some Dior eyeshadow. I'll spend about two hours in there just trying things. Make-up shopping is very therapeutic for me, like the gym, it's my time to myself and I just zone out.
Mmmm the liquid liner sounds lush! I can never decide what shade to buy either.. :D
Fiona - I LOVE Juicy Tubes too! I just ordered Lancome's Blueberry Liquid Liner yesterday - can't wait until it gets here! I was so torn on deciding what sample to get with my order - one of the new Juicy Tubes Smoothies or a Rouge Sensation. But the Rouge Sensation was a berry color, and I really want one of those for Fall. Sigh...tough choices!
Sidewalk sales and end-of-season clearances are lethal for me. You Yanks have Bath & Body Works, and we Canucks have The Body Shop. Their after-Christmas clearance rocks. I get all these lotions and bubble bath and cologne and I have just about every home fragrance oil they've ever made. And when there are sidewalk sales Shopper's Drug Mart puts out discontinued make up and nail polish for practically nothing. I haunt discount/clearance bins. Check out your department stores the next time you go...many, many places have those bins. You can get awesome stuff for peanuts! And you Yanks are killing me with your Big Lots and Dollar Tree stores. Whenever I go across the border I load up. I had two bags full of Revlon, Maybelline, Loreal and Sally Hansen stuff that all together came to under $20.
Oh and my biggest addiction is for lancome juicy tubes!
Iam obsessed with products too.. have been since I was a young girl. By age 12 I had two drawers full of cosmetics. My Mum says I was the only 10 year old with perfectly applied make up... she still made me wash it off though LOL.
for lip gloss...constantly. i dont wear makeup hardly...yet. so not often at all. i love lipgloss and that is my weakness!
Way more often when I actually lived within the electromagnetic pull range of a Sephora store. Now, every few months since I order almost everything online.
i just basically buy clear polish and lip gloss, i buy it whenever i am around it. i don't wear actual makeup, like blush and all that, maybe some lash extender every now and then.
When I'm out of something, usually. Or if I see something I have to have at MAC or Sephora.
