Hey everyone and happy Thursday! Well actually not too happy for me coz I'm working from home as I've been struck with one of my on and off splitting headaches :( I've been trying to nap but the headache won't let me.

Anyway, I thought of today's poll as I was applying my Chanel Rouge Coco yesterday. I thought of a time when $10 was the max I would spend on a lipstick (in high school). But now it seems like I don't think twice about dropping $38CAD on a Chanel lippie. Over time I've come to realize that most of the time you do get what you pay for though there are always more expensive products that don't live up to expectations. It's been years since I bought a lipstick from DS but I can tell the difference between my MAC, Nars, YSL and Chanel lipsticks by how they apply and how long they last. So I would say if I like the colour, formula and feel of a lip product, I'll pay the big bucks to get it. If the lipsticks is of great quality and price, that's a bonus for me!

What is the maximum amount you'd spend on a lipstick? Please feel free to elaborate in comments

    I'm not sure. I don't think I'm always that conscious about what I spend on a product. I'm a terrible impulse buying. I don't think I've ever bought a really expensive lipstick (like Chanel). I do own a couple of Guerlain lipglosses though.

    Pixie - i'm pretty impulsive too :( I buy anything I like despite the price tag. Chanel and YSL lip products are great though. You should give them a try

    Chanel & YSL are as high as I've gone. I always feel buyers' remorse at first but you know what I love those lippies so much. I have been wearing Chanel Mademoiselle every day since I got it and LOVE it.

    I think it really depends; if there happened to be an incredibly amazing shade that was $30, then I would probably pay. But, on average I honestly like MAC's $14 pricetag. It helps that I love their colors :) But yea, I remember the days when I balked at the prices of MAC and felt so horrible spending like $60 on a haul or something, and now I am lucky to get out of a collection at under $100. Sigh...

    Michelle - Chanel and YSL are my HE l/s too but I love them despite the price. I also feel a tiny bit of remorse after but get over soon coz I love the colours and textures of these lipsticks.

    Abby - I know my go to for lipstick is still MAC. They do make amazing lip products. I do like to splurge in pricier stuff every once in a while though

    Not really sure...all depends on how much I like the color/texture when I try it out!

  7. Shadowy Lady Says:

    Shayla - I'm like that too, If I like it I buy it! Don't care too much about the price :/
