Good morning everyone and happy Thursday! I'm excited about this weekend and the big Persian New Year party at my parents. I'm obviousely also excited about planing my makeup but haven't decided on it yet.

Since MAC's Art collection will be released next Thursday, I started compiling my "reasonable" wishlist so I don't go over budget. I always go to makeup counter/stores with a wishlist in hand. If I end up buying something that was not on myh wishlist or the trip to the beauty counter is random, I restrict myself with the next purchase. As of now I have a $50 gift card to MAC which I'm planing on using on Art collection (prob get 2 GPS and 1 pearlglide liner). Since technically I won't be spending much money I also want to get a Nars duo (Star Sailor, thanks to Michelle). I must admit there are times when I go completely over budget and become unreasonable but luckily that is not often.

How about you guys? Do you always plan ahead and have a fixed buget in mind or do you just throw your list out the windo the moment you enter MAC, Sephora or other beauty stores?

    I'm always on a budget and even though it hurts sometimes I sick to that lol :-)

    Yes the list gets thrown out the window! It's horrible. But lately I'm limiting myself to 2-3 items per collection so I can enjoy my things more and not stretch myself thin. So hopefully that will help me.
