Why do women pay thousands of dollars on lip injections,booty and hip implants and tans?

Why do that when some people think that when you see the same thing (natural born)on an ethnic person and they feel it is disgusting! You were not born like that! Why change your body to be more curvy and be darker with fuller lips when you think it looks nasty on someone else? I'm just sayin!!

  • I think the better question is HOW does someone spend all that money on stuff like that, LOL..I would like a nice tan,a booty lift,a boob lift,maybe a little fuller lips would be just cause I would like to look good..same reason I put on makeup, only difference is, it costs a whole lot less! lol

  • I don't get it either. I can understand a few procedures, like breast augmentation after breast feeding to rebuild your chest to what it USED to be. I can even understand a tummy tuck after having kids, but the rest... UGH. Use what you have and be who you are.

  • I don't know, I guess for the same reason some "ethnic" woman dye their hair blonde, get blonde weave, wear blue contacts and get lipo in their butts?

  • I go with the mindset that it's their money, let them do what they want.

    i personally spend my money on hair care...cuts, colors, etc. I also get my brows dyed and waxed every once in a while. Point is, we all choose to spend our money differently, who are we to judge how another person spends theirs, just because we don't see the rationale in it?

  • I could understand using makeup as an enhacement to your " Natural" beauty, but why alter your body to look more curvy when there are women dying to be stick thin because being naturally curvy or Janice the puppet after all this body altering procedures. They look like clowns!!

  • Insecurity and a strong belief that if only they looked 'right' then they'd become acceptable, lovable and feel inner peace.

    Since it doesn't work, they often get more and more and more --because doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results is super-popular.
