  • I used to but then I had kids and realized make up is not worth so much money to me anymore.

  • Some of it is expensive, I can't afford to shop expensive make up that much.

  • I buy Bare Minerals only. I don't want to smear my face in chemicals that cause cancer.

  • I guess it's kind of expensive. But, like SweetLoveofMine suggests: you have to be careful about what you put on your skin - it gets absorbed into your system. Just like Rx patches dispense their drugs into your system, all those chemicals in your makeup, skin creams & lotions, soaps, sunscreens, etc., get in there too. I pay a little more for stuff with less chemicals, but I still use my hair color - I guess there is still a part of me that would rather go sooner 'cute' than later not-so-cute. LOL

  • I buy based on ingredients and desired results vs. cost, some is more expensive than others.

  • I will only wear Clinique. I have tried to use the less inexpensive brands, and nothing works as well. Not just the colr matches but the consistancy, formulas. Etc.
