I think i do have a bit of an addiction mainly to buying it, but also to wearing make up. I wear it every day in the week for work, and msot weekends depending on whether i go out or not. I just lvoe to buy new make up, i love finding new brands and discovering new types of make up and different colours! So would you say you were addicted to it?

I used to be like that. I used to have addiction on buying makeup. I wear makeup almost everyday too (to work and whenever I go out). I used to think makeup items were not enough, I kept on reading magazines to see the new releases, buying new colors, trying new brands...etc. until one day when I cleaned out my drawers, there were too many makeup items un-used and untouched. I thought to myself "what a waste". Now I just don't let myself buy that many because it's really hard to "use up" a makeup item, therefore, I would think about what I need instead of what I want before buying.

hmmmmm...buying so much and so many without even using them, that's something. perhaps you will have to give them away or try to sell them to friends. most probably, you can sell some to those who are working in offices. they need make up items so much.

Certainly, I don't have any addiction when it comes to buying or wearing make-ups. However, I do put on some light make-up whenever I'm going out somewhere like if there's a special occasion or events.

I love my make-up, and I'm not ashamed to say I spend an awful lot of money on it. I have a huge hoard from when I worked at boots that will take me years to use up. I wear make-up every day, even if I'm only nipping down the road to the shop. I don't have good enough self-confidence to not wear it. I am ADDICTED.

When I was working I wouldn't go out of the house without putting my face on ... if I had a really nice eye shadow or foundation I'd hate it when it ran out .. you never seem to be able to get such a nice one again .. Then I had to have an operation on my right hand .. and was in a massive 'joke' sized bandage for 2 weeks .. and unable to use it properly for another 5-6 weeks ... so I couldn't put make up on .. at first I felt 'naked' going on without putting my 'slap' on .. but after a few weeks my skin was so much better .. I looked healthier .. and I;ve never really bothered to use any since then .. and that's 17 years ago ...

Umm...YES I do!LOL! I love experimenting with new products and colors and I find it to be my "fun" time! I especially love eye makeup and blush. Oh, and eyebrow products...and lipgloss...I guess that's about everything!LOL! I like my face to look polished because I do live in scrubs and they are not all that flattering, so I like to make sure my face is always very clean and neat. I mostly wear light colors and keep things natural, but one would be surprised how many shades of natural colors there are!LOL! I also love blush because I feel that it livens up my face and gives me a glow:)

No - to be honest, I am not at all. I have to wear make-up all day at work, because I meet the public, and I'm kind of expected to adhere to certain standards of dress and appearance, but, to be honest, I don't like wearing it all the time, so I can't wait for a weekend when I can let me skin "breathe" and not wear any. I gues I will still put on a little lipstick and eye stuff if I go out for dinner on a Saturday night or whatever, but I am certainly not addicted to wearing it all the time.

it so happens that i do not like to wear makeup. i am happy that i was never fond of it. i know how expensive these items are nowadays. if i am into the habit of buying makeup, i am sure that the items i would need will eat up a sizeable amount of my budget.

not for me lol..i love to look at make ups, and would love to buy them but i have more than enough make ups at home that i don't wear T_T ..when i started working, i used to wear make up but gradually i stopped. because i'm always in a hurry when going out and i don't have time to doll myself up. i have to have powder and lipstick on though. so basically i only wear make up whenever there's an important function hehe though i wish this is not the case hehe..

Here I thought I was alone in my addiction! LOL I do have a passion for buying new makeup. I love to try new things and look different then the day before! I don't wear it that often anymore (I am a stay at home mom so it is pointless for me to wear it at home).

I don't believe in wearing makeup. I never believed in wearing makeup, and I never understood why my mother would put on makeup before going out in the evenings. There is nothing on my face that I wish to change or accent. I am happy the way I am, and I ddon't want to change anthing.
