QOTW: Do You Buy Backups Of Beauty Products?

Do you buy backups of beauty products?

Beautiful with brains says: nope. I have so much makeup that I rarely finish something, so there’s no point in me getting a backup that I’ll probably never get to use.

    The first backup I bought was quite recently – a lip balm. I don’t feel the need to back up, because I’m constantly searching, and I get tired of a product quite quickly… But who knows, this lip balm might be the first in a long row in my drawer 😀

      Vonnie, oh yes, I may buy a backup of foudation too, especially if it was a perfect match that’s being discounted. As for other makeup products, I find it really hard to finish them.

    Only chapstick and lotion. We buy LOTs of that. But for makeup, I don’t need backups. Things seem to last for ever! And if it is something that I will go through, like foundation, I would rather go purchase a new bottle, instead of using an old one that I kept around forever.

      Eleanor, makeup products seem to last forever indeed. I guess if I found the perfect foundation shade and it were then discounted, I would buy a backup or two but not more because I wouldn’t wanna use something too old either.

      Ana, it can be really tempting to buy backups sometimes, especially of items that are LE, isn’t it? It just takes forever to finish them though. :)

    ehhhm, yes, sometimes i actually do buy back usp! but only if i really really really LOVE the product and feel at first sight the great anxiety i would have if this product wasn’t no more!

      Eyegraffiti, it’s not lame! Some products are really tempting, especially when they are limited edition, that getting a backup can be a good idea. Particularly if you know you are going to use them often. :)

      Kuri, I like trying new things all the time. But there are some products we just can’t live without, right?: :)

    Rarely – just occasionally when I KNOW something is ‘just right’ (like my MAC Gem of Roses). I’m very fickle, and always see things I like – I don’t think that there is much that can’t be replicated fairly well. And it’s good to try something new!

      Viv, I agree that most things are easily dupable and it’s so much fun to try something new all the time anyway!
