well, it's all up to individuals to decide how they should spend their money and what is worth for them to buy.
why should someone that's totally unrelated to all these cosmetics lovers interfer how they should spend their money and start questioning what occupations they having??
are they jealous that they dun have that kind of money to buy cosmetics??

I do have a huge collection, that I have accumulated over years....beaniewienie8/8/2007 9:04AM

I would be a little hurt if you asked me to post my collection...beaniewienie8/8/2007 9:16AM

I have a huge collection but it has taken years and I also have a compulsive spending problem.mpapa8/8/2007 9:03AM

Well, mu is an interest like anything else... Some ppl like to spend $ on it, never mind their jobsrocketqueen8/8/2007 8:59AM

I don't agree on the view that some people have, that it would be more disgraceful to spend >rocketqueen8/8/2007 9:05AM

ITA. People are quick to assume that spending on m/u means you have a spending problem :(supko8/8/2007 9:11AM

Occasionally I wonder but really... I just enjoy the pics. These are the same ppl we turn to when ++supko8/8/2007 8:58AM

I guess I see it this way: You could have a million dollar mu collection but live in a sh*t housevoravons8/8/2007 8:58AM

2nd..I know people that rather have a nice LV purse and a crappy car.. Thats nutz to meDiTZYCubanItA8248/8/2007 9:00AM

But if they're happy, what's the problem? If someone sets mu as a first priority, what's the strangerocketqueen8/8/2007 9:00AM

For this example that Voravons gave, it's a problem ++joeybunny8/8/2007 9:03AM

Yes, to YOU it is - but your views are not the standard, so why bother? Each to his own...rocketqueen8/8/2007 9:06AM

A house really isn't fundamental to some people, that's the thing. But I agree; if someone's happyrocketqueen8/8/2007 9:22AM

I wasn't being judgemental, I love everyone's MU collections ++joeybunny8/8/2007 9:15AM

You didn't insult me at all, I just have a view of life that says that >rocketqueen8/8/2007 9:12AM

And neither are your views, or anyone else's here - I was just trying to defend my POV =( ++joeybunny8/8/2007 9:10AM

I guess my use of "home" was taken too literally, I just meant ppl have diff. priorities w/ their $$voravons8/8/2007 9:06AM

no I understood what you meantjoeybunny8/8/2007 9:08AM

I disagree. As long as the crap home is in a decent neighborhood so your MU won't get stolen. :-)ebwolk8/8/2007 9:05AM

LMAO! ok, I can't argue with that! joeybunny8/8/2007 9:05AM

yes, as long as a person can afford it, what's the BFD? supko8/8/2007 9:03AM

i agreevoravons8/8/2007 9:01AM

I mean that some ppl like h/e mu, but buy clothes at Target. They spend here, scrimp there. voravons8/8/2007 9:00AM

what gets me more is the coveting, the way ppl act proud of it in their pics ropoldieslvr188/8/2007 9:01AM

But why not act proud? This board is abt makeup, is it not? It's not about guilt or shame.supko8/8/2007 9:02AM

sad thing is I wear cosmetics maybe once a month.phillygirl8/8/2007 8:58AM
