This or That

The Winey Mommy

I don't usually post more than once a day, but I had to show some love to my girl Chelle at The Winey Mommy, who just started doing a This or That? meme. I absolutely love Chelle and she spells her name the way the Hubs spells mine.

The question for the week is:

Do you buy your makeup at a discount/drugstore or some type of specialty makeup store?

Makeup? What's that? Oh, yeah, the stuff I use to help me not look like a sleep-deprived zombie mom.


Me, cheap-o ME, yes, I actually usually buy it from a specialty store.

Usually Sephora or Ulta.

Used to be Sephora, but not Ulta is the store that is closest to me, so I go to that one.

About once or twice a year, I walk in, find an employee whose makeup I like, grab her arm, and ask her to HELP ME.

I've had great luck with them listening to what I want and making suggestions that fit my budget, as well as having them show me how to apply it all.

I ususally ask for a gift card to one of those places for Christmas and my birthday(in July), so I'm usually set.

Though, I do love Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara.

So, that's my This or That.

Easy! :)

Thanks for playing!!

And seriously--could we be any more alike?!?! I used to be a Sephora girl. But we don't have one, so Ulta is a fab substitute.

And I know what you mean about having the one help you that you LOVE their makeup. Sorry, but I don't want some clown face helping me out, haha!

I have used all name brands at one time or another. Right now, I am loving Philosophy's Supernatural makeup. I just got mineral make-up from them on Saturday.

I need major help when it comes to picking out foundation. I never get a shade that looks decent. I started using Almay smart shade, and it doesn't look to bad on me.

I've used almost everything, MAC, Clinique, Estee Lauder, and Wal-Mart stuff.

The one thing I never change is my Maybelline Mascara the Volumonous one. Makes my eyelashes BIG!! I love it!!

I've paid a lot for department stores mascara, but none compare to Maybelline.

I sux at make-up (purchasing and applying). For that reason I try to stay away from buying.

I'm the same way. I usually only go once or twice a year, and I tend to use a gift card! I love Sephora... Especially their eyeshadow primer! It's the best I've found! I'm looking for a good mascara, so I might have to try the Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara.

uh....you mean that we aren't SUPPOSED to buy our make-up at the dollar store? Hmm. That is interesting. I always wondered what those bright shiny aisles at target were for.

I am usually a cheapo but with my make up I use clinique due to allergies. I do use the cover girl lash blast, seriously the best mascara ever!

I buy really cheap stuff too, but I LOVE Cover Girl. I do used TOO FACED lip plumper and lash injection though. SOrry I have not been commenting much. I am just getting back on my feet after getting a new computer!

I'm usually a cheapo too, but I do splurge a little more on my make-up. I used to use Clinique and now I use Mary Kay, though my rep just moved. :-(

I love Sephora. It is so much fun. I haven't heard of Ulta before. Is it pretty much the same?

I have been in Ulta once, which is amazing since I really really REALLY love makeup. And I also really really REALLY love Lash Blast!

I love Sephora. I never buy things at WalMart, Target, etc. Good idea asking them what they use if you like how they look!

so smart to find a "face" you like in the store and use her as a buying guide. Brilliant!
