I ask, you answer: What's your achilles heel?

Taking the cue from Eli, who started the Q&A with our readers, I thought I'd give it a go too.

The question this week is rather simple: What's your achilles heel when it comes to shopping? Give me your answers for two categories - beauty and non-beauty.


For example, for yours truly here, my current shopping weak-spot in the beauty category is eyeshadow. Neutral eyeshadows, in particular. Over the last few months (stretching all the way back last year), I've hoarded quite a bit, including eyeshadows from Inglot (a 10-piece palette), Burberry, Giorgio Armani, Make Up For Ever, Sleek MakeUP, L'Oreal, and most recently, the Naked 2 palette.

In the non-beauty category, apart from books, I'm a sucker for camera related stuff. My most recent purchase was a 15-85mm Canon lens, which granted, I've been eyeing and lemming for over a year. And now it's miiiine. *le sigh*


Spill the beans, lovelies. What's yours?

Beauty weak spot: powder foundation! I guess I'm so into powder foundation lately that I just want MORE MORE and more! :P

Non-Beauty weak spot: Cute hair clips and ribbons! Ahhh just by looking at them melts my heart :P

Thanks for your comments, ladies!

Bee: Haha... No, blushes are a permanent fetish. Eyeshadows are my current fetish. LOL.

No weak spots but I do have lemmings for the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum, Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage and Becca Lip and Cheek Tint. The latter is to die for gorgeous.

Eli: I've been hearing everyone talk about LM's Secret Camouflage, but so far I'm still really happy with my cheapo ZA concealer. Hvn't itched enough to try the LM one yet. I've got the Healthy Mix Foundation (not the serum one), but I can't decide yet whether it's breaking me out or whether something else is breaking me out. It would seem like my skin doesn't like foundation very much. Sheez.

I have LM Secret Camo and I have to admit I have REAL problems getting it to work for me...

Will try and write a review but you now how hard it is to cover these things.

Blushes. No doubt about that. And very pretty makeup palettes that I end up not using :P

Non-beauty would be books. My craze these days are fashion-related coffee table books.

Syen said...

Kahani: Yeah.. I think it'd be an interesting piece, as it's definitely a different experience. So far I've only heard good stuff about the Secret Camo.

Tine: Yay for blush! =)
