Okay Addicts, you have been given $100 cash to spend* - what do you buy? If you can't spend the full $100, you have to surrender the change. Anything you spend over $100 has to come from your own pocket. You have access to MAC, Farmers, Ballantynes and Mecca.

*asking because in a couple of weeks, work will give me $100 and I'll have to spend it and I'm at a loss as I'm kind of working on panning what I have and selling what I'm not using.

I'd definitely go to Mecca and pick up one of their lovely xmas gift packs. An Hourglass palette is nice for a special treat if you haven't got one already. I bought myself one for my birthday thinking I wouldn't really use it much but have ended up using it every day.

$100 and on beauty?

I'd head straight to Mecca and buy something I'd been eying up but holding off purchasing, then top it up with Soap and Glory etc.

High on the list are.....

Too Faced Glitter Bomb

UD Vice 4 or Moondust

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Pink Quartz

Glowstarter

Or if it's Mac I'm eyeing up three lipstick shades so might get all three!!  Rebel, Candy yum yum and Russian Red

I could take the $100 and spend it on something that I actually need, like new pants or shoes, but its been months since I last got any new makeup, and by months, I mean two lipsticks in June from Ballantynes. Or maybe the Laura Mercier powder from Nordstrom in July. Either way, its been a while... but fragrance is sounding like a go! Also, when did Farmers start selling Elizabeth & James!?

Every year I see farmers come out with their perfume sample box thing but every year I manage to talk me out of buying it. If I had $100 I'd get that (and the free perfume it comes with) and then get like a cheap thing just to get it as close to $100 as I can.

Haha yes it would take me a few thousand to buy all things that appeal to me as well. I'd probably buy a palette or foundation I haven't been able to justify yet then use any left over on things from a brand like essence.

I would probably spend it at lush or on some gorgeous hair care. Happy spending :-)

I would totally go to Lush and buy their new solid lotions and massage bars - if you are a lover of Snow Fairy you need the Snow Fairy massage bar in your life omg. Use this nearly every day and smells amazing.

Or maybe buy a high end product you wouldn't usually be able to afford - or a new perfume. I would purchase the Viva La Juicy perfume 

Let us know what you end up getting x

  I'd probably get something that was long lasting and either limited edition or a really good deal and that I wouldn't buy normally. Like a face palette or a perfume or a giftset with makeup minis so I could have a bunch of different things to try. Or a really nice set of makeup brushes that will last me for years.
