It definitely accumulates! Setting aside the fact OP may be a makeup artists ($700 is bare minimum for a makeup artists box though) Eye shadow Palettes range from $20-200 depending on brand. High quality lipsticks range $20-60, Foundations $20-80. We have multiples of foundations for different seasons, Palettes for different colours, Primers, Blushes, Highlighters, Contours, Mascara, and every variety of that kind. So many colours and that doesn't even touch on the Brushes for them all! Higher quality makeup lasts longer and works better. Same reason why you buy higher quality clothes over Walmart brand. If someone lost $700 in clothes, that could range from 20 outfits(cheapo) to 4 outfits (expensive).
I sympathize and yet I don’t. I have a toddler so I know about this particular force of nature. I also know that when she gets into things, its usually my fault for not locking it up or laying down the law.
100% Agree. I have two boys, and all it took was them being able to stand and reach the edge of the counter to know to lock everything away. They are curious, they want everything mommy and daddy uses. Those fancy brushes and boxes holding powders and creams? It's like a magnet for them. I feel bad for OP. That's a lot of makeup gone, and I'm sure a lot of palettes!
YDI for having $700 worth of makeup. That's more than a monthly house payment for some people.
Good makeup costs money, don't slam on people for choosing what they want to spend money on. It's not $700 a month. An eye shadow palette lasts years, You buy in what new colours or brands you like. Lipsticks, Mascara, Primer, Foundation, Everything adds up. I could say the same for people who buy a Video game monthly. $60 a month for a year is $720.
