Bionic Asks: What’s your spending limit?

Bionic Asks - Makeup and beauty question serie

This week’s Bionic Asks… What’s your spending limit on beauty related items?

Whether it’s services (hair color, manicures and the like), skin care (lotions n’ potions), or colorful makeup– the majority of us have a limit we won’t go over.

I don’t get manicures, pedis, waxing, hair color or other salon services. But I do enjoy splurging a tad on my hair care (shampoos and such). Still, I think I’m quite thrifty and could never see myself spending the high bucks for a jar of La Mer face cream.

$50? $100? Where’s your line-in-the-sand on a per item price?

I know EXACTLY what my spending limit is on any and all beauty services – $72. That’s how much my haircut and partial foil cost at my hair stylist’s. And since the economy went to pot, I’ve cut out pedicures – my feet look grotesque, but oh the money I’m saving!

I’m on my own with no help from anyone so I have to be thrifty! My haircuts are $15 and I do my own color. I buy most of my makeup at Wal-Mart or CVS but I do splurge on good perfume. My limit is $65.

I have only splurged once or twice on professional hair color, and I have to say it’s way too much work! In general, my limit is $100 total – and I better be getting several products! The most I’ll spend on one item is maybe $35.

It completely depend’s on what I’m buying. My hair long, thick, blonde, dry climate with harsh weather, I will spend what I must to keep it healthy….Profound Beauty, Kim Vo, Hamadi….

I don’t do any coloring, it’s about $150+ to get highlight’s….I wouldn dare by myself with high ph well water.

Massage? Get a Physical Therapy script from your DR.!!! Yeah, just got a free massage every week!!!!

Lipstick-I confess, If I find the perfect one, I will spend it. I also am careful how I buy expensive item’s, usually big dept. stores with toss in nice samples if it’s a mail it to Me please order!

If it truly work’s, I will spend it. I also will not shop where there isn’t a guarantee and no hassle retun’s, thank you Sephora.
