Have you tried Marc Jacobs Genius Gel or YSL Touche Eclat foundation? Both are my new holy grail knocked my MUFE HD on it's ass.



Word?  i've been looking for a new foundation.  My MUFE has been sliding off my face lately.  I might have to roll thru sephora see if I can get a sample or summin'.




as far as the topic.  I feel alot of people touched on valid reasons.  I do feel that this ....is emotionally based.  When I feel bad or stressed I eat or shop.  It's so hard to get out of that...especially if you feel your never going to come out of poverty anyway no matter how much u save.   I've heard folks on my job talk about the bit of change they have after some bills are paid...and now with the new Health Care...alot of them feel they are being taken to the cleaners even more and don't know what they are gonna do. Save what?

That was an excellent article. The title made me think it was going to go one way but reading it changed my mind.

okay. 
you're in research so you'd probably know.. 

these places said it was around there.. its not upper middle class but according to different sources in some of these links, many studies say its middle class. (some put it on the lower end, some don't.. some go down to 35k) 




(not the most credible typically.. but their source is msnbc) 

eta, of course it depends on where you live.. but i think most places say its around 40-70k.

Who wants status more rich people or poor people? Poor people of course and these expensive things give meaning to them, that they have achieved another level. It's about show and tell, not what you actually have and values. Humans are superficial we like bonding showing we have status or we made it. Being a good person gets you no merit, but your own merit. You have 30 and 40 year old men and women with low self esteem and destroyed images of themselves.
 
So of course you are gonna have this culture persist.

Most of the "poor" people I know "waste" their tax returns on the luxury of transportation (buying a halfway decent hooptie).   The rest end up catching up on bills they haven't been able to pay all year and paying back people they owe money to and get back to zero.  If they can squeeze in a computer for the kids or a decent TV so that everyone isn't crowded around a 19 inch tube I'm okay with that. 

But in our world we like to focus on the extremes ($2500 purses and such). 

Everyone in this thread has probably splurged on something they could have done without but didn't want to.   The simple act of paying more for shipping because you don't want to wait is foolishness (GuiltyEmbarrassed)
