Hypothetically speaking of course, but I thought it'd be neat to see what everyone would get.

I'll post mine later, as 1) I need to think about it, and 2) it's time for bed!

i''d really like a g/c for some facials, but since this is for makeup, a Kevyn Aucoin e/s palette, blush & (another) powder brush, Haute Face palette & 2 or 3 l/s.

I haven't the slighest clue what I would want that I could list. I am usually cheap, so my list would take FOREVER. I can't wait to go to Grove City because they have that Cosmetic Company store and then I will be able to see the MAC shadows in person (and cheaper). I would probably buy a ton of those from that specific store though.

Probably first would be a large train case to put all my goodies in! Then I'd probably get a few high-end things that people are talking about... and the rest I'd probably just spend on stuff I use regularly - and some inexpensive things to try out new looks

Tons of MAC e/s and pigments

Stila e/s and lipglaze

Urban Decay eyeshadows

Rocket City eyeshadows

Too Faced Kiss Sticks

Rocket City galactic gloses

Lancome Juicy Tubes

Loreal Colourjuices

The whole collection of the Jewels of Amazon by Benefit: $18 each 4 items: $72

Diorskin liquid foundation, Christian Dior: $38

(I heard it was pretty good)

The neon eyeshadow palette I saw on Ebay: $30 bid

plus a good foundation.
