I think I have too much makeup – which is a scandalous thought in itself. I mean what self respecting makeup whore has too much makeup?
This makeup whore does. I came to this conclusion after putting together a huge RAOK (Random Act Of Kindess) for a new friend of mine who is sorely lacking in the makeup department and doesn’t have a lot of money to go and buy makeup with. She is a medical student, and has a very limited budget right now on what she can buy. She wasn’t even able to take advantage of the Wet N Wild BOGO Free sale at Walgreens. Anyway I pulled together a package of mu for her, which in my mind was very small, and it didn’t even make a dent in the stage I DO have, but that little bag of goodies like completely over powered what she had previously!!
Even though I know my collection is huge, I still find myself searching through the ads on Sunday looking for the best deals on makeup, epsecially Buy 1 Get 1 Free deals. However I rarely purchase anything from these sales, unless there is a new product that I absolutely HAVE TO HAVE or if I have some really good coupons I can use during that BOGO to make the cheap items even cheaper than they originally would have been. For example, I had a $3 off coupon for any Sally Hansen purchase over $10. Well a couple of weeks ago, Walgreens had Sally Hansen lippies B1G1 free, and I had been dying to try out the new Lipnotic and Natural Shine lipglosses (reviews coming soon) and I got them for a really, really great price with the coupon and sale. I believe I got four lipglosses for about $10. Which was a freaking awesome haul, especially considering each of the glosses went $6-7 a piece.
So until I move on to another obsession (hey, the Twilight movie is coming in 7 months…) I will continue to search for the best deals in the cosmetic world. Whether or not I truly need it!
