DEAR READERS: Do you set rules for yourself when buying makeup?
A friend of mine recalled how her BF's makeup- obsessed mother hauled 30k worth of makeup and skin care products at Chanel's beauty counter one time; that story's so legendary, it puts my Beauty Blogger status to shame; I don't think I can ever spend that amount on makeup in one blow!
This brings me now to a Dear Readers question for February: Do you set rules for yourself when buying makeup?
I used to have a lot of rules when it comes to shopping for makeup because I can be such a hoarder, but thanks to my Beauty Blogger status now, the need to hoard has been lessened and I receive products that satisfy my crave to always try out new products. Still, I can go overboard sometimes!
Here are my rules:
1. If you need it, buy it: Powder foundations, toiletries, and skin care fall in this category; these are my essentials, meaning I really can't do without them.
2. Impulse buy rules: limit it to three: sometimes, I can't help it and I wanna impulse buy, but since I'm a grown up, I set rules: Whenever I feel the need to impulse buy, I should stick with three products only.
3. If it's expensive, think real hard if you really need it: sometimes, I take the thought home so I'll be really sure I won't feel bad after making the plunge
4. "Do you really need it?"- a question I ask myself if I come across something that I really want, but think can do without (gosh, it's a hard place to be in, I swear); this question always helps me decide.
So there are my rules; what are yours?
