I Feel The Need…The Need for…a Haul?

Over the holidays, I went on a product purge giving away a lot of products to friends and family. It felt good to find new homes for products that had gone unloved. Β I felt free and ready to start anew. Perfect timing with the new year.

But over the past couple of days, I got that feeling. If you’re a beauty addict, you know the one. The one that compels one to shop for beauty products in copious amounts. Hauling is often used to describe this tendency.

It seems that as soon as I was able to let go of things, it opened the door to new ‘wants.’ Yikes! Will this ever stop?

At the top of my list is Urban Decay’s Naked Basics Palette. I use the Naked and Naked 2 palettes almost daily, and when I heard about this palette, Β I see that it is right up my alley. Matte neutrals? Why yes please. I know I have many likely dupes of these colours but it doesn’t matter. Β In the words of a famous Hobbit, “I wants it.”

Next on my list are actually repurchases. I am looking to get Diorskin Nude foundation which I finished over a year ago, and Chanel Mademoiselle lipstick which I posted about last week. They are go-to items that I am missing in my daily rotation now.

But aside from these items, I have a serious need/want to shop and just randomly find things. I miss doing this. I know it’s not a bad thing if I don’t do it regularly, right? So, do you have any recommendations? πŸ˜‰

    You’re not the only one. I’ve been getting this urge a lot lately and keep researching foundations and powders. Stuff I don’t really need but have a craving for (difficult to explain to not makeup junkies). And today, I got to crush a very old lemming, I finally got my hands on the Chantecaille Tigers in the Wild palette! At 50% off, it would have been rude not to, right? πŸ˜‰

    Happy New Year x

    I been eyeing off the naked basic palette! I also use the naked 1 & 2 palette everyday so my justification is if I love those two palette, im sure i would love the basic too.

    I have a massive MASSIVE list of things to buy. It is scary. But i am trying to at least make it past January 1st. LOL! Arghh. And all of a sudden, i had this urge to find a new eyeshadow palette, but I think that’s because i just want to wear more eyeshadow, not actually buy more! LMAO!
