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. 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, 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. 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?
