Musings of a Muse: Is the Honeymoon Over?
I dunno about you but I have periods in my beauty and skincare life when the honeymoon is over.
You know that fresh from the package excitement you get when you purchase some new bit of makeup or skincare? The type of excitement that has you convinced that the product is changing the way you look, the way you feel, the way your skin looks, etc…..I swear I have a honeymoon period with every single makeup item and skincare product I’ve ever purchased. This is the time where I proceed to promise said product how I’ll love it for ever and ever and ever and how I’ll never cheat on it and how thankful I am to it for making my face look flawless or making my lips look fuller…
Ahh yes the honeymoon period is such a joyous time.
But like all good relationships the honeymoon periods ends.
For me the honeymoon I was having with Lush Skincare (which was a VERY longstanding relationship) is slowly coming to an end. I’ve been with Lush for several hundred years and that’s saying something considering variety is the spice of my skincare life however I depended on Lush for many things and I’ve been so busy testing new stuff that I’ve used it alot less lately.
I also feel like it’s the end of my decade with Lush because I’ve just started using the Philosophy Miracle Worker Collection and want to see what sort of results I get from it. Since Lush doesn’t offer much in the ways of anti-aging I felt like it was time to go back to Philosophy for my skincare needs (I was a Philosophy girl prior to my Lush obsession).
I’m positive the honeymoon is over with a few other things in my life but at the moment Lush sticks out the most.
How about you?
Is your honeymoon period over with your favorite moisturizer? Or that new lipstick you got last week?
Which products are you no longer in a steady, serious relationship with?
Why are you breaking up with them?
