This post was inspired by a reader today who was telling me she had mistakenly tried one of Etude House’s new blush sticks. Mistake, how’s that? Well, she unintentionally swatched one of the blush sticks not realizing it wasn’t a tester.
And yes, this has so happened to me.
In particular, this used to happen to me ALL the time at Victoria’s Secret with their little bins of lipgloss. I thought I was swatching a tester and only realized, when it was too late, that it was actually a brand new lipgloss. I will say those gloss bins are sticky so sometimes you think it is a tester and in realize it is a brand new tube someone unwrapped.
In my defense, I’ve done this a number of times and I actually recap them and buy them due to my stupidity to make up for the fact I goofed. Needless to say I have a lot of makeup oopsies in my collection, stuff I didn’t even want but ended up buying because I felt guilty about making a really dumb mistake!
But yeah, sometimes I have one of those “OOPS, Was that not a tester!?” moments.
Have you ever had one?
