Does your makeup addiction demand constant newness? Do you need something brand new and sparkly to engage and stimulate your interest in makeup? I think part of the appeal of the makeup world and loving makeup so much stems from the fact there’s always something new and interesting to try out be that a lipstick or an exciting new moisturizer.
It’s funny because I have many, many staples I love and use daily. A primer I really love, a concealer I adore, an eyeshadow I constantly use, etc…etc…yet, I’m always out there searching for the next best thing. Why? If my concealer is already holy grail status why am I searching for something else? Lord knows, if this was an actual relationship we were talking about Ashley Madison would make millions on me. I’m a serial makeup cheater and I’m not ashamed to admit I cheat on my favorites.
It’s been a little slow in the makeup world lately and the lipstick index seems to rather down in the dumps. Or maybe it hasn’t, maybe I’m just used to brands releasing things at a rapid-fire pace and I get a little nervous and antsy when no new makeup pops up for me to play with. What will I do!? I begin to develop the sweats, start biting my nails, and develop a case of shifty eyes.
In all seriousness, I think we’ve been spoiled a little by the world of constant new makeup and now we rely on brands to stimulate us with the next best thing! It’s actually sometimes a relief when things slow down for a minute so we can take a break and maybe shop our own collections. But I admit after a brief time I start itching to try something new!
Do you feel like your addiction to makeup demands a constant stream of new products?
Or are you happy with what you have?
Personally, even after discovering some of my holy grail products I just love the thrill of the chase. That’s never going to change!
