Musings of the Day: The Makeup Graveyard, Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust, Here Lays Some Old Makeup I Wouldn’t Trust!

makeup grave yard
Ahh the makeup graveyard…

It’s where long dead cosmetics go to rest in peace. It’s where that new lipstick that looks so amazing in the store but ended up not being so great at home goes to lay its weary head. It’s where that blush you absolutely LOVED last month resides when it’s replaced with that new blush that’s the hottest shade of the season.

Count me wasteful but I rarely return cosmetics because 1. I hate the hassle of doing so. Seriously, even with a receipt don’t SA’s treat you like a criminal when you have to exchange or return something you don’t like? And 2. I hate returning makeup I used, I dunno…seems weird to want my money back for something I already tried out. I feel guilty somehow.

So what happens to all this makeup I’m not using or stuff that’s old or stuff that’s been replaced with the next best thing in my makeup world?

Musings of a Muse: Is the Honeymoon Over?

Honeymoon Period

I dunno about you but I have periods in my beauty and skincare life when the honeymoon is over.

Dig?

No?

Well….

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.

Musings of the Day: Are You a Skincare Cheater?

Skincare Cheating

Most times we go through life never changing certain things about our existence. For example, chances are you’ve been banking with the very same bank you’ve done business with for the last 10 or more years. There isn’t any reason to change a bank really right? You pick one, you start doing your banking, and chances are you never bother changing it for some other bank….

Alot of tiny things like this fall into out daily routines…heck even skincare sometimes becomes something we rarely change. We pick a brand and most times we stick with it because it’s what works best for us.

Do you mix and match brands?

Or do you stick with one brand and just use everything from the brand…..

Say your skincare is Lancome do you have Lancome Night Cream and Lancome Eye Cream and Lancome Cleanser…etc…etc…

Or are you completely unfaithful to your brand and simply use a night cream from Philosophy and a cleanser from MAC and maybe you throw in a daily moisturizer from Shu.

Question is, are you a skincare cheater?

Jump to see if I’m cheating on my skincare!
