Are You a Makeup Stalker?

makeup stalker

I’ve been known to stalk the mailman and UPS man and FedEx guy…yeah, umm sorry but not sorry! I’m also a makeup stalker. What’s a makeup stalker (and a fragrance one)?


We’re those people that hop from drugstore to drugstore trying to locate all the latest goodies we read about on our favorite blogs. We’re those people that stalk Urban Decay, Too Faced, and Tarte’s Instagram for morsels on their newest collection and we proceed to visit Sephora and Ulta daily after seeing those new goodies in the hopes of finding them in store already. Because hey, sometimes you run into a fellow makeup lover at stores that will go into the back and magically produce the latest palette or lipstick that isn’t yet on the floor.

We’re the people that read fragrance forums and perfume blogs telling us about the latest smellies that are launching and we’re the people that head to Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Macy’s immediately after to smell those fragrances because we likely NEED to own them.


Probably not but being a makeup addict is damn fun.

Are you a makeup stalker?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    oh i’m def a makeup stalker…you know this already lol =P i love sneak peek and knowing what is being released! my ups guy laughs at me- there have been launches where i run up to his truck to get my package

  • Maggie

    Guilty as charged…as if tracking a package 4 times a day will make it magically appear faster. The UPS guy knows better than to leave a package with the receptionist without having her call me to let me know exactly when he arrives. It’s also super frustrating reading about new drugstore releases because it feels like weeks go by until they are in Texas…I miss my NY drugstores!

    I’m actually stalking him today.. I ran out of my trusty UD Naked Skin foundation so I bought the new Tarte one after hearing the formula sets pretty matte. It’s being delivered today! If it doesn’t work, I’ll return it and go back to UD.

    I’m such a makeup stalker. When I go shopping , forget clothes, I buy from consignment stores at a fraction of the cost. However I don’t mind spending good money on makeup, perfume, or my skincare.

      This is me, too. I love thrift stores for all my fashion choices!!

  • Zovesta

    Yes… I live an hour away from the nearest drugstore, WalMart, ULTA, and Sephora, but I stalk like a mad man online!

  • Adrienne

    I will admit to being a stalker and I blame you Muse! For doing such a great job and letting us know what is coming out and where because its usually 3-4 weeks before things pop up in OH and you provide THE BEST swatches so I already know what I want and which colors so I start stalking Bed Bath and Beyond and Walgreens. Keep up the good work as you are appreciated and have saved me a ton of money and returns and also made me a VIB at Sephora!

      awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww i love you hard right now thanks Adrienne 🙂 made my day!

    I keep a running list of products I want in my phone with release dates and in order from how badly I want it to just swoon (and get later w/a coupon. LTD ed stuff always makes it to the top. This way I can calm down my obsessive stalking (and impulse buying) if I know that I really won’t see it for another week and then reward myself for holding off.

  • Chanty

    I’m so bad for that. I’m constantly in and out of Walmart and shoppers drug mart almost daily when I see something new is out. I have a ridiculous stash of goodies not even opened yet. I just get so excited when I finally find them.

  • kellly

    Absolutely. Totally. I even ask at Ulta if they have the “new … whatever ,,, in yet” and they generally don’t even know about it yet! If I see something I like on a blog, I’m all over it until I can find it in stores in my area! There’s generally a long wait of about 3 weeks before new things get to my area, so it’s 3 weeks of stalking until I can find it almost every time!

  • Iris

    Definitely for certain products and collections I must have. Online ordering is easy enough but for the physical shops, I’ve called around and bookmarked in my daytimer when collections are to be released so I can head to Sephora to get them.
