So here i go again, searching for a lipstick to match my eyeshadow, frequently passing by the limited edition lipsticks i coveted so much pre purchase. In fact, just in limited edition packaging i have 38 i can find… do i really need them? I have hundreds of lipsticks, some would call it excessive (they do) but at the time i REALLY feel i need that new shade, the new packaging, to add to my collection of fancy-cased Mac Lipsticks, outside the realm of Pro discount i pay the full cost, sometimes twice over, convincing myself i NEED this one for my kit, and i have to get it. NOW.
This is a well known selling tactic, create a scarcity, and watch people scramble to get a piece. If someone said they were discontinuing Dairy Milk Fruit and Nut, i’d run to Costco and buy 12 boxes. I love them, and i can’t imagine not having them in my life. And i think if you are in the blogging world it becomes easy to be spending a fortune on the ‘new’ lipstick everyones talking about, the new nail polish shade.
Too many people i know end up with boxes of make up they barely use, and all because of a hype in sited by well… big brands and other bloggers.
So what i wanted to say, and am not doing very well is.
Please don’t waste your money, you work too hard to get it, and I’ll try to stop wasting mine.
