I believe, no matter how many eyeshadows a beauty blogger has in her possession, there will never a day where she goes “Okie, I’ve had enough eyeshadows to last me a lifetime and no more shall I ever buy”.
That part about having enough eyeshadows to last a lifetime is definitely true, and I think many of you share that sentiment, but to stop just because there’s enough? That’s what vanity consumerism is all about, isn’t it?
Sure, there will be times when the month’s bills hits the ceiling and you will find your makeup buying obsession absolutely reproachful, but a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do – BE HAPPY!
And nothing makes me happier than buying new makeup! (Of course there are, but you know what I mean!) The promise of endless possibilities with new shades, textures, finishes, combinations… and that’s only eyeshadows!
When Makeup Geek (MUG) launched her own brand of cosmetics, I was elated! She’s such an inspiration – famous beauty blogger and now successful business woman! I mentioned her in my Makeup Geek Haul (I got brushes too!) so you can go over and check it out.
MAC Singapore sells their eyeshadow at SGD26.00 a pot and it’s A LOT to pay for one shade, and I have barely made a dent in any of my MAC eyeshadows. They should make smaller-sized versions and I’d be happy to pay for a slightly-more-expensive-than-half-price price.
But for the same size and equally good quality, MUG prices its eyeshadows at a fraction of MAC’s! MAC – USD14.00; MUG – USD 6.00.
Let’s take a look at my first seven (and definitely not last!) Makeup Geek eyeshadows.
