At the beginning of the year I was in the states. We don’t have Sephora stores over here in the UK and I pray to the Make Up Gods that they open a store at some point. It's cosmetic heaven, I could easily live there for a week or two. Hopefully they will reach this shore and in my city. I lost count of the amount of times I went into these stores. I spent a few dollars in there too.
My favourite purchases from across the pond are without a doubt my Kat Von D eyeshadow palettes. They were a new range to me (obviously I knew who KVD was) so I think that helped my love. I love the colours, the quality and the packaging is lovely too. It's highly pigmented and easily blended. However as soon as I got them I was thinking “but what happens when I run out“. Now this is silly as I have a friend in the States who is more than happy to go purchase anything I need and post it to my door. I still however find myself “saving them for best”. Do you guys do this? Keep your favourite or expensive make up for as long as possible by not really using it?
I used to do this with perfumes. I had cheaper everyday stuff that was "ok" and expensive nicer perfumes that I adored that I only wore now and then. I then realised how silly this was. Why have these wonderful things and not use them? I now only wear perfume that I love. Regardless of the price or where I’m going, I will wear it. So I’m going to try and apply this to the make up I have too. What’s the point in having it if I’m not using it? So today, even though I don’t have any exciting plans I’m wearing some of my Kat Von D and I’m happy.
So do you find yourself saving things for special occasions only? If so what is it and why?
