I swear I love makeup. I love the ability to create and the re-create. What I am not loving is that makeup lines are launching left and right and now the current makeup lines keep launching new products literally every 2 months that it is hard to know what is good and what is long lasting. You literally cannot fully know if you love the products because you have another freaken product being thrown in your face. I do not even own a television and I see more advertising being done on YouTube, not so much on Twitter and a lot more on Instagram.
Shit, fucken Instagram feeds you those products to you as if you were dying from starvation and you have to have this product or you may not live. I cannot stand that. It has now gotten to the point where I refuse to buy products unless they are, prepare yourself for a list, 1. On sale 2. I can use a coupon code 3. It comes with a gift 4. I can use Kohl's Cash and 5. It's On Sale!
The last products I purchased were from Boston Store which was another bottle of the Beyond Perfecting 2 in 1 Foundation Concealer by Clinique, a Acne Wash (I don't have acne but I am prone to blemishes in my t-zone and blackheads on my nose), Take The Day Off makeup removing balm, another tube of mascara from Rimmel London, which is my favorite, that was only $6 from Walgreen's. Guess what tho?! I used a coupon for the Clinique purchases and both products came with 2 gift bags that had even more products. Awwwwww:-). The Clinique gift bags had a 5 sample sized and some regular sized items: coral colored lipstick that looks pretty but doesn't glide on as well as the Wet n Wild lipsticks, trio eye shadow palette with a mirror and applicator sponge (not a fan of those), a mascara (that I have yet to try) face moisturizer and makeup remover. The face moisturizer I will definitely use, probably the makeup remover when I travel and the mascara I will have to test out sooner rather than later.
The point is, there are so many cosmetic lines launching weekly if not monthly and I wonder how come there aren't restrictions on how much can be produced. Seriously. Like all the packaging and the chemicals and the consumption and the waste of the crappy products. It's like HELLO, some of the stuff is not good at all. It is actually bad for your skin in general and the others are so good but cost so much damn money that I really do not want to buy more when a month or two later they are releasing another makeup product that I do not need but want.
Oh gosh. I love cosmetics but please stop overwhelming us with these products.
As I always say, "Quality over quantity. Fuck it. I'll try both".
