The hyped promises. The high hopes. The cute packaging. Beauty products can be so exciting to buy.
I know, because beauty products are my thing.
You know, lots of people have a thing that they purchase compulsively. Magazines. Office supplies. Shoes.
Beauty products are my thing.
I've written about it before on the blog. I moved from my parents' house to an apartment in NYC straight out of college with a giant plastic bin full of beauty products.
AKA where my beauty products went to die.
I rarely went in there, unless it was to store something I wasn't using. When I decided to roll up my sleeves and make some space, I realized that there was little chance of me using anything in there.
All of the beauty products I actually used were in my bathroom. Really, the bin was just a pacifier that was temporarily cushioning the blow of throwing stuff away. It had been hard for me to do that, because of all the money that went into those dead-end beauty products.
