I suppose the title sounded quite ominous but it refers to me spending a stupid amount of money when I'm trying to save up.
- Research - usually swatches online, recommendations from blog posts and You Tube videos or I'll randomly Twitter "what's the best product from (insert brand name here)?" I think this 'method' of shopping is the best way to stop me buying random things which I regret 99% of the time.
- Up close and personal - this is where I get extremely annoying according to my mother. I take forever swatching, thinking of uses for products and how much I would actually use them etc. I think that it's important though because as I said above random buying is bad for me, I get grumpy when something is crappy - 3 words Rimmel Sexy Curves - such a marmite product and lets put it this way, I've never liked marmite.
The next beauty to be purchased was the 129 blush brush.
Last but not least we have Illamasqua liquid metal in Solstice, I already have Enrapture and I love it but I felt like I was missing out. I did swatch Solstice at the counter in Selfridges but it kind of took on a green tinge on my hand, it just wasn't as pretty as I wanted it to be so I passed. As usual with things that I really want I obsess about them until I cave in and get them so whilst I was ordering I figured heck why not chuck in Solstice it's more convenient than trekking to Selfridges. Shopping maths helped me through this one - online shopping = £3.95 delivery charge vs petrol to Selfridges = £5 or more!! Shopping maths helps me out alot :)
