I've just been in Myer and if you spend $30 on anything in the beauty department you can purchase a bag of beauty goodies for $20 (worth $180).
Gorgeous stuff in there!!
Well, I raise you the fact that I spent over at least $350 on 4 Armani cushions that I never needed (I wasn't even deterred by the fact that the discount was 30% when I normally don't even get out of bed for anything under 40%) and a Guerlain foundation from Sephora that Yoh inadvertently totally sold me on ages ago (see that influencer effect doesn't even fade with the passage of time).
I will see you over at the Haul thread soon. Ha!
I am also determined to start treating my mortgage as a starved pet I need to feed more regularly.
Yeah, there is that. No point having all this gorgeous stuff if there is nowhere to put it all.
Okatko did you mean no where on the face or no where (no more space) under the bed? wink wink hahaha
I'm contemplating getting rid of shoes, that's how bad my situation is. and they're not even really nice shoes but I'm hanging on thinking but what if I need them one day. and you are right about face space. I don't normally wear make up on Saturdays and Sundays but I've taken to putting it on just to get through products faster.
hahah...ded! Reading this and loving so much our beauty community! I was not buying anything beauty related for over a year. Ran out of body everything and where I am water is worse than awful. My (body) skin was getting so so bad. Then RR came in (good sized haul!) and before that had small purchases (one item here and there like body wash and lotion to soothe the skin) etc. This long break from buying anything and not having trials, meant stash was clearing so well.........that I bought "couple" of pairs of shoes. xD hahaha
Unlike you Okatko, I went other way around! Get rid of beauty stuff to make room for my boxes of shoes (need to keep in boxes for protection in dustbags too, so they take a "bit" of space! Pieces of art...I'm nuts).
. I stopped now as all space is done in my wardrobe. And I do not place my stuff anywhere in the unit, but my small in-built wardrobe. Even skincare/haircare I use. Nothing under the bed or anywhere else, so space is easy to clean.
This thread is dangerous. I do resist. And live trough your hauls. Then shop my stash. And still keep an eye for deals here...for some of my most used products, to get as a backup.
I should really shop my stash. Stopped buying skincare a bit. Haircare is set. Makeup is outta control.
I don't need any more shoes but I am well acquainted with that form of madness. I have a stiletto shelf in my office! I threw out most of the paper files - trying to go 99% electronic - and filled a shelf with my heels. Same pointy-toed style, different colours. Really miss them in lockdown.
Noice. You have room in your office to store stuff. I try doing that at Christmas and store/ hide the Christmas presents (cause there’s no hiding places left at home) but the boss’s wife doesn’t like it.
I went through a stage of loving shoes a few years back. But now I only buy cheapies.
I used to get cheapies too Okatko (sales from known brands in Australia). But problem was....I went away for 2 years, came back and saw all shoes just fell apart. Without wearing them. Glue , "leather"....all just flaked off and soles were falling apart. So odd. Only my sneakers from Adidas survived (Gazelle, loooove). Now I only buy Italian (or French) made from overseas and (if possible) hand crafted. Had 2 pairs in superb condition for over 10 years before (bought while overseas)...so it was no brainer how to save by buying quality (plus...omg, the designs too are superb!).
Ok, I do have a style that is not really "popular" or "trendy". So not easy to get in regular stores. Some of my fave loafers as an example:
They look deadly. I love them.
I love your style too Yoh. Couldn't walk in the high heels but the other white studs as you would say are gorg!
Frenchy, I do not do high heels either (have only one pair of stilettos that I still am learning how to walk in). Loafers/brogues and sneakers are my thing. These on the right have very wide loafer platform front and back, so heel is low in total. Super easy to walk in (same as in loafers with small 3-4 cm heel).
Oh good. High heels so bad for the back! Also not good if you have a situation you need to run away from!
Strange thing is, I’ve never ever been able to walk in high heels, yet I used to figure skate!
I lived in my roller skates when I was a young kid. I was always getting into trouble for coming inside wearing my roller skates! Then when I was about 12ish I took up ice skating. I never struggled with it, I found it easy, and I wasn’t bad at it at all, even if I do say so myself.
I doubt I could do it now though. Too old!
Deadly is the word!
Okatko, Misfortune...yeah, they can be used as weaponry. haha
Spikes are really heavy duty. Have 2 more loafers with metal spikes (different styles for every occasion...it being a battle or ballet).
Oh kickass I love it!
LOL why do you need 4 cushions?
I added and took away Guerlain stuff in and out of my cart for like an hour. Finally decided to just get a lippie. Luckily I didn't not see Yoh's rave, haha.
I don't need any of them. I liked the look of one but I'm OCD and have this Pokemon trainer mentality like I need to catch em' all. I figured it would eat at me for days if I just got one of them.
I actually started getting back into cushions because I constantly have to wear a mask and need the touchups so I was in the market for one... and ended up with four.
The Guerlain foundation Yoh loved was 40% off so that was actually a legitimate bargain in my books.
I actually LOL at your pokemon comment. Fair enough!!! I tried to justify buying cushions because they are handy to take out but I also never re-touch after I get out of the house. On most days I am not even wearing foundation. eyes roll at myself
I just had a look at that guerlain foundation and the review looks promising. Unfortunately (or fortunately) my shade (either 2W or 3W) has sold out.
Hope it suits your skin type Ethelinde. I still have it and it is only foundation I have actually. Takes me ages to use up as I use tiny bit and not that often (now as my melasma is not visible). Bought it as it came out. People were mentioning "scent" , mine has no scent/fragrance. Bought it at DJs. Love the bottle. It is comfy and not drying the skin. Wow, wish it was 40% off when I bought it haha
The Sephora sale is still on. I won't open it yet, don't want to it to oxidise too much but I suspect there would be a fragrance. I own a Guerlain highlighting palette and my understanding is most if not all of their products are usually infused with their signature violet parfum. The Meteories range is at least.
The bottle is weirdly angled! I'll take a pic in a bit for the haul thread.
I actually thought you were talking about cushions for your couch, which shows how little I know about make-up. My hubby says I have a shoe fetish but I don't think I have, I don't even own a pair of high heels !
Sephora Sale!!!! too good to miss!
For many years I have had severe allergic reaction to normal hair colour that contains ammonia and peroxide.
Upon receiving the item and taking it out of the parcel, the packaging elicited a tingle of excitement.
