In the beginning, I definitely stayed in one brand, and a lot of that does come down to accessibility and affordability (it was MAC!). MAC is totally a gateway drug 🙂 But in the long run, no, and I think it’s better to buy the best products from all brands instead of settling for products from just one brand. Every brand will have hit or miss products as well as hit or miss shades.

I love a good sale, and if something’s discounted, that’s just more money in my pocket for something else, but if a brand is often available at 30-50% off their regular price, then I definitely don’t bother paying full price. It’s like an upcoming sale; if you know it’s going on sale, you wait a week until it does to buy it! I think it cheapens the brand in the customer’s perspective; it’s almost like saying your products aren’t worth the real price you charge but half of that.

If there’s a product I like, I would keep using it, no matter the status — that is assuming I was a normal consumer and not a beauty blogger. Since I am a beauty blogger, I am usually testing something new, so I don’t have a chance to use many products extensively once I’ve finished testing them. There are a few products I reach for on personal days, and that is when I use what I want to and not think about how it relates to the blog.
