Are you picky about the beauty products you buy? Do you spend a bit of time contemplating your purchase or what item you really want to get? Do you make many impulse buys (that may or may not work out well)?
I definitely contemplate a great deal when I’m looking at buying products these days.I have a fair bit of makeup, so I try to make sure I add valuable pieces to it, rather than further accumulate the same shade of green shadow or yet another plain pink lipstick.
What hair products can you not live without? Are you a hair product junkie or are you a quick comb-through and you’re out the door kind of gal? What products are essential to giving you a great ‘do?
What do you do when you get a huge, noticeable pimple? Do you hide under the blankets? Load up on concealer? What do you do to solve the ghastly mess? Is there even a real solution?
Do you think retailers are pushing the holidays too soon? Does it feel like they come earlier every year?
What’s your favorite facial sunscreen? What’s the best one you’ve found for your face? What makes it so good?
I’ve been using Oil of Olay’s Complete (SPF15), but I just ordered Shisheido’s Face/Body sunscreen (SPF55), so I hope that one works out! The Olay one has lasted me forever, and if Shiseido’s does the same I’ll be happy to pay the price difference.
P.S. – What are your weekend plans? I have a take-home final exam, so I’ll be busy doing that. In fact, I have to start it as soon as it’s distributed at noon today, because I’m headin’ out bright and early Saturday morning to meet up with my girl, Karen, for Nordstrom’s Trend Show. Then, off to my parents’ house to babysit my sister and write the rest of my memo.
Are you intimidated by beauty sales people? Do you hate going to the makeup counter/store because the makeup artists or salespeople intimidate you? If you aren’t, have you been before? If so, how did you get over it?
When I first started to get into MAC, the makeup artists would intimidate me a bit, only because I felt like such a beginner. It definitely doesn’t help that it’s not unusual to encounter a few snobby artists and sales people during visits to the store or counter. How did I get over it? I realized it wasn’t worth the trepidation – I loved makeup, and that should count for something. It did help that I was getting better at applying makeup, but honestly, I’ve gone without makeup a lot in the past year, without feeling uncomfortable. They’re there to help me, and if they don’t want to help me, I can bring my business somewhere else!
