I find keeping track of expenses/adhering to a budget along with having a list of what I want/need to be useful. These seem to help me stay more “on list” rather than getting excited over something just because it’s a “good deal.”
There are so many, and while many US-based brands ship internationally, often between shipping and duties, it may be cost prohibitive! I wish brands like ColourPop and Sydney Grace had additional distributors for other regions.
Urban Decay is the one that comes to mind–I feel like they used to have a strong identity, but it’s been clouded over the last five or more years. I also think they went from being consistent to becoming wildly inconsistent.
Happy Wednesday! Here's this week's survey, which you can copy and paste and share as a comment.
- Your skin tone/coloring:
- LE product you regret buying?
- LE product you wish you had bought?
- LE product you miss the most?
There’s a part of me that still loves Urban Decay, but they’ve discontinued so many of my favorite products (with no real replacements), and a lot of their newer releases have been underwhelming.
Tell us what you love and hate about...
It’s nice to have a lot of shades in one place that often go together (some more than others), so it can take the guesswork out of a look. The downside is that it is hard to hit the right notes for every buyer, so you often end up with a few shades that are less usable (because of things like one’s skin tone) or useful (preferences).
