My Changing Consumerism Habits

Thursday, June 28, 2018
For the past year, I have managed to figure out ways to beat this 'system' of mindless spending on beauty products. Even though I have social sites for beauty, I still don't buy the latest and over hyped products and collections. As I get older, I started realizing beauty is expensive, time consuming, and often wasteful. My overall beauty routine is changing along with my consumerism. Here are some things I have done that have actually helped me avoid being wasteful and finding products that fit in with my makeup routine.

Disclaimer: I am not criticizing or laying down the law to anyone who enjoys spending money on makeup. I respect and understand each one has different consumerism methods.

Soooo These Products...

Wednesday, May 2, 2018
I'm wondering about some products that have caught my attention over a year ago, and if they are still selling. I'm not trashing the companies but rather curious to see how much longer these products have a chance of actually making it.

sooo..... more warm toned palettes🙄

Sunday, April 8, 2018
Warm toned palettes took over 2017. Spring barely started, and I saw more warm toned palettes 😲. Some of these warm tones may have a pop of blue as their idea of  'color.' I'm not trashing these palettes or the companies. These are very pretty palettes even though they look like colors I may already have. If you are a single shadow or palette collector, there is likely a chance you already have these colors. Here a just a few palettes I've seen so far.

If I had to Rebuild My Makeup Collection 🤔

Saturday, April 7, 2018
I have accumulated a sizeable amount of makeup throughout my time blogging and for fun. Lately, I've been thinking, "what would happen if a time came where I needed to rebuild and start over?" Rebuilding probably won't be too difficult. My taste in makeup and how I choose to buy products has changed so much. I've pretty much learned throughout my 10+ yrs in wearing makeup what works and it is fine to stick with products that are worth repurchasing multiple times. I currently do not have plans to rebuild from the ground up. However, I would like to start rebuilding certain parts to my collection.

I Actually Forgot About Some of These 2017 Launches 🤭

Friday, April 6, 2018
Last year, I came across some very promising launches. I was so preoccupied with other beauty products and old favorites that the new launches must have slipped my mind. It pains me to write this post because Anastasia, Kat Von D, Urban Decay, Too Faced, and Tarte are still some of my favorite lines and make products I like using. I'm not trashing these companies in any way. Last year, their launches just didn't cut it for me.

I love the Colourpop line. Four of their new Spring launches (many more) have struck my interest.
