Make-up. I love it. Always have. When I was in elementary school I started wearing blush. Now, most girls have to sneak it or hide it from their moms. Not I. My own mother gave me a Coty pink blush stick when I was maybe 10 years old. Yes, I was that pale. lol
Over the years, I’ve developed what The Frug would call a “problem.” Disagree. It’s a collection. A hobby, if you will. He collects beer cans, I collect shades of brown eye shadow. Samesies.
One thing I do have a problem with is unpacking. Oh, and make-up bags. And unpacking make-up bags. Decided to empty out the 5+ bags I’ve never unpacked from various trips. Also cleared out my “under the bathroom sink” area, misc. shopping bags in the computer room, and a mysterious box I’ve had on my bedside table for years.
This isn’t all of it. I know I have more make-up and misc. beauty products somewhere. This is the iceberg but there’s more “tip” somewhere! (but where??)
Such a collection. I’m not a snob. There are drugstore items from ELF that are like $1 each and then there’s the high end stuff from Guerlain and Creme de La Mer. (samples only of La Mer b/c holyshitpricey)
The most interesting thing I found was this:
Yes, that’s a plastic MdDonald’s apple pie. What of it?? Most people have them.
Here’s an interesting bit of miscellany:
The pie, a flower pin made by one of the kids in 2008, a cat collar (and Fiona was never, ever going to wear that!), a key chain from a long-forgotten drunk fest on the Eastern Shore circa 1999 maybe?, and a cheerleading pin from the 80s.
Huh. Hoarding? Nah.
So, here are some numbers to chew on:
Hair products – 17
Teeth – 5
Body/tanning/lotions – 22 (and 6 temp tatts! lol)
Nails – 16
Face – masks/creams/lotions – 34
Face – concealers/ bb creams/other – 12
Mascara – 8
Bronzer/ blush/ luminizers – 21
Eyes – 43
Lip – 41
So, 229. Hmm. And yet still not enough.
