NOTE: This is a collective haul!
Most of the items above – Wet n wild palette, lipstick (not in photo) ELF brushes and the NYX eyeliner – were pre-ordered from Julie, the pretty face behind LabelleDubai. Since it’s pre-ordered, I feel like every purchase from her is justified. I had to wait for couple of weeks to get everything but it really is worth it. Her shop is by far the cheapest online seller I know here in Dubai. I will definitely purchase from her again.
Others – MAC pigment in Blue Brown, eyebrow pencils from Prestige and Maxfactor, Maybelline GreatLash, and Duo lash glue – were bought randomly. Like whenever I pass by the drugstore and I just can’t leave the shop without getting anything! Please tell me how to stop.
I actually imposed a makeup shopping ban to myself for the month of April and May. I failed. Obviously, I wouldn’t be posting this if I didn’t. The image above is a proof of my failure. And I will be failing even more because May hasn’t ended yet, and Beautyworld Middle East is happening ’til Thursday! Help!
On my defense, I have been really stressed this past few months. I needed to reward myself. I needed an outlet – SHOPPING! I have no control! Sometimes I hate myself for it, but recently, I’ve only been buying things/makeup that I really want and sure that I will use. And I am quite proud of myself that these cost less than 500AED! (I usually spend more!) I just hope I will have the discipline to not to buy on my next shopping ban. Universe, help!
Do you have this problem too? I really wanna know how to stop buying things. Let’s help each other!
