I don't want makeup anymore.

... For Now.


Lately I have been having the rare moment of not craving for any new makeup item - as of now, my "necessary purchases" include only Maybelline Volum' Express Cat Eye Mascara and the much-raved about Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - read reviews by ParisB of MyWomenStuff, Shen of Shen's Addiction, Nikki of AskMeWhats, Shopcoholic Khymm, and Nikki of MakeupinManila (now that's a lot of happy bloggers satisfied with this affordable product)! And that's not because I want to try them out, it's because I am running out of mascara and liner!

While this easy abstinence is a very good thing, I am afraid of the repercussion: i.e., I'll go haywire with spending the next time I buy! This always happens, my sister can attest to that. I'll tell myself I DESERVE new items because I have been a very good girl for a month or so. God knows that I don't need more stuff - only the HGs that have to be replaced upon expiration - but what the heck, I'm always curious about new collections and colors and bogus promises of gorgeousness by our consumer-driven beauty industry!

Can I befriend this woman? Haha! 

Ah, spending habits. Woopdeedoo. I am sure I am not the only one suffering from this form of neurotic behavior, haha. I mean, an indication that we're in love with buying  makeup is having a beauty blog that has to be updated all the time. Hay.

And this tirade is because... I'm broke.



  1. Haha! I can totally relate to this post of yours. :P I knew this post has a catch and it is not about you no longer wanting make up in general. :D

  2. Can I befriend this woman? Haha! -You are so cool! :)

  3. We can never not want makeup, Pammy! =) Hahaha! We've invested too much!

    Maria, thank you. I hope that made you laugh haha =)

  4. i love this post! :) makeup are really pain in our wallets and to think we can't use it and finish it all! but still, we buy and buy! What a world! :P

  5. Makeup is like a drug, once you get addicted to it, hard to get rid of it. If only money comes easily, ;) But then we appreciate what we bought more with a more hard earn one.
