My Love Affair With Makeup

Friday, February 26, 2010
I just wait for those cosmetic company “gift with purchase” promotions. My favorite makeup products come from Lancome, Clinique and Mary Kay (great skin care). And I love The Body Shop’s body butters. Well, Neiman-Marcus is having one of its “beauty events”, and yesterday, I decided to quickly run in and pick up the Clinique and Lancome promotions.

The kindly saleswoman who gathered the products I wanted asked if there was anything else I might need, since all the cosmetic companies were offering gifts with purchase for the big N-M event. So I said I’d look around. She suggested I check out a new product they just began carrying, Le Metier de Beaute. The sales woman at that counter was excellent and very convincing, so much so that I let her apply the makeup on me. I ended up buying two eye shadows, a mascara and liquid makeup from her, in addition to buying enough Clinique and Lancome to qualify for their gifts.

What was supposed to be a 10-minute errand turned into over an hour and cost me a LOT of money for makeup, most of which I didn’t need. I’ve obviously lost my mind. So what is it with women and makeup? I just love the stuff and now have enough to get me through the next 10 years, if I wore it every day. Somebody please help me!
