Yeah, so, I have an addiction.
No, not beer. But good guess, you guys!
I cannot stop buying lipstick. I have 30 different lipsticks – most of them are some variation of red. I don’t mean, “Oh, I have a few tubes of lipstick.” I mean, I have a lot of lipsticks.
I have 30 different lipsticks. I have a drawer in my bathroom that is mostly filled with lipstick. I usually have two or three of them in my purse at any given time.
This is a ridiculous amount of lipstick, right?
I don’t buy a lot of the cosmetics. I have one foundation I use. I have one face power I use. I don’t wear eye shadow or mascara. I do fill in my eyebrows, but I’ve only got one powder that I use for that, too.
It’s all about lipstick for me. I’ll just stroll through Target, Walgreen, Rite Aid, wherever, and I’ll end up buying a lipstick and maybe a tinted lip balm, even though I don’t need them.
My makeup drawer is jam-packed with lipstick, and if I try to clean it out, I end up keeping almost of them.
“No, I can’t get rid of that one. I might wear it.”
“Oh, what if I run out? I might need that one if I’m desperate.”
“I wore that lipstick on my wedding day almost 8 years ago. I can’t get rid of that one. It’s sentimental.”
I wish I was exaggerating.
I’m not sure why I keep buying lipstick, when I already have so many. Maybe I’m hunting for the perfect lipstick; the one that will be that perfect shade of red and last all day without rubbing off when I eat and drink and without drying out my lips and makes me look 15 years younger and 30 pounds lighter.
I mean, are all those things too much to ask from one lipstick? GAWD!
Tell me about your makeup drawer. What are you collecting in there?
