Makeup, skincare, beauty products, OH MY!!!
Makeup, skincare, beauty products...I'm in LOVE with it all. It's been a fairly hefty obsession of mine for a few years. Ok, more than a few years. It all started for me, probably 9-10 years ago, when I was touching up my makeup, under bad overhead incandescent lighting, that I came to the horrible realization, that I hated my skin. Oily t-zone, old acne scars, uneven skin tone, and my makeup never looked good. Back then, I was suuuuuuuuper frugal (read: CHEAP), and used whatever was on sale. Spending money on products was not something I wanted to do, figuring it was "all the same". I am here to say, it is DEFINITELY NOT ALL THE SAME!!!! It has to be said, that all products are not created equal, and there are some beautifully crafted quality items, and there is complete and utter CRAP!!! And, these types fall in all price points. I've used really nice budget friendly products, and I have used completely crappy, super expensive products, that leave me to wonder how the flip they keep selling that at the prices they do.
But, I digress. So, after the horrible realization that my skin was a complete nightmare, I began my search for good quality skincare. Something to help control the oil, even out the skin tone, and help me create a beautiful canvas for makeup. I tried everything and anything, and found a product line that helped me become satisfied with my skin. It wasn't cheap, but it also wasn't crazy expensive either. It definitely stretched me out of my comfort zone for spending money on myself, though. If you were to look at what I spend now, it would be laughable at how much I have changed!!! Seriously!!!
A few years later, I fell in complete love with a different skincare company, that improved my skin so much, I haven't looked back. My love for quality products grew, and expanded to so many categories, and now here we are. I've evolved my passion for these products, and am sharing that love with whoever will let me!!
Check back often, I will have a variety of beauty related posts. If that's your thing, I hope you stick around. Thanks for reading!!!
