Shopaholic Remorse

I knew that I had a bad feeling about this.

I did a rough estimation in my mind, I think I've spent RM2k on makeup and skincare alone in the span of 2 days. This is not good.

Actually, this is very very BAD considering that I'm currently broke with a capital B.

(Bee said in the background, "And you complained that you are too broke to afford a laptop.")


The shopping bags are still tucked away somewhere in the house. Out of sight, out of mind.

I vaguely recall buying these:
  • Select SPF 15 foundation, blush, foundation brush and brush cleanser from MAC.
  • Lotion, lipstick, pressed powder, eyeliner pencil and mascara from Clinique.
  • Lipstick and eyeshadow from LancĂ´me.
  • Moisturiser, lotion, lip gloss, gel cleanser and makeup base from Kanebo.
  • Pore Minimising Cooling Essence, eyelash curler and concealer from Shiseido.
  • XXL Volume + Length microfiber mascara from Maybeline.
  • Some hair cream from the saloon.
  • Lots of junk from Sasa.
And I still haven't ticked off most items on my to-buy list! Ugh, I'm so regretting it now.

Why oh why do I always act on impulse?! When will I learn that people do not have a right to spend when they're broke?

I better get myself a job real quick when I get back to Melbourne, that's all I'm saying. :|

I'm not a fan of MAC, Clinique or Lancome unfortunately lol... But look at it this way. You are going to a country where cosmetics prices are through the roof. If you don't buy anything else there, consider your RM2k well spent!! :) Guess I was late with any recs lol...

I've heard lots of raves about the new Chanel Teint Innocence foundation but haven't really tried it.

Did you try Shu Uemura for eyeshadows and blushes? Also their eyelash curler. For mascara, drugstore is probably best. Eyeliners, I stand by Bobbi Brown's gel liners or Silkygirl Funky eyeliners. Concealers my new fave is Make Up For Ever Full Cover. Review will be coming soon. For loose powder, I'm also told that Make Up For Ever is great and its cheap here for its size. I'll do up a post one day anyway in your honour :)

Good luck in Melb! :)

Paris Beaverbanks: Well, it's quite impossible for me to not buy anything at all back in Melbourne, but I'll try. Keyword being TRY. Haha!

Thanks for the great suggestions, girl! I'll make sure to keep checking your blog. There're still plenty of room on my 'list' anyway. :P
