Shopping Crisis

I thought I got a pretty good deal for my new perm and colour. But apparently, I was the only one

I'm not a smart consumer, that much I can tell you. I never know what is the right price and what is not.

And I suck at bargain hunting. That saddens me.

I do like expensive things, I must admit. But I also like to spend wisely. Nobody likes to pay more than what they should.

In the spirit of shopping wisely, I'm rebuilding my makeup collection.

Compared to my hopeless obsession with fashion (especially bags and shoes), I'm not much of a makeup junkie. But I'm a born hoarder, so I still ended up with an impressive pile of products that I hardly use.

One of my biggest problems is my inability to say no to sales people. As a result, I always get talked into buying things that I don't need.

So now, I'm gonna put together a range of products that I will actually use. I'm starting from scratch, and I'm downsizing. Who needs 200 different eyeshadow colours when you're always reaching for the same ones anyway?

Cosmetics in Malaysia are much cheaper compared to Australia, so I plan to do all the shopping in the next 2 days. But I'm pressed for time, and I don't even have time to do research on makeupalley!

I feel like I'm shopping blindly again. Hmm, I don't have a good feeling about this.
