a few months ago i bought $75 worth of makeup from e.l.f. (<----do i do a double period there?) gone are my days of MAC and bobbi brown. sister has student loans to pay back. if you do the math, that means i bought 75 individual makeup items. 7-5. why? because i'm friends with a shopping connoisseur who laughs in the face of paid shipping, and $75 was the amount i needed to spend to get free shipping. i wanted to make her proud. it's a bargain, really.
when the makeup came, it sat in the box for at least a month before i opened even a single package. it was just too overwhelming, and i had no idea where i was going to store 75 pieces of makeup.
luckily, a couple of months later, i came across this gorgeous paisley desk organizer at marshalls. now my makeup collection happily resides in organized splendor on my nightstand.
i must admit that having so many choices has made my makeup routine enjoyable again.
every day i stand over my tray of colors and decide what i want to paint with.
