Ok, so maybe it's not as serious as having a flesh-eating disease, but it's serious enough to make me stop and look myself in the mirror and say, "There must be a Ryan Gosling meme for this."
What is wrong with me guys? I'm notorious for being a jew and not buying things unless they're on sale, or a necessity. And even then, I better have a damn coupon for that necessity, and it better be high quality.
But after playing a mere beauty game to find out what my emotional color reading was, I was t h i s close to spending 22.95 PER bottle of eyeliner. Here were my quiz results.
After reading the first one I was like, YES. I do indeed have control issues. Maybe I can cure my problems by controlling what goes on my face by buying that dark blue eyeliner.
Then reading the second one I was like, YES. You're right make-up website. My subconscious does want success. Maybe if I say yes to buying that silver shimmer eyeliner it'll be easier to obtain.
Oh my gosh. These guys at Lush really have me pinned down. I am quietly motivated. I should keep steadfast and buy that bronze eyeliner. I mean, these are all handmade, after all.
I was at the checkout page, ready to whip my debit card out. The entire time I was thinking, "Well, I don't own that much make-up anyway... I might as well splurge and buy some. The colors match my wardrobe, and I can wear it the next time I go out... And the website design is so witty and chic, I mean look at the fonts they chose! I love good typography... And the make-up is all handmade! I love buying handmade things!"
Then, right before entering my pin numbers I stopped. WTF was I doing? Why the hell was I about to spend $70 on three bottles of eyeliner? What. Is. Going. On. I almost fell prey to perfectly packaged and marketed products, that's what's going on.
And that's when I realized that I had a problem and wrote this blog post. I need to keep myself honest. I still have no idea why I almost spent that much money on make-up, something that I care very little about. I still have no idea why I sort of want to buy them...
But, I'm glad that I didn't. That would be stupid. Right?
