Tell Me I'm Not Alone....

Rob often looks at my makeup bag with a mix of curiosity and disgust.  I have two makeup bags, you see.  One bag is fairly small and is full of the makeup that I wear on a daily basis.  It's clean and organized - which are two traits that really make him smile.  THEN there's the second bag.  The reserve.  It's full of makeup that I don't really wear, but feel I should hold on to in case of some sort of makeup emergency.  It's also disgusting.  It's the bag where the blush and/or eye shadows have broken and created a caky, colored mess all over everything inside it.

My problem is that even though I know I have this disgusting bag where makeup goes to die, I still continue to be an impulsive makeup buyer.  I see the commercial, and I'm sold.

I'd feel a lot better about all this if I knew there was somebody else out there who has nine tubes of mascara  in their possession.  Anybody else a makeup hoarder?



Sadly, in all my makeup hoarding, there is only one of these tubes that I actually like!  Eight of the nine will probably never be used again, and will get tossed when the A & E channel comes to my house and tells me that I have to choose between my children and the mascara.

BDEM:  Oooh, yummy dinner!  Yummy and EASY dinner.  Maybe I'll blog about it tomorrow - or the next day.  Heck, I've still got three and a half months left before blog-every-day-for-a-year comes to an end.  Looks like I've got PLENTY of days to share it!  

Water:  60 oz.

Despite your revelation that you are an impulsive make up buyer.....you really do need that killer lipstick! Just sayin'.

Ooooh... Now I'm curious. Which mascara is your favorite?

I am glad that I am not the only makeup hoarder! I have 2 bags of makeup also, only 3 tubes of mascara but lets not talk about the eye shadow. I seriously am clueless on how many I have. Also the nail polish - it is starting to get out of control LOL

I'm a bit opposite. As soon as something breaks and creates a mess I want to throw everything away and start over.

But I am with Courtney, what's your current favorite?

I think I still have makeup from High school.....gross and no I dont use it. It just sits and takes up space.

I think it's genetic. What I wouldn't give if I only had a makeup BAG. I'm afraid I've morphed to a used makeup BASKET. You really drank too shallowly from the gene pool I'm afraid.
