Makeup Snob

I’m sure we’re all a bit snobby towards products/things/others when we know much about it.

I’m not a professional makeup artist or anything, one of my hobbies just happens to be makeup related. I’ve actually spent well over (at least) $5000 in the last five years. Which obviously that’s around $1000 a year, but for someone like me who makes a little over $13000 a year, that should show you that I value to have the latest palette over eating for the week.

However, that being cleared, I tend to know what is good for my skin and what I don’t like, because not all makeup is the same. I’m sure in the last couple of years, Younique has popped up on your feed, and how the lashes are amazing and so is the foundation.

This last Christmas, I caved, and I bought both the foundation and the mascara. Long story short: they are amazing. But unlike some people, I don’t shop just one brand. I like to purchase from different companies.

For instance, Laura Mercier has wonderful translucent powder, and the eye sticks (for eyeshadow) are amazing. Very pigmented, and easy to use.

Also, I love Too Faced’s Sketch Marker for the liquid liner, not only is it fine pointed, but the pigment is wonderful.

While the foundation and lashes were amazing regarding Younique, it’s not like me to just stick to a brand. My favorite thing in the world are Sheet Masks, and does Younique carry them? No. I don’t mind buying things from other companies, but I wish some of the presenters mixed it up a little bit. Add some other colors in, because we’re supposed to be broadening our horizons, not just sticking to one thing.

Of course, if you’re comfortable with it, then you can. But I don’t think many beauty bloggers stick to just one brand.




Why, yes, I am flying Delta Airlines.

(Actually this post is queued, so forgive me for not having actual current feelings about flying.) But I will say that traveling does stress me out a little bit, and not just in the social anxiety way.

It’s more of like I have to deal with all these other people that I will never see again, and never (probably) even think of again. (Though if I think about it that way, than maybe I should think of them again).

Flying stresses me out because it’s the thought of “What happens if our flight is delayed?” or “What happens if some freak accident happens and I’m stuck somewhere?” Will any of these situations happen? No, probably not, and I just knocked on wood around 15 times just to be absolutely sure.

My parents live in Orange County, New York, and we’re flying into Duchess County, which isn’t too far away. Maybe closer to 30-45 minutes away. It’s a small airport, so it won’t be too terrible, and my flight leaves at 7:40a Central time, and I should be in New York by 6:15p Eastern time. (So naturally I am either at an airport now, or in the air)

I cannot wait to see my family, and I hope that Thanksgiving will be a memorable time, filled with many more happy memories. I also hope that I won’t lose my mind when traveling or get sick. I also hope that I won’t get bored.

I’ll have Pokemon Sun to play for my 3DS, and I got a lot of books to read on my Kindle Paperwhite.

I also always carry on my stuff, and I cannot decide if I want to do a duffle bag again, or if I want to do a backpack, but we’ll see. I think I’ll do the duffle bag to fit in all my makeup and shoes.

Anyways, hope your thanksgiving week is going well, because I know mine will be.

Thank you,
