You Know You're Obsessed With Makeup When...

a shot of one of my lipgloss drawers


Just for fun- I posed this question on my Beauty Broadcast Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/beautybroadcast ... The thought came to me when I was searching for a pen in my purse and kept pulling out either an eyeliner or lip liner... at that moment, I thought- wow, you know you're obsessed with makeup when something like this happens. I thought it'd be fun to hear your take, and I was thoroughly entertained while reading your comments! Many made me laugh out loud, or think- I thought I was the only one who did that! LOL :) At the time I'm writing this, there were 75 comments- so I picked some of my faves to post here...

You know you're obsessed with makeup when...
  • "You empty out your underwear drawer to make room for more makeup. :)" -Dania
  • "When bonding with your two year old is watching Makeup Tutorials together and she calls it 'painting'" -Laura
  • "You're in hospital and you send your mother to MAC to get the new collection." -Alison
  • "When you have a weekly/monthly budget (as if it's a necessity like groceries). I'm guilty of that." -Elena
  • "When you buy more mascara, even when your old mascasa is still fresh!" -Misty
  • "When you hide packages that come in the mail from your husband and hope he never notices the exponential growth in you collection (guilty again)!" -Cynthia
  • "When your down and sad makeup is the only thing that makes you happy..(.i mean it)" -Sirsha
  • "...you HAVE to do "the rounds" at the drugstore even if you were there just yesterday." -Jacqueline
  • "When you spend hours watching make up tutorials on youtube and u are notoriously known for getting in trouble for putting on make up in class : / lol." -Katelyn
  • "When you also join beauty broadcast on facebook....." -Louise

  4. My sister recently told me that when we both lived at home she counted my lipglosses and I had 72 of them. The funny part is that I only wore maybe 5 of them.

    While driving, you see a billboard that says "ELF Yourself" (In reference to Christmas) and you think they're talking about ELF Cosmetics. XD

  15. Wow. I just have to say that if feels great to know that I'm not the only one who hides packages from the hubby! Sometimes I even open the package at the post office. It's a great way to bring less "evidence" home! =)

  22. haha! my overall spending is low, so I don't have the budget worries, but I do use the phrase "playing with makeup" and do spend too much time shopping for makeup and watching/reading makeup blogs. Maybe I'm stlil infatuated and not quite obsessed.
