Random Ramble: If It Ain't Broke...

I had a thought the other day…I was wondering why I continue my search for HG products when a lot of the time, I have already found them and they are nestling in my existing makeup collection. I just can’t seem to help myself from hankering after something EVEN better, something that will transform me and make me feel amazing.
It’s like the old saying “the grass is always greener”. I find a product that meets my needs, works wonderfully and makes me feel good about myself. Then a couple of months down the line, I get bored using the same product all the time. I start looking at new launches and all the pretty packaging and start to wonder what those new products have to offer. So I end up cheating on my HG product! I am a serial HG product cheater! *hangs head in shame*. I can’t help it though, I start to take products for granted and the initial excitement wears off. Then it occurred to me…I have a dysfunctional relationship with my makeup collection! I am always tempted away by shiny new compacts with pretty designs.

But the best thing about this is that after a couple more months, I use my old HG product again and rediscover the magic! I realise how good it is and always was. It’s like rediscovering a great song on your iPod…you can’t believe you ever forgot about it or stopped appreciating how good it was. So I need to change my makeup mantra once and for all…”If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. I’m not promising anything though…I may need therapy or something…

What about you guys? Do you find yourself perpetually searching for products with HG status?


  1. I keep searching for the 'perfect' nudeish pink lipstick. I feel like I've found it with MAC's California Dreamin' but at $40 a piece I don't wanna use it all up :( haha. Of course my only answer to that issue was to go on the MAC website and haul a whole bunch of nude lippies I've heard good things about. I probably have all the makeup I need already though, but yes, I continue to search and purchase.

    hope your weeks going well!

  2. ahhh memoirs of a makeup addict! lol The ONLY things I have stopped searching for *completely* is my face wash and lipstick...That's it!

  3. Isnt that the whole point of being a beauty blogger that we are constantly searching for our HGs!!!

  4. Ohhh now i finally realized its not just me,now ive recognized my disease,the part where i shop uncontrollably and excitement wears i know :D :D its good though im not alone :D
