I’m totally guilty of makeup snobbery… in public at least (the blog doesn’t count).
In private? Not so much… though I’ve definitely become more snobbish as my collection has grown. It wasn’t that long ago that MAC seemed like such an aspirational/posh brand… and now? Not so much.
That’s the problem with being a beauty addict. It’s a never-ending journey from Collection 2000 to Chanel and beyond…. and this, my dear readers… is probably why Terry de Gunzburg can make a rose-gold infused lip balm and I have to be physically restrained by my cousin until I swear on my life that I won’t drop the £45 asking price for it. I’m still seething with resentment about that. It’s limited edition for chrissakes!
On the other end of the scale?
Well… at the moment? I’m resisting the urge to head to Aldi and buy one of everything from Lacura. I refused to get into the hype first time round… but a recent email from one of my lovely readers has ignited a hankering. The thing with these brands is that the pricepoint makes it just so damn easy no?
Go on… give me a little push, should I go and explore my local German cheap food emporium for their beauty lines?
And if I choose not to accept my mission… what’s a misread vowel between friends?
Are there any brands that arouse the makeup snob in you?
