I am a big time shopoholic. The moment I see any new brand coming up I am all ready to visit their store and try them out. Blogging has made this thing even worse because it keeps me more aware about new brands. Now I am getting addicted to onilne shopping as well.Whenever I see any discount coming up I visit the site and end up adding so many things in my cart that my husband often can’t believe his eyes.
This time me and my friend Mamta went for shopping and this conversation took place at Revlon counter.
Me- Wow!!! New Nail paints I want them Mamta
Mamta – Yeah! Me too
(We both started swatching and SA happily showed all the nail paints to us)
Me- I am taking these five
Mamta – Yaa but I loved these too also on you.
Me- Ok then I will take these two as well
S.A- Mam this is of our new range and it is really looking great
Me- O.K I will take these two as well.
So I landed up buying 8 nail paints from Revlon where I had not even planned of buying even one before starting from my place.
To make things works now I don’t even remember how many nail paints and what different colors nail paints I have.This is what I came to know when I came back home.
I already had same colour Revlon nail polish with me which I have used so many times and still I didn’t remember about it.
2. There are some nail paints which I rarely use such as yellow, blue and orange.I am going to buy them from inexpensive brands like Street wear and Elle 18.If I truly love any one color then I willl splurge on it later.Elle 18 and street wear have okayish quality and they don’t dry out nails or make them yellow.
3. Wait for Sale – Brands such as Maybelline and Body Shop do have good offers in sale season so it is better to buy products from them when the Sale is going on rather than buying when they have just been introduced.
4. Small packaging and Sample – I have a habit of buying everything big even if I don’t need them.If I go for jeans shopping I will think of buying 2-3 jeans together.Same goes with blush and all.So now onwards I am going to ask for a sample product so that I can know wether it is going to suit me or not and then think of spending on it.
Also, I am going to buy small size products rather than bigger one which just increase the weight of my dressing table.
5.Swapping products – I have already started this.I give all my skin care products or make up products to my friend which don’t suit me or which I am not interested in using any more.Best thing is she has dry skin therefore now all my costly products which breaks me out can be of her use and I wont’ feel gulity of buying some thing wrong.In return I am sure she will realise some day that she can also give me products which are meant for oily skin
I hope you are going to be with me and won’t let me splurge un necessary .Atleast not on the product which I already have
