The First Step Is To Admit You Have A Problem

They really need to have a Cosmetics Anonymous.  I need meetings.

In all 12-step programs, the first step is to admit you are powerless over your addiction and that your life has become unmanageable.  Well, I guess I can admit the powerless part, but I'm not so sure about the unmanageable part.  I will admit I'm a beauty addict, and when I step into a store dedicated to cosmetics, I am powerless, but unmanageable?  Anything is manageable with the right lipgloss.

I received a gift card to Sephora for Christmas - fifty dollars - not too shabby.  So I went to the mall and spent over an hour wandering around the store in a trance.  There's so much to look at.  And so many brands I covet - Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, Nars, Laura Mercier, Guerlain.  Skincare and perfumes, tools and accessories.  It's heaven on earth for me.

Eventually, I bought
this because several girls recommended it, this in Mercury - the gunmetal gray color (it’s Vegan!) - because it looked beautiful on, and two of these because I couldn't decide on a color. 

This has been my most productive day so far.  What a great way to start my week.

Amazingly, moisturizing your skin isn’t so difficult, an occasional splash of water may just be what you need to keep your skin properly moisturized and hydrated. This is not to say there isn’t other amazing moisturizers out there
