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.
