Let's not refer to it as an addiction. At least, not a current one.
It's weird for a beauty blogger to say, but I think I'm kind of over makeup. Does that sound negative? I still love everything it can do for people -- giving confidence, expressing creativity and for some people, showcasing their true selves, but I think I'm kind of over products.
That might be beautysphere blasphemy, but I think I've gotten to that point where I know what I like, I know what works, and I don't really want to try too many new things. Even my great loves of nail polish, lip gloss and brushes have calmed down. I've gotten to the point where I have everything I know I'll use and I probably won't repurchase until something runs out.
Then again, maybe that was the goal the entire time. I started writing here because I'd purchased way too many products that I didn't use, and I enjoyed using them other people (mainly Tod). After four years of this space, I've tried, tested and thrown out enough product to know what I'll never purchase again, and to have decluttered away everything I've used a few times.
I can feel myself pulling away from beauty and more into lifestyle, because let's face it -- when your favourite YouTube videos are makeup storage ideas, you know you're more about the organization/home goods life than anything else.
Not to say that beauty won't still be a priority -- it always will be -- but how would you guys feel about seeing a food post pop up every now and then? It'll likely be 100% breakfast-related because I am all about that brunch life. Or maybe a few things about fitness?
Maybe not though, one day.
