The Makeup Addict Tag


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?

LOL. Kidding.

Maybe not though, one day.

  2. Yay, very cool of you to do it in video form. I'm taking a more minimal approach as well lately. Well, 90% of the time. The rest of the time I still go crazy. I hope you're not sobbing the night away on a regular basis by the way, I 'awed' when you said that, lol.

  3. Yeah, I hear you. That's why I don't blog every day any more. I'm kind of getting over the whole beauty/makeup thang. And I'm over writing a post about a single lipstick. I'm bored.

    1. Yeah, I don't think I can write about just one product anymore, unless it's life changing.

  8. I'm kind of at that point too. I do want to try more products, but I'm in no rush to. Like, I should probably try some Rimmel lipsticks out sometime, but I'm so content with what I have that I don't feel the need to go spend more money on products I'll probably throw away unfinished.

  9. I think it's natural for blogs to change direction depending on your interests. Do what feels right to you. :)

  10. 200 POLISHES??? Fun fact, the first blogs I actually started reading back in the day were nail polish blogs....which really made no sense because I DON'T WEAR NAIL POLISH??? I'm just a sucker for all the pretty colours and finishes though. I'm also totally over this whole makeup thing too, not gonna lie. These days, most of my $$$ are spent on home decor stuff, BUT YEAH, I'd totes love to see some food posts :D

    1. If you shot home decor, IKEA would literally come knocking on your door.

  11. I feel like this is the year of blogger fatigue. Keep talking about what you love, whether it's beauty or brunch! I've noticed that I'm moving away from doing a lot of straight-up reviews and doing things I enjoy writing about more, like nail art, photographing stuff around town, and lifestyle stuff. Unfortunately I have somewhat pigeon-holed myself with "Do Want Makeup" haha.

    I still love polish but I'm over my days of buying everything. My collection has grown to the point where every purchase decision comes after heavy consideration of whether or not I already have something exactly like this. The new addiction is lipstick for me ;)

    1. I love both your beauty and non beauty content! Honestly, your photography is so beautiful you could get away with anything.

      My collection's at about the same stage, my roommate recently asked me what the last product I wanted was, and I don't think I've lusted something in SO LONG.
