hello everyone! so i went shopping the other day at macys. i found myself browsing through the many make up counters. most of the time i would just browse and when i notice that a sales person is trying to help me i would get annoyed because i would like to browse in peace. but that day i welcomed the help. lol i think it is because i actually wanted their opinion on things and was intending to buy items. they were actually very helpful... well the one at the clarins counter anyway. the lady didn't pressure me to buy things only suggested things that i asked for and gave really good advice. well i think it was her sales tactics because it worked.i ended up spending about 100 dollars at that counter. and it might sound a lot but i got so many samples from her that i didn't even ask for. the service was amazing. now when i walked to the lancome counter it was a different experience. the sales lady was very pushy. i wanted to browse around in peace but i guess she needed to meet her sales goal because she was extremely pushy about buying things. i ended up spending around 50 dollars there because lol i wanted to buy makeup. >.< anyway this first paragraph is totally going nowhere so i will go to what i wanted to say.
is it just me or does high end make up just seem way better? like i know the saying "you get what you pay for" but it only seems to be for some people. honestly i never really liked drugstore make up. it seemed to never really worked for me. when i was in highschool i did use drugstore foundations and it never worked out. i never got the right shade. also quality didn't seem to be that great either. i bought drugstore eyeshadows before and they all seem to be in the trash after about a month. again quality just wasn't that good. lol it seems funny to say but in highschool i generally never really wore make up because i didn't want to use drugstore make up and didn't have the money to buy high end products.
now that i have a great job i notice myself buying a lot of high priced products. i love the experience of buying high end products. the sales people give you lots of help and it is just a better experienced. i noticed lately that in my make up collection there is only a few drugstore products. i felt a lil bad because i felt like i was discriminating. but honestly it is because drug store product just isn't up to par with their high end counterparts. and i also noticed taht when i do buy drugstore products it is actually a waste of money for me. like for an instance. drugstore lipsticks. i wasn't into them until i heard so many good reviews about them on youtube. ofcourse i ran out and bought a few. now they all sit in a drawer. i used most of them like 3 times. why? because the product just isn't great. sure the color is pretty but on the lips it feels so dry and cheap. i rather use my mac or shiseido lipstick (which costs me 25 bucks). why? because they are pigmented, moisturizing, and just feels so dam luxurious on my lips.
anyway i think im going to end it here. does anyone else out there feel the same as i do? or am i just spoiled by the high priced experience?
