So before I go any further, I thought that I should clarify that my blog is about beauty on a budget. I won't be reviewing a lot of higher end makeup due to a lot of reasons. One reason is where I live. The nearest Sephora's is two and a half hours away. The nearest Mac Cosmetics store is three hours away. Ulta is two hours away. lol. I also pay for everything that I review with my own money.
So, as you can see, I have to work with what I got. I don't like to pay for shipping unless I am ordering enough that I get free shipping from the website, which is usually over $50 or $100. Unfortunately, sometimes I just can't justifying spending that kind of money on makeup all at one time. If I really want it, I will wait til I go out of town to pick it up. I am the kind of collector where I will get things one at a time to make sure that I really like it so that I will treasure it. (haha - the mindset of a hoarder) On rare occasions, I will order something online and pay for shipping if I really, really want it and I can't purchase it from a store, i.e. Coastal Scents.
Like I said, a lot of times when I go out of town I will pick up a few items that I can not get in town. If I do a review or blog about a higher end item, I will mention where I got it. Sometimes when I walk into those stores, I just get so overwhelmed. lol. I feel like a kid in a candy store, there's so much to look at, and so much to touch!
So keep reading and look forward to helping your wallet.
