      I impulse buy often it’s quite sad actually. I cannot just step into drugstores without taking a peek at the makeup/hair aisle. And when I do I get something from each or one of them lol. Just recently I searched and to pick up highlighter for the face. Picked up 2 wnw color icon, online Stila in kitten and 2 Barielle nail cream. Actually, Can’t go in store or online and not get something. Smh.

        I always look but rarely buy at the drugstore.

      I impulse buy all the time! Every time I’m in a store with a beauty section I have to peruse it and usually end up with at least one thing. Usually it’s nail polish or a lippy of some type.

      In 2013, I would impulse purchase at least one beauty item at least once a week. At the start of 2014, I enforced a low-to-no-buy rule for January. Late January rolled around, and I slide my 10-year old car into “totalled”. My only impulse buy for February was a new-to-me car. The low-buy rule is still in effect, and I have even returned some items that I purchased at the end of 2013 but hadn’t used. I plan to keep going with the limited buying until I use up my current stash of product (including samples).

      If I had the money to impulsively buy products I definitely would but it’s probably better that I don’t since right now I don’t have room for a lot of stuff hehe.
      If I did have the funds I would probably impulsively buy A LOT of lipsticks, I’m obsessed with lipsticks of unusual colors. I would also buy a lot of products like primers, foundations, concealers etc. to experiment with and compare with previous purchases, I would adore doing that but it gets soo expensive, right now I just have to research and hope for the best with a product and get new ones after those ones are used up. I don’t have the money to buy five foundations at once but it would be so lovely to do that :p
