To My Beautiful Blossoms, Today's surprise entry is a letter of me saying sorry. I'm sorry I left you in the dark by going silent for nearly a week. Or for not giving you a heads-up for that matter. But I'd like to explain it now, if possible. For the last week, I've been entertaining …
But if you don't have time to invest in and take care of yourself, why would you believe that someone else claims to have that time for you?
And whenever we come across a Sephora or MAC store, it's nearly impossible to resist the urge to get a quick touch up on the makeup of the day or do a quick makeup makeover with all the... tester... products...
Nowadays, there is a general consensus that we simply "don't have time" to do things: we don't have time for or do XYZ so we look for something that offers convenience for us. Yet somehow, it's normal to say that we're willing to binge-watch our favorite TV show on Netflix or Hulu or Instagram what we're doing.
While it may seem unfair to compare skincare and makeup brushes (they're practically apples and oranges), they do serve the same function: they are tools we use to create our personal aesthetic.
For the heck of it, I typed "makeup brushes" to see what Amazon will deliver for me. Oh, they delivered alright - they just didn't warn me that I'd end up with a raised eyebrow in the process.
My eyes nearly popped out of their sockets when I checked out Kim's go-to products.
