Crazy Life Decisions Women Make All In The Name of Makeup

crazy life decisions woman make all in the name of makeup, funny stories, must read makeup stories

Hello there beauties! Welcome to another segment of TheFabZilla Chitchat, a place where you and I  tackle topics outside product reviews or laugh at our own idiosyncrasies. In short, it’s when we let our guards down and talk like regular humanoids. I initially thought of doing a weekly chitchat but my notoriously busy schedule won’t allow my mind to think outside the box. I’m dead tired in most nights I tell ya! Anyhoo, while showering, the warm water could’ve tickled my right brain to function so before I forget things again, let’s touch base on crazy life decisions WE make all in the name of makeups. Yes, with emphasis on WE. I see no other reason why you’re here besides sharing the same interest for all things beauty, right? Can you relate with any of the following aberrant behavior?

1. Falling for FREE shit when ordering online…

I listed this number one because I fall for this tactic many many many times that I lost count already! One time Hub said “did you buy the whole store?” Referring to a box-full of Victoria’s Secret bath products and undies that can probably last me two years, #noshame . My stupid defense? It’s free shipping with lots of goodies when I buy more! Yeah tell me about it. Funny how we don’t want to pay $7 shipping but go ridiculously gaga with $50 free shipping!

2. Can’t leave Walmart or Target without new makeups!

I know I’m not the only one here. Don’t you feel hyper excited at the sight of Target? I can’t for the life of me check out with groceries alone! I need to browse the beauty aisle every chance I get and pick up things I know I don’t need anymore. GoodLawd show me the road to redemption, ugh!

3. The No Makeup Makeup Look 

I laugh every time I see video upon video upon video tof the infamous no makeup makeup look. Yeah even more when I see several makeups used to achieve a no makeup look: primer, concealer, foundation, setting powder, concealer again, powder, setting spray. The real deal my friend is not to wear any makeup at all. Either you do or don’t.

4. Returning or exchanging unwanted stuff is damn expensive.

How many times did this happen to you? You don’t like the item you recently bought or received in the mail so you decided to drive down to Sephora to return or exchange it for something else. Big mistake! To makeup junkies, Sephora is one helluva giant candy store! Why can’t we just stick with the plan, woman!!! Why can’t we just return things and fight the temptation of procuring yet another makeup! Somebody call 911.

What other crazy things you’ve done which I failed to mention? spill the deets, c’mon!

    OMG you are so right on the money. I *avoid* Target for that very reason, I always fall down that rabbit hole or at Walgreens/ CVS. The buy one get the 2nd one 50% is my poison.

    Is there such a thing as Makeupaholics Anonymous? I need to join because I'm guilty of all of these things (except #3). {sigh} #girlproblems

    Haha, I love free stuff when it comes to online shopping!!

    I am so with you on the "no makeup" makeup look. My downfall is when I am feeling either really down or really bored/stir crazy, my favorite thing to do is go to all the drugstores nearby and buy a bunch more stuff that I don't need!!

      I can't blame you, sometimes it's my perk-me-up- reasoning too 🙂

    I am so with you on the "no makeup" makeup. I used to get all caught up in the "spend $XX and get free shipping, but stopped when I realized it was a trap. My irrational makeup decisions crop up when I am feeling especially down or cooped up/stir crazy. My solution is to go to all my nearby drugstores and buy a bunch more stuff I don't need!

  6. May 14, 2014 / 3:52 pm

    LMFAO OMG these are SO funny and SO true! There are so many times I've held off of ordering because I wanted free shipping. Then you decide you MUST add on $5 more to get the free shipping, because that makes sense but then you find a few more things… and suddenly you just bought Sephora.

    • May 16, 2014 / 5:38 am

      LOL! That free shipping is a stupid bait to us to buy more….I know we're smarter than that but the call of temptation triumphs over legit reality!

  7. May 14, 2014 / 3:57 pm

    ha ha ha ha ha…. I freaking love this. I am soooo like 90% of these. So made me laugh hard! Great post girl!!!

  8. May 14, 2014 / 6:25 pm

    Luckily I am guilty in half of those things only – especially in this spend $(enter number here) and receive free shipping 😀

  9. May 14, 2014 / 8:01 pm

    Oh I hate the quagmire of returns! Let's add another ridiculous decision – we can call it 4a – wherein I KEEP the $19 eyeliner that wasn't working out for me, just because I don't want to face the accusing looks of the SAs when I try to return/exchange it. Get over it lady! *smacks self* You are not a compulsive abuser of the returns policy and you are completely within your rights to use said policy when you need to. Which leads us right back to regular number 4….. hahaha

    • May 16, 2014 / 5:41 am

      LOL! Yeah the pains of returning!!! I know someone who's huge into returning stuff, I told her the staff probably knows your name by heart but would rather call you the "queen of returns"

  10. May 14, 2014 / 9:10 pm

    I am so guilty of all these! Except my no makeup makeup look consists of powder and mascara. Still makeup… so i guess its more of a "minimal makeup makeup look"

  11. May 14, 2014 / 9:58 pm

    Hubs was just asking me about the 'free' shipping thing, too. How many times do I spend more to get that free shipping!! I have a serious addiction – I'm trying to NOT go to Walgreens or CVS to check out the beauty clearance because I don't need anything, and don't know where I'd put it anyway… but I want to see the clearance stuffs!!

    • May 16, 2014 / 5:42 am

      the clearance section is a magnet to hoarders, hahaha! it's hard to resist temptation

  12. May 14, 2014 / 10:27 pm

    Haha, I'm guilty of a few!

  13. May 15, 2014 / 2:10 am

    LOL! I always laugh at how much makeup it takes to do a no-makeup look!

  14. May 15, 2014 / 3:00 am

    I love this post. The other day I went into Sephora to return a mascara and had to laugh because I was picturing them telling me I couldn't return it and I was all ready to be like…sweet please enable me to buy more! haha

  15. May 15, 2014 / 4:40 am

    I'm totally guilty of all of them especially going to walmart and not getting anything I just can't do that

  16. May 15, 2014 / 1:39 pm

    I seriously love you! This is the best post ever! I wanna hang out so I can just laugh…cause I think we would.

    • May 16, 2014 / 5:44 am

      It will be one helluva laughter, you and I…. the world will collide, hahaha!

  17. May 15, 2014 / 5:55 pm

    I am guilty of ALL of these. I love the look on my boyfriend's face when I say I "JUST" need to run in to Target/Walmart… =)

  18. May 15, 2014 / 7:16 pm

    LOL! I am still on the hurt for the perfect no makeup look though- forever searching…

  19. May 16, 2014 / 1:01 am

    Free shipping or free goodies is my defense mechanism when my boyfriend asks me how much my order cost me: "Like… 45$…but I didn't pay the shipping and I got a free mascara! So it was worth it! " That or, "It was 50$ but it's like worth 65$ in stores!! I saved so much!! "!!! I'm a shopping and a makeup addict and I totally DON'T assume it! 😛

    • May 16, 2014 / 5:45 am

      Valid reason!!! These are things only women can understand, haha!
