Last week, I showed you what happens when you use that simply adorable RMK Fairy palette from their 15th Anniversary collection. Essentially, you lose all the detail in her pretty little head (although RMK has a very innovative way of getting around it! 😉 ) I spotted an interesting comment from MisSmall that I thought would make interesting discussion amongst us makeup mavens 😀
Fairy!!!! Oh I can never bring myself to use it! Or I’ll most likely do what I do with most of my purchases (eg. colour pencils), one to keep and one to use. Am I the weirdo here or do most girls do that with their pretty things?
She wasn’t alone, because there were quite a few comments along the same vein of not being able to use something that looks as pretty as that.
What say you, Ladies? I’m sure we are all loathe to dig into a pretty makeup palette and lose the design over time which sometimes, turns it very blah. Would love to hear your thoughts and naturally, here’s mine! 😉
I’m sentimental about a lot of things, but pretty makeup palettes aren’t one of them. So as you might guess, I’m a “user” not a “collector” of pretty makeup palettes 🙂
I will look at them in all their pristine glory and go “Aww…” and I will die a little inside when I take my brush to the product, but ultimately, my personal belief is that makeup is only beautiful once you use it because its purpose is to make US look beautiful, not just to sit around looking pretty hehe…
So that’s me. I use my makeup palettes, pretty design or not. I don’t buy to collect although I may buy because its pretty. But I will ultimately use them.
How about all of you? Are you swayed to purchase the pretty makeup palettes that all the various brands have been coming out with? Do you use them or do you keep them in their pristine glory as a collector’s item? Or maybe you adopt the buy one to use, one to collect theory? Incidentally, I met a couple of people who do this, so I am really curious about what you do/think 🙂
