I remember the times I started to get hooked with makeup. As a normal beginner, I usually prefer the most affordable things I can try- the cheapest lipsticks and foundations. Inside me I have this thinking that they are all the same, like how generic medicines and branded medicines work.
How many times I bought a nude lippie just to get the perfect dupe for MAC Velvet Teddy? I really couldn’t remember. All I know is that I spent more than the price of MAC lipstick and still walk home not happy.
The hard lesson that I’m trying to say here is dupes are great alternatives but they will forever remain to be the lipstick that you really don’t want.
I’m nothing against any one of you who prefer to be practical in this matter. But you have to trust me to the fact that I’ve tried most of the brands available. From time to time I still buy drugstore lipsticks because of me being impulsive, but history repeats itself and I feel that I just wasted my money again. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not generalizing all affordable brands. I’m still a big fan of NYX and Wet and Wild Megalasts.
Like what Selena Gomez said, the heart wants what it wants. If you really want something, get it. If you still can’t afford it, work hard and think of it as your big prize. Don’t settle for anything that will not make you really happy. Don’t settle for less than you deserve.
