Monday Mix: In Which I Break a New Year’s Beauty Resolution, and Sales

By Voxy  

<hangs head in shame>

I have failed you, dear readers. Last week I broke one of my New Year’s Beauty Resolutions, which was not to buy cosmetics when drunk or angry. I won’t go into details, but it (okay, okay, they) were delicious and came in a very cute martini glass, which you can see in the picture to the left.


It is true that among the items I ordered are one or two that I need for an upcoming event — unusual items that I might have had trouble finding elsewhere. It is also true that in order to avoid paying $6 for shipping, I had to add an additional, er, $X to the purchase so as to get free shipping. Because, see, the free shipping cancels out the extra X — X being, of course, far more than $6, but it’s funny how this math works out anyway.

It is even more true that one of the items going towards the X is Josie Maran’s new Argan Primer Mist, which satisfies two long-standing lemmings: a) trying Argan Oil, and 2) getting a new spray-on facial product that is more than a toner. (I used to use a hydrating mist-on serum thingie from Patricia Wexler’s MMPi line, but it took me so long to get through the bottle that it had been discontinued by the time I ran out and tried to replace it.)

However, this is no excuse. I fell off the resolution wagon only six weeks into the New Year.

Does that leave me off the hook for the other ten-and-a-half months, I wonder?
