Beauty Withdrawl

So, it’s been 19 days since I last viewed a beauty blog or purchased any cosmetic products…gah!  19 days sounds like I’m half-way through right?  40 days of Lent and all that – but when you count Sundays (as I am) it’s actually 46 days, soooo I’ve still got a ways to go :(  I think officially it’s over on Easter Sunday, but I’m traveling to Maine that Good Friday and you know what?  I’m gonna go hog-wild as soon as I get there so screw that.  I figure I’ll have earned it even being restrictive on Sundays so that how I’m going to justify it.  I CAN’T FRIGGIN’ WAIT.

I find the no-buy part of the challenge actually not too bad.  Although, that could be because a) I got my Sephora package last week, b) I have received several swaps that I’d started before Lent, c) I received my RBL Insouciant in the mail on Thursday (!Review coming shortly!), and d) I am just avoiding all places which sell cosmetics lol.  So yea, I guess it’s not been so rough yet there.  HOWEVER, the blog business is really starting to get to me.  I feel out of the loop, with no idea what’s new and exciting, and I miss just reading my regular blogs to catch up on their comings and goings in general.  All of the ladies are smart, entertaining women and I miss checking in!!  So this part is really tough.  Also, I don’t know what to do with myself a lot of the time.  I often just stare at my computer screen wondering what to do next.  It’s like a Phantom Limb or something!!  I did cave and buy a magazine last week…I didn’t rule those out so it’s not cheating and I refuse to feel guilty about it!  I needed some kind of fix, bad.

I hope everyone is doing great and thoroughly enjoying their cosmetic-filled lives – enjoy it twice for me :P

    Lol @ Loodie

    You’re doing so great, though! I wouldn’t be able to stand it and cheat. Almost halfway!

    Just to kind of give you an update, there isn’t too much going on. A few reviews of the MAC Cute collection, which looks like a huge fail. People are starting to showcase fuschia and bright colours in anticipation of warmer weather but no new products, really. Oh and UD finally repackaged their primer potions into tubes, so that’s the really loud cheer you heard from the blogging section of the world’s population. LOL

      @ Loodie: Is my obsession coming off that strongly? LOL! I thought I hid it a bit better than that ;) Seriously, when this is all over its going to be one heck of a day (who am I kidding? I’m gonna be crazy for at least two weeks, haha)!

      @ Liz: You’re so sweet, thank you for filling me in! :) Sounds like yet another snooze on yet another MAC launch. There are just too many to keep track of and honestly, some of the products might be great, sure, but it’s just way too overwhelming and it turns me off. As for the primer potions, that IS exciting…I am well stocked in the original but I was thinking of trying the gold one so I’ll have to check it out in tube form!!

...And what do you have to say about all this?? Dish! :)
