10 Things Girls Think While Makeup Shopping

"Walk away. You don't need it."

1. "I'm just gonna be in and out because I know what I need—30 minutes, tops!"
Probably one of the biggest lies women tell. We all know it never only takes 30 minutes to buy makeup.

2. "Is it safe if I put this on my face? That sponge looks kadiri."

9. "Walk away, you don't need another black eyeliner. WALK. AWAY."
Let the rationalizing begin. This one says it’s smudgeproof, this one says it’s waterproof. Those are two different things, right? So I can technically own both and not feel like such a hoarder?

10. "Look at all these beautiful and shiny things I cannot afford!"
There, there, girl. Time to save up for that lipstick you want.
