My Shopping Startegy

Hii my beauties 💋  !!

Let’s talk shopping, you must see me buy all these makeup products and think, damnnn she shops!! I mean yeah, that’s part of my job as a beauty blogger to try out new stuff (plus is kinda fun to keep trying new stuff). Butttt, behind all that shopping is a carefully drawn out strategy that helps me guide on what to buy and what not to buy, and that is what I will talk about in today’s post.




Let’s get into my thought process:

As you might have seen, from those little glimpses I give you on my insta stories, I have A LOT of makeup, I mean not a lot, but definitely more than the average consumer, so because I do have all that (and love every single product I have) the process of buying new makeup is very strict, before buying anything I ask myself these 6 questions:

  1. Do I own anything from this brand?
  2. Do I like the brand?
  3. Do I own anything similar?
  4. Is it special? What does this makeup product offer that the others I have don’t?
  5. Can I afford it?
  6. Is it worth the price?

And only if I answer all these questions positively I buy that product, otherwise it’s just not worth it.

Let me share an example of something I bought recently, Fenty Beauty’s new highlighter, Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil:

  1. Do I own anything from this brand?

Yes, quite a few products actually.

  1. Do I like the brand?

Yes, I do like the brand and its products.

  1. Do I own anything similar?

I do own other highlighters, but I don’t think I own anything like this.

  1. Is it special? What does this makeup product offer that others don’t?

It’s a completely different product and formulation. It’s something new and different.

  1. Can I afford it?

Well, yeah.

  1. Is it worth the price?

I think so.



So as you can see, this is my thinking process before buying any new makeup product. I would like to add that I am super strict about some products, such as eyeshadows because I do use them less often and it’s quite easy to get repetitive with eyeshadow, and less strict about lip products because, well I LOVEEEE buying lipsticks and you can tell by my collection, LOL, plus it’s something I wear every single day.

Other makeup products such as mascaras, brow pencils and eyeliners I prefer buying at the drugstore because it’s something that I use up quickly and quite frankly, drugstore has really good ones. And other products I like buying from both sections, drugstore and high-end.



So, this is my shopping strategy, what is yours? Let’s chat about it below.
