Confessions of a Narcoleptic

Help Me, Help You, Help Yourself

Hi, my name is Jamie and I am a Sephoraholic. I love buying cosmetic products. I can’t explain it. I don’t even use half of the stuff I buy, but I still want it, I still waste money on it and I still go into Sephora, even though it is a huge weakness for me. (To be completely honest, spending money on things I don’t need is a huge weakness. I totally “buy” my feelings and simply browsing is a favourite pastime.)

Sometimes though, I find a gem. A product that is so worth every penny and I want to shout it from the rooftops. So it occurred to me recently that maybe, my ridiculous spending habit (joy) might be beneficial to others. Learn from my mistakes. Don’t waste money on items that are over-rated and over-priced.

Don’t get me wrong – I know I am not one of those¬†flawless, beautiful Youtubers or bloggers that host beauty channels and share all their secrets and tips. But I thought that this might make my experience a little more valuable. I’m just a regular girl, with everyday, thirty-something¬†body issues, that isn’t out to make a buck. And obviously, I haven’t found any one magic product to turn me into one of those perfect hosts…except maybe photoshop.

So if you are at all interested in my beauty-buying intel, read on. And stay tuned. Because I’ve bought oh-so-much and I am here to tell you what works, and what doesn’t – for me anyway.

Please comment with your own finds and experiences – I would love to hear about the few products out there that I might not have bought yet – ha! And let me know if you think this is even remotely interesting to you so I will know if I should continue spending time, as well as money, on this vain and ridiculous endeavour.

Go forth and beautify wisely. At least someone should.

    Hey, fun idea!! I’d love to hear what you love/hate, I’m the worst at trying new beauty products – they can be so expensive! I’m usually buy the same old things… time to mix it up!
