If you're like me, you're a sucker for those special "purchases" featured at the high-end of the cosmetics counter. You know the ones I mean: spend X amount on a pricey brand, and you get a cute little (or not so little) bag filled with goodies. The bag pictured here was my latest seduction, offered by one of the oh-so-classy old school lines--hence the vintage fashion image:
I have to say, this promotion was a goodie. There were two full-sized lipsticks and some sample sizes of their skin care line. But here's the issue--the price point is almost always a number that requires you to buy more than one thing. So I found my lightweight foundation with sunscreen (a must for summer) but still had to spend 7 bucks to reach the magic number. There is NOTHING for 7 bucks at this particular counter, where the littlest lip gloss starts at $23. Let's just say I went a little over budget, which is, of course, the purpose of these things.
But the bag rocks, doesn't it?
