Class was skipped today. By me. It was the first time since the program started that I skipped a class while I was in town (I’ve skipped two others for traveling/holiday purposes). It was productively spent at the mall. Yikes. I never feel good about myself after leaving the mall (I need a whole new wardrobe!).
We did spend almost an hour in Sephora making up our faces with all the testers. There was a powder foundation that made my skin flawless. $35. I justified it for self-esteem reasons and hunted out the necessary make-up brush. $25. Yikes. But I forged ahead to the cash (guilt twinging).
$79.10. What happened to my $60 purchase?! If $60 caused guilt then $80 felt ludicrous for make-up. I hesitated and asked why the price hike. She responded that the brush was $38 but when I asked where I could find the $25 brush that I intended to buy (not a very organized brush section) she gave me a hasty “I don’t know”.
“I’m sorry, I can’t spend that on make-up”. And walked out. Maybe a bit embarrassing but glad I didn’t complete the sale just because she had already rung it up. My skin doesn’t have a flawless sheen but I would still have a knot in my stomach if I had dropped that cash.
