January: Beauty in Hindsight

 I forgot to publish this post. Better late than never!

I post a Weekly Beauty Edit each Sunday but I think it would be fun for me to look back at each month and ponder. Sometimes time changes the lens we look through, even if it is only a few weeks. Especially for someone like me who is so fickle with their makeup. No loyalty!

2015 Beauty Resolutions - How Am I Doing? Grade B+
  • 11 resolutions,failed on 2, need improvement on 1 = B+
  • Still meeting my obligation of testing new foundation! My favorite resolution!
  • Did not buy matte lipstick 
  • I have been using my Rogaine twice daily AND going the extra mile using HairMax, too
  • I went a week too long on coloring my roots - need improvement!
  • No bangs cut - dodged that bullet for now, but did buy a bangs hair piece. Um, no
  • Did not depot single shadows, not a single one in January. Fail.
  • Have not bought eye liner!
  • Still not using lip liner but I haven't bought any either, very tempted, had them in my hand.
  • Darn. Still rubbing my face dry instead of patting. Have to put a sign on my mirror.
  • Not even tempted to look at or bid on vintage perfume. Last bottle of Arpege broke my heart
  • Did not buy body wash! Really, really hard with BBW semi-annual sale.
