Staying Loyal

From the title of this post I sound like a dirty cheating whore but read on bahaaha. 
 
 
What made me decide to whip out this post was after getting asked to do some monthly favorites. As much as I like reading those kinds of blog posts and watch those kinds of youtube videos, it's just something that just doesn't really apply to me. For those of you who don't know what "monthly favorites" posts are it's just a quick run down of things you've been loving at the end of the month and supposedly you're to do it every month. Do you know how freaking boring my monthly favorites would be Posted Image ?

Get the picture? I stay damn loyal to the products I use. Rarely if ever do I stray from things that just work well. If it ain't broken, leave it alone. I know why some bloggers/youtubers try out so many new things is because they get sent so many goodies and get sponsorship out of it. I have a college kid budget and I make peasant pay -___-
 
There's nothing wrong with wanting to try out new items, curiosity is normal! What baffles me is when I see people get caught up in the whole plague of consumerism and feel the need to buy EVERY newly released X or stock pile Y. Oh god, when the whole BB cream craze hit the american market it made me curl up into a ball and want to roll down a hill into a pool of hot lava.
 
I've tried BB creams way before american ones hit the market. Holy#$@ I sound so freaking hipster I don't care. They didn't work out for me because it's meant to those who have DECENT skin.
 
Minor redness and uneven skintone? Try BB creams!
 
Active breakouts and super dark hyper pigmentation? BB creams won't cut it!
 
My skin was in a terrible state when I tried BB creams and I just set myself up for disappointment.  I wanted full and flawless coverage and I actually strayed away from my fail proof foundation because I got suckered into empty promises of BB creams. I'm not saying the one's I've tried (korean brands etc) are bad...they just didn't suit my skin's needs at the time. Even now that my skin is loads better I still don't particularly care to use BB creams since my foundation gives me the coverage and results that I want anyway. PLUS BB creams are more or less the same price as foundations.
 
And argg, it still makes my eye twitch in annoyance just thinking about how I actually was foolish enough to invest in the Michael Todd's True Organics skincare line. Read my review on that here. Investing in the regimen was a much better choice since I actually saw RESULTS from other people. I was subbed to a few people who posted up their progress on the regimen so at least that skincare line has evidence of success. 
 
At least if you're going to stray away from your normal items make sure to do the proper research before investing in newer products. Sometimes I find myself bored of using the same products but I know where I can be more adventurous with purchases, I won't alter my skincare routine. I'll just pick up a new lipstick if I need some change in my life. 
 
What was the point of this whole post anyway? It's uncommon for me to deviate from my usual everyday essentials so having monthly favorites are a bit silly for me. Unless something is freaking fantastic then you guys probably won't hear a peep out of me.  Anyway, I'll end this post with a picture of my friend's cat! HI HONEY IF YOU'RE READING THIS POST~
