Queen of Impulse Shopping

I am crowning myself as the Queen of Impulse Shopping, not to be confused with my other titles, Countess of Clothes Shopping, Duchess of Handbag Shopping or Empress of Shoe Shopping. I think makeup has to be one of my worst shopping traps, second only to magazines.  I can spend $150 at the MAC counter in two shakes of a lamb's tail.  I can grab three OPI nail lacquers in colors similar to what I already own in a blink of the eye. Lip gloss?  Don't even get me started.  I have a makeup bag in my purse that holds nothing but lip glosses I mindlessly tossed into by bag at Sephora.  As long as I stay out of grocery stores, department stores, Target and other makeup shopping traps, I am under control.  That's why I was shocked when faced with the ultimate challenge of impulse buys at...the Dallas-Fort-Worth Airport.

I had wisely avoided DFW's various boutique shops and even stayed away from the incidentals stores.  I walked along, seemingly safe from making a frivolous purchase.  Reaching my terminal, I searched for a good seat to read my e-book.  That's when I spotted it - a PINK make up VENDING MACHINE.  And not just any make up, it was Benefit cosmetics makeup.  The best word to describe this makeup line is 'cute', although it is marketed to women, not girls.  With product names like 'Confessions of a Concealaholic', 'Dr. Feelgood' and 'They're Real' mascara, you can't help but treat yourself. 

Back to the situation at hand.  Stuck. At. The. Airport. For. Six. Hours.
Can't. Take. It. Any. Longer.
I bought the mascara and I loooooooove it!
