Have you ever bought something and then as soon as you get home regret it? You're at a shop and it seems like such a good idea and soon afterwards wonder what in the world you were thinking? I usually avoid buyers regret by cutting out impulse shopping and thinking on most of my purchases - well all but one.
The other day I read a perfectly charming little post from Elsie about lipstick. She said in her blog how she overheard two fashionable older ladies chatting about their favourite lipstick, Revlon's "Love that Pink". She picked it up the next day and weeks later discovered that her grandma had the exact same shade at her home. How sweet. If three old ladies (and one very trendy blogger) approve I figure it was worth a try right? Soon after Fraser and I ended up at Zellers and I figured I could pop in the makeup section and get the lipstick. To my surprise they were sold out. It must be good if Zellers doesn't have it (don't all little old ladies shop there?)! A few days after I decided to pick up some much needed toothpaste and lip balm after work and wouldn't you know it - there it was, Revlon's "Love that Pink" lipstick. Good old London Drugs. Time to rush home and try it out in all it's pink lipped glory:
The verdict? Ack! I looked like a clown! My lips were an ungodly shade of bright pink and with the contrast of my extremely pale white skin, I was far from "loving that pink". What was I thinking? I could have bought a nice block of cheese with that $10 and instead have a once used tube of lipstick that will likely sit at the bottom of my makeup case for the next 15 years. Oh well. Live and learn right? What's the last thing you had buyers regret from?
