..on a Frugal Friday Post.
I talked a little last Friday about our old friend emotional buying. The attraction of the feel good factor of taking something new home to feel better about yourself or a situation you are in.
I'm sure we all do it.
To Hubby - "What this old thing? It's been in the wardrobe for ages my love?" When really I'd snaffled it in amongst the Tesco shop a few days ago and hid it at the back of the wardrobe.
So how do I explain away a lovely little Chanel carrier bag when returning from town.
Well, here is the story.
needed wanted to try the bare minerals veil having read Jennys review from Beauty and the Biryani. I headed off to our local Debenhams store and to the counter to talk to the lady about the best one to get. The products looked inviting and utterly gorgeous as expected, but all I wanted was this one product. The lady approached me and I explained what I wanted. Her response was
"Have you 15 minutes?"
Of course I didn't. So she said
"Well we will need to match you for foundation as well and you will need to take a starter kit ( £50) with the proper brush. No other brush will pick up the minerals properly."
Her manner was so aggressive with me and so pushy I could have easily gone along this route and found I had spend well over £50 on products I actually didn't want. She made me feel so deflated as I had so looked forward to getting this product. So I was firm and said,
" Well if thats the case I'd better look at a different product" and walked off.
The nearest counter (that just happens to be in full view of this lady) was the Chanel counter with a delightful and non pushy assistant.
What's a girl to do when her emotions are in full flight?
This product is just gorgeous. So, so light , almost translucent on the skin. Not at all like old style face powders. A great finishing product that goes on beautifully with my Real Techinques brush.
Yes I spent twice what I meant to, but I will get daily enjoyment out of this.........
So, lady at the Chanel Counter - Thank you.
And here's to Occasional Emotional Buying.
Yes I did feel better after buying it.
