Are You A Beauty Addict?
You're what we call BAIT: Beauty Addict in Training. There's one thing you should know: Tinted moisturizer is the gateway product.
You're a blossoming beauty addict. Yes, you love your products and you go to Sephora quite often, but it's not like you're spending your rent money on argan oil moisturizers and vitamin C serums. Right? Or, um…
You are DEFINITELY a beauty addict. But is that so bad? Whereas few people find happiness, you've already discovered it. And it lies in the aisles of Sephora, the smell of creamy lipstick, and the shine on the bottles of your immaculate product collection.
