    18 Things All Beauty Snobs Will Understand

    Your makeup wishlist is way bigger than your paycheque.

    1. You love makeup, not just for how it makes you look, but how it makes you ~feel~.

    2. So it's very important that it makes you feel fancy af, which unfortunately means it'll probably cost a small fortune.

    3. There are certain brands you won't use because the packaging is cheap or looks grubby quickly.

    4. Or the packaging is kitsch and a bit tacky.

    5. Of course, you know that the most expensive stuff isn't necessarily the best.

    6. But you still love it.

    7. You would actually rather buy less makeup that’s of a higher quality, than lots of cheap products.

    9. You're a sucker for buying the fancy versions of regular products.

    13. You also have to regularly give yourself a stern talking-to in order to stop yourself from buying something that's definitely unnecessary.

    14. Losing your makeup bag is a genuine fear.

    15. You love cheaper dupes, but you know in your heart you'll always want to try the original thing.
