  1.  You can’t go to the mall without checking out what’s new at MAC stores (or Inglot, or BlackUp etc. you can NEVER walk past a cosmetics store without picking up something or ‘just checking out whats new’.

  2.  Every time you see a makeup tutorial on social media you stop to watch (like over and over!) Sometimes you catch yourself smiling at the perfection of the makeup products on the muse and that makes you happy (and the world suddenly a better…pretty place)

  3.  You have different snapshots of makeup on your phone, hoping to try out the looks ‘one day’ but till now you haven’t and won’t delete them off your phone.

  4.  Your collection of lipstick is ‘sick’. You have loads of lipstick (brands) that you’ve never even tried and you never give them away (even the ones you don’t like)

  5.  You have makeup products/even from brands that are of no good. Because you’re obsessed with makeup you buy any product any where you see them

  6.  Your makeup space is lit - because you have a lot of space dedicated to these- makes you smile every time you look over at the area (a worthy investment too, no?)

  7.  You look at colorful markers and wonder if they’ll make great lip colours (Infact you’ve tried using one or two markers as lip colors before and they turned out not bad)

If these resonates with you or makes you smile, then yass girl, you’re obsessed!
