Oh man! This is so true. I wanted to buy clothes today, and I ended up buying a nice eyeshadow instead, to stay within my budget. Damn!

Leading Lipstick Indicator! Who knew? I can relate to this. Lipstick is a small luxury. It's one of those things I splurge on, probably too often!

Also kinda weird but I am poor right now and I was contemplating going out and buying some lipsticks this weekend. Weird!

Ehh, darn, I picked the wrong answer. Didn't make the Lauder connecting which should have been an obvious choice.
