I'd just had the most ludicrous appointment with my consultant this morning, he was running 90 minutes late, random people just wandering in to the consulting room without even knocking, consultant answering his mobile phone TWICE during the appointment and that is not even getting started on the medical side, but I digress. I had put on a bit of makeup to look respectable and grabbed the first mascara I had to hand, YSL Faux Cils. All was well with the world. When I returned home and saw my face, it looked like I had two black eyes and that is not an exaggeration.

I know that smudging is a problem for me with this mascara, and yet because it gives me the fullest looking lashes any mascara ever has, I have repurchased it more than once. I find myself thinking that if I carry a compact around with me I can just check my eyes every 30 minutes for smudging, maybe by now they'll have done something different with the formula to prevent it or my skin will be different and smudging will not occur. Madness.
So am I the only one that is so blinded by one positive feature of a beauty product that you choose to repeatedly ignore the negatives? I suppose in some ways it is like having a favourite nail varnish that always chips within half an hour or a lipstick that is incredibly drying but is your favourite colour.
I'm hoping that this is the last time I will be drawn in to buying YSL Faux Cils again, but who knows when the next bout of temporary insanity will strike?
As a random aside, is it only me that somehow manages to always end up with the most contagious person sitting next to me in the doctor's waiting room? I have carefully tried to avoid bugs of any kind all winter and then this very loud man plonks himself down by my side telling all and sundry in the most explicit detail how he has the most horrible virus, has given it to the rest of his family and it ruined his Christmas. Meanwhile worried glances are exchanged by all the other patients whilst I wonder how long I can hold my breath! Delightful.
