    ​​​​​I think they're overpriced but now I'm just thinking that's how it is and will continue to be.

    I've never bought anything for Eid so this year I thought maybe I'll buy an abaya because I need going out clothes which I don't have other than this old shirt dress.

    After seeing the prices and the designs, they don't match and I changed my mind. Maybe I'm too fussy.

    I'm better off buying a salwaar kameez but can't and don't want to wear that out. It's not practical.

    Just saw the Mac Eid collection, they're trying to commercialise that now.
    Theyre definitely overpriced. If you dont want to buy an abaya then what you can do is buy a kimono and wear it over your salwar kameez when you need to go outside.

    Aabs was a pure rip off. They abayas werent even all that nice and they were all so pricey, you're better purchsing one from etsy lol.

    Mac makeup is so bad for my skin, i remember trying it out years ago and it dried out my skin and their eye makeup isnt ideal for people with sensitive skin.

    I think I'd have to buy real gold if I want something my size
    the imitation ones are still big

    The ones I have are not wearable anymore and I don't want to buy any from Claire's

    I'm not interested in real gold or silver at the moment

    I've treated myself to new nail polish

    Both are childish colour, they looked different online

    Doesn't suit my complexion but I still like it, I haven't actually worn it yet

    One is a very purple 💜 glittery and another is called mauve - more barbie pink than mauve

    I find red nail polish harder to apply, it's trickier to keep it tidier and stains so much if it gets on the skin
    A nice colour for all skin tones

    ​​​​​​Sometimes I think they do this deliberately so that people have to compromise on modesty, there is always something wrong with it

    True.. Like if you see a blouse from shein, it appears nice to wear over some loose pants. But when you click for more angles in there, it shows a revealing back

    Did you find the lipstick with the nostalgic smell?

    I was looking through my make up (need to organise my stuff) and had a little sniff of my lipstick and it still has that smell.

    One of my Revlon liquid lipstick has gone off a bit even though I only used a very few times, maybe four, I've had it for four years and only opened it last year. Used to smell great.
    Not sure about lipstick smells . I use lip balm mainly. I have a lot of makeup that must be years out of date, I don't use them. Should throw out but they look OK. I once found a palette that was 10 years out of date, had tiny insects running amok

    Good idea thanks, I'm always fussy with how they look, hopefully I'll find something
    I originally thought about those soft cushions to stack needles, not sure what they're called but was planning on getting those for my hijab pins then I thoought I could just stick my studs on it too but nah looks ugly

    I find the small jewellery boxes a bit too big, I like the glass ones

    I wonder if there's anything specifically made for storing studs
    I lose so many
