10 things that'll make all makeup lovers twitch

Boots on a Saturday. WHY’D YOU DO IT.

LOVING MAKEUP IS a full time job.

Signing up means a lifetime of coveting what you don’t have, mourning lost loves, and battling through busy branches of Boots on Saturdays.

Here are ten things that’ll always wind a makeup lover up.

1. Knowing a Boots 3 for 2 deal is on, somewhere

And you’re supposed to be saving.

2. The words ‘duty free’

“Oh, are you going on holiday? Would you mind me giving you some money to get me just 11 things in the duty free?”

3. Magazines cutting up lipsticks and breaking powders for beauty shoots

4. The fact that these still come with some eyeshadow palettes

Just breathe. And breathe again. And don’t even try to get near the lipstick stand.

How dare you, mascara. I thought we were friends.

8. The price of the luxury brands

€48 for a lipstick is disgusting. You could do two rounds in the Boots 3 for 2 with that. What are you doing? Why are you giving the Tom Ford girl your Visa? Stop. STOP.

9. Hearing a new Urban Decay palette is on the way

Do I need it? Ah, it contains a neutral eyeshadow I don’t already own. I need it. *joins 8000-strong waiting list*

10. And this
