Wanderlust is a universal feeling that is a longing for something. We see new products that we like the look or concept of, we know they aren’t for us, and still, we consider them anyway. Sometimes we go so far as to buy them, despite having something similar or knowing we won’t use them.
The wanderlust list is my way of enjoying and using items I already own. I hope to encourage myself and others to use some of the products we have rather than being so quick to buy something new. Opting out of new releases can be challenging for a blogger. I mentioned previously that the analytics tell me new releases are what people want. I could continue to cater to that crowd, but I’m personally burned out from new purchases and want to get back to using my favorites.
Disclaimer: As a beauty blogger, I have more makeup than a “regular” consumer. That does mean that I have more options to choose from when I’m opting out of a new purchase, but hopefully, the thought process can still help.
I have had my eye on the Natasha Denona Bronze Palette since its release. I enjoy the color combinations that Natasha Denona comes up with, but overall I just knew I had colors that could create a similar vibe.
I want to be clear that this is not about dupes or having the same formulas. It’s about being inspired by a product and recreating that idea or feeling with the products we already have. The idea is to get you thinking about the fact that you may have options that mimic or remind you of a new item.
