At the risk of sounding like an annoying twat, I get to try a lot of free beauty products. And yes, it's a real job!
You see, it's part of my job to keep up with all the new launches and trends in the rapidly growing (and confusing) beauty industry — and there's no better way than to try it for yourself. Because if it's something that's total poo and really not worth the hype, I'm not going to recommend it to you.
This means that my beauty routine is forever changing — and I'll often be found switching and swapping out products for new releases. And while it's a pretty fun deal, it makes it hard when you come across a product you really love. And it becomes even harder when that new product is quite spendy.
Watch: Speaking of foundation... remember that time I put 10 layers of it on my face? I do. Post continues below.
Because while you'd be forgiven for thinking beauty editors have access to endless free products and refills, we actually have to purchase the stuff we like once we're finished it. So, you know it's gotta be good.
Case in point: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, $105.
