I have immersed myself into the beauty blogging world for a few months now and it’s interesting to realise that beauty bloggers have coined terms such as “holy grail” (describing a must-have product) and “MLBB” (my lips but better to describe a lip product). Today I am going to introduce the word “lemming” into The Best Beauty Blog.
From the Urban Dictionary :
A lemming refers to a purchase/wished-for-item which results from reading an enthusiastic post about a new fabulous product. Overcome by compulsion, readers follow like lemmings diving off a cliff.
I am not exactly sure how to use this term, so please excuse me if I fail badly. I mean, is it “lemming for” or “lemming after” or “lemming on” or is “lemming” a noun?? I digress…
I am lemming Chanel Mimosa. I love the colour yellow – hence my yellow VW Polo car (which is sitting unloved in my parents house…in Scotland!) – but I don’t really suit the colour yellow because I have a yellow-y skintone.
Anyway, I have 2 yellow nail polishes in my collection – Nicole by OPI Yellow It’s Me and FACE OF AUSTRALIA Luxe Lemon Sorbet – (both yellow nail polishes were provided by PRs). Don’t they look simply fabulous in their bottles!
But I don’t even look good with yellow nail polish…so why am I lemming after Chanel Mimosa?? I want something which clearly will not suit me but I want it just because. Is there a term to describe my condition??
Do you have a lemming for something?
