Hey… didn’t I just complain yesterday? ;)
Here’s a chance to say what’s on your mind… in letter form… for a weekly carnival hosted by a teacher… and I’m getting nervous about my
grammer grammur grammar… and the sorely overused leading punctuation… and the abandoned phrases starting with “and”…
Eh, I’m just gonna wing it – head over to Julie at Foursons for more Letters of Intent fun!
Dear Makeup Companies ~
I’m starting to have a bit of an issue with the whole “truth in advertising” thing.
You know, where you tell me something will make me look dewy fresh, free of wrinkles and imperfections, perfectly moisturized and protected from UV rays… and I spend another $12 in stubborn hope that maybe, just maybe, this time you might be right?
Lets start with the “imperfections”. Yeah, this PCOS gives me the double delight of zits and wrinkles at the same time. Ever tried those skin clearing brands? When you say they might cause slight irritation, it means that my skin will be clear because fourteen layers have been scrubbed off. And somehow my nose and forehead are still gonna shine.
And when you say it might lighten dark fabrics… just be aware that every single item of clothing I own now has a weird pinkish tint around the neckline. And every face towel has weird pink streaks.
So lets get to covering those “imperfections”.
I admit it – I finally bought into the hype and was intrigued enough to try this:
Yep, you read that right… “Smart Shade”. I figured it would let me pretend to have flawless skin for a few hours.
And somehow, your oh-so-smart technology figured that my light/medium skin should look like this:
Only – go ahead and add the zits back in, because it didn’t bother covering ‘em. Yippee.
And what’s up with making the world’s best mascara in a color like NAVY?
I mean, who wears it? I can tell you who gets confused and throws a tube of it in my bag when I’ve asked for black though. So… you could avoid the confusion by just making Black and Brown-Black. You’re welcome.
And lastly… I finally found a new lipstick color I love! It’s the perfect shimmery shade and I’m gonna buy them all up! Check out my lovely shiny #89!
Oh wait… is it my lovely shiny #68?
Oh seriously… it’s not like you guys need to make it any tougher on a make-up impaired person like me?!?!
So next I’d like to
complain whine strategize about the latest…
Like right now…
Shoot, I only set it down for a minute!
Mr. Daddy doesn’t need to know about this, m-kay???
