A: I have been makeup shopping like a crazy person. I got hold of a Sephora code and bought the Urban Decay foundation brush all the kids are raving about and finally got the Naked 2 palette. My justification: I realized one of the eye shadows I've been using is easily seven years old.
M: Girl, you need new eye shadow! I forgot I had a gift card and just bought some stuff too.
A: Yay! I just looked at all my makeup and got so grossed out. I'm going to be throwing away a lot of shit. I'm just sad that Sephora wouldn't let me use the discount code and the fancy sample bag code. Jerks.
M: Sephora is code stingy. I got the fancy sample bag.
A: Ooh, which one?
M: The Classic.
A: That's the one I would've chosen. Good stuff.
M: I think so! I like samples.
A: I'm a sample whore.
M: I like them in theory and then rarely use them. I guess that's why I haven't gotten on board with Birchbox.
A: It's a questionable use of $10, but the last one I got was pretty good and I have used everything except the nail polish. I should probably give it to you.
M: You know I love nail polish.
A: I only love it when someone does it for me and so far nobody has shown up at my door and offered to put this polish on my nails. Total bullshit.
M: That is total BS. I got a shellac manicure before Disney and it's still going strong but I kind of want it gone now please. I need to buy the special polish remover.
A: I need a manicure but I'm so hard on on nails that it's not worth spending the money. They get so sad in the winter. All breaky and ragged.
M: I have to say, this shellac business is insane. I mean, it lasts forever. Almost 2 weeks and no chips, but the regrowth is bugging me. And I love that it dries instantly.
A: That is crazy! Is is hard on your nails? I kind of hate the way polish feels.
M: Well, if you don't remove it right, it's terrible on your nails. Last time I did it I peeled it off like an idiot and I had to grow out the damage. I think if you use the right polish remover it's fine. I hope! I could see it being really good if you have thins, brittle nails, because it's pretty thick. It takes getting used to but it really does look nice.
A: Nail polish makes my fingers feel heavy.
M: Delicate flower.
A: It just feels weird! And I'm lazy.
M: I hear that. BTW, I'm wearing that Fig Jam lip butter in the post today, the one I worried was too brown? I really like it. I'll do a drugstore makeup post this week.
A: Yeah, you look awesome in that photo! All glowy. I got a Pacifica lip tint hoping it would replace the Fresh Sugar stuff and no. The tube is really big, like, over-sized Lipsmackers big? I do not need to apply liptint to my entire face area, Pacifica.
|I am huge.|
M: Ha! I am picturing you with crazy lady lipstick. Pretttty laaaaady. Claire gave me some Bobbi under eye concealer and spot concealer and I have to say it's awesome.
A: Dammit Marianne.
M: The concealer is the Face Touch Up Stick and I think it might be magical? It matches my skin so perfectly that I have trouble seeing where it is, that's how well it covers zits and red spots.
|I am awesome.|
M: I'M SORRY. You aren't going to like this any better, the corrector? You layer it under the creamy concealer? And then dust with loose powder? And Adrien. PEOPLE ARE TELLING ME I LOOK GLOWY. AND RESTED. Neither of which is frankly true.
A: Actually, I've done the BB corrector/concealer and it looked really good, but creased on me. They all do.
M: Yeah, I have to touch it up mid-day. I don't think there exists in the world a concealer that actually works and doesn't crease. It's like either/or.
A: Oh, it creases on me in five minutes, but again, they all do. I actually have to pat down the creases before I leave the house. Sometimes I wait until I'm in the car. I'm weeping now.
M: No! Don't cry! Don't cry pretty lady. Just smear more lip goop all around your lips. There. Muuuch better.
M: Really, it's a great look for you.
A: I hate you.
M: Shhhhhh. So pretty.
A: I'm leaving now.
M: Don't forget your lipstick! Byeeee!
