As the weather is breaking, my spirit is lifting. I am trying to get rid of the negativity in my life it and replace it with excitement. Unfortunately for you, there is NOTHING EXCITING going on right now so I am going to list for you my cosmetic pet peeves.
1. Great Lash Mascara– Maybelline must have a photograph of every beauty editor with a hooker, that is the only way I can explain how that mascara gets on every “ best-of” list. Go to every beauty board in every country and the publishing world’s love affair with this mascara will get a resounding, “ huh?!” I would have better luck with spit and coal dirt than Great Lash.
2.“ Scientific Studies”- The kind people at SK-II, a Japanese skin care company, were nice enough to sponsor a study that stated SCIENTIFICALLY a woman loses her looks at 35.9 There you are at 35.8 being all cute and then one day-poof you literally fall the *&^!apart. OMG I am 35.875- whatever am I going to do?! Oh wait, luckily for me SK-II sells these amazing creams and serums that start at $150.00.
3. For your eye color– Every mass market line out there seems to have something that is specific to your eye color. Every mass market line also forgot the theory of complementary colors. The colors below? Those colors are from Almay for BLUE EYES.
4. Pantone’s 2011 Color of the Year: Honeysuckle Pink- It looks like they went in their closet, found the ugliest bridesmaid dress they could and exclaimed “ THIS!!” It’s a yellow pink that is really hard to wear. Being a synesthetic I can tell you it tastes like polyester.
Ok, now I want to tell you about one thing I LOVE- Wet n Wild’s new Color Icon Trios. Sheila was awesome enough to send me one she found- I’m Getting Sunburned. I also found one at my local CVS-Spoiled Brat.
WOW- these little beauties are creamy, highly pigmented, blendable and wear great with a base. These eyeshadows are worth the internet-fever pitch they are causing.
Wet n Wild needs to get on the ball and get more of these out!!
So, Painted Ladies– what are you hating on this week?
