I’m a hot mess when it comes to makeup. Seriously, I think I’ve been using the same products and colors for at least five years. There is no variety in my makeup bag. I go with the taupe and purple color groups. I usually use bland taupe shadows paired with purples. I sometimes add in a little silver or gray. My blush container is cracking and falling apart. It is embarrassing.
My makeup bag was a gift with purchase from Bath & Body Works. I have some Bobbie Brown shadows, paired with random things. I should call it the “blogger’s makeup bag”. I think many of the items thrown in here were given to me, free at events. Yes, my swag makeup. Some of the colors don’t even match my skin tones or colors. How sad is that?
I recently hit up the MAC Cosmetics counter at Nordstrom for a new lipstick. I have lost all my lipsticks so I depend on Carmex and Burt’s Bees for my lips. Both of those items are clear, as in, NO COLOR. I told the salesgirl that I wanted to stay away from the bottom row of lipsticks. She laughed at me. Seriously, the entire bottom row was my usual color palette, also known as “the taupe lipstick group”. I told her that I wanted something brighter. I tried on about five colors and kept asking for something BRIGHTER. I finally found a color that I like, “Party Line”.
I took a picture of it, but our bedroom is DARK, like really dark….so bear with me.
It is great. I love how long lasting it is too. It is pretty dark, but if I blot it a little, it gets much lighter. I can totally wear it in the daytime too. Before I paid for my lipstick, the salesgirl asked me, “Is there anything else I can help you with?” I laughed and said, “Umm that is going to take a few hours. I will be back soon. I need a complete makeup makeover. I haven’t bought proper makeup or had my colors done for YEARS.”
Am I the only one with this problem?
Is there help for me?
