You know, there’s something to be said for a spouse who knows you really, really well.
We’ve been a couple for coming up on 20 years, married for almost ten. So the man knows better than to get me flowers on Valentine’s Day. Hell no, he took me to Sephora and pretty much told me to get whatever I want. The man certainly knows how to make me swoon.
I’ll have some posts up on what I bought later on, but I wanted to share a pet peeve that I was reminded of when browsing the displays at Sephora.
We can explode protons, but we cannot figure out how to truly represent the color of makeup? I’m talking specifically about those horrid plastic things on the end of lipstick testers that purportedly tell you what the color is supposed to be. Eight times out of ten though, the color looks pretty much nothing like the color representation. And a lot of the time, the lip pencil and eye pencil ones aren’t any better.
Which kind of sucks, because then you know that you can’t really discount what it looks like on the tester and you have to try it out on your hand. I still am not comfortable trying the stuff on my lips or my eyes, no matter how many times they wipe it and tell me it is perfectly sanitary.
I definitely have fun trying out colors, but it would be nice to know that the color sample I’m looking at is fairly accurate.
Is that too much to ask?
