A Pox On Made Up Colors!

Remember that one time I talked about wearing make-up every day? Well, in an effort to follow through with that thing that I refuse to call a resolution, I went to the store to get some new eye-liner. That's right folks. Now that I'm 23 I've started to wear eye-liner on an almost-daily basis. 

Anyhow, all I wanted was brown. Plain, basic brown. But was there any to be found? NO! I saw plenty of basic black, but that was the only "color" I recognized. What colors were there? Taupe; ew. Onyx; what's that? Sparkle khaki; on my eyes?! Espresso; I think that's against my religion. Minx; um...I don't want fur, I want eye-liner! Bother.

Are you hearing me, make-up companies of the world? Of course you are, cuz you have nothing better to do than read my blog. So hear this; I want BROWN! Maybe I'm born with it, maybe it's BROWN. Because I'm worth it (and the "it" is BROWN). Easy, Breezy, Beautiful, BROWN! Are we getting the point?

And while I'm in the mood to yell at companies cuz they're lame; Target. You REALLY need to keep people from using make-up before they buy it. Nobody wants to buy lipstick that has blue lint on it and is completely misshapen. Ew.

Okay, you totally crack me up, but only because I can totally relate! I figured out that onyx is the one I really want. Good luck!

Hum, maybe you should give up this RESOLUTION! I mean, I miss the old Barb who could get up at 6:53 and be pounding on my door that we were leaving by 7:00. I just reminded about that day and we both had a quick early morning laugh about it. I actually think that he asked them to deliver 2 king sized Symphony (sp) bars to Windsor Park.

Add Walmart to the "protect your unsold make-up" list too. =) Try Rite-Aid... more expensive but supposedly they have a money back guarantee if you buy the wrong color and it doesn't work for you.

Barb! This is your calling! You totally need to get into advertising. Then you can choose the color names and the jingles/sayings/mottos/quotes whatever those things are called. I love that you not only know each of the different make-up sayings but that you so cleverly changed them.
