Guess it’s time.

October 11, 2007

Journal, Lauren

Time for new makeup. I’ve actually been meaning to post about my blush for some time, because I think it’s funny that I’ve owned the same blush for 13 years. (That’s as old as Lloyd’s students.)  Not the same color – the same container. I got it when Todd and Kathryn Peperkorn got married ‘way back in 94. The bridesmaids went to some fancy place for makeovers, and I bought the blush. I’m not very good at putting on makeup, so I usually go without. (I also have a theory about putting colored dirt on your face, but that’s for another day.) Anyway, I’ve been slapping a little blush on in the mornings lately, and today I was in too big of a rush and dropped it. I hope they still sell ‘Fig’ at the Clinique counter.

Bye bye blushie.

    I get my forehead de-shinifier lotion at the Clinique counter. It’s kind of intimidating. The fancy ladies in white coats make me kind of skittish.

      I can understand why people in “white coats” make you nervous … but relax, I don’t think they use nets anymore …

    And Lauren … some of us are pigment challenged … we have to use colored dirt or the pale, lifeless, a vampire just drank my blood, appearance would scare the masses.


    • Beth Said on:

      Yea…and if we don’t have brunette eyelashes and eyebrows we look, well, pale and lifeless, just like Peggy said.
      Not to mention, some of us, without make-up look shockingly like our oldest brother and while he’s a handsome man, he doesn’t make a very lovely woman.

    Ya’ reckon you’re older than dirt?


  4. Deanne Said on:

    I’m with you… anymore, I only wear lipstick & some powder, and I just don’t worry about the pale & lifeless part.

    Enjoy your blush! Oh, and don’t worry if they still have fig. You can use it broken for another 13 years!

    I find it simply AMAZING that you can drop or spill or knock over something and the very first thing that enters your mind is, “Where’s my camera?”!!
