makeup counter woes
just like check-out queues, i have the worst luck with makeup counters too. somehow i always get some gum-chewing sloppy girl throwing about her makeup brushes and trying to sell me shiny foundation 2 shades too dark for my skin. and for some reason i put up with it. today i had an appointment with chanel to get my makeup done. really, my motive was to learn how to do a smokey eye. hah. that was not going to happen today. today i was the recipient of chanel's new fall makeup line loaded in the makeup gun and set to 'whore'. i asked for 'subtle smokey eye' and i got some gold explosion mixed with soot encrusted on my eyelid, porn star mega glossy lip encircling my natural lip line, and super shiny foundation face. i was not exactly pleased. though i'm sure it wasn't as bad as if i had walked out of m.a.c. post artist attack, i still felt a wee bit overdone and cakey-eyed. i'm just not used to that much makeup, especially eyeshadow. i ended up getting the '93 smokey eyes' palette instead of the new 'reflets d'ombre' one that my attacker used, but i'm debating on whether or not i'm actually going to keep it.
