I figured I should share this little story with you beauties:
Today I returned some foundation to Wal Mart that was the wrong color- it was Rimmel 25 Hour Lasting Finish in 200 Soft Beige- it was too dark.
The lady at the Customer Service desk asked me if anything was wrong with it, and I said, "No, nothing is wrong with the product, it's just too dark." (Which wasn't completely the truth, I ended up really not likely that foundation, but it was a shade too dark.)
She replied with, "You know what's good? Neutrogena Skin Clearing makeup. It's really expensive, but it's really good."
At this point, I hadn't looked up at her face much, but after she mentioned her opinion of a good foundation, I glanced at her face.
This lady had a very pale, and very red, splotchy face, absolutely covered in acne.
She wasn't wearing any makeup either.
I hated to be mean, but after we walked away, I turned to my boyfriend and said something about how the makeup obviously doesn't work that well.
If she was wearing any makeup, I might have considered looking into that foundation, but a splotchy face covered in acne, and not wearing any makeup, isn't going to convince me to buy skin clearing makeup- or any make at all.
Am I too used to seeing flawless faces sell me makeup in all of the ads?
Would you take makeup advice from someone who isn't wearing any makeup at all?
I usually determine how seriously I should take someone's make up advice on how their makeup looks at the time- is that wrong?
I just couldn't take her recommendation seriously, but I did want to give her a make over.
Oh makeup community, what I am rambling about?!
Have a good night, makeup lovers!
P.S. I looked for NYC's cream blush sticks at Kmart and Wal Mart today and couldn't find them!
