Last week I had a Junior League event on the east side of the city. I will not complain to you that it took me over 2 hours to get there because of a massive snow storm. Nope. I'll just skip right over that part.
Anyway, it was a Chanel event I was co-chairing so I had to go. I'm not much of a fancy makeup kind of girl. I don't even know what half those products are or what they do. Maybe someday I'll find out. When I'm old and rich and able to shop for my makeup at Saks instead of Walmart.
So the ladies are all up in my face asking me about my routine and if I have any questions. I actually do have trouble matching the particular powder I use to my skin tone as I always seem to get these lines around my chin that do not blend in. So our conversation proceeds as follows:
Saleswoman: "Do you have any questions?"
Me: "Well, I use a powder as my base and I am having a hard time finding a color that really matches my skin tone."
Saleswoman: "When you say you use powder, do you use Bare Minerals?"
Me: "Um, no. I use Cover Girl."
She should've known right then and there I was not going to buy anything. I mean, the lowest priced lotion they carried was $75. Clearly I was out of my league. I get pissed because my powder is $7. But honestly, she was super sweet and found me a beautiful color that matched really well.
I didn't buy it. But I looked good leaving the store!
