So it was an eventful weekend, as one can probably ascertain from the glut of mobile uploads on my Facebook. Katsu and I booze cruised the night away, brunched in style, took our Rock Band addiction to brave new levels, and, like most of the rest of America, saw The Dark Knight.
I have a lot of feelings on all of the above, but let’s put them aside for a moment, because there’s something more important that needs discussing.
Did anyone else get the latest Sephora email newsletter? The one advertising, of all things, PRESS-ON EYESHADOW???
Is this what we’ve come to? The level to which we’ve sunk? I want to know what woman out there is a subscriber to the Sephora newsletter but can’t manage to dust her own lids with a little brown and gray. I mean, the zebra print is hideous, but at least the “jungle effect” is kind of an 8 on the richter scale of makeup difficulty. Contrast that to the other offerings in the ColorOn collection: the Smokey Kit, the Tropics Kit, and, of course, the Flaunt Kit, all of which are relatively basic takes on your average eye shading technique. I can’t imagine that adhering appliques to one’s face is substantially less difficult than wielding a shadow brush and some pressed powder, although the consequences of unwise placement, with this new “innovation”, could be far more dire.
This is not rocket science, people – it’s makeup. And for the record, whoever buys the Exotic Kit should probably have their estrogen license revoked.
