I went to the Lancome counter earlier this week because I wanted to see if they had the Summer 2015 Collection. Needless to say I won’t rest until I own all three of those new squishy Blush Subtil Crèmes. I lose sleep at night not knowing they aren’t safely tucked into my beauty vault.
Anyway, they are available online already but I wanted to get a little feel for them so I decided to venture to my local counter to check them out. Now I texted ahead of time to make sure Danny, my normal sales rep, would be there. I stupidly didn’t ask him if Summer was available at the time.
I should have but I was rushed and I just randomly texted him and was like, “Hey, I wanna stop in will you be around later?’ I got a quick yes and I proceeded to start my day with the plans to make all those blushes mine later.
Late that day I got a text from my rep saying he had to leave for personal reasons. Damn, not cool but I decided to go anyway.
I’m a mush.
So, of course, I get there and they don’t have Summer 2015 and they don’t have the blushes but I get canoodled into trying a sample of Lancôme Grandiôse Wide-Angle Fan Effect Mascara. Because, like I said, I’m a mush and I don’t know how to say no to aggressive counter people. That’s why I like sticking and dealing with the same people at counters because I find ones I’m comfortable with and don’t venture far from them.
None the less I walked out with mascara I didn’t want.
I will say this…the sample she tried on me looked freaking amazing.
But she kept telling me, “Look down when you apply!”
Look down? So I attempted this all week with Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara. Can I tell you looking down and applying mascara must take a rocket scientist degree because the first time I tried it I made a complete mess to the point I had to remove all my eye makeup and start over. The second time I tried it I literally poked my eye with the wand. And the third time I tried it I succeeded but ended up with shorter not so full lashes.
And her voice just kept repeating in my head after all this, “Look down when you apply your mascara!”
Ah yeah but no…
Not working for me.
Do you LOOK DOWN when applying your mascara?
What’s your technique?
I typically widen my eye, wriggle the brush under my upper water line a little bit, and push up, stroking the brush through my complete lash line as I go.
