Hilarious. And so true. . .
A random digression…
I can’t STAND group texts…especially when the other names don’t come up. You know what that means? It means that I have NO IDEA who the other recipients are.
I don’t give my number out on purpose – people ask, and I respond by asking for theirs. (So I can never call.) So I’d rather NOT have YOU give it out on my (non-consenting) behalf.
And what about the annoying barrage of “who’s this?” or “who else is on here?”s?
The kicker, though…? The bajillion, text replies that follow, sending my phone into a flurry of continuous, randomized convulsions. I feel like a hostage crisis might be less irksome – I could just tell you to your face to leave me alone (or not respond all together and be singled out as the crazy, silent one in the bunch.)
May I just say… A R G !
Smashbox has come out with a whole bunch of new products recently. I don’t own the Photo Filter Powder Foundation but, in light of my recent Deciem post, this totally goes along with the whole companies-capitalizing-on-the-rise-o’-social-media thing!
Its promises are somewhat lofty, in the sense that it claims to act as a real-life phone photo filter, and it lasts all day – oh, the promise of being Instagramed for all to see in person! (Is that comforting personally, but frightening when thinking of the masses?) Still, I have to say that the 24 Hour CC Spot Concealer is UH-MAZING. I am incredibly active – gym, martial arts, for two – this stuff STAYS ON. It’s phenomenal.
SO, going by the 24 Hour CC Spot Concealer, it’s possible Smashbox has another hit with this. I love that the Photo Filter Powder is not the “usual chalky” but that it manages to blur imperfections in a translucent veil, with true color pigment coming through at the same time. There appears to be a great deal of science and technology involved in today’s beauty scene – products are expected to be multi-taskers, at the least, and skincare, often, as well. Long-wear is always an added benefit – this says 8 hours, which feels so short in comparison to so many products on the market today…BUT, it is still a full work day.
What I loved about the Smashbox product pages is that they not only show the color squares, but also ladies of a variety of different complexions, to help a shopper understand what will work best for her. There are 10 shades in all, and they range from fair to deep, as I personally think all brands should! 🙂
.34 ounces is $42, so it isn’t a cheap buy…but since Smashbox is carried Sephora and their own stores, there is the possibility of playing around with it first. 🙂
