Let’s see…one of the many soft spots in me..is for lipstick…I can just try the different colours and leave the counter without buying anything…so much for self-satisfaction but imagine the expression on the salesgirl’s face…I asked this and that and said “OK, thanks” and left…..(that's why I can never, ever sell anything...I'll throw tantrums if I were her!!!!)
Last week, I went to the Shiseido counter at Jusco Permas Jaya with my friends during lunch time and really love the new Perfect Rouge Lipstick. It’s really smooth and…since I was itching for something different from what I have, I chose a bright pink colour and actually bought one!
Then came the real nightmare (besides the eye popping price tag)…I tried it at home and realized that I’ve bought the wrong colour! It’s red! Really bright, striking red! What do I do now? (You know the feeling, right?)
Too lazy to go back and change, I decided to keep it. A friend of mine saved my life by giving me this very useful tip – wear it with a lighter colour lipstick! Luckily, I have this unused EL lipstick – it’s light, almost nude pink…And it worked…Phewwwwwwwwwwww!!
So, ladies next time you go shopping, make sure you take home the right size (for clothes) and colour (cosmetics)...Don't underestimate the frustration of bringing home the wrong ones because....you won't be able to get it out of your mind for the rest of the day...(believe me!)
