But really, I felt the need to go and accomplish something. I was out of Clinique soap plus needed to deliver a long-overdue Pampered Chef order to a friend (my party was at the end of October - sorry again & again, Nicole!) and she lives by the mall so I figured I'd burst in there, grab the goods then get the hell out of Dodge. I parked at Nordstrom because I was getting my soap there and somehow it just feels better entering the
(I really have issues with this place).
Well, if you give a mom a minute...I figured I should pick up a new eyeliner while I was at the Clinique counter because I've found it really is worth the ridiculous cost. I tried to be thrifty and use the .97 kind at Target last week and nearly scratched the skin from my eyelids. So I told the darling young Hali I also needed the "cream shaper for eyes" in a chocolatey brown. Being a trained salesgirl, she first picked up a darker color, marked on her hand and pronounced it "Dark, but has a really pretty green undertone" before swiping a lighter shimmery honey color. Frowning, "No, too light." Being a trained (but recovering, slowly) shopaholic, I nodded and smiled until she found the Chocolate Lustre I wanted. However, Hali was paying attention and had noticed my slight interest in the darker Egyptian liner; she sweetly asked if I always use the brown? Because this one would realllly bring out your eyes...Would you like me to put some on you? Suddenly, I am six and YES! I want you to put makeup on me! Clapping and bouncing!
I bought the Chocolate Lustre and the Egyptian. But I was able to resist the shimmery base and eye shadow duo! (This time).
