Ever test a perfume at a store and later wish you hadn’t? Sometimes what smelled so nice on those little testers turns weird on my skin. Or it smells good, but it’s too loud. Or I’m around someone who can’t tolerate fragrance. Or I just want to switch perfumes, but I’m stuck with the one I put on. Washing my wrists with soap doesn’t help – at least not in every case. Sometimes alcohol will take it off, but not always.
I have a few eyebrow hairs that love to go in all different directions throughout the day. I’ve tried brushing a clear mascara on them, but that didn’t control them. I’ve tried hair gel, too, but they just laughed at that. I found a Prestige brow gel that worked okay, but there were two problems: it was the color gel that actually locked the brow hairs in place and that gel was hard to get a natural look with, and after maybe a month it started smelling funny so I felt I had to toss it – who knew what bacterial infestation might be brewing in there.
The common belief seems to be that cheap makeup is chalky, lacks pigmentation and gives you loads of fallout, and these things just don’t happen with higher end makeup. The truth is: it’s not nearly that simple.
