as a kid, i didnt play dress up with mommy's makeup. she didnt teach me how to wear eye liner or shadow or anything like that. she taught me things like perseverance, self respect, and how to be friendly but a hardass.. but that's beside the point. she also has pricey hypoallergenic makeup that i cant afford. i generally prefer revlon. fortunately the internet has taught me all about makeup, and this one time i read a blog post by the lovely laura about makeup.
laura posted about eyeshadow primer and answered a question i posed regarding .... wtf is eye shadow primer??? welp we asian ladies have a genetic trait resulting in a different type of eyelid than white people. while it may have developed as an evolutionary benefit long ago.. it is a all consuming bitch to eye makeup. eye shadow is eaten up by my eyelids and all but dissolves within hours. eyeliner [which ive worn every day since the beginning of college in an attempt not to look 14] sloughs off in sheets of disappointment.
enter the world of shadow primer. i bought the brand laura recommended and thought jesus h christ. not even half an ounce for $13+?? what fresh hell is this?
srsly. it weighs a 50th of the cost of a freakin first class letter. that shit costs $.48 to mail. i think.
