You Can Get With This or You Can Get With That

. . .

Or you can get with this, yeah, cuz this is where it's at.

Damn, I loved that song, by the Black Sheep. It made me bust into moves I didn't even know I had at countless Sweet 16's in the early nineties.

I was such a badass. But I was a badass who was also very good at the Running Man.


The Winey Mommy

Chelle from the Winey Mommy has started a meme called "This or That." The question is:

Do you buy your makeup at a discount/drugstore or some type of specialty makeup store?

My response? I am 100% schizo when it comes to this and I am ALL over the place. I don't care if I am at a CVS, a Nordstrom, Sephora or heck - the grocery store.

The magnetic pull of sheer pinks and the promise that i could have Jessica Alba's lips if only I could find that RIGHT lipstick makes me buy exactly what they are selling me.

Which is a goddamn load of crap, apparently.

screw that.

I look the same whichever I wear. I am better off just making my own oatmeal scrub at home or something like that.

If you want to play - go on over to Chelle's link.

XOXO,
Kiran

Ha! I'm a make up ho...I'll get it anywhere I can.
Hey, I was master of the Running Man. Oh yeah...

Well, this was wicked fuN!! I buy all my goods at Target. I know I should be more environmentally conscious and all that but the truth is, I'm a Cover Girl from way back and am having a hard time giving up the habit. I use Suave too. I should just hand in my Fashionista Membership card tonight.

During my 3 HOUR FACIAL (thought I'd highlight that fact) the therapist asked 'what do you use on your skin?', to which I replied 'nothing'. She said everything you need for awesome skin is in your kitchen. Scrub with sorbelene mixed with salt. Mask with sorbelene mixed with honey and lemon. Take A,C and E vitamins.

Karls said...

When it comes to make up though... it's Napoleon Perdis all the way!

Theta Mom said...

I have such sensitive skin, so the majority of my make-up is Clinique. But, I do love some cheapo drug-store stuff that I can get away with!

KLZ said...

Why are Jessica Alba's lips always selling me make-up? The jealousy I have over them is embarrassing.

Melinda said...

I'm so with you! I buy cheap and I buy expensive and I still just always look 40! What's up with that??

AJ said...

This is great! I think I may participate today! :)

Amy said...

HA! I am the EXACT.SAME.WAY.

The make up industry has sucked me in to thinking I can look like Halle or one of those gorgeous Jessicas (Alba, Simpson, Biel..)

DAMN YOU MAKE UP PEOPLE!!!

Mrs Montoya said...

I am with ya on buying it anywhere and everywhere!! I could spend hours and hundreds of dollars in Sephora just staring and wishing, but always leave with lip gloss!! I've blown TOO MUCH money on pricey stuff and I always look the same. Maybe if I'd just buy the $200 brushes to go with my Walgreens blush . . .

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

Good grief, isn't this the truth? Though I have to say, nothing compares to MAC lipgloss. It's so much thicker and stays on longer and is just... MAC. Love it.

Doesn't mean you wont find me all up in some lipglosses bidness at the drugstore.

Salt said...

I have about 8 tubes of almost the same color lip gloss in my bag right now. But yet, I can't seem to walk in any store without leaving with a new one.

In other words, I feel your pain.

i have a slight addiction when it comes to all beauty products.. i'm super obsessed with hair products which i get from combo drugstore and specialty store (like a beauty supply store), as for makeup and fragrance i buy the majority from department stores.. i love Sephora, beauty.com..

also, black sheep.. umm, many bad moments as well :-)

Sarah said...

I buy all my makeup at Sephora and spend way too much money. I can't help myself, though! I'm a total makeup junkie.

Kiera said...

haha im the same way. and i always look the same.

SaraPlaysHouse.com said...

I really love Bare Minerals alot. The end.
Mike calls my apricot scrub "dirt soap". And I've always wondered what would happen if I used ACTUAL dirt to scrub my face. If I ever experiment, I will document for your pleasure.

Lemon Gloria said...

I've been considering making my own face scrub, actually. But I don't know anyone who has done it and liked it.

And I see our New Year's resolution has gone all to hell?

Candice said...

Love Black Sheep!

I also heard another old school song that brought me way back.

"I wish I was a little bit taller. I wish I was a baller. I wish I had a girl that looked good, I would call her...."

So who was it????

MommyLovesStilettos said...

You have an award over at my blog :)

Sara said...

I am brand loyal, which means I get my Covergirl mascara wherever it's cheap.

Sadly, that usually means Walmart.

On the flip, my haircare stuff is Aveda. I have high maintenance, stuck-up hair, so that crap comes from the salon.

Wow, I feel dirty having written that.

my only make-up is an eyelash curler, eyeliner and sometimes lipstick.

i researched eyelash curlers and many people said Shu Uemura was the best. so i spent around $25 and ordered it. it's okay, but i don't think it's much better than the $5 Covergirl brand.

Ruby said...

ehhh the hubs the one that buys mine lol i know go figure hes pretty good which makes me think he may be a little.... noo can't be lol but heck hes the one that tells me to not wear n e "you look great with out that stuff" confusing but his words

jessalyn said...

yeah i love it all. el-cheapo or muy expensive. the worst part is, i only wear it like once a month. it's silly really.

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

I am so cheap when it comes to make-up. I think because I haven't found the right shades that I'm over the moon about.. unless you count lipgloss. I have purchased the same colors for over 10 years! NO LIE. If they ever stop making these shades I might die!

That being said I'm always looking for a great new shade but always go right back to my old trusted colors. I need to SHAZAM my darn make-up kit, fo' reals!

P.S. I really, really, really love that you talked about Black Sheep's "The Choice is Yours" - LOVE THAT SONG! It was the first one I purchased when I got my first itunes gift card years ago - NEVER gets old! ox "Here they come yo, here they come!"
