POLL – Do you go to the makeup counter knowing what you want or looking for suggestions?

29 Jul

Since we live so far away from the makeup wonderlands, we usually have long wish lists when we make the journey to our Mecca. We know what items we want to look at, and we’re ready to swatch them to see if they’re right for us.

However, sometimes we’ll decide, hey I need a gray eyeliner. Crap, what gray eyeliner do I want? For example, today Pants went to Sephora with her mom and was looking for that gray eyeliner. That’s all she wanted, all she needed (despite seeing 800 other things she would have happily taken home). She swatched and swatched and swatched, and finally found the perfect gray!

The Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Triggerfish!

But guess what? That shitz was sold out. So Pants decided to go to Macy’s because she knew they carried some Stila items, but this was a new color and Macy’s didn’t have it. So one of the girls working in the cosmetics section shows Pants about eight different gray eyeliners.

Coming in a close second place was Urban Decay’s 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Revolver. It was a metallic charcoal gray with lots of glitter. It was really pretty, but not really an everyday gray like she was looking for. These liners are similar to Stila’s Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, but with more glitter, but in smaller pieces.

Pants ended up picking up Too Faced’s Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eye Liner in Perfect Storm. It was pretty darn close to the Stila liner, a dark charcoal gray with a hint of sparkle.

ANYWAY, we want to know:
