Among the many stipulations in Tabs’ employment contract is a rule in Section 47 that states, “There must always be at least one unopened (i.e. spare) 5-pound bag of Science Diet Optimal Care on the premises.”
So today, to ensure my continued compliance with the agreement, I zipped over to my nearby Petco…which also happens to be right next door to a Sephora.
I only popped in for minute to “look around” (please don’t tell Tabs because I was still on the clock).
It’s not easy to swatch while holding a hefty bag of cat food, but it can be done. Today the bright, sparkly tubes and pans of the new Givenchy Acid Summer collection caught my eye.
Givenchy equipped the release with 12 lipglosses, two lip stains, a lip/cheek balm and a palette with nine eyeshadows. Since Tabs is a stickler when it comes to punctuality (but not as it pertains to him), I didn’t have time to try anything on, but from what I felt, saw and swatched in the store, most of the lipglosses looked sheer, and the brights in the eyeshadow palette were a lot tamer than I expected them to be.

I like how wearable most of it looks, but I was expecting more pops of pigment in the mix.

Did you have a good afternoon? My parents and brother just left a little while ago. They stopped by for a joint birthday/Father’s Day celebration (my brother and I both had bdays this month) and brought enough food to feed an army!
Now I’m just recovering from food coma and counting down the minutes to Game of Thrones.
