Some things are just made to be together, ya know, like chubby cats and costume jewelry, pink feather boas and plastic tiaras, stretchy pants and pints of ice cream (again, the whole no-dairy thing = not happening), blue mascara and naked butt cheeks…
Wait — what was that last one again?
Oh, yeah. Blue mascara and bare bottoms. 🙂 So about that, I wore the new Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effect Faux Cils Waterproof Mascara in Majorelle Blue ($30) to the Bay to Breakers yesterday, and over every inch of the 7.25-mile course and after many, many bare booty sightings, Majorelle Blue held the curl from my lash curler and refused to flake or smudge.
More importantly, the color, a bright electric blue, and the formula’s fringe-fattening powers, fit right in with all of the funny faces I made during the race. 😯
It began at the starting line…
My friend Marisol’s workout buddies asked me to take a picture of them. “Sure!” I yelled over the crowd, which was steadily growing around us.
Time was of the essence once the tortillas started flying through the air! (It’s a tradition; folks throw them like Frisbees.) One second, I’m composing the camera and telling the girls to “Say ‘cheese’ in 3-2-1…” The next, a guy wearing nothing but body glitter (and running shoes) is brushing past me down the street, whoosh!
The camera shutter clicked.
I’m thinking, Uh oh… Did I get the right shot? And the girls started cracking up. “Your eyes got SO BIG!”
This happened several times during the race. One or more naked butt cheeks would cross my path, I’d make a funny face, and my eyes would double in size! One might conclude that this wide-eyed effect was due to good old fashioned shock, but I say it was Majorelle Blue.
Yeah, it was mostly shock. But I do think Majorelle’s intense bright blue contrasts with my brown eyes in a way that makes my peepers look just plain HUGE!
