NARS Gilda+ Laguna

Hey all
First of all I would like to say something....
I F*CKEN hate sales assistants that's BITCHES!!!!...
I just hate them.. full stop!!!.. why?? because I wanted to buy estee lauder's double wear light foundation which I heard good reviews about and wanted to try it out. BUT.. as I went to the counter in DAVID JONES (I think it's equvalent to nostroms in USA, not too sure) any ways; the sales assistants talking amongst them selves and I was looking at them for help, they choose to ignore me.. like fine. so I walked to them and said " excuse me, I'm looking for EL double wear light, and the samples at the counter only had intensity 3 onwards, wonder if you have intensity 1 and 2 ?" I wanted to try it on my hand and see how the colour would look like...

one of them this old HAG.. (atleast freaken 60 sth) any ways said to me " what ever we have there is what we have. if you can't find it, that's it." I WAS LIKE WTF LADY!!!! of cuz I didn't say that out aloud. then I looked around and I saw the original double wear and I tried some colour on my hands, and I thought probably my colur would be 2N1 or 2N2; then one of the assistent came to me and said " Hi, you need help there? btw that's not double wear light" I was like.. yeah obviously.. it says on the bottle that it's " DOUBLE WEAR". I said to her, " If I am yellow toned would you think that neutral would be ok for me?" she said " well, yellow toned people are better suited to WARM, and by looking at you, Fresco (2N2) would be fine it's a more popular colour we don't have sand beige (2N1)."

I tried 2N2 on my jar line and thought, pretty good colour match, but a bit grey toned, but it's not too bad. any ways.. then I asked her would you be able to have a sample for me to try the consistency?? she said " I will have a look for you." Of course I said "thank you." so I waited..

then as that sales assitent was looking for sample, the old lady went to talk to her and I don't know what she said but the SA returned to me and said " Awwwww, i'm sorry we ran out of samples. you might have to come back next week may be???"

I got angry.. I seriously got angry, I have never been so angry at any sales before. sigh.. I don't get how they can be so bitchy?? sigh.. I said to her " that's fine, i don't have time next week any ways." then I walked away......

I swear, If they did have something I would've liked to purchase I would refuse to buy it !!!!

any ways.. that's over.. Lets share some good things =p

I promised I would post something on laguna and gilda blush.
So I combine it together. SO I used laguna as contour under my cheek bone and used gilda as blush... The foundation is Dior forever flawless and No other make ups. just
-foundation
-contour
-blush
I did the photos under different lightings, like in my room, in the bath room, in the kitchen LOL








That's all for now...
hehe Gota run, will show you what I got for my birthday =p..

I think it has to do with being young. No joke. When I use to work for _______ I had to attend workshops on how to "determine people who are willing to spend" from those who didn't want to or had no money. How fucked up is that?
I have been victim to this as well. I'm a college student and I sometimes do not have time to doll myself up and go out to purchase things after my classes so on these days I feel like I'm more ignored than helped.

Other occasions are when I am with my parents, these sales reps. are like flies to a light zapper! They are so kind and friendly offering bottles of water and mints like crazy.
I hate how stereotypes are given:(
Just be sure to look a little more "mature". Stupid, I know.

I love your close up shots..just like those in magazines that shoes the side of the face! I love it

So sorry about your experience with the SAs SAs really..some of them think they are beauty GOD or something! I hate it, I know how you feel about them NOT giving samples you know why? Some of them may keep it for themselves! don't waste your pretty energy on her!

hi again, i think wendy might be right: i had been inside barney's a few times but since i looked too young, salespeople would just ignore me cos i didn't have that shopping body language or whatever...

the nars blush and bronzer look great. i wanna get laguna!!

i do wanna ask u though: how do you like your shu uemura powder foundation??

Sandy said...

yeah the city one is pretty bad. they think they know everything. i have a lot of friends working in the cosmetics department in the bondi one. if you need anything , just let me know :) x
