And a little commentary on American Consumerism – ’tis the season! I have decided to not Black Friday shop at stores that have decided to open on Thanksgiving especially the ones that made such a big deal about closing last year so that people could spend time with their families – looking at you Macy’s. Was caring about your employees just a 2016 thing? Stores already open at 4 AM – I don’t understand that need to start shopping on Thanksgiving Day – why can’t we just have a break from consumerism? Or shop online. Don’t get me wrong, my first jobs were in retail and I loved working Black Friday – a group of us gals would get together after the family events and
get wasted have a few glasses of wine, stay up until we had to be to work watching Christmas movies, throw on some red lipstick and hit the mall. It was a blast, I was also 21, that type of behavior would have me in my grave now but I loved my retail days. I just think it is a bummer for people with families who have to cut out early for work so that people can buy more things that they don’t need. So I am skipping some deals, tossing on my red lips and supporting stores that invest in the well-being of their employees.
This year’s lips will be Russian Red from MAC – a lovely ruby, red that I really like against my skin tone. This is only one of two MAC lippies that I have tried but I really like their formula. It is creamy but sets down fairly well and doesn’t slip or smear all day. I feel like this is a creme/matte in between finish, it’s very comfortable. It is also very opaque and I found it easy to apply – I really enjoy this formula.
If you are working this Thanksgiving/Black Friday – I hope that your shift goes quick and you can enjoy some of the day. If you are shopping, be respectful of store employees – don’t tear displays apart or chuck stuff on the floor. I’m that bitch that will tell you that you dropped something 😛
Thanks for stopping by <3
