I learned this word from the 2008 movie, The Day The Earth Stood Still.
The movie is about aliens and the end of the world; and two of my favorite actors are in it, Jennifer Connelly and Keanu Reeves. Watch it.
Going back to precipice — this is where I am.
You say we are on the brink of destruction
and you are right.
But it is only on the brink that people find the will to change.
Only at the precipice do we evolve.
This is our moment.
Don’t take it from us,
we are close to an answer.
– Professor Barnhardt,
The Day The Earth Stood Still.
probably have no idea how difficult it is not to buy anything. I already slipped twice this month. I bought an orange lipstick and a siliconey-ful face primer. I won’t count the-thing-that-must-not-be-named (aka that-which-I-pre-ordered) until I have it with me. But, if you’re being technical — that’s strike three. I’m out.
I know I am doing it wrong. They say that when it comes to overcoming an addiction, you shouldn’t fight it. Because that’s like feeding the beast. The better way to handle it is to ignore the urge by focusing on something else.
It’s a cream. (I’m probably the only oily person who likes cream foundation.)
It doesn’t budge.
It seems like it comes in my exact shade (sx08) medium yellow/olive-ish skin tone.
It’s the ultimate, ULTIMATE(!) multi-purpose product.
I can see myself using it as a concealer, foundation, or a pigment to create the perfect-est tinted moisturizer.
It’s everything I want in a foundation (except for the dent it will leave in my bank account, and ‘dent’ might not even be the best word for it).
I feel like singing Let It Go.
I successfully carried on through discomfort before, when I deliberately tried to develop an acquired taste for vegetables.
I’ll try to hold on — at least until I finish a liquid foundation, a foundation stick, several concealers, and a lot of powder foundations.
If all else fails, I’ll activate Plan B — the 50% rule* i.e., I should have twice as much cash (not credit) before I buy this thing — 50% goes to savings, or to making someone happy.
* If not for this rule, I might have bought way more than 3 things this month, worse, with a credit card. Paying twice as much made me really evaluate the value of something.
This is pathetic.
EDIT 02.10.2014: I just bought it.
