Everything Old Comes New Again


I love the Sephora ads, even if they won’t mail anything to me in Qatar. I have to use all my points when I am back in the USA. I still love seeing what I am missing, and if I really really want something, I can usually find someplace to order it or someone to take a run to Sephora to get it for me, especially when I am getting low on just-the-right-shade-of-eyeshadow. And no, no, the Sephoras in Kuwait and Qatar don’t carry all the brands that a full-fledged Sephora in France or Germany or the USA will carry. No Urban Decay for sure.

But this – this has a familiar ring to it. When I was young, even a kid, I think there was some lipstick that made the same claim, you put it on and it turns the right color for you.

So how does it do that?

  1. Maybe it’s like the “mood rings” LOL!

  2. I don’t know but I’m not really finding this to be WOW. The lipstick you put on looks different on different people because the color of your lips is different plus I don’t know what they mean by “the perfect red shade”? Does the “chemistry” see you, know your face and tone, and change accordingly?

  3. LLLOOOLLL, Momcat!

    Well exactly, 1001! It’s all merchandising, isn’t it? And, on me, there is NO perfect red shade, LOL!
