So a friend of mine gave me this great Mary Kay lip gloss.
It seemed to be a colored gloss and a clear gloss all in one which totally feeds my desire for fashion choices.
I opened the colored end and found that it was a wand applicator with a sheer pink gloss on it. Perfect!
I opened the other end to find a clear gloss with a roller applicator and decided to try that one on. I rollered it over my lips but the darn thing seemed to be stuck so I rolled it over my finger until it started to work.
Yeah, I noticed a smell that reminded me of my Grandma but I just figured it was the scent of the lip gloss.
I rollered it on my lips some more and as soon as it went on, it dried up again.
And I find that when something doesn’t work I keep trying it, hoping that somehow it will magically fix it self and start working again. So that is exactly what I did.
I rollered and rollered and rollered….waiting for the gloss to make my aging lips all plump and shiny, but all I got was more Grandma smell and lips that were chapping by the second.
And in a moment of clarity, which it seems doesn’t happen quite enough; I decided it was about time to read the directions on the tube. And you know what they revealed?
This was a lip gloss and a PERFUME!
Now I’m sure that Mary Kay herself thought that was just the bees knees of inventions but I’m here to tell you that, while I have the best smelling grandma lips in all of Washington State…maybe even the world, I just can’t picture my own grandma wearing shiny pink lip gloss with her smelly perfume.
