Over the summer, a good friend who sells Mary Kay gave me a free lip gloss for being such a good customer. One morning as I was getting ready for the day, I put it on. I’d been dying to wear it. UGH! “What the hell? I loved the sample size when I tried it, why does it look so different? In fact, this looks like lip gloss for dark colored skin.”
I immediately texted my friend and complained to her that she sent me the wrong item. I was so disappointed because she lives in another state and getting the correct item was not going to be as simple as driving over to her house.
Here are our text exchanges from July 29. Lucky for me I never delete my messages:
Me: I hate to sound like an ingrate, but I don’t like the lip color you sent me. It’s awful.
Jen: Really??? I’m sorry.
Me: I went to put it on for the first time this morning and it just looks terrible on me.
Jen: But it barely has any color. I thought it was what you were looking for. Go on my website and pick a different one and I’ll send it to you asap.
Me: When I put it on it was so incredibly dark. There must have been a miscommunication cuz there is no way I would have wanted that one unless it’s different once it’s on. Is this gonna cost u money? I don’t want that to happen.
Jen: No not at all. What is the name of it? Maybe I made a mistake.
Me: LMFAO!!!! Don’t kill me….it’s EYE SHADOW. Oops! I grabbed the wrong one out of the drawer. I was wondering why it was so dry!!!
Jen: ROFL. hahahahaha. You are sooooo silly.
Me: Oh duh, that lip gloss you sent me is in my pocketbook. I’ve been using it for a week.
Jen: Are you drinking?
No, I wasn’t drinking, but maybe I should have been.
