Tellie's Misadventures: Swatchfest Gone Bad!


I bought this Pop Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon Kit (Php 1290 / set of 6, from Glamourbox.ph) a few days ago and of course, I let it sit for a while. Makeup needs time to cure and mature (whut).


Just this Sunday, I take it out and snap some pics of the product before going to town with a swatchfest. I was so excited, you guys! I even took micelle water and cotton squares with me, thinking I'm such a smartass girl scout for lugging all the tools I'd need so I wouldn't have to get up once I settled on a shoot location. Swatch. Cleanup. Next Product. Swatch. Imma be a photoshoot MACHINE!

Now, if you've ever had a lip crayon, you will notice that it has a pointed tip. I wanted to preserve that tip because I'm just that kind of person. I was obviously haggard and not ready to take portraits of myself with the lip swatches so I took arm swatches first.


Pop Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon in Barely Bitten

Here's the stupid part: I thought that if I "wrote" with the crayon, it would be too much and I'd dull the pointed tip. We can't have that, no sir. It needs to be preserved at its original shape AT ALL COSTS.

So I had this genius idea of gliding the whole side of it, or what would be the unpainted wood portion for a real pencil, across my skin...

...AND THEN PHYSICS HAPPENED.



FML.

The whole tip just slides off like a fucking 10-10-10 waltz dancer. It literally pranced off across my arm!!!

LET'S PLEASE SPEND A MOMENT OF SILENCE TO MOURN THE LOSS OF MY NEW BABY CRAYON.

That's gotta be around 1g out of my 3g crayon 'cause I wasted even more product cleaning it up :((((

I tried to push it back in but it wouldn't work, I just ended up mashing the product through the sides, huhuhu.




Sigh. The remnants of my SHAME.



Have you had any swatching mishaps? Make me feel better, please!
