Yep, I said it. In a well known fashion magazine that starts with a G in the March issue it told you if you didn’t want to splurge on foundation go the the makeup counter, have a beauty advisor match you up to your exact color, have them make you a sample of it and then take it to the drugstore to find the exact match. Hey, I’m all about saving money too and if you want to go to the drugstore to find a foundation that’s all right by me. I’m all about finding drugstore deals. Just don’t tell readers to :
- Come to the counter to match you up.
- Not buy it and ask for a sample.
- Leave to buy a different one somewhere else cheaper.
First of all it takes time to match you up. If you say want to find a foundation we’re going to ask you a lot of questions. What kind of skin do you have i.e. oily, dry, combo etc. Then we’re going to ask you what kind of finish do you want i.e. dewy, matte, satin, natural. And then we’re going to ask you how much coverage do you want. Then we’re going to ask you if you have anything on and if you do, do you want to take it off so we can color match you. Usually we will put on a moisturizer, primer and then foundation. If it’s liquid we might put on powder and then of course a little blush so you won’t look one colored. If we do all this and then you ask for a sample we will tell you your face is the sample. If you want to wear it around and see it in different lights and how it wears for the day we totally understand that. But to intentionally waste our time and ask for a sample of what we put on you because you are going to buy something different somewhere else when we could of been helping the other customers who truly did need our assistance and are patiently waiting is really unfair to us and the real customers.
If you want to buy one at the drugstore I’m sure they have a decent return policy if it doesn’t work out for you. And don’t forget we do remember the ones who try to fool and trick us so when you come back and we don’t help you so quickly, it’s because we’ve given the “codeword” to our co-workers so they know not to waste time with you because you just got labeled.
