I have a bone to pick with CoverGirl. For about a month i've been searching for the blush that i've grown fond of over the years. I've looked high (Target) and low (Wally World) and it's no where to be found. Apparently CoverGirl has discontinued my blush -- the only blush they made for folks of the dark chocolate persuasion.
Now, before you start telling me how Queen Latifah and Rianna wear CoverGirl so there must be a shade out there for me, i must explain that those two lovely ladies are what my grandma would call "of the yellow bone persuasion." Ain't nothing wrong with being yellow -- my kids will be yellow and clearly my daughter will have no problem finding blush. But this is about me.
I've tried finding another blush in another brand but every thing is too rosy and either makes me look like i'm doing a play or like i have powdered donut dust on my cheeks. I may have to break down and order some Avon or see if Mary Kay finally started making makeup for chocolate people. I went to my first and only Mary Kay party about 10 years ago and realized that Miss Mary didn't realize folks came shades other than pale. But it's been a decade so I might give her another shot.
Now, listen up CoverGirl. You are already on my crap-list so i suggest you make sure you continue producing the eye shadows and mascara i like or i might have to call Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
