PIP_the_TROLL: I've never understood the drooling over her.

Yeah, she's got a good body most of the time because she can pay a full-time trainer to help with the upkeep, but facially she's barely a notch above plain. She's a 7.5... 8 max.

Where's this fawning worship coming from?


She's rich and famous which justify a considerable amount of bragging rights to the person dating her.

You spent HOW MUCH on mascara?

I realize makeup is expensive, but come on.


I spend close to $30 for estee lauder mascara; it lasts almost 6 months, and it's the only mascara I've ever found that does not give me eye styes, so... there's that.

If its good stuff. I buy makeup rarely, because I don't wear it all the time, but I buy quality stuff. I make a "three month's supply" of Bare Minerals foundation ($35 a pop) last about a year.

Same could be said for my jeans. Lucky jeans ain't cheap but they're comfortable and last a long time.

Not to mention that quality mascara won't make one's lashes "goopy." That's bad stuff or 9 coats, possibly both. The good stuff simply makes them stand out against dark shadow on your lids.

Maybe I just play too hard. And by play I mean do yard work. There's no way I'm going to start spending more on pants than I already do.

Plus, I hate shopping for jeans. I'm very picky with them. I need a certain amount of space, IYKWIM, and even two different pair of the same brand, same size and same cut will fit different. What's up with that?

Thick, or more specifically dark, lashes highlight the shape of the eyes, and generally people find more distinct, easily recognizable features more iconic and easily remembered, which, if you're even moderately healthy and younger than retirement age, is going to translate to "attractive" for most people.

Same goes for eyebrows, which are also frequently darkened in personal makeup, and more subtly for other features. When people talk about things like "highlighting your cheekbones" they're talking about pairing a light color with a slightly darker one to make the shape that's already there more distinctive, which, again, tends to translate as more attractive just because it's easier to notice/remember regardless of what that shape is.

Take it a step further into, say, stage makeup, where you're trying to make actors' faces distinct so the audience can tell one guy from another from forty meters off, and the end-game sort of becomes more obvious, with dark or outright black lines highlighting normally subtle and close-up features like the lines on an actor's forehead and around his eyes, and a gradient around the jawline that's just a hair short of drawing that shiat on with a sharpie. Blonde actors have eyebrows that are almost sooted black so you can make out their facial expressions. Same principle, but unshackled by the uncanny valley restrictions.

Now, all that said, these ads are actually terrible. If you want to sell me makeup (assuming I wanted makeup, which is unlikely) then you need to actually have a realistic looking face showing that the makeup can actually make someone look more attractive. If you airbrush all the distinctive lines off of a face until it looks like Max Headroom and then turn the bloom up to "everything is lens flare" level, I'm probably not even going to realize you're advertising makeup, I'll just assume another of the new Star Trek movies is coming out soon.

//Not actually camp gay or metro, you just can't help learning more than you ever wanted to know about makeup with a few years doing theater in your spare time.
//Hm, that last slashy didn't really help the "not camp" assertion, did it.

My Lucky's are really comfortable, but one of the belt loops popped off, and a hole developed right above the pocket within a month of buying them. Probably an isolated incident, they're so comfortable that I'd give them a second shot.

Plus, I got them at Men's Warehouse; I shop there during the buy one, get one free sales, so i got those and a pair of some other jeans essentially for $40 each.

You're already wearing jeans, dude, you have no chance of looking classy. Just grab some spiderwire and scrap leather or denim and patch that shiat. I have some pairs of jeans that are technically like three pairs of jeans (pants that die the final death become scrap), and I can only sew in the boy scouts sense. They still look newer than the trendy washed/holed nonsense that people intent on bringing back 1993 still frequently wear.

//Actually the jeans I patched with leather scrap are quite serviceable working pants now, too, though they aren't as subtle in the "this repair is just to make the hole stop getting bigger" sense.

It could very well be that the only mascara I've noticed are cases where it's put on waaaay to heavily. I work at a large university, and there are plenty of girls walking around campus who look like they've got fuzzy black caterpillars attached to their eyelids. It seems like that's the style now. I've never had much luck with mascara myself. It feels heavy and weird when I try to put it on.

Well, it's a personal thing, makeup takes a lot of practice to master. You should have seen my face when I first attempted liquid liner. Disastrous.

I did a lot of theater so I'm comfortable in heavy makeup, these days I range from dark pin-up eyes to none at all, depending on the occasion.

And yeah, as far as fads, I think Amy Winehouse did it. WTF was up with the bride of Frankenstein eyes? At least make it look classy instead of "four year old got ahold of a magic marker."

I might try that. But I'm kind of uncomfortable buying jeans I haven't personally tried on. I once took two pair, same size/brand/cut into a dressing room. Tried one one and liked it. Bought both pairs. When I got home, the pair I didn't try on barely squeezed over my big butt.

my last pair of good levis (the thick kind with the normal waist/length measurements and at UK prices, jesus christ) lasted me 5 years before getting holes.

the new ones I got when visiting my folks probably won't last anywhere near as long.

stupid single number sizing so I had to try on about 8 pairs and still managed to get the wrong size, and very thin, stretchy cotton.

I don't know that I'll ever have the opportunity to steal your punchline, but if I do, I will. You win one free Internets!


"The only way I'd kick her out of my bed is if she wanted to fark on the floor" is a fairly easy to find a use for punchline

PIP_the_TROLL: I've never understood the drooling over her.

Yeah, she's got a good body most of the time because she can pay a full-time trainer to help with the upkeep, but facially she's barely a notch above plain. She's a 7.5... 8 max.

You consider a 7 to be plain? Wow. Your arm must get really sore.

MoronLessOff: I might try that. But I'm kind of uncomfortable buying jeans I haven't personally tried on. I once took two pair, same size/brand/cut into a dressing room. Tried one one and liked it. Bought both pairs. When I got home, the pair I didn't try on barely squeezed over my big butt.


The last time I went shopping for jeans, I tried on a pair of Levis 514 that fit really well, so I proceeded to grab three or four more in varying colors and materials, and just tossed them in my cart. When I got around to actually wearing them, I found that no two pairs fit the same way. They were all wearable, but some definitely fit better than others.

My wife laughed at me when I told her about it - I guess women already know that unless *everything* about two pair of Levis are the same (model number, color, material, etcetera), then there's no guarantee that they'll fit the same, no matter what the waist/inseam measurements say.

thisone:
my last pair of good levis (the thick kind with the normal waist/length measurements and at UK prices, jesus christ) lasted me 5 years before getting holes.
the new ones I got when visiting my folks probably won't last anywhere near as long.
stupid single number sizing so I had to try on about 8 pairs and still managed to get the wrong size, and very thin, stretchy cotton.
/levis I am dissapoint


There was a thread the other day where an actual Levi's employee was in there, and he said that they'd changed their fabric for a couple of years, like 2009-2011, and it was crap. But they'd had so many complaints that they had or were going to change back. Lemme see if I can find it.

Ok, here if you're interested. I haven't bought any new ones lately, so I didn't notice if they went downhill.

I like Carhartt's too, and they're all the rage out west, but I'm on the skinny side, and they're like elephant legs on me.

Not just Levis, but jeans in general. They're cut out in stacks, so pairs on the bottom of the stack are more or less stretched (I forget which) than the pairs on the top. Then they're all stitched together, they stick a size tag on them, and away they go. Then you factor in different washes - dark-wash jeans are frequently much stretchier and forgiving than light-wash jeans. Then add into THAT that clothing companies can't seem to farking agree on what a "size 6" actually means, so most women end up with clothes in a range of sizes. You eventually learn things like "Oh, I'm a 6 at Old Navy but an 8 at GAP and a 10 at Abercrombie.)

So yeah. This is why women take forever when they shop. We have to try on every single damn thing. -.- I hate it.

MoronLessOff: Orgasmatron138: kiwimoogle84: MoronLessOff: kiwimoogle84: Same could be said for my jeans. Lucky jeans ain't cheap but they're comfortable and last a long time.

I wish my jeans lasted longer. I have to set aside "nice" jeans just so I don't have to keep replacing them. And while they're comfy as hell, my loose Levi's with holes in the knees that go seam to seam aren't exactly pants I like to wear when I go out.

Hey, you get what you pay for. I've burned through five pairs of $35 Levi's for each pair of $90 Lucky's I've purchased.

My Lucky's are really comfortable, but one of the belt loops popped off, and a hole developed right above the pocket within a month of buying them. Probably an isolated incident, they're so comfortable that I'd give them a second shot.

Plus, I got them at Men's Warehouse; I shop there during the buy one, get one free sales, so i got those and a pair of some other jeans essentially for $40 each.

I've had the exact same thing happen to more than one pair of jeans. Hole in the back pocket corner? Check, but I can deal. Popped belt loop? Goddammit.

So, MWH sells Lucky's? I may check this out.


I went to MWH a year ago to get new suits for work. That was the first time I realized they had casual clothes. Their rewards program and store credit card are great. The salespeople in the store are a little aggressive, but nice. The in-store selection is good (as are the clearance sales). The online store is awesome. You can really clean up at that place if you know how to combine deals.

Natalie has a symmetrical, well formed bone structure in her chin and cheeks. Her forehead is broad and high without being a dome. She has nicely shaped and well sized lips for her face. Her eyes are positioned at a near exact golden rectangle proportion to her mouth and chin. She has clear smooth skin, of an attractive light olive color.

In other words, she is a beauty in the classical sense.

On the other hand, she is quite short and has a big head. So in long shots, she appears to be very young. This is a mixed blessing for a woman with a slight figure, since it can make her appear to be a tweenage boy from certain angles.
