I was recently influenced by another blogger, Belgian Waffle, raving about her love of a new eye-shadow by NARS, called 'Aigle Noir...' (CLICKIE)
You know what a romantic Fhina is, non?! So she just couldn't resist,
1) The recommendation of a hallowed bloggerista...
2) A beauty product named 'Black Wing'
3) Something that was going to make me irresistable to the opposite sex.
...Well, "Ca va sans dire"***, right?!
So when I was layering the dark shadow look liberally on my eyes one morning last week before work. ...And GJ walked into the room, (usually I put my make-up on in the car while he's driving, when he's not as observant!), and asked me,
"What the hell is that you've got on your eyes??!"
And I tweet,
"It's a new eye-shadow, "Aigle Noir,""
(Which he'd understand because his late mother was a French teacher, bien sur...)
And I dared to add,
"Why, what's wrong with it?"
"There's nothing wrong with it", he chuntered...
"...If you're a panda."
Sometimes I don't know why I even bother...
Where's that paper bag?!
