|I'm really running low on Ulta Nail polish...|
For me, this is so true. Since starting my blog and really getting into makeup and the likes, some common phrases that I use regularly have changed in meaning quite significantly. I expect many of you have found the same, and I imagine for most of you there is a friend/boyfriend/parent/sibling who sometimes misinterprets your lingo. Here are some phrases that have changed in meaning for me...
(What I say - What I really mean)
I'm going for a natural look today - I'm only wearing concealer, mascara, lip gloss, blush and a nude shadow
I'm going grocery shopping - I'm going to go buy the new lipstick from Australis...oh, I might pick up some carrots on the way home.
I'll be ten minutes in Priceline and then I'll meet you in the food court - I have no idea how long I'll be but I know it won't be less than half an hour.
I've been on a spending ban - I've only bought 10 makeup products this month, how disciplined am I?!
I'll pack lightly for this trip - I'm only bringing three lipsticks for the two day trip and six eyeshadows instead of twenty.
I only carry bare essentials in my handbag - I have a nail file, two lipsticks, five lip balms and concealer in my bag
Oooh nice lipstick -did you order that online from overseas? - Oh my God, how do I not know about that! I need that now! Nearest Priceline here I come!
I only bought a couple of things - I only bought half of what was on my ten page list of makeup to buy.
I would repurchase this lipstick - I totally would get this lipstick once it runs out... if I ever got to the end of it (and all the other lipsticks I have in the same shade)
I don't have any blush like this! - I only have five other blushes like this!
Who did your makeup? - It looks so good, how on Earth did you get your eyes like that?
Did you do your own makeup?- It's hideous, what were you thinking?
Do you have any face wipes? - I totally need to get these swatches off my hand before I walk out of Priceline
I picked up the Priceline catalogue yesterday, looks like there are some good sales - I looked at the Priceline catalogue online the moment it came out, the sales are incredible, I've already made the most of them.
Are you wearing fake lashes? - You seriously need to get to a mirror right now, your fake lashes are falling off and look like hairy caterpillars have set up camp on your eyelid.
Hopefully you found this post a bit of a laugh! I would love to know phrases that have changed in meaning for you, and whether others get frustrated by it!
