On Miss Manners Doesn’t Live Here

@hahahaha, ja. Sometimes I pretend not to know what they're talking about to see if I can push them into saying something really terrible so that I can then be like "J'accuse motherfucker!"

Also, this only started happening to me after I moved out of California, granted I did live in an area with a large Asian population.

Man (it's always a man): Where are you from?
Me (Chinese girl): California
Man: No, I mean where are you REALLY FROM?

@mangosara Yes! Get it then tell me how much of your face fell off the first time you use it so I can gauge if my skin is normal. But seriously, it's completely addicting

@mangosara thanks for the tips everybody!
In skincare news, I just bought this cure aqua gel exfoliator stuff on amazon and it is BA-NA-NAs! Its this clear watery gel that you rub on your face and as you rub, all the dead skin just balls up and falls off in a totally disgusting/ satisfying way and then your skin is all soft and nice looking. Asian skincare technology is so beyond

@cminor Can we make this the beauty/make up questions thread? Whats a good not too heavy foundation or tinted moisturizer for oily-ish skin? I'm kind of looking at that new benefit oxygen one, nars sheer glow, chanel vitalumiere aqua, or the laura mercier tm. ADVICE???

@frigwiggin I just cut my hair from boob length to a just above chin length bob and I looooove it! It's super shiny and healthy looking, takes no time to wash, and hair products actually work now!

On Dear Internet,

@laurel Paz is just too good. That messy brown lipstick, perpetual onscreen (and real life) nakedness, the way she calls everyone Daddy on Boardwalk Empire. I die. And yes to the LA light thing! Nobody on the east coast ever knows what I'm talking about but it's just different, sort of soft and hazy but absolutely golden.

On Dear Internet,

I mean I do understand the flack she gets because she does seem sort of artificial and ridiculous sometimes but I also think that she is totally sincerely into everything she sings/talks about in a way that maybe makes people suspicious because they're not used to total transparency and earnestness? or maybe I'm overthinking it.
Video Games gets me every time though, so that's something.

@area@twitter I'm also in Baltimore! It is wet and cold and I am...already drunk.
Unrelated but also sort of related: Should I start watching The Following?

On Jane Marie, What's Actually in Your Makeup Bag Right Now?

@stonefruit Oops I posted a comment about Blinc further up in the section but I really like it! No smudging at all which is a first for me. I usually wear it for a daytime look though since it's not really that dramatic. I've been using the Givenchy Noir Couture for going out times since I usually do a smoky smudgy thing anyway so it doesn't matter if my mascara runs a bit
