@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?
Me: CALIFORNIA YOU ASSHOLE
@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.

@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???

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?
@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
