The Ballad of Pasty Jack


Hey lambchops! Happy summer! To celebrate, I have been getting my ass kicked by work. It's awesome. I love it.

Also, I have been sweating a lot, and getting sunburned. Which allows me to introduce what I believe will be a regular theme on Eyeshadow Government in coming months, Stuff That Has Something To Do With Sun and/or Heat, At Least In My Mind.

First up, Dallas powder blush/bronzer, by the Venerable Benefit. I am so pale that I can't even use self-tanner, because it just turns greenish on my blue skin. So it's all about taking it one day at for me, with bronzers and whatall. Except I'm so pale I can't even use a lot of bronzers.

I'm so pale, my ass has its own zipcode. IN PALETOWN. No? Lost you? Ok.

Dallas is actually a pretty nifty solution to the pale problem for me, because it's not orangey, or even brown, it's a nice plummy color with the subtlest gold flecks. It reminds me of the pretty striated stone in the Painted Desert, which is nowhere near Dallas, but whatever. Somehow, it manages to look like the color I would get if I ever actually got color, as opposed to the color I would get if I stole someone else's skin. Which, you know, gross.

More soon, including WHY CAN'T I JUST BE PALE AND LOVE IT?

I too have observed and unrestrainedly applied the DALLAS blush. Holla! It's totally Daisy Duke for hermits.
