    I am so glad I’ve never been a make-up user! Not since I was fourteen and bought an orange flavoured lipstick – which my brother promptly ate.

    I’m a WYSIWYG. My face may not be perfect, but it’s the real me.

    I wish I could have a professional who is not trying to sell me makeup do my face. I wouldn’t mind knowing how to do it to emphasize my good qualities and lessen my not-so-attractive qualities without looking like a clown.

    Hello Cathy clan! Does anyone else use Safari as a browser? I’m having trouble seeing the comics on Safari (which I’ve been using for years), so I’m having to view them on Firefox now, which I don’t like as much. On Safari, the screen is mostly blank, like it started to render the image and never finished.

    Here’s a little secret that you ladies may not be aware of: Most guys prefer the “less is more” approach to makeup, too (no, I don’t mean that WE wear it — I mean that we think that women look their best in makeup when we almost can’t tell that they’re even wearing any!). A little lipstick, a little eye shadow, and a little blush go a long way, in my opinion.

    Clown makeup, indeed, Susan.

    Worthy of Cathy’s AACK, if you ask me.

    Whew—been a busy few days, so finally catching up on comics. I’ve missed you guys.

    HI, MOM. Hello, “Cathy” Clan.

    This make-up saleslady needs to do/sell something else because she’s absolutely no good at this particular job. She either applies it so lightly that it looks invisible [and not in a good way] or she applies it so heavily that it turns women into clowns! Everyone knows [or at least they should] that you can’t sell a product like this if you can’t sell it to its intended target. Department store make-up is MUCH more expensive than drugstore make-up so if their “beauty experts” are no good at applying it, then how are they going to convince any smart woman to buy it?!? If the department stores want me to shell out the extra cash for their ridiculously over-priced stuff, then they’re going to have to convince me — somehow — that they’ve got something the cheaper places don’t . . . and since there’s no such thing as “magic in a bottle”, I think I’m just going to stick with the less expensive drugstore stuff. Works just as well and looks just as good, in my opinion.


    Hi, rgcviper!


    Hello and Happy Sunday, fellow “Cathy” friends. Hope everyone’s had a really nice weekend so far!

    The makeup lady must know what she’s doing because she got Cathy (and probably others) to buy something.

    It was probably a cleanser!
