On behalf of women everywhere, I would like to lodge a formal complaint with whoever is in charge of lighting the cosmetics counters in department stores.

Dear Sir,

You are woefully inadequate. Today, I was at Dillard’s in Paradise Valley Mall to purchase an emergency ration of Elizabeth Arden moisturizer which I cannot live without. ( see Scottsdale: desert habitat. ) My skin is parched. I decided to switch from a cream/powder foundation to a cream foundation. This is a simple, yet universal process of matching the foundation to your skin tone. It requires proper lighting.  Without it, women the world over risk looking like this.

Not good.

We should not have to march out into the mall entrance, cosmetics specialist in tow, with a hand mirror and prospective make-up to attain the proper shade. We feel ridiculous and it makes us grumpy. Grumpy women do not buy more cosmetics. They order martinis instead.

For the record, this is not something that only occurs at Dillard’s. I have personally experienced this more times than I can recall in department stores the world over.

GET WITH THE PROGRAM ! You’re bugging us.


Scottsdale Fashionista and the women of the world

p.s. Fluorescent lighting in the dressing room should be illegal and punishable by death.
