Well, I use make-up, lightly most days but that doesn't mean I need a more 'female' chip. I like Doritos, powdery and all. Actually it is all the powdery flavour I like, (unhealthy as that is) otherwise I'd choose potato chips (called Crisps here)

Yeah, same, I'm a potato chip person myself...

Especially now that I'm figuring out how to make them at home.


They're amazing when they're warm...

Yeah. I just haven't figured out how thinly to cut them, especially with our fryer being so small.

But thick potato chips/crisps are still a whole new world of amazing when they're hot and crunchy.

Just not a fan of that stuff on my face and requires far too much maintenance. If I actually put on lipstick to get dressed up for something... I leave that stuff home and once it's worn off, oh well. lol

Oh god, this. If they want to make something quieter, work on the bags and help curb the excessive rustlers; esp in the work break room. lol

There's an art to avoiding too much crinkle with those bags.

Ugh, lipstick is the worst. I don't even like nail polish, unless it's clear and I don't wear that. lol I think the only way I would wear make up willingly is if I'm trying to cover up a spot or something. Seems that wearing make up too much would mess your skin up, not giving your pores room to breathe, right?

That aside, it's good that you could meet others who aren't into make up and stuff at your job. I think everyone around me wears some make up, at least foundation. Being in Japan, coming across Japanese women without some form of make up would be weird. I always shock people here when I say that I never wear make up because they then ask why my skin looks nice. I say, soap and water. lol

Some people I know wear little to none and some, more, doesn't really matter to me who wears it or doesn't.
I bought a new deep wine red lipstick yesterday (I never buy bright red) but rarely wear it, unless lipstick is a gentle colour it can be hard to pull off on pale skin...and skin that is not in it's 20s

I think nail polish is the only makeup I routinely wear, and I only ever really wear one color: silver.

I never did get the hang of I make up, except for mascara and eyeliner on my bottom waterline. And even then it's a crapshoot.

But I would love to learn the proper way to wear a dark red lip, because that brings me back to my college goth days.
