On Tuesday afternoon I stopped by the mall before going to work, just to peruse around a bit. I walked into JCPenney and, of course, found myself in Sephora. I’m always amazed how well things are displayed to make the store within a store stand out so well. As I was looking and admiring the displays a tiny wooden textured box caught my eye. A single Tart lip paint in the shade Texas Toast glowed like a beacon as it beckoned me to come forward. Since I missed a couple of opportunities to scoop up this unique shade, I lunged for it like a crazed Black Friday shopper. I’ve had plenty experience with the rush of Black Friday shopping, and I had to protect my loot.
Even with the thrill of success in achieving this prize, I began to second guess whether or not Texas Toast was different than any other shade I already had at home. Did I really need another dupe for this shade or that? I wandered from Kat Von D to Buxom to Too Faced and began swatching the lipsticks I owned from these companies, comparing it to the lip paint safely encased in the box strongly clutched in my grasp. Nothing matched.
Texas Toast is grey, taupe, lavender, mauve, pink, I don’t know! It’s honestly the most outstanding shade I have ever used. Love love love!!! Every time I see Bunny wear it or someone else posts a picture wearing it I can’t stop staring.
With the convenience of online shopping, this could have been mine several times, but I’m weird and like to happen upon things. I’m very careful with what I use my money to buy, and even though I wanted this badly, I am so glad I waited to stumble upon it. My day was cheered, and I have received several compliments when wearing it.
