Attack of the Dermablend [May. 23rd, 2005|05:43 pm]
The military should take on my mother. She'd make a great "sneaker upper".

Does anyone know how the hell to get dermablend off?

I got home from a day at the library (read: Jury Duty) and was about to take the kids to the pool. She sneaks up behind me with her hands full of Dermablend and COVERED my arms. All of them. Not just the tattoos, but my elbows, too.

Seriously...and the woman is like 10 shades darker than I am. This was supposed to make me inconspicuous? Noooooo, me thinks this just made me look like someone with oompah loompah make-up on my arms.

And the right arm wore mostly off in the water as Max was divebombing that arm the most.

I've spent 20 minutes with Sea Breeze...and the shit is like shalack. HELP!

I had always wondered about that stuff, how good it was. I'm freckled, plus I have a tattoo on my upper left arm.

Yeah...I'm thinking I'll pass on ever trying it.

You might want to try turpinetine to remove it ;) (I'm kidding I'm kidding)

The stuff is great for smaller areas...or even to cover blemishes and such. My mom started using it originally to cover vericose veins.

She was the type that would slather herself in baby oil and bake in the sun. So she's always been pretty dark.

But I do question how much of it these days is makeup. The woman seriously wears a TON of make-up. Not just on her face. Her clothing is ruined and I don't think she realizes how "dirty" she always looks.

Anyhow, yeah, I spent another couple of hours last night with Sea Breeze and sandpaper...well, close enough, anyhow.

If she pulls that again, I may very well end up with no tattoos because they'll all have been scraped/scrubbed off.

I have used the stuff once before. It's great if it matches your skin tone...even a close approximation. But the crap she uses is like 10 shades darker than I am. *shudder*
