"I just can't do it. In my head, I totally get that there are cool, subtle options when it comes to glittering eye shadow. But in my heart, every sparkly offering out there just makes me think of my freshman year in college, and the aggressive reliance on body glitter (and tube tops, and black pants...sigh) that was an integral part of any night out. So, I'll stick to my matte neutrals and avoid the flashbacks, thankyouverymuch."
