Ahhh, the makeup aisle. You enter for a simple bottle of makeup remover, and emerge thirty minutes later with two new lip colors, blue eyeliner, nail polish in your favorite color of the month, and totally forget the remover. It's treacherous territory for beauty amateurs and pros alike, but it's completely overwhelming for others. If you've never stepped foot into a drugstore's beauty section, it's practically indecipherable.
Imgur user Blufiz learned just that when his girlfriend sent him on what she thought would be a simple makeup errand. Turns out, finding the perfect lip color is not as easy as it seems, but it is hilarious.
Luckily for us, Blufiz posted their whole conversation to Imgur for us to follow along. The girlfriend is on the left, boyfriend on the right.
Hmm. Not off to a good start...
Seems pretty simple to us. (Although, we'd recommend skipping the energy drink.)
You can do it, BF! Tell that kid to mind his own beauty business!
Whoops! Definitely not nail polish!
So close, yet so confused.
Seriously not grasping the concept of a "light, bright pink." Maybe he's thinking Lite-Brite?
WTF is "waffle stomped"????
Oh man. Somebody is having fun!
Honestly, where did that dinosaur even come from?
LOL. "Baby lips."
Yes! Nailed the false lashes section!
Dear god, don't use Elmer's. No. And can you imagine glue stick on your eyes? Yikes!
Just as the concept of dry shampoo was about to blow his mind, he forgot the most important thing. Note to self: guys need very specific instructions if they're going to navigate the beauty aisle, including, "Bring your wallet." But, seriously, mysterious girlfriend, hang on to your silly boyfriend. Any guy that's willing to try something new for you—like makeup shopping—is a real keeper.
Think your S.O. would hit the beauty aisle for you? Would he do as well as this brave guy?
