In the same grocery store where I found meatless beans, I was caught chuckling out loud at the book rack. The store only seems to carry religious books, but I found these two titles on the same rack a little bit paradoxical. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find one on limbo.
I decided to go a little lighter with my hair for the summer and thought of highlights, but I don’t care for the high cost and maintenance of highlights. I normally use L’Oreal hair dyes, and I’m pretty good at picking out the right colors so I don’t end up having to go to a professional. L’Oreal has put out some new “Sunkissed Caramels” on the market that are supposed to make hair appear to be “sunkissed” or somewhat highlighted. This one, called “hi-lift gold brown” is specifically for dark hair – dark brown and black – and promises no brassiness that boxed dyes often do to dark hair.
I thought that this $7.99 deal was the answer to the expensive and high maintenance highlighting issue. What my hair turned out to be was nothing near what the box promised. Brassiness didn’t even begin to describe my new ‘do. I could have passed for Mrs. Ronald McDonald.
Luckily, I was able to cover this one up with a neutral dark brown the following day. Loreal Sunkissed Caramels for dark hair? Unless you want this to happen to you, I would rate this as highly NOT recommended.
(**Note: An article in Forbes about Kobe beef being sold in the U.S. as not being actual Kobe has raised a lot of issues about consumers being lied to. Not only is it unethical for companies to claim something on a label that is completely false, but it is outright fraud and should be treated as so by the U.S. government.)
Sometimes labels can be so truthful that I find myself laughing out loud in the grocery store. As a matter of fact, there was a man standing next to me wondering why I was doing so and taking a picture of this can of beans. I told him what I saw, and at first he didn’t get it until I repeated, “It’s a can of beans with no meat.”
If you saw a label like this one you’d laugh, too! Who do they think they are kidding? Do they normally sell canned beans with meat?
