Spread the love

On the eve of February 23, we invited three couples in the store Sephora and asked the girls to choose gifts for their men. And then invited the men to choose the gifts for themselves. Look at what happened.

Yes, Yes, dear, for this venture we need fearless volunteers, who do not know fear or reproach and ready for fun “go there, do not know where.” We issued the call — see the post “Secret project Sephora: who’s ready to gamble?”.

Conditions are not prescribed — it would ruin the intrigue.

Applications, surprisingly, it’s a lot. (We always assumed that we read adventurers:) Chose our favorite method “at random”. Among those lucky enough (or not?) turned out to be three pairs: Marina and Anton, Christine and Ruben, Larissa and Nicholas.

On the appointed day and hour they arrived at the shopping center “atrium”, where he first learned the rules of the game:

  • First in shop Sephora is a girl. And picks the 5 beauty things, as she supposes, like her husband/boyfriend/companion. It’s got 20 minutes.
  • Then Sephora is the husband/boyfriend/partner. And picks the 5 beauty things that I wouldn’t mind to receive a gift. It had the same 20 minutes.
  • Funds that will be in both baskets, the couple receives a gift. Well, OK, let’s say, a complete coincidence, including specific tools, not necessarily — but at least they have to match!
  • In case of controversial cases (and in General for usbtiny mass) we came up with anketki with five simple questions. The questions were: 1) Steak or herring? 2) Norway, or Thailand? 3) Wine or whiskey? 4) Party at home or at the restaurant? 5) Cat or dog? “. Asked them, of course, girls and boys separately. The boys responded from his face, the girls tried to guess how they answered the boys.
  • And the most important thing. We asked them to surrender their weapons, have cell phones. Because if there is a cell phone any fool a smart man will tell his companion of their choice.
  • Look at some of the pairs there is a complete understanding.

    Marina and Anton, married 6 months in relationship for 7 years.

    Marina is a fashion designer, Anton is an artist. Met at the Institute 13 years ago.

    The first went in Sephora Marina.

    Marina: “Oh, my… Dear consultants, where you for a beard?!”

    After 20 minutes went on the hunt Anton.

    Anton: “is It really necessary?!”

    Answers Marina and Anton to the questionnaire coincided in 4 cases out of 5. Anton chose the steak, a dog, a house party, and whiskey. Marina had expected. But with the journey came nakladochka:

    Norway or Thailand?

    Anton (to myself): Thailand. Marina (of Anton): Norway!

    Competent jury (Yana and Nastya) decided that, in General, from the responses to the questionnaire, a coincidence can also be considered:

    • Flavors. Choice Marina Homme Cologne, Dior, the choice of Anton — Gentleman, Givenchy, both close to each other ideologically and are the same price category
    • Purification. The choice of Marina — cleansing exfoliant 2 in 1 Exfolianting Cleanser, Clarins, the choice of Anton — Active Face Wash, Clarins. In the end, both means — for maintaining cleanliness and order on the face).

    The win of Anton and Marina:

    Marina: “I knew that he uses Clarins, and as a normal man, not inclined to experiments, choose it. But the remedy for beard I took the last one! More of this on the shelves was not. Accordingly, Anton was not able to find it and put it in his basket. So that’s my bad. You could have to think about it.”
