This girl's mum convinced her dad that Ulta meant “utilities” on their bills and we bow down to her beautiful brain

Makeup is OUR kinda utilities, anyway 💅

05 Jan 2018

Have you ever lied to your partner about your spending? Perhaps just a tiny white lie like forgetting a "0" at the end of the cost of your new jeans, or saying that you had a voucher for your new manicure? How about casually managing to convince them that the $250 you spent on makeup was actually on bills?

That's exactly what 'trishaaaayyye's mother did to her poor unsuspecting father, and we can only admire her quick thinking. And admire her for finding a husband so gullible and willing to waver $250. *adds new bio to Bumble*

The tweet went viral, and everyone was pretty impressed - and could totally relate.

LMAOO my mom said she wants to meet your mom because she’s awesome

Don't fret though, her dad did eventually find out the truth.

Anyway, who says that makeup isn't a utility? We're planning on nabbing this technique the next time anyone asks us just how much we spent on a new Charlotte Tilbury palette. Errrm, it's a necessity?
