Back at the house, there's Tyra Mail: "Sometimes even top models have to work the late shift. Love, Tyra." The girls figure out that they're going to be up all night long. Let the music play on (play on play on play on). They head to Wal-Mart, of course. McKey actually looks disgusted. Joslyn wants to go shopping. The girls head to the makeup section, where they find Sutan. He introduces them to Crissy Barker, CoverGirl representative and wife of Nigel Barker! Well done, N-dog. Crissy reminds us that last year there was a makeup challenge in Wal-Mart, and then reveals Whitney's winning CoverGirl display. It's all very exciting, what with the smelling like a bomb and shining like a beacon. This year's makeup challenge will have the girls picking out the right shade of TruBlend foundation, then recording an improvised 30-second commercial for the TruBlend Shade Selector. The Shade Selector is like a little sneeze guard that you put your hand under to see which shade of TruBlend is right for you. Which is great if you intend to put the makeup on your hand. The winner of the challenge will have her improvised video featured on the CoverGirl web site, her image on the makeup page of WalMart.com, and a Wal-Mart gift card worth $1000. You could buy a lot of ammo with that.
The girls rush off to apply their makeup. Elina is fine with the makeup challenge but, in case you were wondering, is still not fine with her "silly hair." And then it's time for the commercials! Hannah is goofy and bucktoothed and, some would say, endearing. Samantha gets points for using the phrase "transparent palette." We learn that Isis would use the "warm beige" shade. Analeigh is not an improvisational master, nor is Brittany. But no one is quite so well spoken as Marjorie, who nervously says, "Thank God...for Walgreen's." Awesome. Elina looks uncomfortable. Analeigh ends her commercial by saying, "Leave it to the professionals. Leave it to Cover Girl. Yo." Like she's suddenly from the hood, like Tonya Harding or something. McKey gets points for going the "Easy, Breezy" route.
