… is a saying that means the joke is on you, you’ve been taken advantage of, perhaps in a kind way, perhaps not.
It is a play on the similar pronunciation of the English words: “yolk” [the inside of an egg] and “joke” [a trick played on someone].
This is funny. I guess. In context, maybe.
Allow me to explain.
I’m not a shopper so once I find a make-up product that works, and does not irritate my skin, I keep on buying it because it saves me the stress of shopping for, and experimenting with, something new.
Plus, genetics are amazing. Meaning that through no fault of my own my complexion is what it is, and I need the make-up colors that I need, because I am who I am.
Getting to my point here, since the beginning of the year THREE of my favorite color-perfect make-up products have been discontinued. They would be a Nars lipliner [Tonga], a Maybelline eyebrow pencil [Light Blonde], and a Revlon powder blush [Rose].
These colors? Natural. Basic. Pale.
Sure, the companies still exist, but they’ve replaced my perfect colors with something else. And the new something else colors are too bold or too shiny for me.
Who thought she had this whole make-up nonsense problem solved, but finds that the yolk is on her… which, it turns out, is not a good color for me! 😉
