My awesome friend sent me a belated birthday/Christmas x 3 (we’d been meaning to send each other presents for 3+ years), but last week I received an awesome box from her and I thought I’d show you some of the cool things I got, maybe some you might want me to review? I don’t know, but let’s have a peek.
Lipsticks are regularly between $20-$30. A palette with five eyeshadows can be close to $100 bucks and the cheapest and usually ‘cost-friendly’ packaging apparently is the most bougie thing because it has an ominous K attached in it.
What the fuck? Did I go to sleep one night and wake up in an alternate timeline? Did I hit my head? Again? Wasn’t the MAC lipsticks I was buying in Canada 15 bucks like.. two seconds ago? Now to get one I’m looking at $36?? Again, what the fuck?
With previously non-cosmetic brands dipping their toe into the makeup waters, beauty influencers (aka “YouTube Makeup People”) attached to companies being the norm, everyone is taking a ride at getting your money. I mean, that’s cool; competition is good for customers as we hold the key. However, the price I’m willing to spend and the products I’m offered are not on the same page most of the time. When I review a product on here, the price and value are pretty much the top of the pinnacle… which I guess is why I haven’t reviewed much makeup.. *cough*
Anyway, it’s getting a bit ridiculous out there and I want to know why, so, I went on a month-long journey down the Alice-In-Wonderland rabbit hole to gather as much information and to cover different areas and instances. It was… stressful. My eyes hurt. The speech program on my computer needed a glass of water every 1000 words spoken.
Do I have any real information to give you? I don’t know, but let’s find out.
[I might try to break this up into smaller parts because once you go down this rabbit hole of bullshit, it’s hard to get out. I literally have 12 tabs open, 2 down from a few days ago.
Also, don’t be surprised if I amend this post 20000 times because I’ve forgotten to put things in it.]
You know when you’re brain just keeps going “jfskfdjfdsk” at something and makes it difficult to actually express what you want to say? That’s how I feel about a lot of things, but today, it’s about peel off masks.
We’re back! I hope you haven’t missed us too much (if you’re on Twitter, you might be sick of us and our Eurovision live-tweeting). We were going to update and move the site to its first .com site, however we’re holding off on that until later in the year.
While we’ve been away though, we’ve had time to try out oil pulling ‘toothpaste’ by Keeko!
Ahhhh, the 90s. It was different for everyone. For me, it was a great time of crushed velvet and purple lipstick with questionable hairstyles. I am a quintessential 90s kid and like every single one of my kind out there, I miss the 90s. Some things weren’t great, but personally for me it was a great time… maybe excluding the time I crimped all of my hair after having it braided and went to school with an Ala Electrocuted Look. A learning experience, I must say.
