Dear People of the Makeup World, STOP Testing Drugstore Makeup

Dear People of the Makeup World,

Dear people of the makeup world,

It is not ok to swatch, try on, squish, squeeze, touch, smush, smash, unwrap, open, or test makeup at the drugstore. You are not at Sephora, you are not at your favorite makeup counter, there are no testers at the drugstore and the products you’re swatching, smashing, and smushing are ones that other people actually want to purchase and OWN so stop making a mess of them! Not only are drugstores losing money because of you but you’re making a lot of makeup lovers cry and become rather pissy when they see a limited edition product or color they want only to open it when they come home and find it has been freaking used.

Please stop.

Thank you!


Have You Ever Considered Starting Your Own Makeup Blog?

Have you considered starting your own

Have you ever considered starting your own makeup blog? Do you love beauty and makeup so much that you’ve wanted to blog it?

I’ve always had a passion for makeup, skincare, and beauty but starting a blog was never on my mind! It all happened rather randomly.

Have you ever considered starting your own beauty blog?

Nail Clipping in Public

There are certain beauty tasks that you don’t perform in public such as nail clipping. If you follow me on Instagram you might have been privy to my nail clipper slash pen duo. Yeah, so that’s a thing.

Is the Lipstick Index Down?

The lipstick index is a term used by Leonard Lauder to describe the sales of cosmetics (and lipstick) during the recession. Basically, lipstick sales are apparently a good way to tell how the economic health is doing.

During times of a poor economy lipstick sales are up because women (or men) tend to purchase it as a “simple” pleasure versus buying more high end dresses, shoes or other expensive products.

For me, lately, it feels like the Lipstick Index is terribly down!
