Makeup No More

Happy hump day! How is your week going? Mine is pretty, well if we put it in my husband’s best friend’s words – shnazzy (is that how you spell shnazzy? I hope so!)

First of all, let me share something with you:

– Working in retail turns you into a mean, spiteful person, who constantly wants to make fun of other people, especially customers. So let’s all try and be a perfect customer to each other shall we?

– Working in retail turns you into a helpful and compassionate person, who is supportive and loving of his coworkers, so lets be that coworker to each other!

– Sometimes helping each other pays off, today it paid off in:

 

Another thing that’s been on my mind today and honestly for a while is

“I SHOULD STOP BUYING MAKEUP”

Here is why:

And this is how it’s all organized in and on my dresser:

Now being the geek that I have been this past week, I came up with some numbers. So my collection includes:

5 Blushes

3 Powders

2 Bronzers

2 Highlighters

1 BB Cream

1 Tinted Moisturizer

1 VitaZing

1 Foundation

11 Liners:

– 7 gel

– 1 liquid

– 4 pencils

10 Mascaras:

– 1 Primer

– 1 Clear

– 1 Blue

– 7 Black

Lipsticks:

– 1 Lipliner

– 6 glosses, plus whatever is at work (about 3, I think)

– 2 chubby sticks

– 4 lipsticks

2 Serums and 1 Primer (I know these are mainly skincare, but they have snuck in the pictures somehow)

5 Concealers:

– 1 Brightening

– 1 Dark Circle corrector

– 1 Acne corrector

– 2 regular ones

1 Eyeshadow base ( 🙂 )

34 Nailpolishes

4 Shimmer Powders

6 Eyeshadow singles

23 Eyeshadow Palettes, 10 of which include blushes, bronzer and/or highlighters, then 5 of these include lipsticks and glosses

Now you know why I am going to stop buying make up. I don’t know how long it’s going to take me to use those things up, some items will run out/expire faster than others, but the goal is to use up as much items as possible 🙂 And I will definitely keep you updated!

Also, please no judgement on my collection, it is what it is 🙂

A Case of Makeup Plagiarism: Hey Revlon, create new product much?


I wasn’t originally going to even write anything, because these images are pretty self explanatory, but this case of plagiarism just wants to make me laugh, or cry, I don’t know! The funny thing is – I found the Revlon picture on some blog last night, and left a comment that Revlon has completely ripped off the chubby stick, I literally had to look twice! And I work at Clinique! So I left a comment on that blog and the author didn’t even post it, you know those blogs when your comment is awaiting moderation and then it never appears? (oh wait I do that on my blog too! But that’s so none of you would be offered sex toys from Germany or Russian brides). I just wish people would’ve been more honest and open to criticism, besides, I wasn’t saying anything against her, just the company! I also hope that you understand that even though I work at Clinique, I still use other brands, including drug store ones, but hey Revlon is going off my list, with it’s crappy nail polishes and awful PhotoReady!

Have a fabulous day everyone, I know I will!

PS. The pictures were taken off of Revlon’s FB page and Musings of a Muse, who also provides a great review and compares Revlon to Clinique and Tarte!

На самом деле я изначально не хотела даже ничего писать под этими двумя фотографиями, так как они говорят сами за себя! Но такой плагиат заставляет меня биться в такой истерике (то ли от смеха, то ли от слез, сама еще не поняла!) Самое интересное, что я нашла фото с новой продукцией от Ревлон на одном блоге, и сразу же оставила комментарий, что данный продукт является точной копией Chubby Stick от Clinique. Мне даже пришлось приглядеться поближе, хотя я работаю в Клиник! Но мой комментарий так и не появился – знаете есть блоги, где автор может модерировать комментарии, то есть вы его оставляете, а потом ждете, но ваши слова так и остаются неопубликованными? (ой блин, я же тоже так делаю на этом блоге – но это чтобы всем читателям не начали предлагать секс тойз из Германии или Русских жен)  Жаль, что некоторые люди бояться критики и не хотят слышать ее в свой адрес, причем я не критиковала автора блога, а именно саму компанию Ревлон. Я также надеюсь, что вы поймете следующее, не смотря на то, что я работаю в Клиник, я пользуюсь продукцией и других брендов, того же масс маркета, но сегодня я вычеркнула Ревлон из своего списка, пусть их вонючие лаки и отвратительный PhotoReady катятся в тартарары!

Всем отличного дня! Я знаю что мой день будет отличным!
