Somewhere along the line, we as beauty consumers lost our sense of humour, and everything has become a cause, and Tarte is bearing the brunt of it. We all talk a big game about be inclusive and understanding, without jumping to conclusions. Justice is fair, let the system work, be a good person etc etc etc.
It’s just makeup. I can’t say this enough times, IT’S JUST MAKEUP, IT’S NOT THAT SERIOUS. No[ one is going to die, and we aren’t curing cancer.
Tarte posted a picture on April Fools day of this ‘Release’ and people went MENTAL.
I have never seen so many ridiculous comments on a post, to the point where the company decided it best to just pull down the photo. A few things
- It was April Fools, lots of brands ended up posting joke releases/sales etc. That’s what April Fools is about, its just about a quick jab of comedy or fun. PUR posted a sale for 100% off site wide until noon. No one came after them
- Even if you do like the palette and you wish they would actually release it, now with the people so angry that it;s not real Tarte will actually put it into productions.
- The name was ‘icy betch’ Of course this wasn’t real! Tarte would never release something like that. They aren’t UD or Nars, where their naming conventions are ridiculous.
If you want to see some tea, go check out the comments on Trendmoods update post on this palette. People are outraged that Tarte was “lying’ ‘false advertising’ ‘this kind of a teaser is just NOT funny’
Get over it guys. It was a joke.
