Child Destroys $1000 of Makeup! G.T.F Over It

At this point in the game if you are on social media and have EVER looked at a beauty related topic, I am certain your Facebook or Twitter algorithm has forced this article on you, with it’s epic click bait title.

Yeah I did it too. Deal with it.

If you know me, or have been around for awhile you know my feelings on children and parenting well are pretty set in stone. I support anyone who wants to have children but for reasons like the above, this life is not for me.

There are multiple issues why this article and the mass amount of coverage has frustrated me beyond reason.

  1. Why is this news? Is there nothing else going on in this world that idownload.jpgs more important than a child hand smashing some testers at a makeup store? If that’s the case, Trump must be gone, world hunger is solved, and the Middle East has found peace. Wait…. I didn’t wake up in that world. Did you?
  2. The headline is miss-leading. It reads as though a child walked into a Sephora, grabbed palettes off the display and smashed them onto the ground in a fit of rage over the lack of the right cerulean blue crayon to colour in that duck they are working on. – I would be pretty pissed too kid…BUT This is not what happened. Said child ruined testers. Testers that were already written off, and are sent to the store, to be tested. I have seen some adults do worse work on testers, than this.
  3. Should the parent have been watching the child? Of course they should be. That goes without saying. Does that mean these mothers, fathers, cousins, brothers, sisters, former roommates should not be able to go shopping for that they need? No. That’s ridiculous. Settle down twitter. Don’t tell people when they can and can’t shop and with who. Mind your own damn business, and please refer to item #2. Capture1.PNG

4. This is a teaching opportunity for parents, children, and staff. There is NO reason the parent shouldn’t have been paying attention to the child this long. Please… pay more attention. The child should learn to ask to play with anything on display. It might have stopped some of this damage from occurring, the parent could have easily explained they were in fact, not finger paints. (For a toddler anyway, they are definitely finger paints for me).  As for the store employees…. how did no one notice this happening? This is your store, your place of work. Have some pride, explain to the child what they are doing. Would you let someone steal from you? I would damn well hope not. The idea is to be on the floor and paying attention to your customers and what they are doing in your store.

Underrated Products Summer 2017

The true start of Canadian summer is upon us, when the weather goes from cold enough for a jacket in the morning, and hot enough to run naked through the streets of Toronto in the afternoon.

What does that have to do with this post? Nothing. Just something I wanted to call out because I feel like running naked through the streets is wildly underrated.

With that said, here are some products I feel have been very underrated this year, or have genuinely surprised me and I find myself reaching for this summer.

The Most Impressive Liquid Lipstick EVER

There are certain things in life that I am sure of. Some of them are listed below

  • dogs are the best
  • there is not an eye shadow palette on the planet,  I don’t immediately want to stick on my face in some fashion
  • If it’s sparkly I want to touch it
  • ABH has THE BEST liquid lipsticks on the planet.

All of these things are still true. Until today, where my world was rattled by a new liquid lipstick formula. Continue reading “The Most Impressive Liquid Lipstick EVER”

Why I am Retiring from Ipsy

**** Giveaway For the Power of Makeup  Here***

It’s been a long road with Ipsy, I believe close to two years. All good things must come to an end. Especially when they stop being a good thing.

Check out my video for my final Ipsy unbagging and reasons for cancelling.

I have switched over to Boxycharm which I do find a much better deal, and it gives me the opportunity to try things I would not have had the chance to otherwise.

If you haven’t seen it yet here are some examples of  Boxy Charm boxes!
