These beauty questions have been on my mind for awhile. They keep me up at night. Ok, not really. However, I wonder about them. Maybe you do too.
Why are the OG Naked palettes still $54?
The original Urban Decay Naked palette came out in 2011 or 2012 and I’m still waiting for it to drop in price. Maybe something is wrong with me but I don’t think it should be the same price as when it came out. The packaging alone doesn’t warrant it costing the same as the other ones. Naked 2, 3, and Smoky come in sturdy cases compared to the felt-covered magnetic case for the original.
Do you really need Ruby Woo by MAC?
I go back and forth on this one. It seems like it’s the red of all reds with makeup lovers and yet I’m kinda meh about it. Maybe I just missed the Ruby Woo train and in the meantime found some reds I like from other brands.
Why say something is for all skin tones when it’s clearly not?
This one irks me a lot because as a black woman who loves makeup and wants the process of finding something to be easier. At this point when I see words like “universal”, I know it’s an exaggeration. It’s still frustrating as a consumer though. There has to be another way to advertise without making a claim that leaves large groups of people out.
Why do people keep praising Great Lash?
So check it. I know some people like it. “One tube is sold every 1.7 seconds.” I just don’t think it’s that dope compared to other Maybelline mascaras. I think the nostalgia factor is high. It’s hard to break away from or criticize something you’ve always seen growing up or used your first little bit of money to buy. Or maybe I’m just a hater. I still side-eye magazines when it’s on their “best of” lists.
When is Sephora going to make the points money?
The point system currently is a scam. There’s no way the little samples they provide for 100 point perks are worth the $100 you have to spend to get them. In a world where Ulta Beauty gives you $3 to spend for 100 points, Sephora giving you a tiny moisturizer just isn’t cutting it.
