So that MAC free lipstick giveaway was a total disaster
It was like Black Friday, but lamer
by Amanda Ross
When something sounds too good to be true, it almost always is. That’s why if a guy texts me “I had a really good time with you tonight :)” after a date, I immediately change my number and dye my hair because he’s almost definitely going to either break my heart or try to cut off my skin and wear it. You know?
That’s why when MAC announced it was giving away free full tubes of their signature lipsticks for something called National Lipstick Day, I was skeptical. There’s always a catch.
And there totally was! People were so psyched about the $17 value that there were all-night campouts and straight-up stampedes to get their hands on a free lippie. While I understand nearly $20 for a lipstick is a lot and it hurts my soul, you know what hurts more? Getting punched in the tit while some old binch rips the last Velvet Teddy out of your hands.
Look at this line to get into a Macy’s with a MAC inside, well before the store actually opened:

Apparently, though, the promo’s total lack of fine print failed to mention that the lipsticks given away were rejects from a flopped rock-and-roll collection:

Seriously, look at this line. I couldn’t get a queue this big if I was giving away blowjobs at a bus station:

To paraphrase Maxine Waters, I hope y’all spend the rest of the weekend reclaiming your time.
Fuck your unicorns and mermaids, I want this new DRAGON highlighter
Fiery glow is for Khaleesis only
by Amanda Ross
If I had a dollar for every unicorn-themed product launch this past year, I'd have enough money to buy all the unicorn-themed products launched last year. What I'm trying to say is, it's a lot. And there's nothing wrong with the absolute avalanche of unicorn and mermaid-themed lipsticks and highlighters and whatever else. Some of…
I’m calling it: The era of highlight is officially over
RIP to the fashionable phase for my oily flesh
by Katie Way
There is a point that every trend reaches where it becomes so overdone that it is stupid. And I regret to inform all you Glossier devotees and Fenty Beauty converts that when it comes to highlighter, we're there. It's over, we killed itWe were handed the highlighter trend and we, frankly, abused it. Highlighter morphed…
