Why I won't read your post about the latest releases (& Why I won't write one, either)


*WARNING* This post may (will) offend. Don't @ me.

I have an extensive make up collection compared to my non-blogger/non-make-up-lover friends, but probably a modest collection compared to other bloggers. I am proud to say I use almost all of my make up but I know a lot of small to medium bloggers don't. Why do we have SO much more than the average consumer?

Because we are constantly writing and reading posts about new releases. Constantly buying that new Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in a nude pretty damn similar to several we already own because we KNOW it is guaranteed to take a good picture that will rake in the likes.  Or feeling shit because we haven't bought the eye shadow palette that the whole of Youtube is taking about. Or even worse - buying the new releases (every fucking shade of a range of lipstick including the green and purple that you KNOW you will never wear) just to write a swatches post/first impressions and never touch them again. Desperate to get on that PR list.

It's too easy to get sucked into the world of must-haves and wants that you don't need, trying to keep up with everyone else, or even worse trying to keep up appearances of a person that you are not with products you don't want or use.

Most bloggers, myself included, are not practicing make up artists and a lot a lot a lot of people don't do much more than a browny/reddy/bronzy smokey eye, moving into the pinky peach tones when they became trendy. (Not this gal, gimme a neon green halo eye). What purpose does owning 23598 eye shadow palettes serve? Not to mention a Z-palette full of MAC, ABH and MUG singles of the exact same shades we have amongst our collection of palettes.

I'm not here to judge believe it or not, because I am as guilty as impulse buying a product that everyone is talking about as the next gal, but I now make sure I'm doing it for the right reasons. It's a learning curve.

Because I want that palette because I don't have those colours. Because that lipstick line is my favourite formula and I don't mind another nude in the perfect formula. Even because that perfume bottle will look lovely on your dressing table and it will make you smile. Or because you are a collector and you just want to own it.

Please can we have less of because it would make a good Tati Westbrook style WTF post. Or because that jumpsuit fits our Instagram theme. Or to be ahead of the curve and review every colour while people are still interested (knowing full well you won't use that navy liquid lipstick after you swatch and review it). Let's stop having oodles of make up collecting dust and going bad - especially when animals are suffering for a great deal of it. But that's another argument.

I wanna read posts about your old favourite palettes and why you love them and what you do with them. I don't care if the boots in your #ootd are this season or 4 years ago - I wanna see your personal style. And I want to read genuine reviews about products you have picked up because you were interested, not because every other bugger is reviewing them because, lets be honest, in a sea of the exact same posts swooning over pigment and blendability the majority of posts unfortunately get lost to the big bloggers. Be different. Don't follow the trends. Break the "good blogger" rules. Let me read about what floats YOUR boat, not what's floating the rest of the world's.

  2. I started playing at simply free online slots after reading reviews from other players and I see that it’s not for nothing. Judging by the number of reviews on the Internet, it seems that only the lazy one did not play here)) Well, by the number of reviews and topics on the forums one can definitely say that this is one of the most popular players.

  3. I know this is an old post, but I couldn't help but read and relate.
    I don't want to play the age card, but I honestly think that I'm at a point where I feel less of a desire to follow. This is definitely the case more so with beauty products. I'm a simple lady and get already overwhelmed just going into a shop to purchase my necessities. I'm definitely just doing me, for me. :)

  13. Get ex back | fix broken relationship.
    I just got my husband back through the help of genuine love spell caster dr unity. My name is Emily Sarah am from Tx,USA. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr unity . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity for help now..Here his contact..WhatsApp him: +2348055361568 ,

  14. I am so happy to share this fantastic testimony of mine. My life has changed round completely in 48hours. I can see myself in the mirror and smile. I have confidence in myself and my abilities for the first time in ages. I have my boyfriend back in my life with the help of Dr Oniha. He said sorry 24 hours after the spell was created. He said he realised that he never really wanted to break up and he could not handle emotional baggage I was carrying around all the time. He said that he thought he was the negative influence on my life and thought it best to leave. He said it was hard that I kept talking about the past all the time. We have both forgiven each other. I have money in my pocket that is my own at last. (My compensation cheque came through. I was told it was months away. I am living proof of what Dr Oniha can do. I thank you so much Dr Oniha for the wonderful thing you did in my relationship. I am so happy now. With your help we were both able to see and speak the truth to each other. I never thought a spell could help a couple before. I am very pleased to contact you and initiate all this to happen. Anyone who has a relationship problem can contact Dr Oniha.

  15. I'm so excited my broken Marriage has been restored and my husband is back after he left me and our 2 kids for another woman. After 8 years of marriage, me and my husband have been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me and moved to be with another woman. I felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. I tried to be strong just for the kids but I could not control the pains that tormented my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because I was really in love with my husband. Every day and night I think of him and always wish he would come back to me, I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Oniha can help get ex back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it, then he did a (Love spell) for me. 48 hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he misses me and the kids so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me and the kids. Then from that day, our Marriage was now stronger than how it was before, All thanks to Dr Oniha.I will continue to tell everyone about how your spell works Dr Oniha because you are a God sent to me. You can also contact him if you need help to solve your problem, he will be of help to you.
