I want to start off by saying thank you to my readers. I know a lot of you found me on Pinterest, a truly amazing tool, and have possibly enjoyed recreating my recipes or am I being overly presumptuous? Never the less, most of the views I get are for my blog on my diy make-up setter . It is extremely thrilling to see my blog being repinned all over and hearing people talk about how much money they will save by making the make-up setter. SHARE with me... No, okay.
With that being said, let me get into the title of this particular post, there are some dumb bitches out there in the world. We all know 'em, we all are guilty of being 'em at one point or another but I would just like to single out a couple people and I am sorry if it is you but seriously I can't hold my tongue any longer.
So I had this one lady comment saying that the setter made her face feel sticky and she asked what she could do. I didn't reply, I know that was a dick move but the answer was right there in my blog, she just had to read one more paragraph. When someone else did reply to her trying to help and said , "add some witch hazel and a little rubbing alcohol" though, I felt like I was a victim of PLAGIARISM!
Seriously, that was the answer and I was being too much of a cock to just repeat myself to this poor reader who just didn't read far enough into the post where I told her exactly what to do if it was sticky. Blame it on all the teachers who sent me back to my seat to read the chapter again, or rather for real this time, for taking out some passive aggressiveness on her. But as soon as I saw that someone else had replied to her using my very answer, I was all over that shit.
Of course I was kind about it because people actually read that post, and possibly the comments, so it's not like I can be a sarcastic ass about it, and say exactly what I am thinking, like I do on my facebook. I was kind and repeated the reasons why it could be sticky and shared my personal experiences with it, telling her I wore it all day mowing the lawn, and my make up still looked perfect and it wasn't sticky after adding the small amount of rubbing alcohol.
The tipping point today, though was when this other lady commented on the blog to tell me that baby oil was just glycerin and fragrance. You know, in all fairness, she may have been confused. I mean they are both clear liquids and have similar viscosities. I myself had to go and grab a bottle of baby oil and read the ingredients list just to make sure that I wasn't losing my fucking mind.
Sure enough, I had not, baby oil is still made from oil. Mineral oil and fragrance. Again, I commented and didn't even point out the fact that she was wrong, I held my tongue and applauded her for recognizing that mineral oil is actually a very useful beauty product. It is great for removing eye make up and other oil based make ups. But the problem with it is that lots of people find it clogs their pores. So I suggested using olive oil as it will moisturize successfully remove the make up and dirts and won't clog your pores.
You see, that was some quick thinking on my part, I know how to turn on the cheese when I need to. But the truth is, I joked around and made fun of this comment all damn day long. I still can't stop laughing at it. Not so much that she was wrong in thinking that it was glycerin but more because I was able to turn it around when all I really wanted to say was, "you stupid bitch... try mixing baby OIL and water together in a bottle and tell me how well it works out for you."
