Unpopular Opinions Makeup Tag

First a bit of housekeeping: congratulations to Instagram user: @ _nicola.xo. You're the lucky winner of our last October Instagram giveaway. Please send me ( an email with your contact number.

Check out the creators of this tag: Nobody's Beauty Guru and Ola Quinn.

Let's get to it.

1. Popular makeup product you don't like.

I only realised this year that I'm not a fan of the matte M.A.C Paint Pots. I know a lot of people use them as eyeshadow bases/primer but they just make my eyelids look textured and dry. I tried wid dem but it ain't fuh me.

2. Popular makeup brand that everyone else seems to hate but you love.

This is tough. Ammmm I know NARS made people really mad when they lost their cruelty free status so do they count? They still get my coins πŸ˜”

3. Makeup collab you didn't like or were not interested in.

I don't check for most collabs but at the tippy top of that list is anything to do with Fraudlyn Hill. Dem catch me wid Champagne Pop; dem caan trick me agen.

4. Popular makeup step that you never do.

A very common answer to this question is baking and I'm on that list too. But what I really wanna say is I don't even understand the need to put a mobbaton of concealer under yuh eye. That whole triangle thing is total wastage. Another one: oily skin people over powder their skin. Adequate skin prep will do the job folks.

5. Popular beauty influencer you don't subscribe to/watch (this is hot shady tea tho lol).

Like most most people that have done this tag, I don't watch many popular beauty influencers. But if it's tea yuh want πŸ˜† I unsubscribed from Nicole (Young, Wild and Polished) eons ago. Actually I watched one of her videos recently for the first time in yearsssss. When she did buddying up wid PayPal MUA and you is a big woman tuh dese chirren. And what ever happen to she and Kathleen Lights friendship? πŸ‘€ Another one I don't rate is de WhatWouldLizzyDo. At one point it felt like every other video was her crying and apologising bout some bs she do. Yuh mean somebody would have to tell you that selling things you got in PR is in bad taste?! C'mon Sis (I don't watch the one that says that often either πŸ˜‚)

6. Popular makeup product/brand that you don't use/support anymore.

It would be a lie to say Tarte since I recently bought their Knockout Tingling Treatment as per Stephanie Nicole's recommendation. I guess that leaves Kat Von Polio. It is one thing to have unorthodox  - what I truly think is just attention seeking but hey what do I know - beliefs but when you gine plaster unsafe things in public knowing impressionable minds follow you?! That's straight irresponsible. And the real tea is, it's our money that allows her to live this unorthodox, privileged, I-am-better-than-you-mere-mortals lifestyle. She clearly is too good fuh my money soul.

7. A makeup trend that you have no interest in trying.

This asian inspired bold lips in the centre but faded on the edges ting. It looks great in the pictures but I doubt it would suit me.

8. Makeup product that was better in theory than when you used it. Either swatched better or worked better on others than on you.

Now I may change my mind about this but after one use Imma have to say Tarte Shape Tape. How do people use this under their eyes? Thing had me dry ennuf.

Dear Shane Dawson, SYM!

...wid a straw.
Imagine: pretending to care about a community, claiming to share similar interest, designing a cash grab to fleece said community, make millions off products and merchandise (did I mention that this charlatan never even posted one single video using his palette?)...then turning around and blasting the same community for loving negativity and drama. After using drama to create hype for his mediocre "docu-series" and gaudy products. Boy go and drink bleach yuh *redacted* parasite. The same energy you have for lambasting an entire sub-set of YouTube - that made you richer - keep fuh nasty minded, gutter snipe friends. I hope you truly are "done with the drama and tea". You should be done with YouTube period! Yuh *redacted* fraud! I particularly hope that everyone can now see through your "I'm so sensitive" charade and never put another cent of their hard earned money in your condescending, manipulative pockets. You are a disgrace.  
And jus…
