Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@ChescaCat  First: I’m relieved that security guards came to your rescue. ❤️ 

 

Next: I completely understand this. I was in baggy sweats when I was assaulted, and to this day I still get anxious when I wear baggy clothes. I know it’s an irrational reaction, especially since sexual predators aren’t really attracted to people’s appearance; it’s the opportunity to overpower someone that attracts them. Still, years later I can’t look at myself in baggy sweats without thinking “someone’s gonna see this as an invitation.” It doesn’t help that I also have an anxiety disorder (had it before this incident happened), but that’s a different (though related) topic. 

 

So when I say “it’s not red lipstick that attracted your attackers (and again, I’m so happy you were able to get help so they couldn’t get very far), it was simply their vile need to overpower you, regardless of how you happened to look that night,” I kinda feel like a hypocrite because I’m still trying to make myself fully accept that line of thought. But this doesn’t make it any less true. So I hope you’re able to wear red lipstick again with little or no fear. The lipstick’s not an invitation. There is no invitation. There’s only some a**hole’s power quest.

Okie Gucci! Is this a joke???? And the reviews are all from the ppl receive product for free.  That just kills the mood for me!!! And I thought you're classier than this.  Pass!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Personally, I'm kinda glad to see it. I don't find it particularly attractive, but sometimes beauty is about pushing the norms a bit. Celebrating beauty in everyone should be applauded. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@RGbrown Same!

 

This makes me very happy - I recall when Gucci first launched the lipstick it and posted this photo on their Instagram page.

 

There were some people commenting on the post that actually had that condition (I can't remember the name, but you're born without those teeth) and they were saying how glad they were to feel represented. One girl specifically said she had spent money she didn't have fixing her smile and that maybe if those images had been around when she was younger she wouldn't have.

 

Also on the comments were a lot of people calling the image many ugly names that I will not repeat. It's funny because there is this whole movement where we should embrace our differences, but it seems that a lot of people draw the line when it comes to teeth.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@blackkitty2014 I had the same reaction. Maybe this is a new trend - my parents are going to be so upset that they spent all that money on braces when Jabber Jaw teeth are the new "it" thing.

Spoiler
I'm just kidding. I know I was very fortunate to be able to have gotten braces growing up.

@niki172 thx for the gif. It cracked me up 😂🤣😘

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@blackkitty2014 I *may* have dated myself there, but when the shoe fits....😂😂.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@blackkitty2014 - I'm missing those same two teeth.  I got bridges and crowns after my braces came off.

Putting on the perfect face half awake in the morning and then getting in the car to go to work, looking in the mirror and I OOP-

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@AndreaNieves Yeah, I woke up super early this morning so I took the time to do a neutral eye look that in the past had appeared well blended and a little dewy.  Today it just looked flat once I got to work.  Upsetting - like, is the palette not how I remembered, do I need new brushes, or did I just do an awful job?!  Smiley Tongue

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

What is wrong with people? Two different clients of mine today (who I see on a regular basis) both grown men out of the blue said to me something along the lines of “You would be so much prettier if...” 🤦‍♀️🤯 In an office environment that would be sexual harassment but I don’t work in an office. I’m disgusted and deeply offended. It’s not okay to say things like that to someone. 

RE: Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@GG84 sorry you had to hear this utter BS. These sort of comments piss me off to no end.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Turds!

 

I love Janelle Monae, someone tried to feed her some crap and she was "I'm not for male consumption."

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@GG84Ug!! That's so inappropriate Smiley Mad Hope the rest of your week is better <3

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@GG84 I've been trying to think of some possible reason for their statements, but there just isn't.  I'm sorry you had to go through that not once but twice.  Here's to better days ahead!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@GG84That's so gross, I'm sorry that happened to you (and to anyone ever), much less at work- like dang yo I already have 1000 things I'd rather be doing and listening to your BS still managed to make the top of the list 🙄

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@GG84, that's pretty creepy.  😕  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@curlychiquita 

The downside of working in an industry all about vanity I suppose 🙄

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@GG84 A curt ‘Thank you I’ll keep that in mind if I’m ever looking to attract someone’ would shut that down real quick . 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface That's a good one! 

 

I'd like to say back, "You'd be so much more handsome if you kept your mouth shut," but then that's just sinking to their level, and letting them know they got to you.

My quick mouth gets me in trouble at times. I essentially at the end of the day work in sales through education. It’s a lot of smiling and taking it or losing the sale.
