Lighter & Curler: A Journey


Have any of you noticed that the people of our generation (late-teens to mid-twenties) kind of love glorifying financial irresponsibility? Like we’ll see funny memes going all “RIP my bank account” or post a picture of a literally homeless person and be all “me after the Sephora sale”. I mean it was cute the first couple of times but we can’t complain that older people label us as being entitled and un-independent then turn around and basically create this whole culture of irresponsibility.

Anyway, today is going to be the first installation of our Dead Or Alive: Makeup Version series where we take two (or more!) makeup products– one expensive, one cheap– and basically do a little compare and contrast. I know, my propensity towards groundbreaking and original ideas astounds me, too.

Let us kick things off with a little battle of the eyebrow pencils, shall we? It’s Shu Uemura versus Silkygirl. Get ready…. FIGHT!
