As a Sephora employee, I hear a lot of unpopular makeup opinions. I also get the luxury of trying every new product that rolls its way onto the black tile. But before I was a Sephora doll, I was a CVS drugstore beauty die-hard, and after you swatch enough liquid lipsticks and shimmer shadows, you start to wonder what that $20 price difference really boils down to. Is buying drug store makeup bad for you or your skin? Does using drugstore brands make you "bad" at makeup?

As the world reached its second millennium twenty years ago, the West was in the midst of an unprecedented and exponentially increasing gulf between producer and consumer. As most assemblage and creation of clothing continue to move in large swathes from the domestic to the international sphere, customers purchasing garments experience a distance between these textiles and their own lives. This results in a desire for an individual story attached to these mass-produced clothes at the level of aesthetics in high fashion and materiality of ready-to-wear apparel. As we transition further into the 21st century, internet platforms widen this interaction between producer and consumer. Coupled with individual story-based digital architecture as well and a push towards secondhand buying due to climate anxieties, having a story behind the garments you’re wearing seems more important than ever, even if that story isn’t yours.
Long ago when we were each a young child, I’m willing to bet you heard your parents trying to bribe you to eat vegetables by threatening you with the loss of dessert? I myself have done this many times as a parent, have you? This common strategy may backfire and increase your child's resistance to eating vegetables or other healthy foods. As a child I remember hating vegetables not giving them a chance, because of being forced to eat them just so I could eat my cake too. It has instilled it into our brains that dessert is better than vegetables that’s for sure. As I got older I realized how many vegetables I use to turn my nose up at that I actually enjoy and prefer over any type of sweets or desserts. So here I am with my unpopular opinion to many and ready to debunk that dessert are better than your veggies.
