2012-04-26: NOW WITH SHINY UPDATE AND EVEN MORE LOL!
A MakeupAlley Green Board LOL:
Mkay… Or, a beautiful example of cultish belief, hoisting oneself by one’s own petard, and a host of other follies.
people can find negative things to say about any line as nothing is perfect but at the end of the day only those with truly fussy skin understand how nice it is to find a more “natural” line that works for your skin. With the results I have gotten I will be using for many years to come and anyone I have turned on to it loves the line as well. All comes down to personal opinion.
ROFL. For more on personal opinion and
being having arseholes, see amongst others:
- rational argument and on being reasonable (2011-07)
- in praise of folly: an amusing deodorant and its entertaining defender (2011-08: Elmira Gulch, an Éminence Organics fan, here)
- parabens: the truth is out there (2012-01: bcakes, another Éminence Organics fan)
Well, and who doesn’t love to see a nice bit of idiocracy in action? Voting on facts and truth, never goes out of fashion.
And then we got this nice resumption of the
only those with truly fussy skin understand
theme, truly beauteous, outstanding, and poetic:
having such fussy skin […] when so little works for me
as opposed to having skin that is merely sensitive or irritable or intolerant, and by “merely” I mean just medically, scientifically, experimentally-provably so, in, you know, mere concrete physical reality. And by “having” I mean “cursed with it from birth, thank you genetics, and would dearly love to have the skin of a rhino or at least so I can forget about it and get on with more important things in life.” As opposed to, you know, being a special precious unique gifted flower, defined by what precious special unique products I have to use that work for me.
and then there’s, um,
at least the line isn’t full of chemicals
But—look!!!—it’s a fluffy kitten!
And isn’t that a chocolate éclair I spy over there?
And, do my eyes deceived me, or is that a nice cocktail, my very favouritest of favourite cocktails, that’s just magically materialised right in front of me?
I can’t be arsed debating idiocy with idiots. But am as ever grateful for the gift of a good giggle: thanks, o enlightened eminent ones! Besides, it’s time for a pre-dinner drink here in Vancouver.
[UPDATE THE NEXT DAY: wow, what a freaky coincidence: it’s time for pre-dinner drinks here again this very minute as I’m updating this post! OMG, that’s awesome. Yes, it’s always time for a pre-dinner drink, anywhere. And even just in Vancouver. Except while drinking with dinner, and if imbibing post-prandially.]
Peace out to all, even poor Eminently Organic fools, and maybe just maybe
This post is dedicated to the preservation of the sanity of the repressed minority of sane rational people on MakeupAlley’s Green Board,
and to the continuing struggle to preserve said board’s reputation and to maintain its focus (part of its subtitle) on “eco-friendly living.” All that ethical stuff that doesn’t count, or rather, that is considered irrelevant on pretty much every other MUA board.
See, problem is that some Green-boarders seem to be not just lacking in sanity and brains in general, poor dears, but to have rather poor literacy skills, marked by an inability to distinguish the letter “c” from “g.”
Sweeties: it’s eco-friendly living. Not ego-friendly.
AND ANOTHER UPDATE: in response to BayRidge’s comment—
The only reason I would think twice is that it seems there were some shady business practices that went on between Eminence & Ilike Organic Skincare.
I started looking into this when I noticed that the products between the 2 lines are just about identical. It bothers me to think that one company might have stolen the formulations of another one, given that these are small family owned enterprises (we’re not talking the P&G of the world). If anyone has any information one way or another, I would love to see it!
Another POV on the ingredients used (n/a) – from 2010 so maybe the ingredients have been upgraded?
but at the end of the day, if it works for you & your skin is happy, go for it.
—we get this:
I rest my case re. eco-/ego-centricity. Can’t read; or, can’t read and process and retain and understand information. Lacks cognitive capacities in concentration and comprehension. But I wonder, given the use of “ignorance is bliss,” if someone has been reading over here?
Last word to a wise friend and irregular correspondent:
Another angle to consider would be the fact that Eminence is so prominently featured in vapid rags such as [No More Dirty Looks, etc.]. The readership for those tends to be “special” and may lean more towards the naturally stupid than the actively trolling.
Ending with some cuddly friendly green-ness:
