I haven’t had anyone in real life say that to me, and if they did, I might later check my foundation to see if something went awry. I’d probably just say, “thanks for letting me know,” and get far, far away from that kind of a person, because people who say things to be hurtful aren’t ones I’d be around. Helpful is one thing, but snide and snarky, no thanks!

In certain ways, yes. I would say a mid-end brand is better positioned to really compete, because when you reduce price, you have to reduce costs somewhere else. You might not get the fancy packaging of high-end makeup, but I think the products themselves can compete. Many of the drugstore brands come from conglomerates that own high-end brands, and a lot of the technology that the high-end brand develops will trickle down to other brands within the parent company.

I’m very lucky that nobody has forbid me to wear it, but certainly there are looks that are more or less appealing. For instance, I know my dad isn’t keen on makeup/nails (especially red nails!), but I take it in jest rather than mean-spirited. If someone had a serious problem with it, I would try to explain how it makes me happy and I enjoy it.
