Welcome to another week of The Raised Eyebrow! I’ll admit, this week was a tough one for me as I didn’t really come across something that had me channeling Dr. Evil of the Austin Powers series. Until I went drugstore makeup shopping.
If there is one thing that you’ll definitely find when it comes to buying cosmetic products in drugstores, it’s that companies will always throw these numbers at your face, claiming that “X % saw immediate improvement” or ” X % soft, hydrated lips” with the product on display. I remember seeing these types of claims when my cousin and I were checking out the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter and one of the claims was “In fact, 94% of women’s lips felt were softer, smoother, and instantly hydrated” (directly from Revlon.com).
That got me to buy the product because I wanted a lipstick that didn’t make my lips drier than they already were.
You can tell where I’m going with this week’s entry.
