Beauty Annoyances, Facts & Mysteries

beauty_facts

From time to time I pick up different beauty facts and discoveries that just stay with me. So today I thought I would share a few that you may find interesting. 

I also thought I may throw in some general beauty annoyances for good measure!

Mysteries 

 Barry M is owned by 66 year old Barry Mero and looks like this.

Chanel cosmetics is in fact the sister brand of Bourjois... not the other way round like a lot of people believe! Bourjois launched in 1863 and 61 years later Coco Chanel approached the owner of Bourjois to create the first ever line of perfumes. Bourjois & Chanel are now solely owned by the Wertheimer brothers.

Sally Hansen isn't a real person. I really did envisage Sally to be a slender lady with a blonde perm and a pearl necklace... dreams shattered. 

Annoyances  

Enhanced eyelashes in mascara ads... just why?! However long this is allowed it will annoy me. Utterly ridiculous.

When conditioner, moisturisers and other non-foaming products (that would never contain sulfates) state they're Sulfate-free to appear more 'natural'.

Not looking quite right? That will be forgetting to apply mascara! Doesn't happen often but when it does it's a "how did that happen" moment.

Facts 

Nestle (known for selling Coffee/Chocolate) own 1/4 of L'Oreal.

Essie most expensive nail polish, 'I Do' costs $55,000 and is made from powdered platinum - crazy and pointless!

Estee Lauder own a lot of big cosmetic & skin care brands - MAC, Bobbi Brown, Tom Ford, Smashbox, Clinique, Orgins, Jo Malone.
 
Hope you liked this random post! 

Fee xo.
