A Palette & A Partner - Week 15

Hi, Guys & Gals! I am so excited that I am stepping into week 15 of this series and I am really getting a decent amount of use out of my products. I am even more encouraged because I have introduced lip products and foundations into the weekly rotation. That small adjustment has lead to the decluttering of two foundations already. That's super important because now I can sanitize those foundations and donate them to women who are in need, so that's an amazing result of this rotation effort.

So, let's  get something out of the way. I need to address a palette that is in this week's rotation. The Beauty Killer by Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I do not support this company nor endorse any of the owner's behavior. As a person of color, I think it is important to stand strong against oppression and the degradation of minority groups, even if the person who is inflicting hate is marginalized themselves. I purchased this palette before I knew anything about Mr. Star and I am confident in my research that he is not someone I feel comfortable giving my hard earned coins to, however, I have the palette now, and I am going to use it. I am going to rock these colors on my beautiful brown face because I can and because nothing should impede me from expressing myself. Returning the palette would actually give him the victory. Have you ever been in a room with someone who dislikes you? Don't ever leave the room....strut into that room with your head up and chest out and own that piece. That's what I am going to do....
