Remember the times growing up I would PRAY for my freckles to go away? Or the times when I was MERCIFULLY TEASED because I have freckles covering my face and arms? And for once, I am not exaggerating when I say COVERED. (Spoiler alert: kids are MEAN AF).
But NOW the new thing is stick on freckles….
Stick on freckles. Stick. On. Freckles.
WHAT IN THE FRESH HELL IS THIS?!
Recap: for the majority of my almost 30 years on this earth, my freckles were things I would try to get rid of and were not viewed as something that was conventionally beautiful. And now they’re a god damn beauty trend.
Look at this – it’s even being marketed as “the new makeup”. This is pretty much the equivalent of wearing colored contacts. Everyone knows you’re faking it, its usually horribly obvious, is it really worth it? And as if it wasn’t obnoxious as it is, they come in metallic versions. So you can look like you are going to a festival all the time. K.
Apparently they work in a similar manner to temporary tattoos. I say apparently, because as I have natural GOD GIVEN freckles, I have no need for these (for the record, NO ONE DOES). They last for 24-48 hours (or more if you don’t wash your face for a while – I’m not here to judge). The kicker? These things run for $15-$25! You know what you can get with that money instead? A lot of Starbucks, for starters.
My final thoughts: if Mother Nature didn’t give you these face stars, trying to fake it isn’t a good look.
