  • Agust D-amn you all

    You should try and create a lipstick Saf! And sure I find your 'melting lipsticks together' series extremely entertaining, but I would love to see you go all out on creating your own custom shade and formula (that isn't made by someone else) Kind of like when you made soap! :^D.

    I will say that in the video you seem to equade prositution in the West with Geisha culture in the East, and that is not true. Geisha culture is a form of high entertainment involving dance, traditional tea services, and traditional dress. Traditional Geisha culture generally looks down upon Geishas who offer "extra services" or prostitution. Some Geishas offering these services famously lead to the misconception in the West that Geishas are prostitutes, which is an insult to the culture. Fun fact: Geishas have their Obi 's tied in the back, as is traditional, and they are very elaborate and hard to tie by themselves, which is why they often have a dresser to help them. A Geisha who may also be a prostitute may untraditionally tie their Obi in the front, as it is easier to get on and off between clients. Other than that, a wonderful video!

    for the record, kabuki was a little scandalous especially in it's beginnings, but geisha were never scandalized. I would say it held less "scandalous" connotations and more like an ornamental performer type of vibe for Edo Japan

    Matt liquid lipsticks are a life saver. Nothing sticks to them like gloss and they come in a gloss bottle so no lid to just slip off when I don’t want it to.
