Sorry if this breaks any guidelines. I’m a primary time poster. I simply joined as a result of I’m actually starting my make-up journey. I bought the NYX final utopia palette as a result of it was inexpensive and had numerous shades to play with. Properly, I used it and I’m allergic to possible a number of shades. Turns on the market are pressed pigments that I didn’t notice was even a factor as an individual new to make up. I’ll take accountability for not swatching earlier than utilizing, however I do really feel like it is a worthwhile dialogue about promoting within the make-up neighborhood.
I shared a video of how Ulta has this palette present up of their search outcomes underneath eye shadow palettes. Then the warning for 10 shades is hidden behind a drop down. That is under a full detailed description saying it’s for the eyes.
Then, the packaging itself intermingles all the shades collectively like they’re equal, and says nothing on the entrance about potential risks. I did see the celebrities on the again, however I 100% thought they have been detailing shimmer shades. The warning textual content may be very small.
I simply discover this all actually sketchy and like a con to promote extra pigment selection. In the event that they’re not all meant for the eyes, then why not label that on the FRONT of the package deal. It’d be straightforward to prepare it into “eyes” and “spotlight.”
I’m certain many individuals is not going to have points with these pressed pigments, however I did and it sucks. I’m a consumer expertise designer, so I actually professionally work to keep away from this type of deception on web sites and packaging. Sure, they each have warnings, however they each conceal it and actually downplay it as a secondary label.
What else do manufacturers conceal in plain sight? Hopefully I can nonetheless grasp eye shadow regardless of my allergy to those pressed pigments.
Edit: I forgot to say that the palette itself has 22 shades referred to as out for being unsafe for the eyes. Ulta solely says 10 are. Once more, extraordinarily deceptive for my part.
