let’s play hide’n’sleep

Ok I’ll start

just kidding, i’ve been doing it all year

dejaa-ntendu asked: The thing is, nude is just the name of the color. You say "nude" and you think of that color. Just like how you say "red" and you think of that color. People come in way too many ranges of colors to say "nude" is anything but the color it's known as. Just use a color by a different name that fits.

makeup-madness:

What I’m getting at is that we shouldn’t see a light color of concealer called Nude and then that same product several shades darker called Espresso. Both are nude. But according to many brands, any shade darker than “nude” is a delicious food? Toffee, espresso, chestnut, cocoa. If we don’t want to call a darker shade Nude, let’s not call the lighter shade Nude either.

Representation is really important.

I co-sign this to death.

Lighter colours aren’t just nude. Light skin didn’t just usurp the nude category entirely. Cosmetics companies have also appropriated, on behalf of light skin, delicate, feminine names such as Petal (Benefit), Alabaster, Ivory and Natural (Bobbi Brown), Shell (Hourglass), and Beige (Estee Lauder).

Are you fucking serious that BEIGE indicates light skin? And then there’s Tan. Bobbi makes some “Tan” cover-up, which is presumably also designated for light skin that has gotten darker for the summer, before its wearer can revert to Sand or Ivory in cooler months.

And why don’t colors for dark skin have names of precious stones, instead of jungly, “exotic”, indulgent names. I’ve never seen a foundation for deep eggplant skin called amethyst or onyx. (I’ve actually never seen such a foundation at all, outside of theatre supply stores.) Fuck the names of trees and spices; where is my tiger’s eye, blood jasper, and garnet concealers? Where’s my damn rose petal, cello, silk, copper liquid foundations? And do you know how hard it is to think of brown items that are considered regal or feminine or valuable without being orientalist? I just tried now and I can barely think of any. We’re just not socialized to do so.

The apologist attitude for blatant facet of white supremacy has zero justification - this naming process is racist. The fact that literally every cosmetics retailer extant organizes these colors light-to-dark, and never the reverse, is indisputable deliberate racism.

topekat asked: A customer asked me to toast his bagel. "Can you toast it to about the color of your skin." Fuck off racist old dude. You can get the hell out of here.

You should have just set that shit on fire and thrown it outside.

Ew ew ew

You might look at this (the actual for-real million-dollar pool of a Goldman Scahs executive) and conclude that money can’t buy you taste. But you’d be wrong. Actually money can buy you taste: for instance, $18.95 gets you a copy of Ryka Aoki’s amazing He Mele A Hilo (A Hilo Song)

Don’t h8, Topside. That pool is bangin’ and you know it
