Yes LimeCrime. Continue to use grunge as a marketing tool for your business, because that’s totally not what grunge was against at all.
Yes, continue to use Kurt Cobain as the face of your new campaign. I’m sure if he were alive he would be totally cool being the face of a brand.
Grunge was about not giving a single fuck about your appearance.
Grunge was about not washing your hair for weeks on end because who gives a fuck.
Grunge was a giant fuck you to brands and businesses and their ideas of beauty and what was cool.
But no no, go ahead Doe Deere. Use it to market your business. Using the term “a colour worth burning at the stake for!” clearly didn’t phase you so why should this? Ugh.
She’s done as she usually does and just jumped on a trend with no respect for what it really means. It’s pretty much what I’d expect from Doe Deere.
UPDATE: So I just saw Does Instagram post. Apparently it’s not supposed to be a literal representation of the Grunge ‘look’ (ummm Grunge was a movement not a look) but a modern interpretation. Yeah no.
So I got a little shock last night when I was looking at buying a few new items from Makeup Academy. They wanted to charge me just over £16 for shipping. That’s right £16. Turns out it’s because of the shipping restrictions in the UK on nail polish. Once I’d removed the polish it dropped back to the ‘normal’ rate of £2.95.
It’s still ridiculous! Let’s break down the cost of shipping for nail polish from other brands.
Compared to all the others the charges are completely ridiculous. All these companies follow the shipping rules for nail polish in the UK and manage to do it cheaper.
You’re better off using that £16 and going to the closest town with a Superdrug for a day. That way you get your polish and a day out. Crazy charges for no good reason. Shame on you MUA.
