Walmart in the USA has a new product they are launching aimed at young girls from the ages of eight to twelve. It’s a makeup line called, Geo-Girl. Anti-aging products, foundation, lipstick, blusher, nail polish, and the list goes on. There will be sixty-nine products in all available on their shelves Feb 21st.

Eight year olds? Are you freakin’ kidding me?

It’s not aimed for dress up. The head executives have stated that it will replace the Mary Kay and Ashley makeup and that they are selling this to children to create future consumers and to turn a profit.

They actually admit it? What f**king slime balls.

Parents should not stand for this and boycott them if they market this to eight year olds. It’s bad enough that young girls all ready have body image issues and this is going to make matters worse. Why is society making our kids feel like they need this crap? Children do NOT need anti-aging makeup. They aren’t even teenagers yet. It’s disgusting! What’s next? They are sexualizing our children.

Is this acceptable to you?

It’s bad enough that a large percentage of Walmart’s clothing is made by children in third world countries, now this?

It makes me so angry that people get all bent out of shape over animal cruelty but when it comes to something important pertaining to our own children people turn a blind eye.

It hasn’t come to Canada yet and I hope it never does.

SHAME ON YOU, WALMART!

This was a free write activity my friend and I had done the evening of the 31st… enjoy? I wonder if MAC has more than just a 100 piece eye shadow palette with more color choices than they had available last week. Oh, I bet Urban Decay has a new promotion pack for some primer and stack and a half of lip gloss! I just can’t wear the Smashbox cream powder anymore because it makes my skin break out, but I’ll still recommend it to people who aren’t nearly as savvy as me about cosmetics. Hmmm, should I wear the liquid eye liner today or wait, none; I’ll just wear a boat load of mascara! How many different color eye shadows can I wear at once, maybe four of five? Oh girl, you could totally pull off wearing that black or any dark eye shadow, even bright colors! Let’s see, I have at least 100 different shades of lip color and I still can’t find one that I want to wear. Maybe I’ll just mix a few colors together and slather it on really thick and shiny, after all, I’m ME. Make up is so very important to me; I can’t think of a time that I haven’t worn it. I need the mask to survive in any public place and maybe I’ll catch some looks from potential men.
