Annette’s Makeup Corner

Post by Lavender_Buns » Tue Aug 13, 2019 2:46 pm

I was surprised when I couldn’t find a thread for her, if there is one please point me in the right direction lol. I find her to be hard to tolerate lol. I can’t be the only one.

Yaaaaaaahs! Thankyou for this!

SHE IS SO ANNOYING!

She actually reminds me of georgia harris, but even more annoying if that's possible. I watched like two videos a while ago and then was out lol

What I remember most getting my goat at the time was her extreme snobbery - "I won't even try drugstore eyeshadows because I know they'll be crap". Only poor workmen blame their tools, bitch.

Yes! She comes off incredibly snobby and like she feels like she’s doing everyone a favor by making content. I can’t even hate watch her because she bothers me so much lol.

I'm glad to see a thread on her. I am subscribed to her and like her for the most part, but like with most beauty gurus there are things about her that annoy me. But I'd never dare to post anything on their videos out of fear of receiving a snotty or dismissive reply lol.

Anyways. What I dislike most about her is her essentially willfully ignorant attitude towards makeup. She never cares about the behavior of brand owners, or brand ethics, and justifies it by saying makeup is her happy place. Like... it's my happy place, too. But I cannot imagine never thinking critically about the brands or people I support. That really reeks of privilege to me and a "my enjoyment of things is more important than anything else" attitude. :?

Another particular thing is I remember her saying in a video with that godforsaken Jawbreaker palette from JSC is that she would not have bought it if it was released by, e.g. Violet Voss; but she got it bc her Jeffree Star videos always get a lot of views. :/ She still has only like 13k subscribers. YouTube is not her fulltime job yet. Getting things just for that seems pretty disingenuous. Though I don't know. Maybe I'd be speaking differently if I had my own YouTube channel and was making that AdSense money. :D

The worst part about this is that she keeps making 10 looks videos with only these palettes. It's always "indie brands this, indie brands that" until it's time to get views and make money and suddenly Jeffree Star Cosmetics is more worthy of such a high-effort video (I know he's technically indie as in independent, but he's also mainstream).

And that godawful Morphe collab palette! Christ on a cracker! I know her makeup taste well enough she would not look at this palette twice if she didn't have a YouTube channel. At least Jawbreaker had her kind of color story.

I think my dislike of Jeffree Star is shining through here :D But I promise this is about Annette. I just don't trust people who obsessively buy his shit. And then justify it with "iTs JuSt MaKeUp. CrItiCaL tHiNkInG wHo???" :|

There's probably more things I've been annoyed by, I just can't remember right now. :roll: I'll make sure to keep this thread active and look forward to reading other opinions :D

^^^ Yup. As soon as someone features JS on their channel they are dead to me. Likewise KVD (although we don't have that prob nowadays as she is the current hated brand de rigeur).
But how is Jeffree acceptable and Kat isn't? ? Pray tell? They were besties for years for a reason (- lol, racism).
Anyway, I've has to break up with people I otherwise love (Theresa Is Dead I'm looking at you) for this reason, but so be it because unlike these bitches I'm not into selective outrage when it suits me and laissez-faire when it suits my wallet.

Anyway this isn't even my primary reason for finding Annette annoying (she is a snobby cow) but it is yours and I completely support and endorse your annoyance. 😆

I totally agree with both of you above. I was introduced to her by a friend who also has a channel and I went to watch Annette and could not believe how much of a snob she was. I hate her mindset of “iTs JuSt MaKeUp, fUcK YoUr FeELingS”. It’s incredibly privileged and I don’t fuck with people like that at all.

Wowie there's a thread for everyone

She's quite annoying and her makeup never matches that ugly raspberry colored hair. She seems to be the type to wear "color" to "stick it to the man" and it fails miserably

Around the 4 and a half mark this bitch just said that she wouldn't bother looking up names of the eyeshadows if it doesn't say so on the package...stellar content

Her blush and her contour situation is trash as well

But I honestly didn't see what was wrong with the stupid eyeshadow palette. Her perception of color theory is terrible



She really thinks this palette screams "neutral"? she's dumb as hell

She reminds me of color shadows youtubers like Lucia Tepper, Angelica Nyqvist, Porcelain, Nineties LoveChild, etc, it's like they don't understand that some people don't want to look like a drag. Annette idea of a makeup style is to put random colors barely blended on lids expecting to look ok.

But I like Amy Loves Makeup, her makeup looks are a bit coherent and flattering most of the time.

I don't care about youtubers still using J* or KVD, but most of them happen to have an unlikable personality.

Annette personal J* palette make me laugh, the colors don't seem to work together and the 2 purple shades are almost the same:

(My first time quoting - I hope it'll be okay...)

Haha, my thoughts exactly. I'm starting to get tired of Annette doing lukewarm/negative first impressions. I don't seek out smaller BGs just so I can get the same easy content that so many bigger BGs pump out. i have little use for first impression videos with products that i'll never see the BG use again, especially if the person is neither enthusiastic about the product or particularly entertaining in general. Aka Anette. :roll: (she did say i think she'll use the love luxe beauty palette again though, so we'll see)

i'm also getting tired of small BGs whining about a lack of deepening shades in palettes... can they, for the love of christ, occasionally opt for an eye look the anatomy of which isn't "matte in crease - dark matte in outer v - shimmer on lid - whatever on lower lashline - super light shimmer on inner corner"? :D and how is their need for dark mattes in palettes (but not black! cause black is boring, ewww :roll: ) any different that big BGs' need for lid-setting shades/browbone highlights/nude transition shades in every palette... (something which smaller BGs complain about when making low-key holier-than-thou videos about bigger BGs)

(count all the "BGs" in this post. :) )

alllllso, her serious despise of any and all neutrals is getting on my nerves. i'm glad i grew out of my brown-hating phase. i love a good brown now, on occasion :D

last point. that brush declutter video (i was gonna comment on that earlier, but was too lazy). i didn't watch it, but i could tell from the thumbnail alone it would be her shitting on good quality, affordable brushes, and shilling more of her probably also good, but really fucking overpriced rephr brushes or whatever. idk about yall, but im not spending $30 on one brush. they can't be THAT good. :rofl: and if they are, how come there's still formulas that don't work for her, even with magical luxury brushes? :D

Totally. The main vibe I get from her is that she can't like something unless her image allows her to. Her image = I'm so e d g y and c r e a t i v e that I need *special* products to match my *special* talent. No bitch, if you had special talent you wouldn't NEED *special* products. I mean of course it's great to have nice things, but she's lucky to have those things. What about her viewers who can't afford those things? Does she not want to help them out by showing products they can buy too? Or are they just beneath her and her *specialness*?

She but he’s about the smoke show pallets that it was limiting on the looks you can, but every pallets she gets she does the same pink orange red shit like paint by numbers.

Also she added a green so it wasn’t like what every YouTuber was doing, just using a pallete that people wanted a review for.

B-but she's not even talented. It's so weird how how the rainbow palette brigade make the most cringe inducing color combinations, but can't fathom that thought of a neutral eye shadow palette, and the irony is that she only looks good with more neutral looks.
