Hello Beauties! I was having a chat with some lovely beauty enthusiasts that are also people of colour and one of them had said they shoplifted a brush because they can’t afford brushes and needed one. It was from a huge company and I felt like no real harm was done.
The discussion went on and we were discussing more generally the pressure to have all the tools and products to achieve certain makeup looks and how much that costs!
And when you are a person of colour, more often than not, the high street in the UK has nearly nothing affordable to cater to your skin tone. So yes, being brown is expensive!
The TDLR for this is: PoC can’t always afford to buy the products that work for us so give us a break and understand why sometimes it’s not so easy to find an affordable option.
