Things I Don’t Do: Mommy Makeup

By Glinda

No, it’s not something I made up, it’s an actual brand name.

The concept behind the line is something I can get behind.  Who doesn’t like minimally messy, multi-tasking makeup?

However, I object to the name enough to never use it.

And don’t get me started on the fact that the lipglosses are named “Mommy’s Kisses.” Blargh.

I also think that it would automatically turn off anyone who wasn’t a mommy.  Amirite?  Way to instantly narrow that customer base!

This is by no means the only makeup featuring pressed powder and double-duty products.  In fact, Mommy Makeup is so far down the innovation line on this one, they are standing outside the door.

I often use makeup to try to repair the damage (Bags under eyes caused by sleep deprivation! Wrinkles in my forehead from giving “the look!”) that my children have done to my poor face. I often use makeup to remind me that I am not ONLY a mommy.

The last thing I want to do is remind myself of that fact every single time I put on some lip gloss.

    Makes you long for the days when you got a little porn with your nail polish ads.

    Scratch that–I’m thinking Tom Ford’s (et al’s) ads aren’t anywhere near as misogynist as this whole line of “Kinder, Küche, Kirche” cosmetics, and that the lip glosses come with cookie recipes and an apron.

    Here here!! The packaging alone would scare me away from the product, the name has me boycotting it…

    Don’t knock it til you try it. The Mommy’s little Helper Concealer is truly the BEST concealer I have ever used and the Mineral Dual Powder is outstanding.
