Woman posts makeup selfie review after surviving a car crash because amazing eyeliner didn't budge
As any makeup-wearer will know, finding the product that is just right for you is like a never-ending Goldilocks and the Three Bears situation. Everything is either poor quality, or bad for your skin, or not quite the right shade, or full of questionable chemicals, or simply nothing like what it appeared to be when you first saw it on Instagram. And, on the rare occasion that you do find something that won't break you out and keep you looking your best for the entire working day, it always ends up costing the Earth.
So, when you stumble across that perfectly made bowl of porridge in product form, it's essentially your responsibility - no, your duty - to let everyone else know about it.
And, just this week, one Twitter user stumbled across an amazing example of this while looking for a new eyeliner.
The woman, who goes by the Twitter username @guadalahari, was browsing the ratings for the Kat Von D tattoo eyeliner when she came across one review from a woman who had literally been involved in a car accident while wearing the product.
"Y’all I was really out here looking for a new eyeliner and look at this review lmfaooo," tweeted @guadalahari. "She deadass took a picture in her neck brace I am deceased."
The reviewer, rather than focus on the fact that she had just been struck by a moving vehicle, apparently took the time to snap a selfie, and later posted it to the Kat Von D page with a glowing review about how well her makeup held up while she was being taken to the hospital and treated for her injuries. No, seriously.
This is what she wrote:
"This product is truly amazing. June 28th I was pulled over in my car calling for roadside assistance when a distracted driver hit me going 55mph. I was taken via ambulance to the ER where I remained for 8 hours. My mascara was running down my face from crying and all other products had been wiped off in the transfer to the hospital. But not my tattoo eyeliner. I am posting a pick [sic] to show you. this product lasts and looks amazing through anything. Never buying any other liner again."
And if that wasn't amazing enough, another woman commented with a similar drastic-injury-selfie to confirm that the liner is, indeed, fit to deal with anything.
Following the post, dozens of Kat Von D fans came flooding in to add their two cents about how great the liner is - all the while apparently ignoring the teeny tiny detail that THIS CHICK TOOK A SELFIE AFTER BEING HIT BY A CAR.
Eventually, the selfie-taker did come forward and explained that she originally took the snap to provide evidence of her injuries later on.
So, if you were looking for a new eyeliner, it appears that this particular brand has a number of reliable advocates. However, if you are going to buy it, please be aware that it won't offer you any protection from potentially life-threatening accidents.
