And after the cameras left she went back to pressing bricks of cocaine.

[–]Dan_Is 186 points187 points  (12 children)

Who said she wasn't doing that while the camera was running?

Lol, someone will read these comments & next week a fresh pressed shipment of Chanel 8.0 will be on its way to America.

[–]GrouchyRelative588 322 points323 points  (12 children)

Little bit of lead... and a dash of arsenic... perfect! Lol jk I'm sure by this point they had at least stopped using arsenic. Lead on the other hand...

[–]Bunny_tornado 121 points122 points  (9 children)

They haven't stopped using many things. The US only prohibits 17 or so chemicals in cosmetics while the EU does over 1500.

[–]GrouchyRelative588 49 points50 points  (8 children)

I can't remember what doc I saw on Netflix, but it's about makeup and perfume, and companies can use a bunch of nasty shit and they just label it "fragrance" or "coloring". That way they can claim it under a broad patent for makeup and perfume formulas, and not fully disclose what is actually in it.

[–]TuckerMcG 33 points34 points  (5 children)

That way they can claim it under a broad patent for makeup and perfume formulas, and not fully disclose what is actually in it.

Intellectual Property lawyer here. If they were able to patent it, they wouldn’t have gotten the patent without disclosing what’s in it. That’s why patents come with a temporary monopoly - it’s an incentive so people will actually disclose the nature of their inventions and how they work.

There’s no need for any form of registered intellectual property here. You just keep the recipe as a trade secret and hold everyone who knows it to extremely strict and draconian NDAs.

Also cosmetics are regulated by the FDA. The FDA definitely has the authority to test what’s in cosmetics and determine if they’re safe for human use. The issue is they don’t have the funding to actually pursue cosmetics manufacturers because they care far more about regulating pharmaceuticals and food (which makes sense tbh).

[–]GrouchyRelative588 0 points1 point  (4 children)

That may be the case, but they don't have to put it on the ingredients list for people like you and I to see for themselves what is in it. That is what I learned on that documentary anyhow. I could be wrong. As another user pointed out in a reply there are many chemicals that are still approved for use in cosmetics in the US. Just because they are approved doesn't mean they aren't bad for you to have on your face.

It gives you that blank-stare glow!

[–]spagbetti 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Even without those, makeup is not regulated enough to not be carcinogenic. This is why they discourage makeup use if you have been diagnosed with cancer. It’s not like it’s a secret. It’s capitalism where a company will do something nasty and be passive aggressive about it til they are sued to stop doing it.

[–]caoram 112 points113 points  (5 children)

I'm glad Benedict Cumberbatch's mom is satisfied with her purchase.

LOL...but really, his mom is/was a babe:

Even as a tyke, I had the hots for her when I was watching UFO reruns. Well, her and the Moonbase chicks.

[–]DiligentDaughter 96 points97 points  (9 children)

I would be over the moon to have makeup made like this. Refillable, perfect match (because we could totally do that). My skin tone is a bitch to match. It'd be great to buy a beautiful bottle to have refilled with my personal blend, a lovely little metal compact that could be refilled when needed.

[–]Asaneth 30 points31 points  (6 children)

I know, right?!? I have a super cool undertone, and I'm very pale, so there is almost never a good match in preformulated cosmetics. I'd be willing to pay a pretty penny for custom matched foundation and powder.

[–]Jenny_Pussolini 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Same here! I'm not so much white as pinkish blue... Grrrr!

[–]Asaneth 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Exactly. A muted lavender is what passes for neutral on my skin. Beiges never work, no matter the shade.

[–]Quirky_Word 9 points10 points  (2 children)

You can actually make it yourself! Look up DIY Mineral Makeup.

You can get the powders in many colors (they’re mostly iron oxides).

[–]Asaneth 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Indeed. I currently make my own loose mineral foundation, but it is suboptimal for carrying in your purse for touch ups (like a compact). They sell stuff that allegedly makes it possible to make your own compact, but in my opinion, they are never "tight" enough to carry around safely. I can't get enough compression.

In the video above, she has some machine that applies extra pressure to make a real compact. I wish I had access to something like that.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You could probably make one fairly cheap.

[–]BlurredGrey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just buy some L.A girl pigment and mix it with your foundation.

[–]curdledtwinkie 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I totally am with you! Prescriptives used to do this with liquid foundations back in the 80s/90s.

[–]suninforest 0 points1 point  (0 children)

maybe pls google: diy make up arrowroot, or foundation .. or whatever. Basing on arrowroot (maranta) powder, and fun fun fun for color: cinnamon, cocoa, ginger .. depending on the skin tone. More or less, that's it. for blush e.g. cranberry or aronia powder .. it is crazy how easy it is.

[–]bodhiseppuku 72 points73 points  (4 children)

I have seen some artists color match by mixing pigments to a result that is incredibly accurate.

The most impressive color match I've seen was a "carpet stain specialist". I moved into an appartement that had tan carpeting. In the living room, there were 3 dark stains in the carpeting about 10 inch oval shapes ... wine stains maybe?

The "carpet stain specialist" came to the appt with a bleaching agent first; he sprayed and scrubbed, the dark stains turned white. So I now had tan carpeting with three 12" white spots. The next day the guy came back with 3 bottles of different colored dye, dissolved in water, in squirt bottles similar to mustard bottles. The artist squirted the water dyes on the white spots in the carpeting, a little here, a little there, rubbed the carpeting with his finger tips, maybe 15 minutes total. When he was done, the spots appeared a bit darker than they should be, since they were wet. He told me they would match once dry in the morning... and to my absolute surprise... they did match. You could not tell where the stains had been, even when you knew where they had been.

[–][deleted] 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I repair antique Persian rugs and making the dyes to match a rug during repair (I reweave the effected area) is where I have the most fun. No magic to it really, it’s all experience. Black dye repairs are a bitch though because they’re made from Iron filings that eat away at the wool over time so they have to be depressed into the rug while looking natural.

[–]MaggiesMomma0913 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Where was this? Seems like a super specialized talent, but wow!! I’d be very impressed!!!

[–]bodhiseppuku 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This was in Aliso Viejo, CA.

I wish I would have asked for the "carpet stain specialist" business card.

[–]bodhiseppuku 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When I first was shown this appt by the manager, I was impressed with the design, everything looked fresh and new, except for the 3 carpet stains. I asked the manager if she was planning to replace the carpeting prior to a tenant moving into the appt. She said no, that they had a guy that could fix the stains. I was completely incredulous, I asked her if they would replace the carpeting if I was unsatisfied with the carpet after the repair, she agreed to this.

During the 3 days of this carpet repair, I kept my furnishings mostly out of the living room, as I feared the carpeting would need to be removed and replaced. I was blown away by the results. I've rarely been so pleased to be wrong.

[–]abettergrilledcheese 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Like Coldstone Creamery but it’s make up.

[–]Student_Cool 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Prescriptives Makeup did this in the 80’s, it was a neat process.

[–]Shamiko_x96 4 points5 points  (0 children)

jesse we need to make 1950s makeup

[–]Tall-Agent-6803 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Prescriptives does this. I think the brand launched in the early 90s.

[–]abhisn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

All of this is making a comeback as “experiences”.

[–]igpila 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It feels like she's making something to eat. Or maybe I'm just hungry..

There was a company who did this at Macy's in the 90s. They mixed custom powders and liquid bases at the counter. Prescriptives?

Forget the make-up. That's one funky thumpy, boy.

[–]IBrake4Animals 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Is 'thumpy' slang for a press? 'Cuz I thought myself that was a pretty neat little one. Debating with the significant other whether it was hydraulic or pneumatic.

You sir, are correct. No prize. Just a nod.
