I walked through my local supermarket yesterday and noticed some of the funniest things they were plugging with star wars. Either I never noticed all this when the other films came out, or everyone just went a little bit crazy over this latest movie.
Phew, lucky Yoda isn’t teaching grammar or anything, that would be a bit awkward. Hmm, reading you shall learn. And I always knew that maths was part of the dark side!
Then I saw this and it made me go, fucking seriously?
Star Wars makeup! I don’t know what to feel about this. I honestly thought I could write witty things here but I realised I’m not that creative. Plus again, I don’t know how to feel about this. Because there’s a difference between costume makeup and everyday, and Covergirl was always an everyday makeup brand. When I see this type of thing it cheapens the whole franchise for me on both sides, star wars and Covergirl, just feels so gimmicky. Because when I feel like wearing makeup which is rarely, then I’m serious about the brand and the beauty behind it. When I’m feeling nerd, which is a lot of the time, then I really couldn’t give a shit about girly things such as makeup, so it tying them in together like that, I don’t know.
Anyway, doesn’t change the fact that these things gave me some lolz. Everyday I’m seeing the star wars merchandise whore itself out a bit further.
