We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
Damn, I know Snapchat filters can blur your blemishes but I could see she still edited it lol like her lips (you can see the warp on the dog nose), the brown patch under her eye in the second photo, and the shadow on Switch’s arm looks unnatural. She blurred her skin out more too.
it’s funny how just months ago while going to Sev Lasers to get a tattoo removal, she had to clarify to her followers that she wasn’t going to get Botox but yet she’s gotten herself a brow lift on the down low.... i wouldn’t be surprised if she’s gotten injections for her smile lines, cheekbone area, or undereyes and chin. Her face looks much more different and bloated compared to a couple years ago but it’s not because of puberty. The sad thing is that she didn’t even need all these procedures, she basically turned into an IG baddie clone while continuing to promote fit teas and mattresses.
Also, I guess she works at a Forever 21 office since this was a photo from her coworker’s IG, who is a creative director. She is on the right. It’s ironic because she used to shit on Forever 21 and now she’s working under them lol
According to the FDA, as long as her product is safe in terms to packaging, ingredients, labels and directions, it is not required (though they encourage it). However, if she is going to sell an acne cream which is considered a cosmetic under FDA terms, her product is both a cosmetic and a drug, since it contains CBD, a drug. From the FDA: “If, however, your products are drugs, or both cosmetics and drugs, they must meet the requirements for drug registration. Similarly, importers of cosmetic ingredients that are also classified as food products must meet the registration requirements of the Bioterrorism Act of 2002.” Idk if she has already done some kind of official paperwork or anything or if she’s going to sell it as if it’s a DIY Etsy product.
Here’s more info from the FDA site about small businesses and homemade products: https://www.fda.gov/cosmetics/resources-industry-cosmetics/small-businesses-homemade-cosmetics-fact-sheet#6
I’d also like to quote this from the site because this is basically Sarah in a nutshell: “Newcomers to cosmetic manufacture sometimes think that because they have used a product themselves with no apparent problems, or because the ingredients are "natural," "organic," or "botanical," the product must be safe. This assumption is not correct.”
Either way, even if my skin was bad, I wouldn’t volunteer to try her acne cream. From her recent pictures, CBD hasn’t been doing her wonders and she isn’t an expert on skincare. Plus, CBD oil is just like any plant-derived oil for your skin, it can work for some people but not for others. With it’s connection with weed, it sounds more like a gimmick marketed to anyone jumping on the hemp train. Not only that, but there are other known skincare lines that contain CBD oil and I’d rather try those out first rather than an untrusted homemade manufacturer (Sarah).
I think she was chubby when she was younger but gained more weight as she got older. Back when she was on tumblr, she edited herself to match Japanese beauty (with very light skin, big eyes, super skinny, etc), but with this fad of being “thicc”, she’s joined in on it except she has to edit less now because she’s already overweight to begin with. I guess some are shocked to believe she’s still putting up effort with editing because it’s been years and she’s still hiding her true appearance, plus we’re used to seeing her edited self. It’s sad that she’s insecure (everyone is) but it’s no shocker to me what she looks like, because photo editing has come a long way where anyone can alter their appearance drastically, but no matter what, it’s easy to spot if you’re used to seeing it online. And it’s even more sad that her friends or boyfriend can’t post a candid of her without her editing or approval first.
Also, I don’t think houses in Arkansas are expensive anyway, so I wouldn’t assume Switch’s family is rich. If I recall correctly, Arkansas is about rank 2 in the US of cheapest state to live in. You can probably rent a 4 bedroom house for about $450 in Arkansas compared to renting an average 2 bedroom in California for $1000+ depending on the area. So Switch’s family is probably just an ordinary middle-class family.
Actually, these mushrooms aren’t the drug type ones. The ones you’re thinking about are called Psilocybin mushrooms or psychedelic mushrooms, or simply “shrooms”. The pink ones she posted are Pink Oyster Mushrooms, which is legally edible and commonly used in cooking. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if she did grow some magic shrooms since she’s always praising drugs and hyping them up as some natural miracle.
Translation: “The purpose of life is to learn and experience things with other people.” “Wonder. Live. Travel. It’s worth it. Don’t have any expectations, don’t be afraid to take risks. No animal can match up to a human’s will and intelligence. But if there was an animal to compare to, it’d be sloths because they’re lazy. Stop being lazy.”
If she really wants to sound inspirational while actually making sense, just get right to the point. It sounds like she has a max word limit and is trying so hard to fulfill it with unnecessary details and structure. Her quotes are basically “Live. Laugh. Love” if it took acid.
i think because it’s a quirky name. There’s a video game character named Krotchy, but I doubt she was influenced by that. I think she just likes weird names since she has a history of them, like her CBD skincare is named Walagoot (has nothing to do with Wallagoot, Australia), her old twitters are “Weeeaboo” (I doubt she even knew what this meant and chose it because it sounds good to her) and “Goolemturp”(whatever that means), her tumblr is “kalaloke” and her Snapchat is “fagort” (like the derogatory word).
PULL isn’t catered to making users feel better about themselves. It’s a place to discuss the topic: Pokimane. Just because someone is criticizing her looks doesn’t mean they’re criticizing others in general. Therefore, saying “please don’t criticize x because I also have it and it makes me feel bad about myself” is more of a “you” problem than a Pokimane problem. Plus, a criticism includes an opinion. If you don’t like the opinions others have expressed, feel free to downvote or move on. That’s what those buttons are for. If you want to discuss this further, PM me (you won’t). Otherwise, you are continuing to derail the thread.
The way I read @jazzkr’s comment was that she preferred a genuine Pokimane smile. Pokimane covers her mouth when she giggles sometimes on stream, but we don’t know if it’s because she’s insecure of her smile or if it’s just a mannerism (most likely). @jazzkr did say she wishes to see her true self more, hence the open smile.
They were praising her smile, the one in the photo attached because it looks more genuine. The point wasn’t to criticize her teeth, but rather comparing her genuineness off stream vs on stream. No one was talking about her teeth, no one said anything about how ugly her smile is. With that being said, no one cares if you’ve had braces. That’s something to keep to yourself. Anyone who has braces were most likely self conscious about their teeth, that’s why they have braces in the first place. Anyway, adding this little bit and telling someone to not criticize their smile (when they actually wasn’t) just sounds like you’re projecting.
To anyone new in this thread (or pull in general), please read other users’ posts more carefully and all the way through before you add your two cents in.
This reminds me of the “don’t dead open inside” meme from the Walking Dead
Also nitpicking but that font doesn’t help with the aesthetics. It looks like she’s trying to create an artistic portfolio with these little projects but it doesn’t show she has a creative mind, just peculiar obsessions with weird things while trying to be fake deep or intelligent.
