While I agree with what Ethan said in his video (IG is just a highlight reel/fake most of the time), I think that his message got muddied up/lost during the video. On top of that, I also think his sarcasm/humor is hard to get for people who aren't familiar with the way he jokes and he can come off as an asshole in that case. As for Trisha, it's incredibly appalling how self-unaware she is. She's calling Ethan an "old creepy man" but she's the same age as him. She's even criticizing the way he makes fun of the girls bodies but promotes teas and fads to young impressionable girls. She swears she's the "realest" but these diets don't even work. She'd be the first to preach "body positivity" but then go and facetune her entire body beyond recognition, like girl what is you doin.
I just find TikTok in general super cringe, and I can't help but die a little inside when I see her's pop up on my feed. I mean, she says she enjoys it and good for her, but I feel like she's portraying two different personas online that conflict. On one side, she's cosplaying cute characters and lip syncing to cute songs on the other side she's tilted on league and calls everyone a retard on stream.
I agree, I think the wispy lashes also make her eyelook very droopy and tired. I was just thinking how she doesn't have much actual lid space, similar to half-hooded monolids. Maybe an unpopular opinion, but the makeup artist (and many upcoming self-taught makeup artists) who did her makeup for this campaign are pretty amateur. They typically copy-and-paste their makeup techniques without considering the person's eye shape, eye color, etc. They literally just cookie-cutter it and put on makeup as if they're applying it on their own selves. This can explain why the MUA's actual makeup looks bomb, but Poki's looks like a clown. Experienced makeup artists like Mario or Wayne Goss have experienced putting makeup on all types of eye shapes and sizes for YEARS, and they master their technique to fit the individual to accentuate their features, not take away at them. In my opinion, the makeup look is too dark. There's black eyeliner in her waterline that makes her eyes look smaller/more closed and tired, along with the wispy lashes. The dark shadow on her outer crease adds onto that problem, and there's not really a bright inner corner to lighten the look up or make her eyes pop. The smoked-out lashline accentuates her wrinkles and creates more darkness around her undereye. Her blush is horrendously applied and waaaay too dark/pigmented paired with the lip color. I think a lighter pinky-nude lipstick would have made the look a bit more easy on the eyes, but altogether, this look is a mess and can't be worth saving. Sorry for being nit-picky about fucking makeup
I really don't get this collab whatsoever. She came out with it last year and it flopped so she's now re-releasing it...? What is she thinking? I bet you she doesn't even use this palette, judging by the colors and shitty glitter. In her videos/streams you can see a Natasha Denona palette and J* palettes... is girl really trying to sell her crappy winkylux palette like she actually uses it? C'mon girl. This is just another shot at a money-grab collab. Honestly, people are proud of her for putting something out and having her name on something but I think it's just shameful that she'll put her name on something half-assed and low quality. Like why would you approve of something that you didn't put your 100% into and fully love. For all I know, this is her gateway into the twitch/makeup community. I'm sure they'll think she's an established "CEO/guru" with this product. /endsarcasm Poki, grow a backbone, will you? We know your hustle, this ain't it sis.
I know there's a clip of Alinity mocking her with the whole copyright strike thing... Basically there's someone in Alinity's chat that says something along the lines of "isn't this the girl who copyright strikes everyone for money?" and Alinity answers "no, that would be Pokimane" I honestly feel like because she's such a large streamer on twitch, other twitch streamers WK her and fanboy over her because they don't wanna dig their own grave or receive any backlash/hate. Just take a look at TSM Daequan, giving her the pass to use the n-word. He knows that if it were anyone else but Poki, he wouldn't have publicly supported that. Even Sky Williams, who made many videos against e-girl and snowflake behavior, gives her the pass because he doesn't wanna kill his already dead career. Destiny teeters on the edge of not liking her (imo), but I think he respects her business hustle and "work ethics." Even in OTV, you can tell that the members are kinda sick of her bs. There are plenty of clips where the atmosphere changes when she comes into the room, or clips where people's tone change in response to her bs. However, none of them are going to say a thing explicitly or challenge her (other than pinksparkles lol) because again, she's the protected queen of twitch right now. I bet you they have a OTV group chat, and then another one without her.
Wow I remember seeing some of her popular league cosplays and DEFINITELY thought she photoshopped her waist/eyes/nose/jawline. I would think no way in hell is this woman's waist the same circumference as her upper thigh. She denies all photoshop though, and claims it's just angles and makeup. Although she does look nice and doll-like, she looks NOTHING like that in real life. Her nose isn't as petite, her waist isn't as small, her eye's aren't as big. More candids/tagged photos from her public twitter.
As for those scars, those look pretty scary... I don't follow her closely to understand her rationale behind posting it online and then following up with photoshoots as if nothing happened, but I guess she appears to have some body dysmorphia, esp with the way she photoshops herself into an unrealistic doll.
Wait, what the actual fuck?? How can you claim to LOVE dogs but THROW TEA ON ONE??? I'm REALLY hoping it wasn't hot tea... There's literally NO excuse to animal abuse, fuck what she has to say about having no sleep. Call animal control or the cops to issue a complaint. If anything, she's made her situation worse because the poor dog doesn't know why it's being poured on. Her taking it down just goes to show she's a shit person for doing this (and sharing it) and she knows she's in the wrong. On the halfu comment-- that's some cringe softcore weeb/Asian-fetish shit, for lack of better words. Who actually says that type of stuff other than people who "fetishize" Asians/Asian culture. Why couldn't she just say aunt?
I first knew about her when she was featured on the League client and went to go check her out. At first I thought she was Hispanic trying to look Asian (as some egirls on twitch try to do) but it turns out she's half Cuban (father) half Chinese (mother). I thought her skill level was ok, and gave her slack because twitch chat can be tilting/annoying at times. At one point during her stream she was just chatting with her viewers and I had asked whether she'd prefer to lane against a Soraka who max'd E first or a Janna who max'd W first (just for entertainment purposes) and she replied "what kinda dumb cancer question is that?" Glad to say I never tuned in again after that interaction. I also find it kinda cringe that she got a "marksman" icon tattoo'd on her forearm. Yeah her body, her choice and League's one of her hobbies but goodness, it's not a cute look imo.
I feel like she's stooped to a new low. I'm wondering how she must feel as she's typing these captions. (I cringed too, I feel so uncomfortable looking at her half naked body looking at me directly in the eye). Kudos to her, I guess this is the "new not-so-boring content" her fanbase wanted.
I doubt Ariana is 100% vegan. It's actually SO difficult to go completely vegan (with leather cars, shoes, toothpaste, etc.) and I'm not criticizing her. I think she took on this promotion because it fits her ~aesthetics~. She has a cloud tattoo, a cloud purfume at ulta, and now a cloud drink. At the end of the day, it's just a coffee.
dear GOD those snap pics made me so uncomfortable. Is this something people are paying for or something...? side note: i couldn't help but recognize that the orange juice is named innocent and this is anything but
I started watching her when she was in her extremely awkward <100k subscriber phase, when I was mostly watching thrift videos. I like her too, but I kinda feel like she's turned into an urban outfitters diehard. Nowadays, I look at her videos and already KNOW it's from urban because I shop there often too and can recognize the outfits lol. I really hope she sticks to her thrifting style because I'd hate for her to pull a "jennim" and go mainstream once she gets that many subscribers.
