I've said this before but I've tried to give Eddie benefit of the doubt for so long, and after him being so fucking stupid about Holland I was just like 'okay this bitch doesn't deserve that kind of consideration.' And after watching the new Laneige cushion review it's just annoyed me more because he pays more attention to shitty one sentence comments here than he does to his fans. He doesn't have to support him but he's just so wrapped up in himself that he thinks it's important to give his own opinion on everything although he's just outing himself as an ignorant idiot.
Seriously I went through so many comments on his previous video with Aoora and I couldn't find anyone saying it made his head look an odd shape, they're all complimenting him. I've just checked through his insta comments too and can't see anything negative about his hair. The only comment I've seen about his hair is mine, when I called him an egg here.
I just actually finished the video and I can't help find it funny that Aoora's attempt, as a complete noob who doesn't even know what half the stuff is, looks almost exactly like Eddies usual makeup other than the eyeshadow is messy. Brows look good, base looks good, blush looks fine, lips look good.
Aoora seems so nice? Maybe Eddie's shitty personality isn't as obvious in Korean or he's a snake in disguise...
The white blonde with the goldish warm tones looked so much better on him, especially when he did makeup that was warmer and fitted his skin tone well. He looked healthy. It's so frustrating that Eddie does know how to match his foundation, he just clearly doesn't want to but the pale look doesn't suit him.
Watching a few of Sharlas videos made me realize just how much Elbow does support Tay. Sharla obviously has a bigger YT revenue, she gets waaaaay more views, but looking at the apartments her and Keyboard were looking at in Seoul, the difference in size between where Tay lived is crazy. I'm guessing they're a lot more equal with their finances since they're married and I don't think their salaries are that different, but I could be wrong.
I think Tay keeps all her earnings and basically does what she wants with it, like buying clothes and stuff for her videos, maybe paying her phone bill, whereas Elbow does rent and bills. Could be wrong, but just thinking about it
The reason him sexualising Wonho doesn't bother me much is because the people I see calling him out on that topic the most are usually super hypocritial . There's this one relatively popular instagram account (defo a k oreaboo , squints in photos and blames it on not wearing their glasses, I think they actually whiteknighted themselves in the Koreaboo thread here) that is constantly going on about loving and respecting idols. They posted a photo (since deleted) of Wonho at Mama, saying it was whitewashed, although when I watched the video it seems no different to the photo and it just looks like the lighting washed him out. The comments were full of shit like 'I'd eat his ass' and other straight up vulgar stuff, from the exact same accounts I've seen giving him shit for it. The Monsta X fandom is so full of it, but they'll still call out Eddie for it? Idk man, I can't take it seriously from them. Wonho is also a grown man, not a minor. Maybe not to the same extent, reaction videos are always played up or they'd be boring, but my reaction probably wouldn't be that far off if my bias wripped of his shirt on stage
Not denying Eddie's other faults, like the denial of racism/colourism and what he said about Kyla.
Onto his new video with CoGuy though. He's so cutee and seems really nice? His skin is so good that the base makeup looked so pretty. Also, the way his did Eddies makeup in his own video looked better imo than when Eddie does his own makeup.

The only thing I don't understand is why people aren't talking about the shirt? It cost 6000 HKD didn't it?
I like the hoodie, I could never afford it but she can. It's a hype asf brand, it looks good and I know if I was her and it got me onto the vetements page no way in hell would I sell it or let my followers dictate whether I should sell it.
The shirt(s) though, even though the 'vetements cafe' side is cute, the other is so basic and the whole stitched together thing? Personally I can't imagine that being comfortable at all. Being Vetements she could probably sell the shirts with a bit of an increase, say between 6000 to 8000 HDK? Knockes 2000ish off the price she paid for the sweater.
That's what's fashionable now tbh. Balenciaga, Champion ect. Streetwear is on trend. Even Gucci's recent stuff is mostly tee's and sweatshirts. Tee's and mom/boyfriend jeans with rips, even flared jeans are starting to make a comeback.
I cannot fucking wait to see what he comes out with now.
I know he expected some backlash but he clearly didn't expect this, it's been seriously harmful to his sub count and I'm pretty sure, if people have been reporting the video for bullying like they said they are, won't it be demonetized? So surely at the end it won't be worth it. I don't think there's really and damage control he could do to completely fix this huge error in judgement.
The risk he took was calculated, but boy, he's as bad at math as he is at matching his makeup to his skin tone.
