"Many times the non-makeup wearer will scoff at the winged liner and bold red lip, slandering her sillyness." I seriously have no idea what that means but it's hilarious and I love it.

This article stumbles over it's own verbose language, and I'm more than a little insulted that "feminism" appears to be a hook to get pageviews, as there's very little about the political ramifications of personal style choices other than the fact that women started wearing more makeup when they won the right to vote. Big words do not make insightful commentary.

Honestly! I really wanted to read it, but I couldn't finish it because it became difficult to follow. I am certain it could have been written much more simply.

This is a very interesting article, it's almost like it could go into an academic journal. The insight is amazing. :)
