I’m sorry, I have to share my rant that I posted in a facebook group. This is something I feel strongly about. I’m sorry if I offend anyone, you are more than welcome to have a differing opinion, and I am more than happy to agree to disagree, but this is how I feel. I would also like to note that this doll is a collectors edition doll. It was made for adults who collect Barbie’s, not children. It costs $50. That is not a child’s toy and the uproar over a doll marketed for adults is insane.


Seriously I don’t like Barbie at all. But I could get behind this Barbie and I can’t believe the BS uproar about it. I heard about it on the radio last night on the way home. I just can’t believe it. Children see this on REAL people every day, whether it’s at the grocery store, a restaurant, driving around. Kids see it all of the time. If you’re that paranoid about your child having a doll with a tattoo then I suggest you keep them locked up at home so they never see real people with real tattoos, because this is simply stupid.

I’ve seen so many arguments about how barbies are innocent dolls and blah blah blah. They have unrealistic body shapes and have crazy slutty clothes that you can get for them and you are worried about a freaking tattoo? Gimme a break. Also you don’t have to BUY the doll for your kids, you don’t even have to mention it. In fact the uproar that people are causing are putting it IN the media for kids to see, when they might otherwise never know about this doll. So I’m sorry, if you have a problem with a DOLL with a tattoo, then that’s your problem, don’t buy the doll. It’s that simple. I can’t believe people are freaking out over a doll with a tattoo when kids have access to temporary tattoos everywhere. Blargh. This really upsets me. It’s also teaching kids that it’s okay to be prejudice against people who have body modifications, which isn’t right. This is just… stupid beyond compare and frustrating.

I try to teach my kids to respect everyone, and that it doesn’t matter what someone wears, how many holes they have or how much ink they have on their body. They are people just as much as we are people, and people like different things and that’s okay. This is just teaching kids that it’s bad to have tattoos or body modifications and reinforcing prejudice, and disrespect for people. This is an issue dear to my heart. I don’t want my children growing up to be that kid that bullies someone because they look different. I want them to be able to look at someone and not judge them before they even know them just because of how they look. /rant

/EDIT It appears that Cheri is in LA and didn’t have time to respond to anything. Well why didn’t she respond when she was actively posting on Facebook before she left? I know she had comments and emails then because she deleted some of the comments. You can see all the deleted posts here.

She deleted many valid comments and concerns. Oh well. She deleted my posts and banned me, she did others as well. No one was even being malicious. We wanted answers and wanted people to see what was found. While some people have absolutely no issues purchasing products from someone who has flat out lied to them, I do. She says her products are chemical free yet there is paraben in her primer. Uh. Okay. It’s one thing to say this product may contain paraben or whatever else. It’s completely different to blatantly lie about what is in a product and market it as paraben free. Just to note, it appears that the cosmetics outside of the primer are all safe. However that doesn’t change that she’s lied about making them and just about everything else. Had she been honest and upfront about her products no one would have any issues right now. But no she had to use stock photos to falsely advertise her products, leading people to believe they were going to have results and colors like those on the photos. Only to have many people find out that their colors didn’t match and they couldn’t actually get results like those on the photos. I’m glad many of you have had good results with Orglamix, however it’s not actually Orglamix and you’d be better off buying them from the manufacturer. At least they won’t lie to you about them. Cheri said she explained everything. However she only stated she was sorry about repackaging candy glam and that she had changed labels. She doesn’t explain how people have jars of product with another companies labels and why they received them recently. She doesn’t explain why she lied about stock photos, since she’s still claiming to use professional photographers. Uh huh. If this is all a huge coincidence I’ll be the first to apologize, however I find that to be very unlikely based on her response and lies to all of this. If she was telling the truth why delete everything? If you have nothing to hide, why hide the posts questioning your validity? /EDIT

And the truth comes pouring out. Thanks to research by Snarky from The Eyes Have It. Go read A Long Tale of Orglamix Organic Ending With Unexpected Big Bang. WTF

I’m not even sure what to say now. I’m extremely glad I didn’t purchase from her. I’d planned on making a big purchase. I even recommended Orglamix here on my blog after finding out about them. Shared their store with my friends thinking I’d found something awesome. I’ve learned my lesson. Always research before you buy. I feel bad for all the people out there who have been purchasing from Cheri believing they were getting natura, vegan, cruelty free, PETA friendly makeup. I’m truly sorry. I hope Cheri at least deals with the aftermath of this properly. After all, this is her own fault. It literally pays to be honest. <3

/Edit So it turns out that Cheri has also been using stock photos to advertise her cosmetics. I don’t have an issue with that. As long as you are upfront and you tell people. It’s incredibly deceitful and unethical to use stock photos depicting products that you don’t actually sell. She’s basically leading people to believe that they’re going to achieve these amazing looks with her cosmetics and even going to far as to tell people what eyeshadow is used on the models from the stock photo sites. It’s clear now also that her swatch photos are clearly photoshopped eyes. Some look as though she’s just photoshopped the colored eyeshadow on, while others look like she’s actually photoshopped the same eyeball in. Here she says the model here is using the pacific paradise collection… But um that’s a stock photo that you purchased, you don’t know what she’s using. Here are more. Here are some links to photo’s of her double labels: here, here and here. Like I said earlier. It’s unfortunate that she couldn’t just be honest and upfront. Had she not lied about everything I would probably be willing to purchase her products. I can’t purchase from her knowing how deceitful she’s been. I mean saying that you’re registered with PETA as being cruelty free and not actually being registered anywhere? It all seems small and silly. But when it all adds up it’s quite sad. /End edit

I first heard about Orglamix through Alternative Housewife. After checking out their Etsy and facebook pages I was impressed with the products and color choices they had. I’d even contacted Cheri on Etsy to see about finding a foundation shade for my skin. Her response on Etsy kind of threw me off. It was really generic and it didn’t seem like she even read what I said to her. I quickly brushed it off and went back to mulling over eyeshadow colors.

WTF Right now I have to say I’m glad I didn’t purchase anything from Orglamix. After reading this and seeing all of the comments that have been deleted from her facebook page. I don’t know what to think. If you read the comments there from Not Making it Up you can see that people who purchased Orglamix products in the last month have jars that have double labels on them. :/ Some of labels list unsafe ingredients and others don’t list ingredients at all. Some have carmine in them which is made from carminic acid from scaley bugs. These are supposed to be vegan products. Some list the jars being 1 gram while the ones on top list them as 2 gram jars. There are too many people responding with relabeled jars to think this is just a mistake or that she just made new labels for the jars.

For those of you who have purchased Orglamix recently, can you check your labels to see if any are relabeled? It would be nice to know. As of right now I think I’m going to avoid purchasing from Orglamix until I see how this plays out. Right now her behavior tends to make me believe that she was being dishonest in her product sales, but I hope I’m wrong.
