    So you're telling me Monica is this knowledgeable about makeup products, but thinks it's weird a MAN named JAMES bought some from her and automatically assumed it was for "his girlfriend"!?
    HELP! The logic isn't logicing 😭
    I'd have assumed it was James Charles SO QUICK if it was me!!! 😩🤣

      I know it would have been cheating but the Jaclyn palette could have given highlighter. But you were staying true to product types in end result. Thanks James!

      KENLUXE Month ago +1

      @Courtney Carlisle that's not something out of the ordinary though, with the crisis going on right now lots of stores are closing and moving to the online market simply because it's so expensive to run shops with the war going on. Basic resources like light and gas are almost unaffordable

    James was so unhinged with that vibrating face massager thingy I actually screamed, it’s so funny watching you again after all these years and seeing how many mature jokes you were making this whole time, I’ve gotten hate for watching you but you’ve always cracked me up and never failed to put a smile on my face buy the end of your video. Thank you James!

    James... what made you think the wet and wild color changing blush is a cream blush? I'm almost 100% sure it's a powder blush ... which is probably why it didnt show up since you tried to apply it like a cream blush with a sponge instead of like you would with a powder and a brush. I hate shorts but I'd actually be excited to see a short of you retrying that blush correctly. Its really not a bad blush ... the color is kinda different from the norm ..but it definitely has pigment. Please please retry it I'm dying to see your actual thoughts!
