Stupidity Just Might Be Contagious

I’m going to take a quick break from the regularly scheduled madness to inform you of more…madness.

Just a quick needle jab, let’s get it over with.

Ruthless Cosmetics: repacker, selling Lady Burd. Selling without the FDA approved use disclosures (not eye safe). Apparently having a very bad day, because the owner cussed up a storm and slung mad insults at someone on Facebook, and laughed it off as “you only have 18 followers, I’m not threatened.”

I’m not kidding, it’s probably one of the most delightful comments I’ve seen from a “makeup company owner,” ever. KittenMittens posted a screencap of it over at her blog after getting a tipoff to the whole spitting in the FDA’s face bit at Seriously’s blog.

As if that wasn’t enough, a little searching brought up this gem:

Google Cached Page

Yeah, you’re reading that right; a week ago, someone was unable to order from Ruthless Cosmetics because their PayPal account was unable to receive money, which could mean suspension or account freeze.

Protip: if you get busted doing something like going against the FDA, don’t try to lie about it to cover it up, and don’t harass the person who outed you.

Edit: It turns out that one of the same people owns Pretty Addictive Cosmetics. You can check their Facebook page here.

Edit March 11, 9:39pm: As if this couldn’t get any more absurd, this “owner” mistook ndrcvrngl at (not) Making It Up for one of the other bloggers who’s posted about Ruthless and sent her a nasty message! Please see my update here.

  1. I’d say “I don’t fecking believe this…” but sadly, I do.

    I don’t think that stupidity is “catching”, per se. I do think that lots of people had the brilliant idea to open an MMU store because “it’s so easy”…and they had no idea how to set up and run a proper business, where they actually do things like take responsibility for making sure the products they sell to their customers are safe.

    They’re just the latest round of folks looking to get money for nothing and sparkles for free.

  2. Ruthless Cosmetics… I wonder if they copied Bitch Slap or the other way around. Noit very original in my opinion and to see how these people trash talk on facebook is discusting.

    i found online a website i think theyre working on. it’S even worse than the one that exists now!

    check it out, barf-o-rama! lol
