ATTENTION ALL COSPLAYERS THIS IS A REALLY IMPORTANT HEALTH POST. recently there was a post on here about using kool-aid packets as lip stain. Being a cosplayer i wanted to see if i could use green for maybe a homestuck cosplay maybe. i used the tip of my finger to rub the powder on my lips and used a wet q-tip to get any extra stuff. while doing this my lips were kind of tinglling. It was a bit uncomfortable on the verge of painful but i thought nothing of it. Soon the feeling was really strong so i decided to take the stuff off. after trying to remove it multiple times my lips remained a nasty yellow green color and i looked at my lips to see a layer of skin burned off. I used lemon-lime so maybe it had to do with acidity, but still i was in shock. My lips are still burning even 10 minutes afterwards and its really bad. I DO NOT want ANYBODY to have to deal with this like i did. so please watch out and if your friends see the post warn them about the lemon lime packets. idk if the other types of kool aid do this, but i dont want to find out. I do have sensitive skin so maybe that comes into play but this is actually kind of severe so in general i just dont think people should do it. So please watch out for yourself and dont burn off a layer of skin from your lips simply for cosplay oaky?
Could be a result of the citric acid, and considering that all the Kool Aid packets are “A good source of Vitamin C” go ahead and assume that they will all make your lips burn.
If you have done this, and are a little late on seeing this post, you need to neutralize the acid. Just because you removed the powder from your lips, doesn’t mean that you have removed all of the product. You skin has already absorbed quite a bit of it, and failure to neutralize could result in some serious damage. Use a mixture of distilled water and baking soda to neutralize and soothe your skin.
This conclude the unsolicited advice from your friendly neighborhood esthetician with too much time on her hands.
I have to work tomorrow instead of pack my apartment. However conflicted I may be, I am happy that I have clients who need me tomorrow.
I will be making sure to thank them a little more sincerely than I already do, because without my clients I wouldn’t have a job.
As an added bit of snark (if you can’t, like me, live without it), thank the OTC companies tat keep making bad products. Because with out them our clients wouldn’t need us to fix what that product ruined.
I hope all of you have had a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving/Hanukkah/Thursday, and please be safe if you are Black Friday-ing.

If you make an appointment with a beauty professional, and your appointment day and time come up and you can’t make it…
CALL YOUR BEAUTY PROFESSIONAL AND LET THEM KNOW!
It is rude and irritating to plan for an early morning or late work day and have your client no call no show.
They are giving you their time, we are not your hired help. If cannot make your appointment CALL THEM AND LET THEM KNOW!
Your money is what makes our livelihood, and we plan and depend on you coming in and paying for your services. You not showing up for your scheduled appointment, is like me promising my daughter her favorite food and then blatantly not following through.
My little brother broke his tiny bone in his wrist that does not heal well. So we had to spice it up if he was going to wear it for a week.
Exactly how little is your little brother because I’m not saying I would date him but I would totally date him.
