Real Vs Fake Makeup Under A Microscope

  • Опубликовано: 24 августа 2018
  • Today we're going to be taking a look at some fake and real makeup under a microscope! Also, a big thank you to Honey! You can join Honey for free here -

    So I've seen a lot of makeup under a microscope videos floating around, so I wanted to get in on the fun and get a microscope of my own to see what I could see! I got some knockoff makeup products from Santee Alley downtown, and then compared those to their real counterparts under a microscope to expose the differences up close on my skin! We took a look at the Sweet Peach Palette, Fenty Foundation, Moonchild Palette, Better Than Sex Mascara, and Kylie Lip Kit.

    Also, apologies for the "horseshoe" typo!! Whoops, lol.

    HELLO FRIENDS!! ah yes, another gross microscope video to add to the list.... what do you guys think of these products? I would say "would you try this?" but I don't want any of y'all using unregulated fake makeup!! But I do condone the use of a microscope in pretty much any situation. xoxo, saf

      Safiya Nygaard i don’t want to hate but that’s not the right way to swatch, you should probably use your figure next time.

                              I don’t see why poop in makeup is a concern. Bat guano is a know ingredient in most mascaras...
                              which is why I don’t wear it! 🦇💩🤣

                                                      I'm late to the party, but if you want to see microbes...
                                                      Eukaryotes (like if you want to look at fungi & protist pathogens (which would be single-celled parasites like cryptococcus, some amoebas, etc)) you can generally see at 100X-1000X magnification
                                                      Prokaryotes are really small at 100X and generally we go to 1000X to get a decent view, though they're still pretty small at that magnification
                                                      And viruses are even tinier
                                                      So if you wanted to look for fecal pathogens in some home microscopy, I would recommend using sterile (like, rubbing alcohol-swabbed) glass surfaces and mixing some makeup with a sterile water/buffer (like a commercial saline solution?). Not sure what can substitute for a coverslip to get an even surface...
                                                      There are some fun microbial shapes!! You get classic rods like E. coli, wavy noodle bois like Borrelia, almost elbow noodle shapes like Yersinia & Vibrio, amoebas which are so fun to see splorch around, "hairy" ciliates....

                                                                                          Honestly pausing it where you can see the complete look on both sides of your face (19:07) I have to say I like the "fake" makeup side better. This is both because I like the colours better on the "fake" side, and because the lack of coverage leads to a more "natural" look. The "fake" side of your face looks like the face of a real person, whereas the "real" side of your face looks almost too even, almost like you were a barbie doll or a mannequin. Of course, I am a bit biased because i tend to favor big dramatic changes in makeup and skip the small stuff (like for example wearing dark blues and greens and even blacks in lipstick, but not really bothering with foundation at all). I would say that the highlighter on the "fake" side was definitely way cooler though, it added some nice pizzazz to your look, whereas the "real" highlighter didn't really pop. The one thing that the "real" side really had an advantage to, though, is the mascara, it did a way better job than the "fake" mascara in lengthening your lashes and making them pop. (Disclaimer: Like the author of this video, I in no way endorse the wearing of possibly unsafe products of dubious origin, I wear them quite frequently myself and have never had anything bad come of it, but I also wear "real" name brand stuff. Basically, don't blame me for what you choose to put on your face, I will not be held liable, thank you.)
