There has been some recent drama surrounding Irene aka Pinkiecharm about whether she is receiving free products from MAC or not. As we all know, she gets a lot of free products from Stila. I don't see how it's hard to believe that she's now getting products from MAC also. The good drama revolving around this topic comes in the form of Irene's MakeupAlley swapping. Recently she posted a video on YouTube reviewing the new Spring Forecast 1 collection. Wouldn't you know that before even making that video live she had the "free" items up for swap on MakeupAlley?!

Now, I'm not one to hate or actually even care if "gurus" get free products to review and talk about. There are a lot of brands I would have never heard of if some YouTuber hadn't talked about it. But, I think it's complete bullshit that this Fupa Queen is taking the products she's reviewed and profiting off of them via swapping. She could use the products in her little "twitaways" and I wouldn't have anything to say about it. She already makes money off of YouTube and her blog. I'm sure a lot of the Stila products that she has up for swap were given to her for free as well.
Another thing about Pinkiecharm that confuses me is why she actually hoards all of this make up. We've all seen in her videos that she barely wears it. She sticks to very neutral and light colours yet she has heaps of bright and bold colours in her collection.
Honestly, a blog about Pinkiecharm really could go on for ages. There is so much out there about her and then her snobby attitude just adds fuel to the trolling fire.
Just for the lolz....
