Basic Bitch? What Is That?

BBThe Genie rolled over while in bed excited and eager to check her mail; hoping for something great! When these words appeared across the screen of my lap top: Get the Basic Bitch Look Available In-Store & Online. I was in total and complete awe! Never, ever have I been shocked more! I wasn’t this shocked the day I learned I was a Genie. Once I realized I was a Genie I became intrigued to learn more, develop more Genie character and primarily learn to adapt to the fact that I was just different. Knowing it was one thing but, well seeing it was quite another. Let me tell you, being a Genie is absolutely amazing! I cannot imagine anything more fascinating or comparable than a Genie…and then along came the Basic B…..

  I’m not sure who, what or why Mac Cosmetics came up with the idea to name a Girls’ Eye Shadow Palette and Highlighter  line “Basic Bitch but the Genie was personally offended. At first I thought is was a hoax and I had no idea who would play such a horrific trick on MAC Cosmetics. Determined to get to the bottom of this mystery. I began my research and to my dismay, this in fact was not some hoax to reel me in to sabotage my commitment to MAC. This “Basic Bitch” theory was real. It was so real that it is  advertised as a Girls’ Eye Shadow Palette Line. I learned on July 24, 2017  launched the palette: Basic Bitch. Other palettes  to trend thereafter to include Rockin’ Rebel, Mischief Minx, Fashion Fanatic, Prissy Princess, and Unapologetically Power Hungry .

Beginning August 3, 2017 will mark the date when one may add one to six Girls palettes. Each palette will accompany eight shimmer and matte shades and one illuminating shimmer shade for a competitive price of  $39.50 at  any M.A.C. store or online at There is much controversy surrounding Mac’s decision to introduce such a touchy named collection “Basic Bitch”.  As I said earlier I  found such introduction showcased in an email sent to me via MAC Cosmetics. I was completely shocked and could not believe what I was reading! I mean who actually wants their little girl referred to as “Basic Bitch?” I could perhaps tolerate Prissy Princess or even Fashion Fanatic but I’m not too certain about Basic Bitch. That title alone carries a significant meaning and I see DANGER all around it. Please follow The Vintage Genie and post your views of how you feel with regards to the Basic Bitch.
