I’m a bit of a beauty hoarder. I have tons of products and tools in my possession, ranging from run-of-the-mill to somewhat new and obscure. While recently organizing my drawers, I got to thinking: Would the average Joe even know what some of this stuff is? Luckily I have a fairly typical man living with me: my husband, Sean. I also have a 6-year-old son named Julian. Wouldn’t it be funny if my son could properly identify more beauty items than my husband? I put them to the test. It’s a beauty showdown, people.
I found several gadgets and cosmetics in my stash to use in my survey and cleverly covered any text that may reveal the object’s identity with washi tape. I then interviewed my husband and son separately. Both were extremely confident with my son exclaiming “That’s exactly right!” after each answer and my husband proclaiming at one point, “You’re talking to the wrong metrosexual.” For each object, I list what it is, both of their responses, and who gave the best answer. Points were given for creativity as well as accuracy.
