Sephora’s Product Reviews Are the Best Thing You’re Not Reading

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

People will take to any corner of the Internet to let their hilarious side out. We've seen funny Amazon reviews before, but we're in love with these Sephora reviews pointed out by Sincerely Tumblr even more.

The best thing about some of these laugh-out-loud funny reviews is that, unlike Amazon's, sometimes it can be hard to tell which ones are telling the truth or just making something up for the joke. Like one reviewer named JessxcA, who wrote, "My make up survived 45 minutes of sex, if i could rate this above five stars i would."

Or another who writes about Urban Decay's eyeshadow primer potion, "The first time I used it, I found out that my boyfriend of 2 years had cheated on me with someone for 6 months," user Serenaokay writes. "I cried for 2 days straight, and my eyeshadow and liner stayed in place perfectly. This product is amazing."

Some who wrote that they traded their kidneys or "their families on the black market" are clearly joking. We hope.

Several hilarious reviews were centered around a sold-out and hard-to-find Swarovski brush.
