    Is “letting it breathe” a misconception on the part of people? Or is it a
    misconception on the part of ‘Mental Floss’ not realizing that we do know
    what metaphorical statements are? Letting something breathe is just
    allowing it to be exposed to the air.

    As someone who just started wearing makeup a couple weeks ago, this video
    is super helpful and well-timed. Thank you :)

    To get rid of clumps, just take a disposable mascara wand you can get from
    any ol’ drugstore and run it through your lashes after you pit on mascara.

    Your skin releases CO2, however it leaves the body through the nose via the
    circulatory system.

    Wow, a terrible video.

    Men spend X per month on products in a category does not contain any
    relevance to how much is spent on one product type within that category.

    Pimples are infections. The puss inside the pimple is the waste product of
    your body fighting the infection and cleaning out that infected area is
    generally a good idea.

  10. Ruben L Sanchez says:

    Am I suppose to just leave a huge and disgusting pimple on my face when I’m
    in public? Geez, thanks Elliot!

    About the last misconception: it’s better to get rid of them but first wash
    your hands and wash your face afterwards

    Wait, so…wrapping yourself in duct tape won’t suffocate you?

    Bad attempt at sounding heterosexual for this topic

    misconceptions about why youtube comments on this video haven’t been
    replaced with reddit comments even though I installed the alientube addon?
    some say it’s because i paused the addon, but really, it’s because you
    didn’t share this on reddit.

    How much money is there?

  19. Ellie Bearr says:

    No, you should probably test foundation on your chest. It’s a misconception
    to test it on your neck because your neck is often a lot lighter than the
    rest of your body and matching to this causes you to look washed out. That
    also looks ridiculous.
