Phanny sponsoring Baby Quasar?

Although Michelle is a rich bitch, I'm willing to bet money this is a sponsor for Baby Quasar. What gets me is that she isn't using quasar for acne, she's using the quasar for fine lines and wrinkles. Of course her response to this is always "prevention is key". Bitch, you can prevent that shit by not tanning to the point you look like a bad leather bag, and not smoking. And no alcoholism... You get the point, it's not hard to avoid signs of aging. But it's going to happen eventually, unless you pull a Joan Rivers. Anyway, her Facebook is full of comments from her psycho fans. Only two people had something meaningful to say, and of course Phanny jumped to respond as soon as she felt like she had been found out. I screen capped a good bit, and the comments are probably slightly out of order.

Sorry for the highlight over Randomique's name. I was just doing a quick search for her comments because I saw them earlier, liked them, and when I came back later there were more comments. I was going to censor out the photos and names, but I figured anyone and everyone could hop on Phan's page and easily find these comments if they wanted.

Randomique's comment on advertising reminded me: A lot of people think that Phanny only sponsors Lancome. In a way this isn't true, because Lancome is owned by L'oreal, a goddamn giant powerhouse of cosmetics. According to a pal of mine, L'oreal owns Maybelline, Lancome, Helena Rubinstein, Kiehl's, BioMedic, Vichy, Biotherm, Giorgio Armani Parfums, Ralph Lauren Parfums, Shu Uemura, Ombrelle, Redken, Matrix, Garnier, and La Roche Posay.

Now, how many times has Phan used Maybelline and Shu Uemura products in her videos? Quite often. She isn't stupid about marketing. So, I'm guessing she either IS sponsoring Baby Quasar, or she's TRYING to get to that point. I can't wait to see how her skin looks in 10 years with all of that anti-aging crap she's been trying to use. Sorry, Phanny, but expensive make-up and NASA technology can't be used to mask your greedy heart forever.

While I'm thinking about it, I'd like to apologize for any spelling and/or grammar errors in this post and in my rants on the screen caps. I'm recovering from a nasty sinus infection, and after reading only a few comments that killed my brain cells I stopped giving a fuck.

"Oh ho ho, shit! I got you good, you fucker!"

I will admit, I don't know an awful lot about Arissa Cheo, other than she's a gorgeous young woman living in LA. I don't know how she earns an income, who she dates, what she buys, or any of that juicy info. Some of my friends are fans of hers, simply because is pretty and creative. Fair enough, I do the same thing with lovely people. But it does look like Michelle Phan is copying her. I'm sorry, but but some of those resemblances are ridiculous and I can't pin them as a coincidence. Now a few, like the car mirror shot, a lot of people do that. But the photos with similar outfits, damn it screams ripoff. 

That last part is fucking gold. Who spends that much on a jacket? You do, Michelle. Quite often, I might add. This girl is digging herself the ultimate financially fucked hole. If you gave the average Joe $12,000 what do you think they would spend it on? Paying bills, get a different car/car repairs, paying off loans, going to college, anything important. Anything but a damn jacket that can't even be worn with different outfits or else it will look goofier than normal.

I don't know who made that image with the comparisons and jacket info, but sir or ma'am, I salute you.

MP updated her Facebook page claiming that she was going to decorate "without spending big bucks". I couldn't tell what was going on in the thumbnail, so I clicked the link to her Twitter and busted out laughing. What is "big bucks" to her? Can you image how much those shoes cost? We all know she spends what normal people consider "big bucks". Seriously, she spent thousands of dollars on a plain white couch, and lord only knows how much the rest of her furniture cost, since she seemed to have left just about everything behind in her villa in Florida. Decorating cheap? I highly doubt that.

Excuse me? No dresses?

So, we all know MP has gotten into a habit of taking "sexy" pictures that show off her cleavage. Gotta keep the old perv fans interested, just in case she needs a new sugar daddy. That aside, wtf is this shit? \

A dress from Bebe is never cheap. I'm guessing that dress was between $120-$180. But she claimed she "had no dresses". Excuse me? What happened to this fugly dress:

I don't remember how much that cluster-fuck was, and I don't care to go back and find out. Probably a few thousand dollars, like those weird looking blazers she bought from Australia. As long as it has a costs an arm and a leg, MP will buy it.

Misleading quotes

If you're not a stranger to the guru wold, you know of secretlifeofabionerd. Just about anyone that keeps up with her blog is familiar with this post, because a lot of us can relate. But the biggest thing that caught my attention in her post was this:

"Why I don't religiously follow her? 

Well, I use to follow her like  a god when she was RiceBunny on Xanga (during my sophomore/junior year of college).  It wasn't until she started to make You-Tube videos and placed this quote on her page that made me think twice "
Rembrandt would have never painted his beautiful portraits on a bumpy wrinkled ugly and old canvas, so why should you"-Michelle Phan.

I know it wasn't a direct hit towards me, but because of that quote she was no longer relate-able. It sucks because I do have a "bumpy" "ugly" "old" canvas. It sucks even more that because of that quote, I dare not to try any of her make up look because it wouldn't look good on this ugly canvas.  I don't hate MP. I hope you guys don't get any of that out of this blog. I hate that I HATE myself when I watch her videos.  Envy makes you turn into nawsty creatures. So to avoid being a monster and still holding my respects for her. I just don't watch her videos."

In case you didn't catch that horrid quote, let me pull it out on it's own:
"Rembrandt would have never painted his beautiful portraits on a bumpy wrinkled ugly and old canvas, so why should you" -Michelle Phan

Ouch, Michelle, kind of fucking mean don't you think? That quote can be taken different ways. One being that she thinks old people are ugly. She does use a ton of products that are labeled "anti-aging" or "ageless". I'm guessing she's afraid of growing old, more-so having the appearance. I suppose that wonderful saying "you're only as old as you feel" doesn't apply to her lavish gold digging lifestyle. But that quote also gives an idea of how high on herself she is. Now, maybe I am reading too deep into this, but we can all agree she's vain. I believe that Michelle has good skin because of genetics. One of my best friends has doll-like skin; no freckles, scars, or pimples to ever be seen, and her entire family is like that. But they don't decide to ditch their healthy diet and slather their skin in the most expensive anti-aging creams at the age of twenty-two!

Goodness, I am getting off topic. Anyway, the quote is just mean. Not every girl has perfect skin. Flawed skin can be caused by a bad diet, bad hygiene, hormone imbalance, illness, genetics, hell the list goes on and on. Not all of those problems are easy to control, and some of them can't be fixed. I do believe that Miss Phan would shit massive bricks if she ever had a cystic acne breakout on her face. Perhaps such a thing would knock her off of her high horse. 

Before I wrap this TL:DR post up, I want to discuss one more quote in this video. The entire video is cheesy, and everything she talks about is painfully cliche. But around 2:03 she says, "Physical beauty can only last for so long." Now, why do I get the feeling she isn't talking about death, but talking about how you look old and unappealing (in her world) by the time you hit 30? That is a horrible message to send out to fans. Especially considering her fanbase is made of up girls that aren't even ten years of age! Most of her dedicated fans are as old as fifteen, but they're too blinded by her fake smile to see what a phony she is. 

Even if Michelle's 15 minutes of fame are not up any time soon, I do hope that she stops sending such terrible messages to young fans. You don't have to have flawless skin to be beautiful. If anyone tells you that they're full of some massive steaming shit. And you don't have to be young to be beautiful. You don't lose you looks with age, they just change, and change is a part of life. Just like getting fifteen minutes of fame, moving to LA, and working full-time as a gold digger. Isn't that right, Michelle?

What happened to her pets?

Most of you may recall Mr. Bun Bun, who sadly passed away not too long ago. But what about her cat in Florida named Mia, her fish named Pluto, and her guinea pig named Mr. Snuggles?

Let's start off with the guinea pig (click the images to enlarge them):

Personally, I don't recall her saying what she did with Mr. Snuggles. If anyone has any information on that (or screen caps) please share.

Despite not being allowed to have pets, she got a fish and a cat:
Wow, you can barely see the fish.

Going back to the fish, it seems Michelle put the fish in a shitty giant cup with a giant castle to keep the cat out, but the cat ate the fish anyway. I call bullshit. That setup is fucking horrible for any fish. That fish probably died because it had little room to move.

Before I get to Mr. Bun Bun, let's talk about what happened to Mia. As seen above, Mia was adopted. However, drama on Twitter says otherwise:

You seem to be very bothered by anons, Michelle. Even more bothered that you were called out.
So, if Michelle and her roomie adopted Mia together, why wasn't her post "we" adopted a cat? Why was the housemate never mentioned before? Why did Michelle go on and on about how lonely she was and how NO pets were allowed?

No, Michelle, you don't keep a lot of your life private from the internet. If you had a roomie you would have blabbed about it.

There have been many times when Michelle said that the cat came with the house. What, did the cat come with the house like a couch or microwave? She's also claimed that Mia was a neighborhood cat. A lot of people believe she just left the animal, and there is enough evidence to support that.

Now, onto Mr. Bun Bun.

She featured Mr. Bun Bun in a lot of her videos, most likely to pull in a bigger audience by having a cute, fluffy animal by her side. Not too long ago, he sadly passed away from kidney failure. Her half sister is supposedly the one that posted "RIP Mr. Bun Bun" on Michelle's Facebook page. After this, Michelle's fans were nearly constantly asking her about the rabbit. And it took how many weeks for her to finally say that the rabbit died?! How heartless! Even more heartless is the fact that she never cared:

Now, I've heard from people that know Michelle in real life that she was in LA partying wither her current boyfriend Carl Choi while the rabbit was drying. The fact that she didn't put Mr. Bun Bun to sleep and let him die a painful death of kidney failure is bad enough, but the fact that she lied about being with him... I don't even know.

If anyone has any more screen caps or quotes, bring 'em on.

From an "Ex-Phan"

I guess this thing needs an into, so here we go...

I'm an ex-fan of Michelle Phan. I started following her not long after her fanbase on Xanga was formed. I had many friends who were obsessed with her and greatly praised her videos. We all thought she was a sweet and innocent person who honestly cared about girls and skin care. Later, we learned that Michelle was blinded by money, abused her pets, and was living way too deep and irresponsibly in her fifteen minutes of fame. Since her animals are gone, she hides behind religion. She enjoys running from criticism, and has deleted many comments and blocks the commenters, even if the comments are simple and kind observations or tips. And of course, she never says a word of thanks to any of her fans. It seems she forgot that her fans are what got her where she is, and what gets her that money on Google AdSense. I could go on and on, but if you found this blog you're probably well updated.

I will be pulling most of my information from, since that site is full of Ex-Phans that are sick of Michelle's lies and the manipulation of her young fans. Because unlike Michelle, I give credit where credit is due.

Don't bother trying to be a white knight here, it will be a waste of time. And don't claim that "haters" are the ones wasting their times. They're just people that wised up and saw Michelle for the fame hungry person she is now.
