Do you still remember when the internet went crazy over John Mayer’s revelation of his skincare routine on Snapchat back in February? In case you missed it, the singer/songwriter demonstrated how he takes care of his skin, complete with his recommended (hella expensive) skincare brands and his biggest secret to looking young and having healthy, glowing skin: Being dead inside, a.k.a. “not loving anyone” as of the moment. (We broke down his skincare routine here.)
Since Mayer is basically single and without any new music to promote, he has had more time to vlog–to beauty vlog, to be exact. There was his eye shadow review, which happened last week, currently featured on his Instagram highlights. For something more recent, Mayer also reviewed Chanel’s We Love Coco press box.
The major cosmetics brand may have heard about his beauty vlogging skills, especially when Mayer tested swatches of Chanel eye shadow on his own eyes, explaining he was doing some color study on some things. He has now moved on to the next level, reviewing more Chanel beauty products: lipsticks, tints, compacts, and brushes. Here’s his unboxing video:
As Mayer is apparently now on Chanel’s list of “vloggers” to send products to, we wonder if there will be another set of cosmetics coming his way, maybe not just from Chanel but from other beauty brands too. The thing, though, is his beauty vlogging style isn’t quite like the usual; we don’t even know what his favorite lipstick shade was among the Chanel loot, and whether any of the products are easy to use and long-wearing. For now, it seems novelty entertainment is Mayer’s schtick.
But may we suggest he do a contouring tutorial, or how to put on eyebrows, perhaps? Or maybe he can really get into the beauty vlogging spirit by being a guest on a RuPaul’s Drag Race episode, where a drag queen gets to do his face and teach him how to Sissy That Walk? Think about it, John: People will be legitimately curious to hear your opinions on makeup products once they’ve seen you in drag. We’re pitching these ideas to you for free. You’re welcome.
