When I joined Specktra I thought "hey, I'll learn about launches and products and maybe find some cool people on there that share my love (OBSESSION) for makeup." NEVER in a million years did I expect to find a community of such wonderful people!
In just the last few days I have witnessed PURPLERINNE offer to send ladies Fall Trend Palettes who couldn't get their hands on them, countless offers to CP for one another, MAC-GUY's COUNTLESS recommendations and swatches, and just today my awesome "skin twin" Michelle "SHELLCAT" offered to send me a "Whisper of Guilt" Highlighter that I was kicking myself for missing out on! Her Back Up! And she asked for NOTHING in return! Even when I tried to force feed her SOMETHING in exchange! Just a selfless act of kindness to a stranger. Now, maybe I shouldn't be saying this. Some people do good deeds for the simple joy it brings. But dammit I had to acknowledge the pure awesomeness of it! It's rare. It's special. And It deserves recognition. Michelle, you are a gem! The world should have more people like you in it!
Lots of people I know would just say all this Specktra posting, makeup website stalking, swatching, FOTD's, NOTD's, EOTD's, reviews, and recommendations is nonsense, but all of us on here know differently! We are a true community bonded by a love... And I for one, think it's pretty amazing how something as simple as makeup can bring people together in the nicest most sincere way!
So... I wanted to start this thread as a way of showing my Thanks to Shellcat and ALL Specktra members who go out of their way all the time to help each other and show kindness to each other! PLEASE share a "thank you" and story of someone who's gone out of their way for you. I'm sure there's MANY of these stories! And they really should be shared!
Maybe a way to find peace in the world is to make everyone a Specktra!!!
