"I'm over 50, I'll wear whatever makes me smile. It's on you if you don't like that. I spent way too many years caring about what others thought of me," commented one woman.

Another added: "I’m really glad you like your makeup, but don’t try to make others feel bad for how they’re doing theirs."

"See but you're talking to us older ladies who know by now we only need to please ourselves with our decisions. If YOU feel good ..wear it," commented a third.
