I was looking into when a cosmetic item came into play and how or who would have made it something more than just an item, and I found this very interesting article about a man named Robert T. Plate’, and for me what made it more interesting is that he was from Michigan and went to U of M (the University of Michigan, Go Blue), so if you didn’t know already I’m a Michigan girl and U of M is my collage I grew up rooting for. This man worked at GM (General Motors) as an engineer so who would have thought an engineer would have come to make and produce cosmetics like the Trio-Ette? Questionable as it is to me, even though it was short-lived, I really found this article remarkably interesting and if you would like to read it, I’ve added the link. https://www.makeupmuseum.org/home/cosmetics-history/
The house of Plate’ company was established in 1944 by Robert Plate, who added the hyphen after the (E) to maybe make it sound more intriguing, I don’t understand my self of how or why that hyphen would change anything that Plate’ did or made, maybe he was trying to change himself, I do not know but can I get a hyphen after the an in my name? I am laughing out loud.
Years after Plate’ started his journey it ended as he started those things everyone loves SCAMS, you believe that? even back then companies would pull scams on people, for me, I despise people that don’t have anything better to do than scam innocent people out of their hard-earned earnings and I am one who believes in karma, and karma will get them one way or another.
Plate’ had bigger names coming into play that he couldn’t compete with, does the name BeneFit sound familiar? Well, it does to me, they have great products and I hope one day I can be as big of a company as they are, so after your done reading support My Makeover Madness and help me become my dream. The photo of the ad ran for an all in one with powder-sifter and puff on one side, and textured rouge on the other, and in the handle a matching lipstick, how about that compact, I think it is clever, and the pricing on the items is phenomenal and id like to go back to that low price for cosmetic products.
