An Enormous Correction: Ounces Vs. Fluid Ounces

It has recently been brought to my attention that I have been using ounces and fluid ounces interchangeably, even though they are definitely not the same thing at all.

A fluid ounce is a unit of volume equal to 1/128 of a gallon (US). It was originally the volume of one ounce of wine. An ounce, on the other hand, is a measure of mass that is equal to approximately 28 grams.However, you’ll probably be unshocked to learn that makeup products frequently do not have the exact same density as wine. Thus, a fluid ounce of any given makeup product will probably weigh substantially more than an ounce.

In conclusion: oops. I promise to be more diligent about properly labeling my terms in the future.
