Happy Friday, an overwhelming number of beauty experts are attacking a woman of color’s lips on MAC’s Instagram.
The photo’s from the cool girl-friendly Ohne Titel runway show, which was excellent. But online, good will toward women is alive and kicking. Today, your daily ignorance takes the form of countless comments on a majorly buzzed about MAC fashion photo. It’s this totally run of the mill picture of a woman with a deep royal purple-y gloss on her full lips, and it’s gathered all the terrible people in the same spot. Here, see how these
human garbage awareness spreaders continue the grand tradition of being shocked, disgusted, and amused by the size of this woman’s mouth. Lovely, welcome, and needed.
Also great, this one picture of a stunning face has ignited a good old exchange of racial stereotypes too. Another day, another way to make it about white people. Encouragingly, numerous folks are knocking down the haterade with positivity. Some are talking black erasure and citing Kylie Jenner’s face as proof that full lips are A.O.K. on Caucasians but not when they’re naturally occurring on women of color. Anyway, cue “Formation,” and if you want this shade of purple MAC can probably help you with that. Sidenote: MAC has always offered an in-touch selection of foundations, so at least women have that?
We’d love to finish this, but we had to take the train to Coney Island and fling our Macbook Air in to the sea.
