Here’s me rocking Revlon 640 Super Lustrous Lipstick.
We asked : How do you feel about some people saying that women with darker complexions shouldn’t wear bright colored lipsticks, eyeshadows, etc.?
Responses we’ve gotten so far: “I feel it constantly demeans us and only demonstrates that opinions towards dark skinned women have not changed. I find it especially disheartening when I hear other blacks making such comments. It is ignorance, fueled by a eurocentric standard of beauty that seeks to demolish any self-esteem that black women have and uphold the oppressive racial status quo”.
“People are entitled to their opinions….their opinions doesn’t mean its what is right or true. I feel a person should wear WHAT they want, HOW they want. To me it is an expression of your own unique ART. The ..makeup, fashion, and beauty is a way of showing creative expression”.
“I really don’t care if I like it I wear it point blank period”.

I sometimes want to talk about colorism with my mom, but I don’t. She’s completely white passing and I’m obviously black. As a small child, I recall knowing that I was black, my sister was black, my dad was black, but I had no idea what my mom was.
