Maybelline Racist? Finally Designs Makeup for Black Women But Sells Exclusively at Wal-Mart

Maybelline, I have SUCH a bone to pick with you! I became excited when I caught wind that the beauty brand designed 16 new shades for their Maybelline FIT Me foundation, that is until I learned where they’ll be sold. Details inside.

Like I said, I have so many issues with this news that I stopped eating my lunch to report it to you guys. First off, Maybelline has launched 16 new shades, which is great! But, looking at all the new colors made me question if they EVER made makeup for women of color? As you can see, they’ve been offering every color for every level of pale and tan white girls. Seriously, allllll these shades are new? Yet, they’re for the FIT Me brand? Its apparent Maybelline has been only fitting white girls faces. I can’t.

Secondly, they created darker shades, that’s great but why must you sell them EXCLUSIVELY AT WAL-MART?? I am low-key offended. I don’t shop at Wal-Mart. They could’ve sold this collection at CVS, Wal-Greens, Rite-Aid or Target but nope, Wal-Mart. I will be sticking to using L’OREAL True Match line because they’ve ALWAYS offered shades for every skin tone. Maybelline can go and suck it!
