And the red undertone issue is more than mere speculation. According to the Kylie Cosmetics website, ALL of the deep dark concealer shades are meant for red undertones. Check out the description screenshots.
This means people behind the Kylie Cosmetics formula were AWARE they only created red undertones for the deep dark shades and just didn't care. Meanwhile the Fair, Light, Medium, Tan have variations of peach, pink, and yellow undertones.
Why are the lighter shades given variety — which means they have higher chances of finding a good skin tone match — while all dark women have to settle for red whether it matches their face and neck or not?
Are we supposed to just be grateful she did dark colors at all and just accept the crumbs the makeup industry sees fit to give us?
In the name of Fenty Beauty and other brands who say they care about dark skin tones and have the matches to back it up — I'll pass.
Once again, Kylie Jenner is fully earning the side-eyes Black women give her about her interest in diversity. As much as I wanted to, I don't buy her new "inclusion" cause just like I won't buy her concealer.
Kylie Jenner could still improve her makeup in the future, but at this stage — darker people deserve better than Kylie Cosmetics. Thankfully, there IS better out there.
Moving right along.
