Fact: We all have lips.
Sometimes they’re dry, or thin, or the bottom one is fuller than the top one.
But you wouldn’t know it scrolling through Instagram. Not with FaceTune, Afterlight, VSCO or any number of the photo editing apps that blur out any perceived imperfections.
That’s why it’s really quite brilliant that cosmetics brand MAC reposted a photo of a real human pair of lips wearing lipstick, complete with upper lip hairs.
It wasn’t until MAC requested to regram the image that it gained traction – at the time of publishing, the post has over 125,000 likes and 1,000 comments.
Some of those comments include criticisms of the model’s facial hair being left in.
“She needs to do her upper lip… Those hair on upper lips, demand to be plucked… That stash tho… They couldn’t Photoshop her whiskers out?” some of the comments read.
Thankfully, the positive comments (and guenuine interest in the lipstick) outweighed the negative ones.
