We’ve seen lots of strange things originate in China. From products to challenges, I think we’ve seen it all. Well, at least I thought we did until now. If you haven’t heard, there is a new viral video going around called the “Lipstick Challenge” and it isn’t as fun as it sounds.
When I first heard of it I thought maybe it’d be a challenge to apply your lipstick without looking in the mirror or even maybe doing it in the dark. But nope, it is neither of those. Instead, it promotes body shaming which we all know we don’t need more of.
Wait, how did I come to that conclusion? Well, because that is what it’s for. Basically, the challenge is to have a woman wrap her arm around the backside of her head and apply her lipstick that way. If she succeeds, it proves they have a petite head. Why that matters, I have no idea! In case you are curious to see it, you can check out the video here.
I think it’s safe to say that anyone will do anything for attention these days. And ladies, you don’t need to apply your lipstick in a weird way to prove anything. Apply that lipstick and rock it the beauty queen you really are!
I say that we make a new Lipstick Challenge one that embraces our beauty and is fun. I think we should start new viral videos that are fun and exciting. What do you say?
