Lupita Nyong'o Named New Face of Lancôme


Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong'o just picked up her first big endorsement deal with Lancome…

In a statement to the media Lupita said she was proud to represent Lancome and that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman's freedom to be herself.

Mexican born Lupita is the company's first Black spokesperson.

Congrats to Lupita, but wasn't Lyia Kebede the first Black face of Lancome?

And does this mean Lancome will provide shades that are accomodating to our skin? #shadenoshade

Oh so they like dark skin now.

Correction - Liya was the face of Estee Lauder... #mybad #iwearmac #iweartarte

AWESOME! Beautiful woman, beautiful smile, beautiful eyes, beautiful skin, beautiful spirit.

congrats to this cockeyed bed wench.

I know DSC (dark skin chicks) every where are finally happy they aint took an L over beauty.

there is a first time for everthing.

L'Oreal/Lancome are racist. They will try their darnedest to lighten her skin. `_'

Her looks are average and typical of an African. Nothing spectacular in my opinion. Regardless of her awards and endorsements...at the end of the day, she's being rewarding for playing a slave.

Tippie Toes said...

Oddly her face is getting on my nerves and I don't see the appeal like I used to.

She has never been beautiful to me but ironically NONE of the lancome models have been. Isabella Rossellini was pretty but not beautiful to me.

She is gorgeous, yes, but the oversaturation is typical...

Damn, I never noticed it but she does have a wonky eye. WOW, lol. Well none of us are perfect! Congrats Lupishita.

She has beautiful skin and hopefully one day she will develop her own skin care line. You heard it here first folks.

BeeGee do you find her attractive? LIke would you date?

She's a pretty woman, but I see myself tiring of her look. Eventually she's gotta change her hairstyle, makeup or she will be a great big bore.

Magick, how/why is Lupita "gorgeous" to you? Because majority of Black people say the same thing? Because she won an Oscar? I'm not trying to be funny, just wondering why YOU think she's worthy of being called gorgeous. What makes her gorgeous?

Anonymous said...

Funny how Bee Gee (with his Nigerian "wife") all of a sudden has an affinity for Lupita, but will call Naomi, Fantasia, and Kelly ugly.

Ms. Lee said...

I see women that resemble her daily. Her 'looks' are not a shock to me as they are to others. Anyway, cool that she is receiving endorsements.

Magick said...

11:08, since it is slow in the office today and I am pretty bored I will bite on this question. I find her gorgeous simply because I find pretty much all sisters attractive, no matter what shade of brown they are. I could care less about an oscar and it has nothing to do with what anyone else says about her. I am my own person and have my own thoughts and opinions.

Not trying to be funny either but did this answer your question?

Anonymous said...

11:08, a LOT of folks are on that bangwagon but Hollywood have been trying to make bitches who are BASIC gorgeous for years, ESPECIALLY WHITE ACTRESSES.

11:09. I had no idea BeeGee is married to a Nigerian woman. WOW. BeeGee, how long have you been married? Is your wife dark?

Lancome has the best luxe mascaras IMO and I also love rouge in love lipsticks and Tresor.

Anonymous said...

Magick, honestly, nah. Your answer sounds pretty generic. I have heard the same answers from majority of Black folks since Lupita burst onto the scene. I personally don't find her attractive simply because she was rammed down our throats for so long. She is flat chested and basically bald. And then she played a slave. I'm straight on her.

Anonymous said...

Lupita is UGLY! I don't care what anyone says. Enough with this "Black is beautiful" shit. Her "beauty" is forced and dark-skin bald women are the main ones forcing it. I like a woman with long hair.

Bread and Butter said...

Good for her! This is great news for women of color. Black is beautiful too.

Magick said...

@11:14, honestly your opinion is yours alone. Like I said, I find her attractive because I find pretty much all sisters to be so. Dark, light, short, tall and I only really just heard about her recently so no, haven't been following her nor did I see that movie she was in so if it is a generic answer that it sounds like then so be it.

*kanye shrug* Carry on...

Lmao, this chick is as basic as a white piece of bread. Lmao.

Bee Gee said...

@11:07am - Yes, she's attractive. I agree with the sentiment that Lupita is nothing out of the ordinary, but yes she's definitely a good look - I would date her.

@11:09am - It's Sucka-Free Friday, don't start. Fantasia and Kelly aren't ugly and I doubt I've ever referred to them as such. And I know I've never called Naomi Campbell ugly..outside anyway..

Anonymous said...

Umm, dark-skin women with fades have existed for YEARS. I am one them and I for one DID NOT jump on this girl's bandwagon and I refuse to. I've been wearing my hair short and faded since the late 1980s. Nobody every signed me to star in a movie or a make-up deal. My skin is also dark and smooth. Again, no one has ever approached me with Hollywood dreams. I'll be damned if I jump on this girl's bandwagon all because the power players in White Hollywood "approved" her looks all of a sudden. F*ck that.....and shame on Black folks for eating her up when they know that there's someone in their families who look just like her.

It seems to me that some of you have a problem with others' opinion that Lupita is beautiful. You are even questioning their opinion and going out your way to convince others as to why they shouldnt find her beautiful---now if thats not jealousy, I dont know what is! Like, why does it bother you so bad that A-list white men were at this girls feet on the red carpet? Most of all---it BURNS you up whenever a black man finds one of his own dark blk women attractive. Just look at the Ashanti post! Lupita looks good and she will continue to look good when she is way past 40! Deal with it!

Tippie Toes said...

Lupita isn't ugly but she isn't drop dead gorgeous - White hollywood is tripping right now.

Anonymous said...

Ppl are so quick to point out how dark girls are jealous of mixed----ppl never address how often its really the other way around. If you dont find Lupita attractive---then thats your opinion----but why put in so much over time trying to convince everyone else? Then you turn around and insult ALL dark skin women---like whats really your problem? Mixed ppl are slowly proving themselves to be really the ones who are hateful, insecure and jealous. As long as dark skin girls are being bashed then all is well-- but as.soon as one gets lots of praise, then fangs and claws come out. Halle Berry has a lazy eye too! So does Alicia Keys and she needs braces but why is that never brought up?

Bee Gee said...

@11:24am - What makes any woman attractive? She's got a nice shape, beautiful smile (very nice lips, imo), nice legs, seemingly nice/humble/genuine demeanor. There's nothing to dislike about her except for those that have grown tired of her popularity or feel like her being cast as a "cut above the rest of the dark-skinned women" is a slap in the face. I can sympathize with that sentiment although I feel like it's unfair to take shots at her because of the circumstances surrounding her popularity. I don't get that part..

Ms. Lee said...

Tippie---

Totally agree with you.

Anonymous said...

I'm a mixed woman and I don't find Lupita attractive. Has nothing to do with her skin tone. The whites of her eyes look yellow, one of her eyes is low, and she's too muscular. Just my opinion. Also, please stop trying to insinuate that all mixed women are jealous of dark-skin women. That sounds childish and all it does it create a war.

@MsLee youre mixed with Black and Korean. Why dont you think Lupita is gorgeous?

Anonymous said...

Simply beautiful. Her voice and her seemingly joy at just being. I think she would be pretty cool with or without all of "this". I think she likes being "Lupita". She's refreshing. Natural. Happy. Smart. She didn't get to Yale being a dummy. Go Lupita. Don't understand all the nastiness about her. So you see a lot of her. That's fame. So she has a wonky eye. That's life. So Lancôme doesn't make all our shades. Tell them. I like Lancôme products and will buy them.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I see she got some of you red bones shook. Don't worry red bones your skin bleaching Whitenicious endorsement deals are not in jeopardy. And also I want all of you no edges lacefront weave wearing chicks to start taking Hairfinity pills so you can grow your own hair. Having you own long locks instead of weave would be a nice Christmas present for yourselves and the rest of the community because them little mermaid weaves is played out. Even King Bee has stopped wearing them so no it’s time for you do the same. LOL.

And Stop hating on a Black Chick getting that paper. It’s sad and pathetic.

Tippie Toes said...

@MSLee
I'm happy for her accomplishments but someone did say it best here Hollywood is now accepting her looks as Beautiful when women who look like Lupita have been around forever. It's like when they say it's okay we all should fall in line.

Her beauty comse from within. She is an inspriration all black women , not nmatter what slade of brown they are. She made a movie and was tecognized for it, so I dont understand all of the hate. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but the anger and hatred that some of you show in unbeleivable. Be haapy for her her....Geez!

Anonymous said...

11:45 right because based off of these nasty comments from mixed breeds and gays, it is totally impossible for mixed chicks to feel jealous of darker girls? Mixed breeds can stink up these threads with testimony after testimony of how black girls envy them---but its never the other way around, right?
Funny thing is, black men are not the ones hyping up Lupita---its white men and white hollywood. So again, who are you really trying to convince that Lupita is so unattractive?

that's not a good photo of her. Must have been a rough night. she's looked much better, especially on the red carpet.

Ms. Lee said...

First 11:50---

Me being of Black and Korean ancestry has nothing to do with anything--particularly my stance on and my agreement with Tippie regarding Ms. Nyong'o and her looks. As I have already mentioned, I see beautiful darker toned Black women with natural fades and afros on a daily basis while I am at work at my university or just being out and about in Los Angeles. While I do think that she is not ugly, I also do not think that she is gorgeous either. She looks okay and is well-kept. I just do not understand the shock value. It is almost symbolic of darker toned, natural haired women being recognized all of a sudden, when in all actuality, they have existed right here, all along, with everybody else. It should not take one woman to catapult 'dark-skin' and 'natural hair.'

Tippie---

Exactly. I was in college in the late 1980s and early 1990s and my best homegirl--still to this day--was/is a regal, dark-beauty with a natural fade. She has been beautiful all of her life and it did not take Ms. Nyong'o to make my girl feel 'beautiful' or 'accepted.' Quiet as kept, Grace Jones is the quintessential dark-toned, natural haired beauty in my opinion.

No one is slandering dark Black women, but now you all want to call mixed women "mixed breeds?" Is that necessary or are you bitches just insecure by default though?

Light skin women with blond weaves are boring and a dime a dozen in CA where swirling has been going on for many decades. Light skin or biracial women only get shine when they life in the Midwest or the Southeast. Everywhere else in the country biracial women are just ordinary and nothing special. If you think being a redbone means something to visit LA or NY. You will want to kill yourself after you see how drop dead gorgeous Black women are of any shade and they all got hot careers and are dating self-made wealthy men that are not athletes and rappers.

Lol at you feeling some type of way at being called "mixed breeds" when its your confused ass always bringing up how you are mixed with another race. You automatically ASSume that its your other race why some black women hate you---never the fact that you just might simply be a repulsive bitch---its ALWAYS because you're mixed, especially when it comes to true black women. You bring up your mixed race every chance you get---now you're offended at the "mixed breed" label?
And jealous default? Find another blame tactic, please. Nobody gives a shit about your mixed features like you want to believe. Get over yourself!

.I have a question for all the people that think she's ugly. What makes her ugly in your opinion? Is it her kinky short unprocessed hair? Or is it her dark skin? Or is it her skinny frame? Or is it her soft spoken voice? Or is her humility in spite of her Ivy League educated? What really is eating you Gilbert Grape? LOL.

Btw, I'm not expecting a rebuttal. These questions are too deep for the type of Black people that comment on this cite. LOL.

IMNOTGONEBEABLETODOITBUTIWILL said...

She is a natural beauty period! She doesn't have any blonde stressed out weave, fake butt, fake nose or fake breast. To all that is saying that they see women exactly like her and Hollywood is not knocking down their doors; this is the reason that you should be happy for her.

How is she being forced down anyone’s throat is beyond me?

She has been in a major movie, just like other celebrities and promoted the movie, under contract. She has won an Oscar for it. She interviewed, like every other celebrity has done, coming off a big win. What she has done, has been done before by up and coming new actresses and actors. What has she done to anyone of you personally?

Self hate is an ugly thing and she has not done anyone any harm nor has she caused anyone to lose their home behind promotion. She is an ACTRESS and this is part of her job. She is also a brand (sorry to bring this up) and it is also her job to make more money for herself through endorsements.

Some ppl just cannot be happy for other ppl's success!

Magick said...

Always thought Grace Jones was attractive as well. Especially when she hit Eddie Murphy with the "No man can resist this puzzy"....

I don't get how every third thread in here turns into some kind of "color" war. When you get right down to it, black/melanated/colored or whatever title you choose to call yourself doesn't actually matter because we are a beautiful people who come in ALL shades. Celebrate the diversity we as a people are instead of arguing constantly about light vs dark, that is just silly and asinine. We are a rhythmic and spirited people who has influenced all peoples across the globe so be proud of that, no matter what shade you are.

Grace Jones is brilliant and extremely lovely. I still laugh at her in 'Boomerang.' But yes, you are correct. These threads always turn into the 'dark vs. light,' and the 'mixed vs. non-mixed.' You see how someone asked me why I do not find Lupita attractive as a Black/Korean woman? What, exactly, does my racial identities have to do with my opinion on this woman? But see, that is the over for the under; these people are so strange and insecure on varying levels.

Anonymous said...

@Tippie, Ms Lee and Magick: So if a person doesn't find a dark-skin Black woman attractive, they're automatically a self-hater? Also why is this ONLY said when the woman is Black and dark-skin? I agree with all of y'all. Lupita looks alright, but if I say that some person will come in here and say that I'm a self-hater. Sorry for the rant but my question again is:

WHY IS IT THAT PEOPLE WHO DON'T FIND DARK-SKIN BLACK WOMEN ALWAYS CALLED "SELF-HATERS"?? WHY CAN'T PEOPLE RESPECT OTHER PEOPLES' PREFERENCES? SORRY, BUT MY EVERY WOMAN IN MY FAMILY IS LIGHT-SKIN WITH LONG HAIR. THIS IS WHAT I GREW UP AROUND AND NOW MY WIFE IS MIXED, LIGHT AND WITH LONG HAIR.

So tired of this dumb ass topic. Why would you even care if someone didnt like you? Did you have a chance with that person in the first place?

Magick said...

@Ms. Lee, I agree totally. Grace Jones I loved as well in Conan the Destroyer, especially when she was telling the white chick how to grab a man. Yes, I saw that and wondered what the hell that had to do with anything at all. I guess they figure since you are mixed that would somehow sway your opinion of her? *shrugs* That question made absolutely no sense. I find it extremely disheartening to see these threads turn that way but on the other hand, I DO know the root cause behind alot of it. Doesn't make it any better to swallow but still....I think you get my point

To Ms Lee/12:02 Sorry I didnt try to bring up your race but because youre mixed I automatically assumed that you were stuck up because a lot of mixed women are. Sorry. I think Grace Jones is pretty too.

This woman wears makeup like magic. I love seeing bright colors and metallics on her. I was hoping she would get a beauty endorsement. And Lancome is very high end.

I think she is going to be with this for a while because I think she will help sell a lot of products!

You guys are ALWAYS the victims, NEVER the cowardly perpetrators

KenyaDoll said...

You people are so goddamn hateful about this woman. If you don't find her attractive, then fine. So be it. But I am glad that she is getting this endorsement.

I think Lupita is a very pretty woman regardless of her skin tone. I have seen better looking dark-skinned, short hair/bald African women than her like for example that girl Nnenna Agba who was on America's Next Top Model Cycle 6 (she was the bald Nigerian girl who had the clingy white boyfriend). Now she is beautiful even though she is a bitch.

If Lupita was light-skinned, she will still be pretty to me! If she were brown, blue black, jet black, cinnamon brown, WHATEVER, she would still be pretty. It's her features that are pretty.

You all are so goddamn hateful. But I guess that is because you all are used to hoes like Draya and Kenya Moore, huh?

Bee Gee said...

@Ms. Lee - Lol no doubt. I think I've seen that silhouette mimicked in more pieces of art than I can count.

Magick every woman in my family (real talk) is light skin with long hair and fine textures. This is probably because we are mixed with French but yeah, that's all I seen growing up, so I'm attracted to lighter mixed looking women with long hair. Even in high school, I was only attracted to the light girls and now my wife is mixed with long hair. Doesn't make me a self-hater. I just like what I like. But I'm tired of darkskin women calling every person a self-hater just cause they prefer people who don't look like them.

Your family is only light with long hair because they were raped by white men. Lupita is natural black, like our true ancestors .....
But truth is, white men were raping black women and producing mixed race children....

IMNOTGONEBEABLETODOITBUTIWILL said...

It turns into Dark vs. Light, because of the said comments, she is alright, there is nothing special about her, and I see women just like her everyday and blah blah blah.

But let it be Beyonce (I hate to bring her up), Lauren London, Rihanna, or even Aaliyah (yes Aaliyah), these very same women will get praises for their beauty and how great their bodies look over Lupita; even on her (Lupita) best day.

This is why Dark vs. Light has been an issue, for a very long time, among the black community.

Some one said don't bring up self hate, but how many of you can say that Viola Davis didn't received the same exact treatment that is being issue to Lupita for her looks.
Because I remember, some ppl said she is a good actress, but her nose is too big and her smile is too wide, etc...

@Ms. Lee - I can't deny that. Grace Jones is an original that many have tried to copy. She's definitely dope in a way that few could ever figure out. I'd have to say that the time I found her most sexy without a doubt is: VAMP. I might have to find that movie over the weekend. I think in a lot of ways, Grace is that pic you posted. She's art personified, with a unique signature that couldn't be forged. Nice one.

Once again....you dont have to find dark skin women attractive. But why are some of you working so hard to try to convince others of your beliefs? Its as if you dont like dark women-- but you dont want anyone else to like them either. You troll these threads and use every chance possible to insult black women even when it isnt about them. You blame and attack them for thoughts, comments etc even when you cant prove that blk women are the ones making the comments. Its as if all your hype, livelihood and existence depends on keeping black women down. You are cowards that use the blogs to keep the fuckery going. I see you.

Let's all get a moment of clarity here.

Just because someone finds Lupita ugly or average is not "hating" or has self hatred.

Just because someone finds Lupita gorgeous or pretty doesn't mean they're on any bandwagon.

Maybe folks just have different opinions and they truly feel that way. I personally don't see anything remotely pretty about her. It's not her skin color it's her face. She is just not pretty to me.

Yes Alicia Keys, there are many but I'm not really monitoring shit like that feel me? Terry Crews wife is a bit different looking it's a lot out here that's why the light skin dark skin debate is dumb af because we are all individuals first, who should unite based on humanity and not race, creed or religion.

Tippie and Bee Gee wtf yall talking about?

Tippie Toes said...

I'm talking about some of these comments just going left - you know like crude/y left.

Ms. Lee said...

Bee Gee---

Spare me. This is silly, I know, lol.

1:17---

I will entertain you--in all seriousness:

Alicia Keys, Nicole Ari Parker, Rashida Jones, Rosario Dawson, Zoe Saldana, Marjorie Harvey, Tracee Ellis Ross, Chudney Ross, Tisha Campbell, Mariah Carey, and Tameka Cottle are not attractive to me at all. I will say though, that Halle Berry IS definitely beautiful to me, as is Queen Latifah, and LisaRaye.

I have reached my 'silly' quota for the day now, babe. No more questions.

Tippie Toes said...

LOL@MsLee

Ms. Lee said...

Tippie---

I am playing, but also being serious. Those first eleven ladies that I mentioned are not attractive to me all.

Anonymous said...

Dang I go to lunch and come back and 1hour later and it's over 100 comments. Is Lupita the new Beyonce? LOL

Anonymous said...

Don't mention Beyonce and Lupita together. Lupita is ugly.

Tippie Toes said...

@MsLee
The sad thing they aren't to me either and that's why I was laughing because you had them on roll call LMAO and yes Queen Latifah and Halle Berry(her persona at times???) but I love Queen.

Ms. Lee said...

Tippie---

Minus her 'love' life or lack thereof, Hally Berry has been beautiful all of her life. Queen Latifah is as well, and I think that LisaRaye looks great for her age. Also, I think that Terry Ellis (from 'En Vogue') and Holly Robinson-Peete are pretty. Oh! And Phylicia Rashad is my all-time favorite beauty.

TRACEE ELLIS ROSS AND HER SISTER CHUDNEY LOOK LIKE TRASH! THEY HAVE THEIR MAMA'S UGLY EYES! *THROWS UP*

Bee Gee said...

Lol @ Ms. Lee

Magick said...

@Ms. Lee, I agree with Terry Ellis because that was my favorite one of the four. Seems like Holly Robinson-Peete hasn't aged at all since 21 Jump Street.

Tippie Toes said...

@MsLee
I agree with everything you said. I saw Holly Robinson Peete on a commercial this morning and I had to do a double-take I was like DAMN she looks good!

Instead of being jealous because Lupita got a coveted beauty contract let's be happy that this well- spoken, intelligent, humble Ivy League educated African Black women got the contract. Would some of your proud mixed Black folks rather the contract goes to yet other White women?


1.Be happy that at least we don't have to cringe when she is asked a question on current events and cross our fingers and pray to God that she answers intelligently.

2. Be happy that we might not have to ever worry about her sex tape coming out.

3. Be happy that we don't have to worry about being asked to be in King Magazine or in a rap video.

4.Be happy that she doesn’t act ghetto because she ain’t about that life.

5.Be happy that she got her acting and film training at Yale so when Hollyweird is done with her she can make and direct her own films instead of relying on Tyler Perry to put her in a movie.

Can we at least be happy for her for these reasons alone? I’m asking this of the mixed chicks that thinks she’s underserving because she’s 100% African.

Ms. Lee said...

Magick---

Terry is beautiful and she was my favorite in the group as well. Holly is taking good care of herself.

Tippie---

Yes, Holly RP is beautiful.

Zoe used to be cute. She didn't look haggard and run-down with them big dark circles under her eyes in "Drumline" and "Center Stage" and "After Sex". I don't know if it's drugs, stress, and/or lack of sleep/food/water that makes her look so bad these days.

I thought Rosario was more "hot" than "beautiful". Rashida is okay, but she seems like she has an attitude. I agree about the others you mentioned, I don't find them attractive. I don't think any of them are truly UGLY, they just don't do anything for me.

Tippie Toes said...

@2:01
I think we deaded that debate.

Bee Gee said...

Speak on it @ cns

Sade is Effortlessly Drop Dead Gorgeous and she is half African.

Magick said...

@IMNOT

No argument there. One of my favorite all time singers

IMNOTGONEBEABLETODOITBUTIWILL said...

Thank you @CNS and I am gone for the rest of the day, as I listen to my Sade's playlist.

Some of you should listen to the words of 'Immigrant'.

Everyone have a GREAT and Wonderful weekend, stack up on your allergy medicine, I know I will.

Anonymous said...

Sade is HALF African; key word: HALF. @Bee Gee, I know that you think Kenya Moore is stank and rank, but I honestly think she's beautiful. Do you think KM is hot or not?

Anonymous said...

Sade is mixed though. So her beauty is because both of her mixtures. African peoples with European/Arabic blood in them are the most beautiful. Sorry y'all.

Bee Gee said...

@2:25pm - Definitely. Kenya's a beautiful woman and back in the day she was ridiculously sexy from head to toe.

Iman has a wonderful line of make up that includes shades of all women, and her product is very high quality. MAC, is one of my favorites and they also have a quality line, and make-up artists that make all women look their best. L'Oreal is my go to make line, for my skin tone, which is a lovely cocoa. Lancome NEVER had shades for women of color. I will not buy it, because since they are just cashing on the Lupita, the "IT" woman of moment. To hell with Lancome, it I'm wrong, which I doubt, let me know and I'll stand corrected. Their product is in high line department stores with snotty, caussaian personnel. Perhaps this will provide jobs for women color, make-up artist since they would eat rat turds rather than touch your face.

@CNS....you better speak on it as BeeGee said. I agree and CNS you appear very intelligent to me. I noticed its always some intelligence in what you post.

Haters talking but Lupita is winning.

Anonymous said...

@12:47 Sounds incestuous. So it appears that you wanted to have sex with a family member, that's why you're attracted to lighter women. How telling.

Anonymous said...

Lupita may be ugly, to you, but what is cute about Beyonce 4 nose surgeries, breast implants, lipo, bleached skin tone, and white woman's weave, Beyonce look like a younger Meryl Streep, with that thin cocaine snorting nose, y'all need to get it together.

Her stylist is on point. I love the vivid colors and the choice of clothing.

Why do lightskin people trip out when a brown/dark is extremely gorgeous and gets mad attention. Get the fuck over not everyone is pressed over you. Damn! People can use Beyonce and others against Lupita but she is educated, NATURALLY beautiful, smart and classy.

over yourself

But Lancôme doesn't even MAKE shades for us black women who are even a lil lighter than her much less for those as dark as Lupita. Kind of getting tired of this parading her around...it's like that fad when all the white actors were adopting little African babies or like when Paris Hilton stared this thing about walking around with a small dog under your arm like it's a purse.

Anonymous said...

Dark skin will never be a fad. The Blacker the berry the sweeter the juice best believe. Light skin priveledge will always be a reality but biracial women are always overrated and put on a pedestal just for being light. But they're the first ones to act like they don't know this. That's that entitlement mindset. Fuck outta here!!!!! Lupita is not only fine she's educated and accomplished and knocking dine barriers of beauty all with a smile bad confused admirers will deal.

EVERYONE has a smaller eye than the other. Look at YOUR photos...stop reaching for a flaw.

Anonymous said...

Eyes are usually the same size and volume (since birth). What Lupita (and likely 99.999% of the human race) has is that one eye lid droops slightly than the other.

The contempt for UNMIXED AfRAkan DNA that produces AUTHENTIC DARK BLACK individuals like Lupita Nyong'o is perplexing and suspicious.

UNMIXED Authentic DARK BLACK BEAUTY is of INDIGENOUS ORIGINS and was once HOMOGENOUS way-y before recessive (defective) mutated genes caused DEPIGMENTATIONS resulting in light and white.

Lupita is a fine example of UNMIXED DARK BLACK BEAUTY. I see her as a fine representative of Black folk--one who makes the global AfRAkan family proud.

As a person of AfRAkan ancestry and heritage, Lupita is more relevant to me than depigmented celebrities whose images OVER-SATURATE white and Black media.

"Why do lightskin people trip out when a brown/dark is extremely gorgeous and gets mad attention." <<--Because they know they are by-products who are validated by degenerative Caucasian DNA.

She looks good in bright colors, It brings out her complexion very well. I'm happy for her. God is pouring out his blessings upon this young lady. She will do well. My only hope is she drop that Somalian boyfriend and find her an educated, nice young man.

Anonymous said...

@11:14 AM I don't think Lupita is gorgeous, but she is pretty. She's very photogenic, has flawless skin, a beautiful smile, nice teeth, and nice features i.e. she doesn't have monkey feature - flat, wide nose like some African American people in the U.S.

Calling someone unattractive because they played a role in a movie you didn't like is just as idiotic as @Magick's answer for saying all sista's are beautiful. All sista's are not attractive, just like all light skinned women aren't attractive. Like it or not, there's ugly women and men in every race.

Halle Berry played a bed wench in a slave movie. Is she ugly for playing that role?

<<==It's so sad that AfRAkan DNA is not appreciated in its WHOLENESS and COMPLETENESS. The idea that it must be diluted--to produce beauty--with the by-products of a VIOLENT MUTATION that included sexual deviancy-- incest and bestiality--resulting in the animal-hybrid genetics of European and pale Arab is a grave insult.

DaisyDooks said...

"i.e. she doesn't have monkey feature - flat, wide nose like some African American people in the U.S." <<==Monkeys are GENETICALLY related to the Albino-Neanderthal-Primate Caucasian--not those of AfRAkan ancestry...unless they have admixture.

A key distinction of AfRAkan blood is the DOUBLE-HELIX, COIL, SPIRAL, KINKY hair strands. No primate has that.

I can relate to your comment. I'm a brown skinned black woman. My dad, two brothers and a few male cousins are light skinned.. As a young girl, I was always attracted to light skinned men. When I was in high school, the first guy to ever be attracted me was a light skinned black guy. I didn't go looking for this guy. It just happened naturally. I also love tall, dark and handsome black men. I dated a guy in college who tall dark and handsome. Basically, I like any good looking brotha of any skin tone. It doesn't matter to me. Do you!
