Less is always more—unless you’re a beauty vlogger. The more you pile on, the better, as we saw with Josefin Lillakas’s “100 Layers of Foundation” video. Just when you thought it was safe to watch a beauty video without cringing, another cringe-worthy one comes along.
This time, blogger Mayra Isabel dedicated her poor lips to 100 layers of liquid lipstick in different shades. The result looked painful. At first (as in the first ten or so layers), her pout looked shiny and full. After 37 layers, her lips were dry as a desert. “My lips are so cracked!” she said in the video. By the fiftieth layer, the lipstick flaked under each new layer. It was all so textured.
By the eighty-ninth layer, Mayra’s lips were peeling tremendously. “I have so many layers on it’s actually peeling from the side,” she said. She also zoomed in on her mouth after the one hundredth layer and it was not pretty. If you’re not sure whether liquid lipstick is for you, do not watch this video.
