The line named Date Night, by Youthforia, had previously been criticized in October 2023, for not having diversity in the dark base colors, and not being inclusive. As a solution, the brand launched another 10 new shades, the darkest being a black pigment.

Negative reactions

The video published on social media, by influencer Gorilla George, has more than 11 million views and 2 million likes, where she compares black paint with foundation, causing a discussion and controversy about cosmetic racism. Gorilla says “What we're telling you is to take the browns you've already made and create base tones. Do whatever you need to do in the lab to make it a darker shade of brown.”

Other internet users also pointed out the fact that the product looks blackfacea form used in theaters in the 19th century to represent black people, creating exaggerated stereotypes, which is a racist practice. “Why do they put paint in a pot and call it foundation?”wrote one consumer.
