Here's Why Beauty Fans Are Slamming YSL's Concealers

Yves Saint Laurent's attempt at diversity has landed them in hot water.

Yves Saint Laurent needs to do better. That's what many beauty fans on Twitter are saying after promo photos of the brand's All Hours Concealer began making the rounds online this week, BET reports.

The offending pic shows three models, all of (somewhat) different skin tones, showing off swatches of the All Hours Concealer on their arms. The only problem? The line is comprised of only six shades and there's not a single one that remotely matches the dark-skinned model.

Understandably, beauty fans on Twitter were pissed, and called YSL out for their disappointing attempt at diversity.


Has the beauty industry learned nothing from the success of Fenty Beauty? If brands aren't moved to be more inclusive because it's the right thing to do, then hopefully the potential to turn a profit will be enough to inspire widespread change, once and for all.
