Illamasqua’s distinctive black & white face ad sparks backlash

By Michelle Yeomans

- Last updated on GMT

The global brand has received some negative attention on its’ Australian Facebook page with regards to a Christmas campaign ad it launched earlier in the month that features a model theatrically painted white next to the same model painted black.


Do you find this advertisment offensive?

  • Yes, I think it could be interpreted as racist

  • No, it is just artistic expression

  • I'm not bothered either way
