TikToker calls out makeup company after dramatic eye reaction

A teenager is going viral after sharing her drastic-looking reaction to a popular makeup brand.

The 17-year-old, who goes by the name Zarina on social media, shared her issue in a video on her TikTok account, which has since been viewed more than 300,000 times.

In the clip, Zarina explains what happened when she attempted to apply a set of eye makeup from Huda Beauty, the brand founded by the makeup artist and blogger Huda Kattan.

“You’re probably wondering, ‘Zarina, why do your eyes look like this?'” the teenager begins her video, immediately revealing large, red splotches on her face.

Zarina goes on to tell her followers that she bought the brand’s Neon Obsessions Palette from Sephora, which she described as an “eye shadow palette.” She then flips over the makeup and peels back a label to reveal that the product is not intended for use on the eyes.

The 17-year-old also says she’s “disowning” Huda Beauty for the “hidden” warning.

“Are you freaking kidding me? It’s an eye shadow palette. And the fact that she tried to hide it. Cancel her,” Zarina concludes, referring to Kattan.

Zarina’s video immediately went viral, drawing hundreds of responses that shared her outrage. Others, however, were less sympathetic, saying the teen should have known better.

“Sis I ain’t trying to attack you but this isn’t anything new,” one commenter wrote. “Most bright pinks and reds stain and most of them have this warning.”

However, many who had used the product in the past seemed to share Zarina’s frustration. There are several negative reviews on Sephora for the palette, with several customers citing the eye warning as the biggest issue.

“I tried to take it off with a make up wipe and washed my face but the product stained my skin and I couldn’t get it off. Poor product,” one reviewer wrote.

“Stains the eye and the actual label that says not for the eye area is hidden under a sticker. why is an eyeshadow palette not for the eyes?” another added.
