INTERVIEW: Dencia Defends Beauty Cream ‘Whitenicious’ (Full Interview with Ebony Magazine)

A few weeks ago, Cameroonian singer Dencia released a highly controversial beauty product named ‘Whitenicious’ which is meant to be the answer to any dark spots or scarring problems. The singer has received severe backlash since then from every blog and social media platform you can ever imagine. The name of the product in itself has been considered offensive by many as it could imply that it is selling and encouraging self-hatred amongst women of colour and promoting the concept of bleaching and all of the assumed superiority that comes with it. Despite the backlash, Dencia stands behind Whitenicious and believes that she is in fact helping women overcome an obstacle.

By Posted on 5 4.2K

December’s here which means winter’s only just kicking in. Boots and Wellies have replaced our ever-so-comfy flats and courts.

But what are our favourite fall lipstick colours? This list covers some of the most popular dark lip colours everyone is sporting this winter. Here’s to putting your best pout forward this winter:
