The Balm Cosmetics courts controversy with new ‘racist’ Meet Matt(e) Trimony eyeshadow palette

A new eyeshadow palette from beauty brand The Balm Cosmetics is creating a stir online due to the apparent racist connotations of the color names.

Despite receiving positive reviews online for its efficacy, The Meet Matt(e) Trimony eyeshadow palette is causing confusion over the supposed ‘racist’ names for the nine different colors within the palette.

The colors have been given the name forename ‘Matt’ with surnames that allegedly correspond to that hue, such as Matt Lin for a pale, yellow tone, Matt Ahmed for a dark black shade, and Matt Kumar for a brown color.
