This transphobic, sexist makeup brand just tried to come for Manny MUA in the most evil way
Wow, way to be inclusive
by Ari Bines
One of my favorite makeup artists, Manny MUA, was slammed by a lash line called Lashify after Manny uploaded a video tutorial using the $125 DIY lash extensions. Manny called it "a hard no" and thought the lashes weren't worth the price.
Lashify owner Sahara Lott was not too happy about Manny's review of her product and took to Instagram live on the Lashify Instagram account to lash out (loool) at the popular face beater.
Lott said of Manny, "No matter how much makeup you wear, you're still a dude." Now while Manny is not trans, that ugly comment is dripping with transphobia.
What's the matter, Sahara? Mad he looks better than you? Or just angry that he didn't like the flimsy eye-spiders you're trying to pass off as worth $125?
Lott claims Manny didn't follow directions on the packaging and recommended he do it without the full face of makeup he already applied. Then, they asked he do a "proper" review of their $125 lashes in their Instagram story:
But the shade didn't stop there. The brand then posted this sexist and dare I say transphobic message within their feed:
Word got around to Manny and he posted snapshots of the Instagram story and the post onto his Twitter captioning it "I don't think the brand liked today's video."

And after Lashify posted the Insagram live story, they received a ton of backlash.
Wow… how unprofessional😳

When did he say he wanted to look like a girl when he puts makeup on? He just wants to be a dude with makeup

They've now set their Instagram to private
