The dubious hits keep coming. Sephora faced an online maelstrom from customers and activists who were offended by a shade of lipstick dubbed ‘Celebutard’ that was being sold in stores as a part of Kat Von D’s makeup line. The product is reminiscent of recent product debacles such as Urban Outfitter’s “Obama black” T-shirt and JC Penney’s “I’m too pretty to do homework” girls 7-16 clothing line.

Following multiple petitions and angry Facebook posts about mocking the disabled, Sephora pulled the lipstick and apologized. “It has come to our attention that the name of one shade of lipstick we carry has caused offense to some of our clients and others. We are deeply sorry for that.”

 Kathy-  Sephora has apologized, removed the product, and taken bad press over the incident.  Consider it a victory.

The Sephora company is hardly out to get you.  If you're really still hot and bothered about it, contact Kat Von D and her makeup organization who named the product and explain to them why it is so important.
