Let’s discuss the Loreal Paris Munroe Bergdorf news and the future of Loreal products in DreaminLace content.
This week, I have dedicated my time to reading, learning and listening to be a better educated ally to the black community. I’ve taken time away from producing regular content on DreaminLace to focus on these efforts and as such haven’t been posting as I normally would.
All that said, this week some troubling news surrounding Loreal Paris came to light for me that has prompted me to reconsider my support of the brand. Especially ahead of a post I had planned to publish next week, ranking a variety of drugstore foundations — including a handful from Loreal.
Loreal Paris x Munroe Bergdorf
In 2017, Munroe Bergdorf’s modeling contract with Loreal Paris was terminated in response to her speaking out against racism and white supremacy. Recent events have led to this history of their’s understandably resurfacing and being brought to my attention by a number of news sources, including Fashionista.com.
I sincerely regret that I was unaware of this situation when it initially unfolded three years ago. Loreal products have been featured in a number of content pieces here on DreaminLace.com that have been largely circulated on Pinterest. Loreal has also appeared on my other social media channels and I’ve welcomed various releases from them with enthusiasm.
In light of everything, I have of course made the decision to pull Loreal from that drugstore foundation post I had planned for next week. I’ve also made the decision to not feature Loreal Paris products on DreaminLace moving forward.
A Place for All Women
From its inception, I founded DreaminLace to be a place for women — ALL women. As such, it’s very important to me that the brands I purchase from, feature and review support ALL women as well. Until I feel Loreal Paris honestly meets that vital standard, I will not continue to review or feature any of their products in DreaminLace content.
To enact positive change, anti-racism has to be an active part of our lives. It cannot just be a black square on an Instagram feed. With awareness and privilege comes responsibility and I’m glad to stand in support of Munroe Bergdorf as well as the full black community.
