Ratings and Reviews
Actual review of the app quality.
I heard about this on Twitter and wanted to see how it actually worked, since people are only reviewing this based on their political and controversial standpoint of it, I thought I’d critique the app itself. I have a few problems. 1) You only get 5 pictures you can alter, I wasn’t aware of that and didn’t save the ones I did while I was playing around in the app, I have no idea how to get more or if you can. 2) It decreases the actual quality of the photo, it blurs the whole picture a little bit. 3) All the “remove” filter does is take off any apparent color, soften lines, and redden the skin. All of the pictures I have of myself are makeup-less, I choose not to wear make up and that’s fine, I don’t care who does and who doesn’t, but the app made me look like I was on a meth bender (Just to make it clear, I don’t and never have done meth). 4) If you looked at the other filter that put make up on the picture, the quality is just terrible, it looks like someone else’s eyes are cropped onto yours.
In my personal opinion the only people this app is useful to is shallow guys that only want to get laid but don’t very much.
All controversy aside, I genuinely think this is a bad app.
Best app ever
This app may exaggerate slightly the photo of the person without makeup, but it still does a great job at showing what a person looks like without makeup. Indeed, makeup can be used as a form of fraud and catfishing when it comes to dating.
I’m confused by the sentiment that this app is “sexist” considering that the feminist movement asserts that a female’s value should not be determined by her looks. How can you claim that a woman’s beauty is not relevant to her worth yet assert that this app is sexist as it makes women look less attractive without makeup?
Even if it shows women are less attractive without makeup, why does it matter if female value should not be based on beauty? This logic is completely irrational and it’s extremely laughable to see to 180 degree turn many are performing in regards to women and the power they have with beauty. It looks like there is female privilege after all...
It’s just bad.
I figured I’d put this app’s “remove makeup” feature to the test with one no-makeup selfie, one male model, two heavy makeup pictures, and one natural makeup picture. The last four were googled, of course. The no-makeup selfie was a crack head, as expected. The male model didn’t see much change - just general desaturation. The two heavy makeup pictures were poorly filtered. The fake eyelashes, eyeliner, eyeshadow, highlighter, and purple lipstick all survived the purge. The only thing it really did was desaturate the skin and thin out the (still fake) lashes. The natural makeup picture almost looked normal. She still had fake eyelashes, highlighter, and (slightly less) filled in eyebrows, though.
I played around with the makeup adding filters, too, but none of them looked good. The app basically photoshopped a new set of eyes onto them and airbrushed the rest.
Oh, but on the note of this app being sexist - no, it’s not inherently sexist. It is, however, sexist to say that women are liars/catfishing because they wear makeup and to point to this app as a reliable way to “expose” them.
