Grace admired the gorgeous red lip, but admitted that she wasn’t sure if she could pull it off. “I want to try this out soo bad,” she wrote in the comment section. “I’ve been told red doesn’t suit me…My lips are too big.”

The brand assured her that “this red is for everyone” and then reposted a screenshot of the convo, adding the caption “The #FENTYBEAUTY sisterhood is real!! We ❤️ ya’ll.” The heartwarming post has 97,290 likes and counting.

Grace told BuzzFeed that she’s extra self-conscious because she’s been bullied about her gap teeth and full lips since kindergarten. “I think maybe that’s one reason why my comment got so much attention, because a lot of girls can relate to it,” she said. “I’ve been getting messages from girls telling me they went through the same thing.”

Grace has tried lip color in the past, including some purple, pink, and red mattes from Colourpop. “I loved them to be honest,” she said. “But I ended up giving away the hot red and hot pink because I was told too many times that it didn’t look good.” After that, she stopped wearing color lipstick and deleted all of the pictures of her wearing it from her Instagram page.

Having big, full lips has become a hot new “trend” in white mainstream culture, but that hasn't really encouraged Grace to embrace her own lips. “The whole Kylie Jenner lip look blew up and I felt that hers looked much better than mine,” she admitted. “I feel as though my lips look bloated with lipstick.”

Well now that Grace’s got the #FentyBeauty sisterhood riding for her and her gorgeous natural full lips, is she finally ready to give red another go? “I’m thinking I’m gonna try it and then just show them!” she said.

And ICYWW, Fenty Beauty has spoken to Grace about sending her a Stunna lip paint, so it looks like this thing is gonna happen! Until then, we’ll make do with this bomb ass pic that proves once and for all that red lipstick was actually, factually invented for black girls with full lips.

Here's a pic of Grace wearing Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Fire. She's only worn this shade once before deciding to retire it. But then she took a brave leap and brought it back out just for this post 🙂
