What’s happening right now in Australia?

Coles and Woolworths are the first to respond to the #makethespace petition by committing to change for the better. Both are starting the journey by stocking all shades of Maybelline Fit Me Foundation as a trial.

Both Coles and Woolworths are currently expanding their shade ranges through a trial run (live now), with permanent changes dependent on sales and customer feedback.

If the full shade range of Maybelline is available in your area, please consider purchasing a bottle for yourself or a friend. Your shade match can be found here. If you can’t purchase a bottle, please send some feedback to Woolworths and Coles commending them on their initiatives and ask that they be made permanent. Thanks!

What can I do to help?

We need your help to spread the word about the trials to ensure that people know all shades are now available and to let supermarkets know that this trial is a move in the right direction towards inclusion and representation of diversity in society.

Expanding the shade ranges in supermarkets will make a difference to BIPOC, and in particular those who are affected by intersectional discrimination based on gender identity, age, income levels and disabilities.
