Erika Lipps: the Devon Aoki wannabe snowflake famous for the freckle faced, doe eyed look and embracing her plus size on her instagram. However, that was not always the case.
Erika Lipps started out as just another fashion blogger on the interwebs with the user handle "iamappleorchards" on blogspot and chictopia
She tried very hard to be a style icon, along with her friend Blake Jacobsen, who took most of her pictures then
However, the internet fame that came with being a chictopia style icon did not pick up and she started posting sporadically on her blog, posting more on her instagram instead. She started gaining attention after she started copying Devon Aoki's looks and gained even more attention after modelling for tunnelvision. Her makeup looks were always very... questionable at best (and very obviously edited)
In case it's not obvious (for some reason)
She wears faux freckles, thickens her brows, does extreme overlining, highlighting and contouring, wears false lashes, extends her cat eyeliner to elongate her eyes... Which wouldn't be so much of a problem if she never tried to pass them off as natural.
She also deletes comments that calls her out on her makeup and editing on every photo and even blocks people for it, then calls them freaks, crazies or meanies to gain sympathy points
she tried to pass off photos like these as natural while promoting a dr jart skincare line
(Originally captioned as "there ya go ya freaks...me w/out makeup...debunked it for ya!!!! Ur welcome!!!!!!" but edited after people called her out because of her brow makeup and freckles)
She acknowledges that she is not natural on instagram but refuses to actually mention which part is natural and how much is edited and will block people and delete comments that even speculate or acknowledge the editing and unnatural parts of her
There was even an article written of her being brave for "showing her bare face" despite never actually showing her bare face and Erika failed to correct the writer that her pics are, in fact, not bare faced.
This photo is probably the most accurate bare faced photo Erika has ever posted even though its covered in a face mask
Despite constantly appearing to preach body positivity, self love and self acceptance, Erika edits her plus size body to fit the "society's beauty standard" that she constantly complains about, then attempts to pass it off as her natural self, similar to Tess Munster/Holiday's ironic #effyourbeautystandards
edits muffin top while preaching about skinny girls (and trying to speak for east asians like some rachel dolezal shit and subtly trying to pass off as one) and seriously how is that pic the same as these
Erika also edits her jaw, skin, nose, lips and also edits her eyes slanted to appear more East Asian
However, if you take away all the makeup and editing, Erika is in fact very white passing because she is half White and half Filipina with unblended bronzer, overlined lips, the wrong foundation color and eyes photoshopped to be slanted
Despite her literally being half white, Erika bashes and shit talks white people CONSTANTLY and despite being half Filipina, she has yet to make a post acknowledging this fact (even repeating that her ethnicity is no one business), even though she makes a lot of posts bringing up and defending East Asians and then attempts to pass off as East Asian. (not all posts blaming everything on white women were screencapped but if you follow her on IG you will be bombarded by at least 2 whiny complains about white people in a day)
also apparently recently she enjoys wearing cheap clothing then calls herself a white women which is annoying because 1) she's basically calling white people cheap imagine wearing an unkempt black wig and putting on some cheap cloth around herself and calling herself japanese 2) she's white but talks about white people as if she's not white to subtly make her followers think she's not white
^ apparently man buns are samurai buns ?? because apparently only samurais wear buns for their hair?? she gets offended at everything white people do like its her hobby
The only time she has even acknowledged South East Asians was when she used a photo of Pia Wurtzbach, which ironically is a very white passing half white half Filipino model.
^ Pia Wurtzbach without her fake tan (which is problematic in its own way)
Recently she was confronted by IG user bravegingerkitty and Erika posted her DM on her insta story to get her followers to whiteknight her
Unfortunately this led to more people calling out her actions and attitude and she has since deactivated her instagram
As expected, Erika came back with a lengthy sob story accusing her followers of making assumptions on her by not reading her captions.
However, Erika does in fact constantly post self love and body positivity captions all the time AND you she does let her followers assume she is East Asian by not denying it and implying it through her choice of words.
As a conclusion, ERIKA LIPPS is a self hating, racist that hates her own race, ethnic features and body while attempting to preach body positivity, self love, self acceptance and racial tolerance. She is the antithesis of everything she preaches and after being called out, she cops out and blames everything on her followers.
She tries so hard to be East Asian and thinks she is in the position to speak for East Asians by talking shit about her own race. She is the East Asian wannabe version of Rachel Dolezal and Jaida Payne. Congratulations Erika Lipps, you are now the style icon you've always wanted to be.
