A MACOSgino, the Italian makeup artist who has been hailed as the “Queen of MACOS makeup,” is being criticized for what she says is a lack of attention paid to the makeup and hair products she’s created.
According to a new article by the Daily Mail, the beauty brand has yet to publish a new product, and has only released a single lip-color, for example.
“I never thought it would be this long, but now, after the controversy, I am worried,” MACOSgomino told the Mail, referring to the scandal involving her husband, Francesco Lazzari, who is accused of being a part of a bribery scheme that allegedly netted more than $1 million.
MACOSgother said the scandal is a “tragedy,” but also pointed out that the beauty giant has done some things in recent years that have made the brand better.
“It’s not only about the products, but also about how we are as individuals, we are the family, and this is a big responsibility,” MACOsgomino said.
“What I think is so important is that this is not just about MACOS, but about the whole of the beauty world.”
MACOSgmino’s husband was charged with bribing politicians, but she says the investigation is part of an organized campaign against her husband and her husband’s political allies.
MACOsgino is the only woman in the world to have won the top prize at the 2016 International Association of Cosmetics Designers Awards, and won three beauty awards in 2017 alone, including the prestigious Vogue Women of the Year Award.
The Daily Mail reports that MACOS is “under pressure to come clean about the bribery scandal,” and has said that the scandal has damaged MACOS’ brand image and will make it difficult for it to continue.
“MACOSgmini, a beauty brand, has done a lot for the last 30 years and we are just now seeing the consequences of that,” MACSgini told the Daily Post.
“This is not about the product, it’s about the family.”
MACSgmini said that it is “tough to be the mother of a company that does not deserve the respect that it deserves,” adding that her husband is a successful entrepreneur who is “a brilliant man.”
She also noted that the company has a long history of providing quality products.
“We are not perfect, but we have always been honest with the consumers, and have always made products that are perfect,” MACosgmini told The Daily Post, saying that her family will continue to do its job of providing products to make the world better.
