Kanye West surprised us last week when he dedicated a string of tweets to a topic near and dear to us — lipstick! He wrote 11 tweets over a three-hour-and-seven-minute time period, all of which expressed his absolute disgust for women who wear dark lipstick. Shocking!!! Who knew Kanye West had such serious opinions on women’s beauty routines? Though, it’s especially surprising considering how much Kanye West regards himself as a noble fashion-forward man, and dark, berry-tone lips are one of the biggest trends for fall. Here’s what he had to say:

“Please don’t let girls start wearing dark lipstick again. I just think girls need to know that guys don’t really like black lipstick.”

+ September 24, 11:19pm
“I think classic red is the sexiest or no make up at all … nothing too experimental.”

+ September 24, 11:26pm
“Keep the crazy colors on the toes.”

+ September 24, 11:28pm
“Do girls even base any of they lip choices on what we like?”

+ September 24, 11:32pm
“She say… well my hairdresser like it… well tell me what your lipdresser says.”

+ September 24, 11:39pm
“I looked at the time and just thought… oh sh**… it’s girls at the club right now with dark lipstick reading this… uuuuuuuuh my bad.”

+ September 24, 11:46pm
“I think girls be trying to impress other girls with all them weird ass lip colors lol.”

+ September 24, 11:49pm
“In the studio with Jay and B. Beyonce just explained to me that lip dressers are better known as makeup artist lol.”

+ September 25, 12:08am
“Lipstick…trending topic!”

+ September 25, 12:17am
“Lipstick’s a trending topic… this might be the lowest moment of my tweeting career hahahahahahhaaaaaa.”

+ September 25, 2:22am
“The Dream just walked in and said …a girl gotta have a certain outfit to go with dark lipstick… some patent leather or something.”

We actually like dark lipstick! So do celeb hotties Ashley Olsen and Taylor Momsen. We may not be able to change Mr. West’s mind, but what do you think?

+ Is dark lipstick gorgeous or goth?
