MAC Cosmetics has been giving a spotlight to a new look appearing on models on the latest fashion runways. It's an experimental makeup trend the company is calling "lollipop lips."

The intentional lipstick smudging on the outside of the lips is supposed to simulate the effect of sucking on a lollipop. And then, rubbing it around your mouth?

Anyway, this is what it looks like as part of an entire look.

Even though it seems, at this point, as though it's merely an edgy look fashion shows are trying their hands at, people are reacting strongly to it. And it's a resounding no.

It's reminding people of either a bad makeup application, or just a really bad rash.

And they've already given it alternative names. Like, a "Kylie Jenner lip challenge gone wrong."
