if you can't tell, she's non-asian. I don't know if I would call that a xenophobic comment, but I do find it distasteful. How do you feel about non-asians and the general perception that all asians strive to look white? Do you agree/disagree?
Personally, I disagree. Mascara exists, it's not a "white-people" thing; and I don't wear it because I "hate my eyes". It's not like makeup didn't exist in asia before cultures mixed--makeup existed in the east long before it appeared in europe.
