It’s been a few months since Valentina sashayed away after Maskgate 2017, but the wound is still fresh enough for Lush. The cosmetics company employed some master class shade to immortalize the Chicano queen’s shocking lip sync elimination, also known as The Most Iconic Moment from This Season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. We’re well-acquainted with her viral “I’d like to keep it on, please” line and we’ve gotten past the point of being upset that she didn’t know the words to Ariana Grande’s "Greedy."
Now, though, the phrase is taking on a new meaning with Lush’s most popular items—the "Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask.” In the description for the product, a brave soul wrote “I’d like to keep it on please” about the face mask, and people are loving it. The original tweet revealing the company's shady reference has over 15,000 likes and nearly 6,000 retweets.

Despite the alleged diva behavior she’s engaged in after the show and the halfhearted response on the reunion show to her fans cyberbullying other queens, Valentina has shown her strength as a fan favorite and breakout star of Drag Race. We can only hope that, with the Catastrophe cosmetic face mask, she’ll apply it thick enough to not crack under the pressure of her next big lip sync challenge.
