"Maybe she's born with it. Maybe it's Mattel."

Barbie has had image problems for quite a while; from criticisms that the toy creates an unrealistic ideal body shape for women to accusations that the popular doll encourages girls to be "dumb", the 54-year-old has weathered many a beating.

And now, once again, she is being critiqued for her looks.

A Reddit user posted two side-by-side photos of a Barbie doll with and without makeup, prompting readers to attack the "no makeup" photo as being less than perfect.

"[I]n the second picture her hair is messed up she has bags under her eyes and smile lines," wrote one commenter. Another wrote, "She looks like she's had a hard life, without the makeup."

The photo that has come under harsh critique features the blond doll without her makeup-covered doppelganger's pink lipstick, blue eyeshadow, pencil-filled brows, mascara, eyeliner and blush (and mysteriously, the earrings are gone too).

This isn't the first time we've seen Barbie with a bare face; last spring, a photo of a tired-looking doll sans makeup (complete with braces and bags under the eyes) went viral.

What do you think of Barbie without makeup?
