Yea, some interviewers ask some weird/silly questions, however, I think the question is ideal for the post you applied for.
And I wouldn't think it has anything to do with the colour of your lips. Besides, you already affirmed/confident that you'll get the position, so why worry?

All the best!

Re: What My Black Lips Caused Me During An Interview Today by BumbleDevil: 6:49am On Dec 08, 2020
I found myself in such situation in 2009 when I applied for a marketing job with an insurance company. The lady (interviewer) started with
Lady: Do you smoke
Bumble: No I don't
Lady: Why are you lips dark
Bumble: It is natural. I grew up with it.
Lady: Have you smoked weed before
Bumble: I have never smoked all my life
Lady: Why are your eyes having strains of red
Bumble: I don't know

She then went on and on to give tips on healthy living, dietary advice etc and asked me to report back to her after two weeks of following her dietary advice.

Though I never went back. Interviewers should stop profiling people with natural dark lips as smokers.

That's exactly how Nigerian men profile ladies based on their dressing too but would cry a river when SARS and HR officers start profiling them based on thier appearance.
Question please
When a lady dresses and exposes a lot of flesh eg cleavage, tighs, half boobs and part of her butt, she doesn't do it to entice and attract men?

In Nigeria, maybe. In Canada, it's against the law to ask age, sexuality and some few other personal details.

Some interviewers can ask uneccessary questions.

Some of the questions you termed unnecessary are very necessary. You are free to lie about them, but know it that sooner or later, the truth will be known by the interviewer or the employer.
You will not understand until u become an employer or an interviewer.

During my time I work for people, I was by an interviewer.
Him: Which State are you from?
Me: I;m from X State.
Him: I heard that the governor of ur state is just looting u guys fund and making thing somehow hard for you people in the state. He even stole money meant for road construction.
Me: (very quick smile): Sir, I have heard something like that, but to me, I still regard it as rumour since I am not in government and cannot verify the rumour. So I don't talk about it because I can't defend it. So I don't know much about that sir.

You may think that this question is unnecessary. Due to the nature of job I was to be offered which need lots of confidentiality, they were testing me on my level of gossip. I beliv my answer made them beliv I don't give ear nor talk about unfounded rumours. Finally, I got the job.

Actually, what the interviewer said was true about the then governor. If I had started rattling to them how the man was bad and wicked. How he was looting, they will keep asking me more questions that will make me talk more and at the end, they will see me unworthy of taking up a position where confidentiality is the keyword.

Most Nigerian HR officers are just highly unprofessional and stvpid... Instead of concentrating on what the applicant most likely has to offer based on his CV and how he answers the interview questions thrown at him, they will focus on looks and be asking irrelevant questions... So when a person has dark lips, automatically he's a smoker? In saner climes, job applicants go to interviews with dreadlocks, tattoos etc and the interviewers are not usually bothered about all that but instead, focus on the likely personality the person has.

Guy, don't deceive yourself. The interviewer asked appropriate questions here and if you think such questions are not necessary, then better start planning not to work for anybody. Start building your own biz.

Meanwhile, you talk about "Saner Clime". Which of the "sane climes" have u bn to and worked in?
Let me tell you. Every job has it's no go areas when it comes to interview. Even if you are over qualified and u appear in a certain way that goes against the ethics or requirements of that particular job, my brother, they will throw u away. Even at that your "Saner Climes", they take it more serious than down here.

Even in a common party that requires you to come dressing officially, if u come on a casual dress, u may not be allowed in.
So when u talk about the sane clime, be sure u are saying what u know,
Re: What My Black Lips Caused Me During An Interview Today by Godsonkemz(m): 8:12am On Dec 08, 2020
I'm sure the reason you were asked those questions is because of the position you applied when you could have applied for a better position for graduates.
Re: What My Black Lips Caused Me During An Interview Today by NwaforIgbo: 8:55am On Dec 08, 2020
Guy... When I saw this post I became confuse as to when I created a post on Nairaland because I know I have not created a post for along time now...

This same scenario happened to me just last week friday..... I went for an interview and before I could even sit down to answer question,
the interviewer asked...

"Do you smoke"

I was shocked... I said NO...

As if that was not enough, he went further to say that "it seems to me that you do smoke"..

Local man just week..... This my black lips don give me too many wrong impression.. Everybody mistake me for a smoker...

The other day I was just walking on my own ohhhh... Somebody just called me and started telling me that "if u rub this pink lips cream nobody go know say you dey smoke"" I was like Wetin be all this pone self I have been asked this awkward question since 1980.......

Infact I have decided that I will use pink lips to remedy this problem.. For impression sake.

While it's truly a possibility, that's not always the case, sir. Contrary to what an average man thinks, women don't generally live their lives to impress men. Fashion is a very personal thing. Just like a guy who has tattoos, dreads, ear piercings, etc., people generally dress in a way that makes them feel good about themselves. Men like to woo and attract girls but it would illogical to say we buy expensive shoes solely for that purpose. Dressing (appearance generally) boosts one's personal confidence. While there are many things that could boost one's confidence, most of them are not easily within our control but dressing is. And that is why both men and women would dress whichever way makes them feel confident even when it appears unacceptable to others. A girl who dresses shabbily is still likely to dress that way even after marriage or in all female gatherings cause that's her sense of fashion and possibly source of confidence.

My brother. I just want to say if this is how you respond to interview questions, you wont be able to get a good job.

Whenever you respond to a question, don't just say yes or no.

Say yes, explain your reasons for saying yes, give some examples of why you choose your reason, and then some lessons learnt in the past. It helps tune the conversation to your advantage, and boost the believability of your responses.

Just a tip.
I gat you
but she didn't asked for a conjunction
in the given situation she only requested for a mere response either"yes or "no"
