Well, can't say I'm surprised.

International Women's Day was huge this year. No doubt your feed was full to the brim with amazing messages to and from brilliant women.

Of course, International Women's Day did have some curiosities. For example, can anyone explain Snapchat's "special" Women's Day filter?

Madame Curie's life wasn't about having a smooth complexion or a smokey eye. Madame Curie was a two-time Nobel Prize-winning scientist and the first woman to actually win that honour. 

She was known best for her pioneering work in the field of radioactivity and, notably, did not wear falsies to the lab. 

While we're huge makeup fans, this filter gets filed into the ever-growing collection of Snapchat "special" filter fails.

Someone even pointed out that the scientific structures shown in the filter have nothing to do with Madame Curie's specialty.

Okay, well you tried it, Snapchat.
