Question of the Week – Do you think cosmetic ads should have a disclaimer if they use excessive photoshop, false lashes and such?

Answer – I’d like to see the use of false lashes in mascara ads banned completely.  I mean, what is the actual point?

    I don’t think anyone is actually fooled by the touching up of photos are they? Seeing something that has so obviously been tinkered with actually completely turns me off a product. If a company can’t be honest about how, for example, a foundation will look on your skin then is it really that good? I completely ignore advertising and look for online reviews which aren’t connected with the company concerned or aren’t on a shopping site. It would be really nice to see some honest advertising for a change, but I’m not holding my breath.

    I never gt taken in by advertising now. My first port of call before trying anything new that I am unsure of I go straight to blogs, looking for a review of something and googling for an online review is how I found you 😀
