Since When Did Advertising Become Magical?!

Posted on: December 16, 2009

Did you hear about the new magical make-up?! It takes away wrinkles, pores, neck lines, and any blemishes you may have.  And if you don’t believe it, just look at the model of Lancome Paris Oscillation Power Foundation. A picture can say a thousand words…right?

Make-up at its best can help you have a smoother and more polished look. However, it doesn’t vanish wrinkles, pores, neck lines, or magically make your face inhumane. If you’re looking to get rid of wrinkles (try Botox), hairlessness (try laser hair removal), blemishes (try creams), and pores (try Photoshop).

The fact is these ads for make-up, hair, lip stick, fashion, and etc… are promoting their product which is one thing, but when the product they are promoting shows pictures of models with a blatantly unattainable look no matter how much stuff you slab on your face, hair, or body, it’s a bit ridiculous.  In this article I’m simply choosing to mock Lancome Paris; however, there are many other brands and magazines out their that are doing exactly the same thing.

You may not think it affects you by any means, but we are turning into a society where trying to be more healthy and beautiful hasn’t just become a desire but an obsession.  Honestly, how can you blame people when they are striving for a look they simply will never achieve?!  So next time you see a magazine promoting an ad with perfection as its underlying tagline, look for something else . You’ll be doing yourself a favor.
