The bedroom clearly belongs to a young girl. The single bed, toys and colourful books all point to it being a 13-year-old’s room (or somewhere in that age range). And then there’s the model herself who also looks very young.This whole thing is just creepy in a pedophilic kind of way.
Classic examples of objectification in advertising. Women’s body parts are being used to accessorize products and sexify them.
The copy reads:
Real life is unretouched, just like this ad*
*This model has not been retouched. Certified by a notary public.
I’ve always wondered why most cosmetic companies don’t make ads like this. If you’re selling makeup, then show me how well your makeup works. Don’t use Photoshop to make the model’s skin perfect and smooth when the right makeup can do virtually the same thing.
I hope to see more like this in the future!
“Healthy aging expert” HAHAHAH.
Aging healthy has nothing to do with wrinkles, and everything to do with eating well and staying active.
Foundation is now optional?! Thanks so much, Ceramic Skin Smoother! I’m so glad I can now go out in public makeup-free without my hideous “fine lines, wrinkles and skin imperfections” scaring everybody!
PlayStation Vita - It says “Touch both sides. Double the feeling.”
This is a truly creepy image and slogan.
The ad compares a game controller to a freaky doll-like woman with a tiny waist and large breasts on her front and back. So, women are just plastic toys with tits? And using this game controller is somehow comparable to fondling a quadruple-breasted woman? THE MORE TITS THE BETTER!
What. The. Fuck.
Also, this ad is not appealing to anyone but heterosexual male gamers. Recent studies show 42% of gamers are female, so when are we going to see an ad with a freaky doll-like man with two penises? (Double the joysticks!)
Oh that’s right… NEVER.
According to the copy, “Airbrush Legs covers and helps fade freckles, veins and imperfections.” My scars and veins are not imperfections, they are part of me! I will not cover them, and I will not worry about what other people think of them.
Although I advocate for positive body image and self confidence, I am not immune to feeling insecure about my body. I have had varicose veins since my early 20’s and am self conscious about them. I work really hard to accept them, and I refuse to stop wearing shorts or skirts because of them. I will not cover up my legs with spray-on pantyhose!
