Okay, while I do think that makeup can make a person feel better about oneself – and I’m not denigrating the use of it at all – there is something about this commercial that just sets me on edge. Is it the idea that the implication is that the only reason this woman feel pretty is this particular red lipstick? Is it that the woman playing Karina is, in fact, actually quite conventionally attractive?
I don’t know, it just pings that old grarr feeling in me for some reason. What do you think, if anything at all?
