Do you know what you want?

"I do. What I really want is my foundation to match my skin."

For some reason this ad drives me bonkers. This is what we, as women, should "really want" out of life? For our foundation to match?!

Maybe I'm being petty, but I can't help it. I pay attention to advertising. It has always interested me. This ad makes me want to boycott Revlon. Not that I'm a big Revlon supporter in the first place.

Does anyone else think this is a disgusting advertisement or am I just crazy?

Disgusting? meh
Stupid? Oh, yah!

Why in the year 2008 do we even need to see some "celebrity" who has access to hundreds of thousands of dollars of make up and make up artist hawking this stuff? We eknow we aren't going to end up looking like that, right? But do we really want to?

Besides, think about it, she is walking around with swollen ankles now!

Thousands of years of evolution, and matching foundation is the best we can do. Feh!
