I had been looking for the perfect pink for Spring and lucked out with Exude Pink #2. Its a soft petal pink but has enough punch to not wash me out. I love the minty scent and the creamy texture feels amazing on my lips.

The 25-year-old Megan Fox is Jalouse Magazine’s April Cover Girl. She looks amazing, I love the mix of her bad girl image and the classic wardrobe.
Megan is making press rounds to promote the opening of her new film Friends With Kids, she spoke a little with Jalouse about her role in the movie, and the role she plays in real life on photo shoots.
Check out some excerpts from the interview with Jalouse below:
On her role in ‘Friends with Kids': “I’m Mary Jane, the character played by Adam Scott thinks he is her soul mate. But he has a baby, I’m very independent, and he disapproves of her lifestyle.”
On shooting magazine covers and ads: “I hate taking pictures, I never watch them, otherwise I would have wanted to change everything. I prefer not to see any and trust the photographer, who knows his job.”
On being labeled based on her looks: “I live well with my image, I cannot complain, I would not trade my place with an unattractive girl.”
Be sure to check out the whole article and the rest of the photo shoot over at Jalouse.
Above left is Demi Moore, modeling for Helena Rubenstein’s 2012 campaign and to the right is a recent candid of Demi Moore. While I agree we all have our bad days and look better when we have had time to make ourselves up. This photo shows how far beauty advertising has gone from the truth. I am not against a touch up here or there to clean up a picture but when the pictures are so glaringly different that falls into false advertising.
In comparison Intelligent Life did something shocking had their cover model Cate Blanchett appear Photoshop free!
March/ April issue of Intelligent Life Photo: INTELLIGENT LIFE
While Cate’s un-retouched photo shows her wrinkles it also shows a real live beautiful older woman.
The magazine’s editor, Tim de Lisle, explained the reasoning behind the un-retouched image in his editor’s letter: “When other magazines photograph actresses, they routinely end up running heavily Photoshopped images, with every last wrinkle expunged. Their skin is rendered so improbably smooth that, with the biggest stars, you wonder why the photographer didn’t just do a shoot with their waxwork.”
What do you think? Do you like the perfected Photoshop look on models? Or should we have a limit to how much retouching can be done on product adverts?
