Okay, I watch a lot of ShopNBC. Don't ask me why as I am unsure how I fell into this habit as well. These shopping networks are geared towards women except for the men's wristwatch shows which I love.
Are all women's beauty products a gimmick? They feature tons of them on ShopNBC. Today was Elizabeth Grant skincare. She has this secret ingredient called "tirrucellum" that comes from the ocean around Britain and is supposed to make the years fade away. (GIMMICK!) She also has lots of products with real gold in them to make you radiant. (GIMMICK!) Yesterday, they had on this Hollywood beauty guru and he was selling this stuff called "Dust." It comes out of the can as a dust and turns into a cream/conditioner when you rub it in your hair. (GIMMICK!) And the prices are exorbitant!!! My favorite part is the before and after photos. In the before photos, the women look dour and sad. In the after photos, they are smiling brilliantly and look radiant. Can you say photoshop?
Well, that is enough of my little beauty product rant. Women, what do you think?
