What Do You Dislike About Beauty Advertisements?

What's Your Beauty Ad Pet Peeve?

On the latest episode of Mad Men, there was a lot of talk about marketing beauty, and of course the guys at the agency had some very retro ideas of what women want. (Hint: we're all marriage-crazed hysterics.) While we're glad the days of that kind of overt advertising are mostly over, there are still things about the way beauty products are sold that can rub you the wrong way. I, for example, find ads that use tons of lens flare and unnecessary sunlight laughable — their tagline should be "Buy this shampoo . . . and control the weather." Do you have a beauty ad pet peeve? And what do you think bothers you so much about it?
