Why does this scare me, you ask?
I can’t tell if that’s a really gross-and-oily woman who just so happens to be super flat, or if it’s a really gross-and-oily man who just so happens to have massive pecs.
It would be helpful if those arms were coming from that body, but… I don’t think they are.
Really, we do. But Nordstrom? That is no excuse for this… this thing:
Even more amusing is the fact that it comes in five colours.
I usually love you, Givenchy. Truly. You almost never disappoint when it comes to promo images, and everything about you is just so luxe and gorgeous. I’ve been ridiculously in love with the images for your last few collections — remember last fall/winter’s Les Poétiques? I still look at that image from time to time.
However, I do have a problem with this:
YOU ARE A HUMAN NOT A SEAMONSTER SO PLEASE STOP TRYING TO BE ONE.
(In case it was lost in the talk-to-text translation, that was heavy enough on the sarcasm to kill a small kitten.)
This is all sorts of…
- flat-out stupid,
- and did we mention: offensive?
Got anything to add to the list? Hit us up in the comments!
via the Caudalie sale on Glit.com. (Warning: this sale was a couple weeks ago; I set this post to go up and it… didn’t. Way to get the year right on the scheduled date, Rae. Anyhow, it’s going up now instead!)
For starters, this woman looks like she’s enjoying her “massage” a little too much:
(Seriously. If you disagree, just stare at the photo for a couple seconds longer and I’m sure you’ll suddenly find yourself (a) feeling awkward, and (b) in support of this argument.)
And, to top that off, there is the following image, to which my first reaction was AHH BUGS GET THEM OFF GET THEM OFF GET THEM OFFFFFFF!!!!
(Unfortunately, this is not the first time Glit has posted photos that have fit into our “things that scare me” category. Proof!)
As usual, sets and mens items are excluded!
Clive Christian‘s $700 perfume, 1872 Pure, takes our fifth place. Unlike all the other items on this list, Clive perfumes are not in the “collectibles” section… nope, these are just his run of the mill fragrances. Which is a little sickening.
Clive takes the fourth place as well, with his $865 No.1. I just have to say it — this bottle is way uglier than 1872 Pure’s.
This Jean Patou Joy perfume is definitely intimidating at $900, but compared to our first and second place items, almost seems like a bargain. Emphasis on almost.
For $7000 you could buy a lot of things, or this ninety-year-old Guerlain Mistouko Prestigious perfume. (Well, the perfume formula is ninety, but your bottle sure as hell won’t be.) What is it with Guerlain and disgustingly expensive prices?? Keep in mind, though, that they’re only making fourteen of these. Because really, they’ll probably only sell ten.
Brace yourself, kids… because Guerlain‘s Mon Precious Nectar Fountain Imperiale rings in at a cool $9000. Yes, you read that correctly. You could put yourself through school for a few years, or wear some perfume. Just sayin’.
