Truth and Beauty


It is a relief to me to know that even as I age out of the youth and untapped potential of my 20's, into the older age and failed promise of my 30's, that I am not alone. Indeed, companies in every conceivable industry are thinking of me: there is the Depends brand, looking after my imminent incontinence; there are dozens of pain relievers made to relieve my aching joints; and, of course, there are all the cosmetics--age-defying and wrinkle-fighting marvels of deception.

I was especially heartened to learn this morning that there is even a new spokesmodel for my middle age, an all-American picture of healthy ageing. Christie Brinkley, the famous American icon of Cover Girl cosmetics from the 70's and 80's has been asked back to be Cover Girl model again. This time she's pitching a line called Advanced Radiance, which according to Cover Girl, is makeup intended for women 30 and older.

I am thrilled. I am thrilled that as soon as I turned 30--several years ago now--I immediately graduated from youth, vibrance and normal cosmetics, into a more "advanced" group of women who need a little special something. It is just what I myself have always believed, that I need--I deserve--a little special something. I am also thrilled that the face of this demographic of "advanced" beauty is a 51-year-old woman whose career peaked in in the early 80's National Lampoon movies. I do, I really do identify with the woman who first made black eyeliner look fabulous...in 1976. Yeah Christie!

Separately, definitely continue checking out the wave of GCC writer blogs. Today's bloggers are Johanna Edwards, E.

Well done on a nice blog Renée. I was searching for information on cover girl makeup and ran across your post Truth and Beauty - not exactly what I was looking for related to cover girl makeup but a very interesting read all the same!
