Do you girls notice that the color PINK was very popular for cosmetics and beauty ads? My favorite ads are the last two...and the reason? POLKA DOTS of course!


  1. I love the last one - polka dot's place is not on your face! That just cracks me up. I'd probably have bought the product though... (n_n)

  2. Nice to meet you, this is my first visit, but not last. I like your style;Blanca.

  3. These are fantastic. They should bring back this kind of advertising.

  4. Oh wow, I love these ads. They're so gorgeous.
