Is Rihanna’s Eye Ad Reinstated at Cover Girl?June 24, 2009
Less than two days after Judge Schnegg confirmed Chris Brown’s plea deal in the controversial felony assault case involving Rihanna, sources say CoverGirl is reinstating an ad it pulled this Spring. News of Rihanna being reinstated at CoverGirl follows the pulling of a mascara tinged ad deemed to be in “poor taste” once a battered and bruised photograph of Rihanna was unleashed by TMZ. According to TMZ, Rihanna’s CoverGirl ads are running with the words “turn up the light in your eyes”. As previously reported on Singersroom, Rihanna was part of CoverGirl’s late 2008 push for its ‘Exact Eyelights Mascara’. Originally reported to be spread across a bevy of magazines and television spots, CoverGirl had touted ‘Exact Eyelights Mascara’ as “mascara with light-reflecting metallics and a hint of tint that makes your unique eye color 4x brighter vs. bare lashes”.
