CAMP Vamps it Up

We’re tired of seeing actresses fronting cosmetics lines. How stupid do beauty companies think we are? Does L’Oreal expect us to believe that Diane Keaton wears its Age Perfect Skin Supporting & Hydrating Makeup off-camera? What’s worse is that some of these lovelies aren’t even wearing the makeup they’re hawking when they’re on-camera. L’Oreal recently landed in hot water when it was discovered that Penelope Cruz, who appeared in an ad for its Telescopic Mascara, was actually wearing fake eyelashes. L’Oreal called it standard industry practice. We call it outrageous.

So it was a breath of fresh air when cult cosmetics company CAMP recently signed New York celebrity transsexual Amanda Lepore to promote a cosmetics line created exclusively for her. (This company doesn’t call itself CAMP for nothing.) A cult hero to people from all walks of life, Lepore is known for working with fashion houses Dior, GUESS, and Heatherette, in addition to acting as a creative muse for famed photographers David LaChapelle and Justin Monroe, and singer-songwriter Boy George. She was also recently seen starring in a Girl In a Coma’s music video for “Road To Home.”

Lepore is the first transsexual to have her own cosmetics collection, which we welcome with open arms. It injects some much-needed fun and humor into makeup, while sending the message that women of all variations and persuasions can be beautiful. Think of it as Dove’s “Real Women” campaign with a tranny twist. We have it on good authority that Lepore adores her namesake line and only wears CAMP products.

“To us here at CAMP, it is not about gender,” company founder Michael Perich explains. “It’s about being true to yourself and having fun in the process… I’m breaking conventional rules and that’s why the world is taking notice of CAMP… We get orders from all over the globe on a daily basis from word of mouth.”

  1. I love her red, and what she wears on her cheeks. And I’ve said for years about mascara commercials “come on, fake lashes!” in ads, on tv, it’s so ridiculously obvious. I think it is standard practice, and one that needs to stop.

  2. Miss Ronnie Chitown diva

    If anyone could be a spokeperson for make up it should be a show girl. And an icon of fashion and glamour, one couldnt ask for a better spokes person than Amanda Lepore….

    Bravo Camp!!!!!

  3. I seem to recall her smearing herself head to toe in pink MAC lipstick in a Heatherette viral video…

    I don’t really aspire to look like Amanda, so I can’t see myself buying CAMP.

  4. LOLOL!! I hear you. The red lipstick is a bit much BUT Gwen Stefani might be a fan…

  5. Am I the only one old enough to remember RuPaul’s MAC ads?
