So… it looks like WOMAN is the 1st one in @Xtina’s line that doesn’t have a red sprayer #RIPredlips PS: tried my best w/Inspire notes pic
I have to admit that I generally like this photoshoot. It’s a good promo and way better and definitely more professional than her two previous ones, though photographer is the same.
But there are four things that cracked me, Mr. Mark Lindell:
- too much airbrush. People do have armpits :P And Xtina still has her piercing holes on her face.Among these pics I like those where you can see black spots (that people with oily skin have) on her forehead, tiny amount of upper lip hair and freckles on her arms - that looks really natural;
- false lashes that started falling of. It’s not a red carpet appearance. Why couldn’t a make-up artist fix it?
- speaking of lashes: on some pics they are edited… and it looks like Mark used Microsoft Paint :)))) It’s unseen until you zoom in several HQ pics;
- some of the best pics are not focused :(
But it IS her best photoshoot imo from Secret Potion promo days + few pics from her recent ELLE shoot
She was so inspiring. Back during her Stripped era I even wrote a poem about her. It’s sad that she obviously feels like she achieve all goals she set: release her first album before graduating HS, rebel against candy-pop image, go retro, become a mom… and “have big boobs like her mom” (fake though) - and lost interest in making music that touches souls, promoting it or even taking vocal coaching to get rid of that terrible moaning she gained during past few yrs after Bionic, that makes her belting sound like constipation seasoned with heavy growling. To let such platinum incrusted with diamonds pipes go to waste is so stupid. I hope for the next album she prepares something good, powerful and sounding like Christina Aguilera with all that promo. Even if it’s her last album. Farewell should be better than Lotus or a collaboration.
