I'm calling BS on the Univision explanation for Romney's appearance on their show

Please go to http://www.maccosmetics.com/product/shaded/158/251/Studio-Fix-Powder-Plus-Foundation/index.tmpl, the page for the product that was supposedly applied to Mitt with a heavy hand to make him look like an Oompa-Loompa.

The shade NW30 that was apparently applied to our favorite punching bag is at the right end of the third row. It's a lightish, warm tan shade. A very lovely color, good for Mitt in all respects. But you could use the whole container on him at one time and still not turn him Boehner orange.

1. I'm thinking it was Fake Bake

because it looks like a bad application (or three) of self-tanner.

The makeup people at Univision prolly tried to even the mess out with Mac NW30 as best they could.

3. Willard got off the plane in Miami looking like that. Nothing to do with Univision.

Scroll down in this OP to where he's getting off the plane.

If anything, Univision evened it out for him. If the makeup person believes that to be a natural tan, well, .

6. Here's a photo taken on Friday - his tan is GONE, only two days after the Univision interview, below



On the link below is a photo Romney's face from yesterday (Friday) in Las Vegas - he has lost his tan

8. Omg. He didn't even TRY to keep up the lie about it being a natural tan!

Is he that stupid that he thinks a bright orange 'tan' disappears naturally in two days?!

14. My tan takes around two weeks to start to fade.

Then my skin starts to have gentle peel, removing the tanned skin. Romney being snow white after two days is impossible. What happened is that Romney was ready to speak to lilly-white audiences, a tan would have been a problem. So on went a scrub and off went the fake tan.

16. It does when you got it from Maaco

I wonder how long Boehner's bright orange "tan" lasts? Maybe Romney should start going there.

15. I wonder if MAC knows about this site...

The retail price of this product is $27 according to MAC, not $44. I thought things were supposed to be cheaper on the internets.

5. You have a stray 'comma' at the end of the URL in the OP.


If you edit and take the 'comma' out then the link will work.

9. I think he asked the make up artist to make him look more macho.

However the make-up artist misinterpreted and thought he meant "mocha".

13. There is Video of him being Dark that day before he even got to the place

if they did put a lot of makeup maybe it was because he was so dark already with some makeup .

18. How long do your tans/sunburns last?

More than two days, I'm sure. Not Willard's.

Univision was Wednesday. Here's Friday:

http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-pn-romney-tax-returns-20120921,0,7082610.story|

Poof! Did he apply Tan Be Gone?! Or does he have freakish cell regeneration without peeling?

As for why Univision would lie, why would they bus in Willard's supporters and let him dictate his introduction? That makeup person wanted to remain employed.

19. Access

My thinking...Romney's handlers told Univision, take the blame for this or you'll receive no access to the Romney Administration.

Fortunately, there was a convenient peon to dump it all on: the makeup artist. Most people don't know the MAC color codes, including many of their customers (MAC is a department store brand; they put it on you before you buy, so there isn't the need to know those codes), so this is one they thought they could get away with.

The other prob with this lie: MAC doesn't have anything that will turn you Boehner orange.
