Who knew a beauty brand could get involved in the high-profile trial between actors Amber Heard and Johnny Depp?
Four days ago, makeup brand Milani Cosmetics has come forward with a viral TikTok video disputing a claim made by Heard’s lawyer in the courtroom.
The Milani Conceal + Perfect All-in-One Correcting Kit was presented in court by Heard’s lawyer, who claimed that she used the product to conceal bruises she had when she was married to Johnny Depp.
“This was what she used. She became very adept at it. You’re going to hear the testimony from Amber about how she had to mix the different colours for the different days of the bruises as they developed in the different colouring and how she would use to touch those up to be able to cover those.”
Milani Cosmetics had disputed this claim in is TikTok video, saying that the was released in 2017, which was one year after Heard’s divorce from Depp in 2016.
This video has since received 4.9 million views (accurate at the time of writing).
