AIBU to wonder how this badly-photoshopped advert is still running?

I keep seeing this Perfectil advert all over the place and there's something about it that feels kind of awkward. Obviously there's some kind of photo manipulation going on, but I always feel like the woman is holding a flat, cardboard cutout mask in front her face that she's about to remove. Please tell me I'm not the only person who's noticed this!

I just pepped up a batch of holiday photos and I realised that no matter what the lighting/etc, my BIL always looks like he's wearing a paper cut out mask. Odd.

In this case, it's the hand position and the fact that photos that have been zapped can look unnaturally flat.

Its no more different than every single product out there. Everything is so photoshopped these day, hard to believe whats what anymore.

I know everything's photoshopped, but most adverts don't make me feel like the model is about to remove their own face grin. I know lots of adverts can annoying but there's something about this one in particular that really bugs me.

It does look like she's holding a mask, which is a more than a bit creepy.
