Cosmetics Company Disputes Amber Heard's Claims Of Using Their Product To Cover Abuse Bruises

Heard's attorney held up Milani Cosmetics' All-In-One Correcting Kit as what she used to cover up the alleged bruises during her marriage to Johnny Depp.

Everyone is tuned into the courtroom drama of the Johnny Depp - Amber Heard defamation case. Even the makeup brand, Milani has gotten involved. The brand was not left with much of a choice considering how one of Heard's lawyers produced one of their products in court. The lawyer explained how the Aquaman actress had used the brand's concealer to allegedly hide bruises on her face from domestic abuse.

On the second day of the trial, April 12, Elaine Bredehoft held up Milani Cosmetics' All-In-One Correcting Kit up to the jury as the product Heard used at the time of the alleged domestic violence. "This is what Amber carried in her purse for the entire relationship with Johnny Depp," Bredehoft said, as per PEOPLE. "She's an actor — do you honestly think she would have left her apartment ever without makeup? Do you think she would ever have wanted other people to see her bruises and cuts? This is what she used. She became very adept at it."


Bredehoft went on to add, "You're gonna hear the testimony from Amber about how she had to mix the different colors for the different days of the bruises as they developed, and the different colorings and how she would use these to touch those up to be able to cover those. She also used concealer, foundation. ... Amber didn't even leave her bedroom without foundation on." The attorney did not specify any brand or product name.


Milani Cosmetics challenged the notion of this happening by making a TikTok video clarifying the timeline. In the video, the cosmetics company states that the product Heard claimed to be using was launched only in December 2017. Her divorce from Depp was finalized in January 2017 and the alleged abuse took place from 2014 to 2016. There was no way she could have used their product, was the point they were trying to convey. "You asked us… let the record show that our Correcting Kit launched in 2017!" the brand captioned the TikTok video. 


A source close to Heard stated that the lawyers were only using the concealer kit as an example and added, "But it’s a sad day when a makeup company uses that as an opportunity to make light of what victims of domestic violence have to do to hide the results of the abuse they endure." Milani also mentioned in a statement, "Our video was to verify the claim that our eagle-eyed and loyal fanbase made about the product named in the trial. Milani Cosmetics is not taking a formal stance on the trial, evidence, or future outcome of the case."
