(Brendan Smialowski/Pool/AFP)Heard received criticism after her attorneys showed off a Milani brand color correcting palette and claimed the actress had used the palette to cover up her bruises.”This was what she used,” attorney J. Ben Rottenborn said in his opening statement. “She became very adept at it. You’re going to hear the testimony from Amber about how she had to mix the different colors for the different days of the bruises as they developed in the different coloring and how she would use these to touch those up to be able to cover those.”However, social media users realized the specific Milani color correcting palette didn’t exist in 2016. The brand even weighed in and explained the specific product launched in 2017.”Milani Cosmetics can confirm that the palette in question – the Milani Cosmetics Conceal + Perfect All-in-One Correcting Kit – did not launch until December 2017,” a spokesperson for Milani Cosmetics said 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.” The company claimed that it is “not taking a formal stance on the trial, evidence or future outcome of the case.”Meanwhile, a source with knowledge of the situation told Fox News Digital that “similar kits certainly did exist at the time of the abuse.”CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APPHeard gets emotional
