The Makeup Brand That Exposed Amber Heard’s Blatant Lie

Share this article:


Los Angeles-based cosmetics brand, Milani Cosmetics posted a short TikTok video on Friday, 27th of May, 2022, exposing Amber Heard’s perjury.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard began dating in 2012, and got married in 2015. Unfortunately, the ex-couple had to face a divorce in 2016, with Amber alleging he (Johnny Depp) had physically abused her, usually under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Amber Heard has seemingly been caught in a perjury after her lawyer Elaine Bredehoft claimed the actress truly suffered from multiple counts of domestic violence from Johnny Depp, but she always used a makeup product called All In One Correcting Kit by Milani Cosmetics to cover up the bruises that Johnny Depp allegedly inflicted on her.

Fortunately, the cosmetic brand stood up for Johnny Depp by debunking the claim. The fault with the claim is that the product (All In One Correcting Kit) which Amber Heard claimed she used to cover her bruises was NOT launched until 2017. The brand confimed that the product was launched a little over a year after the divorce had taken place.

The TikTok video posted by on Friday Milani Cosmetics explained that the makeup kit displayed by Heard’s lawyer would never have been available before 2017, emphasizing that the alleged abuse occurred before the launch of their All In One Correcting Kit.

While Amber’s attorney didn’t specifically name Milani Cosmetics in court, she held up the makeup kit as an evidnece, attempting to convince the jury that she (Amber Heard) carried that product every day in order to hide her bruises.

Although, it is possible that Bredehoft was just using the product as an illustration of the type of makeup Amber used during the abuse, but it’s also very possible that they were just lying about the abuse altogether.

The Aftermath

The high-profile trial resumed in a court in Virginia on Monday, 30th of May, and Depp was successfully able to prove that indeed, the the article titled “I spoke up against sexual violence — and face our culture’s wrath” written by Amber on the Washington Post– in which she accused him of domestic abuse — was a defamation of character.

Depp had always denied and stood against Amber Heard’s allegations from the beginning and he sought a minimum of $50 million in damages as compensation, plus a punitive award of at least $350,000, along with the court costs and attorneys’ fees he had incurred.

On Wednesday afternoon, a verdict was reached as Johnny Depp finally came out on top to win the court case against Amber Heard.

The jury determined that the greater weight of the evidence shows that statements made in Amber Heard’s 2018 Washington Post were false and made with a malicious intent to harm Depp.


Amber Heard’s was declared guilty of defamation and Depp was awarded $10m in compensatory damages, as well as $5m in punitive damages – a number that will be reduced to $350,000 pursuant to Virginia State law.

The court awarded Depp $10m.
