Freida Pinto: Skinned Lightened In L'Oreal Ad? (PHOTOS, POLL)

PHOTOS: Did L'Oreal Lighten Freida Pinto's Skin?

Freida Pinto has been one of the celebrity faces of L'Oreal since 2009 and has appeared in countless ads. But every so often, when a new spot emerges, people bring up the inevitable skin lightening question.

It happened in 2009 when L'Oreal first made the announcement and it's happened yet again with the debut of Pinto's new images for L'Oreal's Colors product line.

The Frisky brought to our attention the new spot, which features a close-up of Pinto's face with a rather lovely multicolor eyeshadow makeover.

Her skin does look on the lighter side, but is it just the lighting? Or Photoshop? It wouldn't be the first time a beauty company or magazine came under fire for doing so.

Or is this just Pinto's normal skin with a little bit of shimmery highlighter?

Check out the ad below and a recent pic of the "Slumdog Millionaire" star. What do you think?
