The one-minute commercial for L’Oreal’s Elvive line opened with an actress wearing a full-length black dress as she paces up and down in a dressing room, her face not shown.

She then reclines on a sofa and runs her fingers through her lustrous long brown hair before going to sit at a lighted mirror (and we’re still unable to clearly see her face but it looks like the Stanger Things actress).
