Is Megan Fox Lying About Botox? Photo Challenge

Last week Megan Fox posted photos to her Facebook titled "Things You Can’t Do with Your Face When You Have Botox," likely to combat claims the 25-year-old is using the injectable to maintain her china-doll visage.
Now doctors are disputing the legitimacy of said photos, and say the wrinkles she has are as "natural" as her pout. To me, they look pretty realistic, but there is that weird arc shape...
So I thought "Gee, I'm 24, have taken great care of my skin (moisturizer and sunscreen since my early teens), have no wrinkles at rest and have never injected anything in my face... I wonder if I can make the same expressions she does?"
THE MEGAN FOX BOTOX CHALLENGE
Taken with the front lens of an AT&T iPhone 4:
To be fair, my forehead lines were more prominent in the camera screen than in this picture.
Hers looks legit. I need more lip gloss.
My face wrinkles above the brow when I do this... again, not as visible in the picture as in real life.
+1 for Megan's defense?
And finally, the photo causing all the doubt:
Look closely -- I definitely have some curvy-square lines, but nothing as arced as Megan's. This face was me furrowing AND lifting my brows. Quite difficult, actually (you know you're trying it right now).
My guess is she had Botox, and it's wearing off. Particularly in the last photo, I could not make that face without my brows moving in weird ways, and hers stay firmly in place...
What do you think? Were Megan Fox's photos altered?
As a side note, photos taken with the back camera on my iPhone4 were much better quality, and highlighted more wrinkles. Based on Fox's grainy images, I'm guessing she used the front cam of a similar phone -- perhaps hiding some more lines. If so, you'd think she would've thought that through to prove her case...
