Shades of the ridiculous

Filed under: Uncategorized @ 10:55 pm

I have 3 shades of lipstick in my bag right now.  The are ‘Mauvy Night’, ‘Spiced Brandy’ and ‘Royal Red’.  Frankly, these names make me ashamed to be a marketer.  Why do I need a shade name that identifies that the lipstick is a version of red or pink?  Is there a huge surge in colour-blindness rates amongst lipstick wearers? 

I would like to change the names of the lipstick I wear to ‘Pretending I Don’t Wear Lipstick’, ‘Flirting My Ass Off’ and ‘Don’t Fuck With Me’.  Any company that has shades with those names, contact me immediately and I will buy some.

Here’s a question – blokes included.  Would you buy a shade of lipstick called ‘Gives Terrific Head’, ‘Deal Closer’ or perhaps ‘So Funny You’ll Wet Yourself’?  Ideas please… What would your shade be called?

I will post pictures of my shades as soon as I can figure out how.  Don’t wait around, it may take some time…

    Love it!!! How about one called ‘Dita Von Teese’ :-)

    They do it right with nail polishes though – I’m currently wearing one called ‘Take them to the cleaners’;-)

    Leighton Denny’s latest ‘The Criminal Collection’ with names like Jailbird, No Comment, Caught Red Handed, Daylight Robbery, Little Thief – excellent!
