Weird lipstick names

lipsticks with weird names

Actress, prime minister and makeup product name-er were just some of the jobs I wanted to do when I grew up. I'd love to work for OPI or Essie and help them come up with crazy product names. I've spoken about weird mascara brushes recently but now I'm about to delve into my makeup bag and rummage for the lipstick with the weirdest name.

(l-r)
Rimmel Vinyl Gloss in 'Snog'
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in '06 Pink Pong'
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick 'In Love With Ginger'
Loreal Glam Shine Lip Gloss in 'Magnetic Nude Glow'
Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Tint in ' Nothing But Nude'
Loreal Glam Shine Stain Splash in 'Romy'

It seems I either own a lot of Rimmel and Loreal products or they just make lipsticks with weird names. I had to include the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet which I picked up yesterday mainly because the colour is so beautiful I had to show it off.

If you had to name your own lipstick what would you call it? It's a lot harder than I thought it would be. I imagine it's the kind of stress you go through when thinking of what to name your child or what to call your first album. It took me 2 days to think of mine - That's Not My Name. Because I've spent my life correcting people on how to pronounce my name (k-eye-er) and I like The Ting Tings.

  1. That used to be my dream job too! If I could make my own lipstick the colour would be something like MAC's Cyber & the name would most defs have to be 'permanent bitchface' hehe :P

  6. Hah I think there are just so many products out there that people just revert to naming them strange things! I quite like the odd names though, shows how edgy the brand is sometimes! x
