Rock the Gloss Challenge for Friday August 11th 2006:
I am wearing Monarch lipstick by MAC with DuWop's venom gloss in Coral Tree. I am insane over the texture of the DuWop gloss.
Koneko at http://beautydiary.blogspot.com/ loaned me a great book to read called Lipstick by Jessica Pallingston. It is everything you have ever wanted to know about the product.
A snippet concerning the naming of MAC lipsticks:
MAC's Frank Toskan explains that their colors are created by a group of makeup artists, and that once again, the naming process is a matter of colors being associated with words that come to mind. A purple will be looked at , and someone might mention that it looks like cellophane. It looks like plastic. Then the word comes...."Plastique". Or a color is looked at and someone will say, "Look at that color, that looks like ecstacy"-and theres your name. Naming colors is an evocative process. Look at the color....what do you see?Below: Picture of MAC Parrot(middle) and the inspiration.
What is your lippie today? Does the name fit it?
