Makeup for Men

Makeup for Men is the hot new thing in the cosmetics industry. A few of the products available include:

Sport & Sun Tone Enhancer, which "simulates the healthy glow that a faint sunburn and exercise create." When sold to women it's called blush.

Confidence Corrector to hide blemishes and tattoos. I think women call this foundation.

Double Stroke Cream Mascara "for men who want handsome looking lashes without a 'made-up' effect."

And Blo-Job Bronzing Powder, "An instant tan at the end of the brush."

Double Stroke Cream and Blo-Job sound interesting but we don't need the rest of the stuff.

And, didn't men's cosmetics make an attempt a few years (decade?) back?

This and the mannyhose (see the link below) and you should be all set for a night of crossdressing.

This is going to go over as big as the man-bra. I had better rush right out and buy some stock in the company.

And as an FYI, I have NO use for a guy who wears make-up.

Release the inner Bowie in you!!

This stuff doesn't even look right for the goth look.

That's it! I'm going to start marketing the Madd Maxx Double Stroke All Purpose Cream. It works for everything. I just need to get started filling the jars...

Why is this so unusual, for centuries men used cosmetics. Granted is was usually the upper class that did but I don't think these products are being aimed at your average Blue Collar Joe. Nothing like mascara running into your eyes while your sweating two pipes together.

Private message for AGFH:

KW, does that apply to only "his" makeup or "any" makeup?

Of course.

BTW, as I read through the comments, it reminds me of something on the LOL Celebs site. There was a picture of Tim Curry as Dr Frank N Furter in his full drag regalia and there were nothing but posts of women gushing over how great and sexy he looked. So far there have been no responses like that for these products. I'm perplexed by the difference in responses (I know it's different forums and different pepole) but there exists such a huge rift. Any thoughts on that out there?

I mean after all, this is the Weird Universe. I thought at least one lady, or guy, would have spoke up.
