Top Ten Tuesday: Kiss and Make-up

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is...

Kiss and Make-up!
This week's topic was inspired by those crazy Crayola crayon colors. When I was checking out some of those names, my mind wandered to the names given to various cosmetics. In addition to some slick packaging, many of my favorites brands have witty and fun names. 

Brands like Nars, Urban Decay, bare Minerals, Smashbox, and Milk Makeup have colors with names such as You Had Me at Merlot, Thrill Seeker, Wild One, Werk, and Never Say Never. I love that they are selling me on an idea and not simply stating the color. When I was scanning my read shelf, I saw some titles I imagined could be used for some hip and trendy lipstick.

What are the craziest color names you've heard?

  6. Great twist, (you had me at Merlot is such a good lipstick name!!) love all your choices, 'Girl, Defective' is great one - i'm imagining it purple-ish for some reason.

  7. You may end up with multiple comments from me.... but I've commented several times and it didn't seem to work. And since that's the issue I've been dealing with over on my blog I know it's on my end, so I'm trying to adjust settings and see if it works. ;)

    I love your twist this week!! I almost used Sunkissed, as well. <3

    2. Glad you got it! It usually shows a preview of my comment and then says it won't be posted until approved, but it was just disappearing after I hit publish. All my commenting issues have me a bit paranoid now. Haha. <3

  8. Whenever I pick out nail colors at the salon, I notice the fun, punny names. People are so creative! And I agree with your choices - they would definitely work well for cosmetics. Fun list.

    Happy TTT!

    1. I love making lists. Sometimes it can take a while to find the right books for the list, but I enjoy tackling each topic.

  12. Be Dazzled and Happily Ever Afters are both on my tbr! I have also been reading YA contemporary again after about a years break from the genre, so I am here on your blog for all the recommendations :D

    1. I enjoyed both immensely. I loved the cosplay construction aspect of Be Dazzled.

  13. Such fun picks! I think the idea of Kisses & Croissants would have me wanting to lick my lips constantly. LOL!

  14. I love your fun twist on this week's topic! I especially love Sunkissed for lip gloss, blush, or maybe a bronzer.

    1. I think almost all of these would work for most makeup, and I wouldn't doubt if there was already some Sunkissed stuff out there.

  15. They do have fun names for lipstick and lip gloss. Going Rogue would be a great name!

    1. Right! Extra points if they evoke the feel of these books. That's probably asking too much

  16. Okay I LOVE THESE! I would absolutely buy some of these for the name alone hahah. (Also, for some reason, now ALL I can think of is "Kissing Koolers"- you remember those? They were my JAM back in the day. Mostly glorified chapstick but they tasted so good!)

    1. I feel like you have talked about those before. I googled, and they look familiar. Did they have creme flavors? If they were late 80s, I know I was wearing "real" make up then (Estee Lauder, Clinique, etc). Body Shop was big too, and Kissing Potion.
