Have you ever picked up a lipstick or nail polish, read the name of it and just thought ” Uhhhhhh, what the eff?” Yeah, me too. There are some that are just a little weird, like “Nude Lust”, a lipstick from Maybelline (which is actually quite a nice color by the way), and we’re all familiar with the overly shocking sexual names like Nars “Orgasm” and “Deep Throat” blush. But then there are makeup shade names that are truly cringe-worthy.
“Melted Chihuahua” by Too Faced
Too Faced has a line called “Melted Liquified Longwear Lipsticks”, and while most of them have cute names like “Melted Peony” and “Melted Sugar” there is also a shade called “Melted Chihuahua.” I’m sorry, what?
“Roach” and “Mildew” by Urban Decay
Yes. Roach and Mildew are eyeshadow shades by Urban Decay. I get that they go for some “edgy” names, but come on. Even though I know it’s just eyeshadow, and they’re actually both strikingly beautiful shades, I’m a little leery about putting them near my eyes.
“Camel Toe” and “Full Brazilian” by Cheeky Monkey
Camel Toe and full Brazilian are nail polish shades from Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics. Trust me when I say that there are way worse shade names than the two shades I chose to share here. Search at your own risk.
“Spackle” by Laura Gellar
The word spackle just makes me feel like my face is a home improvement project, and something about it just doesn’t sit right with me. Sorry, Laura Gellar. I think I’ll find a primer that has a name that doesn’t liken my face to drywall.
“Uh Oh Roll Down The Window” OPI
Are you serious right now, OPI? This isn’t edgy, or sexual, or clever. It’s just gross. Maybe it’s just me, but when someone asks me what shade my nail polish is, I don’t want them to think I farted when I tell them.
