makeup and myrna

Who comes up with the names for makeup? I mean, there is SO much makeup in the world. And every single piece has a name. Not simply "red" or "green" or "brown" or "blue", but names like "All Heart" and "Lime Sherbet" and "Bronze Satin" and "Denim".

That reminds me of the Myrna Loy bit in the old movie, " Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House." Did you ever see it?

Funny! I've never seen that before. I knew though what those men were going to say!
As for make-up names, I find some of the most bizarre on nail polish. Each season OPI comes up with a new set of colors just a smidge different from the last set. But the names are completely different, still strange, but different.

Interesting question. I just can't imagine all the thinking (and money) that goes behind the process of naming colors!

I've seen this movie. It's a good one!I should forward it to my decorator friend. She and Myrna could be decor sisters.
