    So, apparently there's this product called "The Men Pen" - http://www.themenpen.com

    This thing is touted as the concealer for men so that guys can hide those unsightly moles, scars, wrinkles, dark circles, razor burn and other blemishes that make a guy a guy. And, apparently, it comes in 17 different colors and is used by male models and actors in everyday life.

    Can I ask why? From the cubicle I work at, I already see enough GUYS who actually wear concealer, foundation, and an assortment of other "products" already. Do we really need this?

    One of the endorsers include Ryan Ross, hhmmm:

    I dated a guy who used makeup. I didn't realize how much until we took our first trip together, and he unpacked this ton of stuff in the hotel bathroom. He even had a kind of clear lip gloss. It creeped me out.

    Whereas my own travel toiletries consist of toothpaste and unscented deodorant, and usually my own bar soap, since I typically don't like the hotel's. I don't even bring shampoo if I'm wearing my hair buzzed, just use the bar soap on it. And that's it, not an item more.

    So I'm with you: men don't need makeup.

    good lord, is it not enough I wear a moisturiser every freakin day? huh? do I now have to paint my face to reach some stupid and vapid ideal of perfection that is washed off to show the true hideous nature of who we are as unperfect beings in an unperfect world going about an unperfect life!!

    I hate makeup on anyone, it hides the truth under a layer of lies..
