“Excuse me, but I have to go powder my nose.”
It’s a quaint term stemming from the time-honored tradition of women who, besides seeking a euphemistic term for “going to tinkle” when in classy mixed company, really did need to do routine maintenance to their makeup. Out would come the compact to diminish the not-so-attractive glare forming on the skin’s surface, clogging pores with layers of talcum-based powder until she looked about as natural as a mannequin.
Those days may be over, but the need to not blind your boyfriend with the reflective sheen off your kisser remains.
Well, it just so happens you have some terrific fairy godmothers in the research and development department of the Minneapolis-based company that first brought you internationally popular Hollywood Fashion Tape, because we’ve come to the rescue again with our latest product, the literally face-saving Hollywood Oil Blotting Sheets.
Your complexion will be shine-free because these silky-feeling sheets instantly absorb surface oil, and best of all they never disturb your makeup. They come in a pretty, thin, easy-to-tote-along-in-your-purse package that cleverly dispenses the blotters one sheet at a time. Use each once and toss it, thereby ensuring the only “shine” anyone sees is your dazzling personality.
