Calling all men!
Thinking about improving your look? Want to add pizzazz to your style? Is your gloss fading? Hoping to create a real stir among the ladies? Considered taking a leap into the great beautiful unknown?
Welcome ’Manscara’ and ‘Guy-Liner’ the new male-friendly cosmetics for the fearless modern man.
Manscara and Guy-Liner are products of Taxi Man cosmetics and are your way to a beautiful, bolder, better look.
A spokesman for Superdrug, the UK retailer stocking Taxi Man cosmetics, says the ‘Guy-liner’ pencil is chunkier than the female equivalent and therefore easier to use for men who have bigger hands. ‘Manscara’ is smudge free and waterproof, allowing men from all walks of life to use it on a daily basis with minimal hassle.
C’mon, don’t be shy. Go ahead and ask me if a Ugandan shop is stocking Taxi Man products and start the transformation!
The age in which men pooh-poohed grooming is gone. You guys have already embraced moisturizers, cleansers and exfoliators. The saloon I go to is full of men getting manicures, pedicures and facials.
If you decide to invest in these novel products, prepare to part with a pretty penny. Both products are £6.50. But don’t worry, you’ll be helping the growth of the international male cosmetic market.
Did you know Japan’s $3 billion male cosmetics market is one of the biggest in the world, accounting for nearly one-fifth of men’s cosmetics sales globally? Sales of men’s skincare products in Japan have surged in the past few years, growing an average 13 percent per year, despite a lacklustre overall cosmetics market.
Mandom is the most popular men’s cosmetic line on the market. Mandom, whose name combines “man” and “freedom”, sells products ranging from eyebrow kits to hair dye to powdered facial paper. Its best-seller is oil-removing tissue for men.
So there you go.
Of course your wife or girlfriend may think you are strange at the beginning, but you know what they say about pink shirts – you’re only a real man if you can wear one. Surely Manscara and Guy-Liner are the next step in the evolution of today’s man. Trust me, you’ll be thanking me for the result.
Oh, and don’t worry. I promise you won’t end up looking like Russell Brand.
Unless that’s what you want, of course …
