Pals and I were just discussing what the name of this lipstick is from the 80's.

It was pale mauvy bluey pink, frosted and made your teeth look yellow, but everybody had it.

Anybody know what the name was?

was it Rimmell or 17 or Constance Carroll?

Wasn't it constance carroll. That's the one that came into my mind!!

Rimmell... Heather something?
I was a 90s teen but that sounds like the vile one all the girls at school wore - not me, I wore the equally vile Black Cherry grin

Heather Shimmer maybe?

JeremyVile Sun 20-Dec-09 02:12:19

Was it Cocoa crush, by 17?

Although sounds more like rimmel's heather Shimmer.

Ha ha just saw the thread on actives and knew it had to be Heather Shimmer. Most revolting unflattering shade ever but was slathered on in copious amounts by all teh girls at school!

I have a tube of heather shimmer and it is NOT pale mauvey bluey pink in the slightest. Back to the drawing board for ideas...

Another vote for Twilight Teaser. EVERYONE wore it. Suited no one.

Elfytigga Sun 20-Dec-09 08:12:52

Nope it was def Twighlight Teaser.

And there was the electric blue mascara that you had to wear with it.


Omg all the cool girls had heather shimmer but alas not I
