Guys, guys, guys! I see you checking yourself out in mirrors, constantly fixing your hair, rubbing yourself down with scented lotions and powders. Sure, you smell nice. Your skin is soft, your pores are clean. But has looking good cost you your manhood?

Many men own enough beauty products to make a drag queen envious. Listen to John and I talk about make-up for men.

Dave:  So a buddy of mine just showed me in the department store the other day, um, these kits, which are men’s cosmetics. You know, there’s an oil absorbing powder, there’s eyeliner for men, a lip liner.

John:  Really?

Dave:  Yeah. And it’s just, I don’t know. They’re saying it’s for the modern man. It’s really metrosexual to me. I don’t know that I like it.

John:  Yeah, well, I know that I don’t like it that much. I can’t imagine putting make-up on. You know, some people do it.

Dave:  Yeah.

John:  And I see, I see, some people spend a lot of money on lotions and shaving creams and after shave.

Dave:  Guys!

John:  Yeah.

Dave:  And it’s a new, a relatively new thing. They’re saying it’s going to be a big market in the next ten years. I could see it happening. People are always changing, we’re becoming much more self-conscious.

John:  Yeah.

Discussion

American men spend well over $1 billion a year on beauty products. (Actually, women use beauty products; men use grooming products. Know what? It’s the same thing!)

Ben Affleck, Robbie Williams, Johnnie Depp, and Ewan McGregor have all confessed to using cosmetics. What about you guys out there? Do you doll yourself up in the morning?

Here are links to some popular makers of men’s cosmetics:

Studio 5
Menaji
