THINGS I HATE: THE COLOR PUCE-MAKEUP EDITION.

Who really wants the color puce as an eyeshadow?

 

Coastal scents has one. Just wrong. 

 

Add it to the list.

That color would make decent face paint if your wearing camo and out on a paintball course or deer blind.  lmao!

Ummm, are you guys all doing some kind of inside joke thing? Puce isn't a green based color at all. It's a red or purple toned brown. 

 

Puce is the French word for flea. The color is said to be the color of the bloodstains remaining on linen or bedsheets, even after being laundered, from a flea's droppings or after a flea has been crushed.
The Oxford English Dictionary dates the first English use of "puce" as a color to 1787. The name comes from the French word puce, or flea, which comes from the Latin words for flea, pulicem or pulex. 

 

Considering the Coastal Scents shade is a pinky tan, I'd argue that they don't know what color puce is either, but it's not green or yellow.

Weird fact; puce is two different colours depending where you're from. Most Americans think of puce as being a pukey-greeny-yellow colour, whereas the French and British (and therefore some Canadians) think of puce as being the red/purplish brown.

I just looked it up in google images.. I got both the puke green and a pinkish colour.. I'm a little disturbed about this flea description though :smileysad:

This is hilarious.  I must agree.. I'm not a fan of Puce in any way, shape, or form.  Don't want it on my clothes, don't want it in my house, and I certainly don't want it on my face.

That's how I always call it, too... but I guess "puce" sounds more appropriate.
