"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 with Hollywood Fashion Tape® 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.
