'Underage Red' Isn't the Most Distastefully Named Beauty Product ... by Far! (PHOTOS)

woman applying lipstick at storeSure, we're all looking for the perfect lipstick color that totally complements our skintone and makes us look like we're glowing from within. Same goes for any kind of makeup really. But these days, if you're going to make cosmetics, you've gotta have a shtick. And by shtick, I mean catchy name. OPI, with their perpetually quirky nail polish monikers, isn't the only game in town, folks!

Unfortunately, in their attempt to sell us more lip gloss and bronzer with eyebrow-raising names, some cosmetics companies have pushed the envelope way too far. Case in point: Kat Von D's "Underage Red" lipstick, which recently, understandably caused a whole lotta outrage.

Here, 11 other cosmetics with inappropriate names that are really anything but cute.

Which of these is most jaw-dropping to you?

    Kat Von D's "Underage Red" isn't her first offense. In 2013, she was under fire for the name of this lipstick, which was ultimately discontinued. Not that she didn't continue to stand by its name, which "was inspired by the silliness of people who become famous for no reason outside attention-seeking behavior," she explained via tweet. Still, bad move, Kat.

  • Sephora by OPI's 'Irish I Was Thinner'

    I mean ... really, guys? What the hell does being Irish or wishing you were thinner have to do with a PURPLE nail polish? SMH.

  • Stila's 'Chinois'

    What a pretty cream colored shadow! It's probably called Cream, right? No. Its name is "Chinese" in French? Why???

  • Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics' 'Pearl Necklace'

    Eye-popping names appear to be this entire company's thing. And they even include mini-erotic stories on their site alongside cosmetics like this nail polish that probably isn't named after jewelry, if you catch my drift ... (Other polish colors include "Raunchy Bitch," "Hot Slut," "Pop My Cherry," and "Nail Me." Lovely.)
