Being that most people who gravitate to Bushwick are “artists,” there are times when it seems one can overreach in terms of trying to force the inspiration to come. Case in point is a duo of Bushdicks with free time creating a makeup line they’ve dubbed Cunt Face.
Pristine Pussy and Yamanda Decadent, the co-founders of the line, spoke frankly with The Burning Bush about why they wanted to start their own makeup brand. Pussy took a sip of Valium-laced champagne as she slurred, “I’m really just doing this so my parents will stop accusing me of not doing anything with my life. And I like that I can tell people I’m a business owner.” Decadent popped a Xanax and added, “Um, I just like putting makeup on and figured I might as well tailor my own color palettes.”
The color palettes in question are named after various famed and illustrious streets throughout Bushwick. For example, one eye shadow collection features names like Flushing Avenue Dump (brown), Himrod Boner (pink), Boring Boerum (taupe), Full Bushwick (black), Humphrey Bogart (gray), and There’s No Knish in Knickerbocker (yellowish tan). Individual palettes range from 3,000 to 6,000 dollars and come with a custom instruction manual on how to apply each shade. Cunt Face makeup is currently only available at Pumps.
