Women, don’t you just hate it when a company discontinues your lipstick shade? Comedian Wendy Liebman was sad-face after Mac killed her “X-Pose” shade.
But then, a fairytale happened to her.
“Just by random chance, or zeitgeist, I met this guy at a restaurant who works for Mac Cosmetics, and I said, ‘Why did they discontinue my shade?’ And he had them make up my old lipstick for me,” Liebman told me.
But here comes the sad-face again.
“He had eight tubes made for me, but that was three years ago, so I’m pretty much out now,” Liebman said.
“You must have felt pretty special,” I said.
“I just don’t understand. It was a popular color. What were they thinking?” she said.
“Any woman would appreciate that story,” she told me, since I’m a man who can only sympathize, not empathize.
Liebman and Caroline Rhea perform on the same bill tonight at the Venetian’s women-comedian series “Lipschtick.”
STRIP CLUB CAR SHOW FOR WOMEN’S CHARITY
The Palomino Club strip club is having a car show 7-9 p.m. Saturday to raise money for The Shade Tree 24-hour shelter for women, their kids and their pets.
Some 15 businesses are helping with raffle prizes. All proceeds go to the shelter.
The Palomino Club is rare for Vegas in that it has both alcohol sales and all-nude dancers (who do more impressive pole dancing than women at any strip club or nightclub I’ve ever seen. Yes, I know firsthand. I do things in Vegas. I live in Vegas and I don’t let Vegas go to waste.)
LOCAL FILMMAKERS PLUS CUTE ANIMALS
On Sunday, Las Vegas filmmakers Jerry and Mike Thompson have a 1:20 p.m. local debut for their new family-friendly, “Chaplin-esque” movie, “Popovich and the Voice of the Fabled American West,” at the Las Vegas Film Festival.
The flick uses all local cast and crew, while Vegas performer Gregory Popovich has his animals do stunts, tricks, acrobatics and disco dancing.
The film won the audience award at the Dances With Films festival in Los Angeles. The brothers’ previous local movie was the well-reviewed “Thor at the Bus Stop.”
The new movie stars dozens of rescued animals from the Lied Animal Foundation. The film fest is at Inspire Theater. For more info, check LVFF.com.
The movie will also get public showings Aug. 30-31 at the Palms hotel theater, where $1 from each movie ticket goes to Lied.
And what would Vegas be without its emerging Miss Asian Las Vegas Pageant?
The Miss event returns to town Sept. 28 in the Palazzo hotel. Tickets, $28, go on sale Aug. 8 at the hotel.
