I was thinking the opposite but then seeing tomato sauce on maxi-pads didn't sit too well for me.

Endless uses, really, but I can't imagine using one around my eyes. Yikes!
my mother in-law's gentleman friend used a black magic marker (i'm pretty sure it was a sharpie) on his mustache for my wedding cause he wanted to cover the grays... His elevator doesn't exactly go to the top floor. It looked blue...

Too funny! Maybe he was just color blind!
