Jinkx admits to losing confidence in applying her makeup under normal conditions but, too late, Ru will be watching your every move through night vision goggles. Lights go out and while Ru watches on, telling us it’s all fun and games until the looting starts, the queens are understandably subdued what with all the waist high tables around the room, but Detox still manages to ask Coco how she’s going to blend “her powders,” and HAHA, Detox. Good one. You know it was good because Coco’s already added Detox to her shit list.
Alaska jokes in interview that in the light or dark, she’s certain Alyssa’s pulling her Carol Burnett faces and, sure enough, Alyssa’s sucking in those cheeks like she’s got to work ‘cause the rent’s due. Ru blandly tells the queens she’s watching them but Ru lies. She’s checking out the Pit Crew’s junk while they lollygag around waiting for the lights to come back on.
Lights come up and the queens all take their places wearing giant funereal veils to reveal their handiwork. First up, Jinkx. It doesn’t look as awful as she thinks, despite looking like it was drawn on with crayons and magic markers. Detox is next and looks like Detox. I was going to joke that she had an unfair advantage since she just could use the contours of all that silicone in her face as a road map, but it’s not so funny now that I know it’s true. Alyssa’s isn’t bad since she focused mostly on her mouth, and is so enthralled by her reflection that Ru has to remind her it’s a challenge.
Next up is Ivy and points for trying to do her eyebrows but the overall effect is a little too Diane Ladd. Roxxxy’s next and is so SURE she’s going to get the same response Detox did until she sees the ragged mess she painted and says “No Ma’am.” But to be honest, her worst mistake was actually having that heinous shade of pink in her makeup kit. Gurr, orange girls should not wear bubblegum pink. They clash. To prove my point, pasty Jade is wearing almost the exact shade and yet it looks cute on her. Sure, Ru calls her “young boy first time in drag?” but still, young cute boy, not Oompa Loompa.
Coco’s next and she do love orange highlights with bright pink lips. Coco admits it’s bad like she’s hoping someone will say it isn’t, but Alyssa asks in interview, “Gurr, what was those colors?” Heh. Finally, Alaska. And rather than go for the win she goes for the laughs and just drew lips all over her cheek. She and Ru shriek but Ru jokes that it’s perfect.
So, of course Detox won, she had that road map. And with no segue we’re on to the main challenge. Ru tells the queens, except for Coco who remembers the mid 80s because she’s old, gurr, that back in the 80s supergroups like Band Aid and USA for Africa formed to record songs to raise money. And in that spirit, the queens will be writing their own inspirational anthem, “Can I Get an Amen.” The queens all say “Amen,” so Ru can say, no, that’s the name of the song…”Can I Get an Amen.”
She’s a joker, she’s a smoker, she’s a midnight toker.
