Cosmetic words to numbers

  1. Jul 16, 2009 #1
    Hello all, i found a menser teaser in the daily express, this is the first Menser teaser where i can not find any connection between anything.


    The order of the number for various cosmetics are as shown. What number is EYELINER?

    MASCARA-1100
    CONCEALER-250
    LIPSTICK-152
    LIPGLOSS-101
    EYELINER-?

    I don't know the answer to this brainteaser and i could not find it on the internet, if anyone has any ideas about how the hell this brainteaser works please post them.

    Thanks for any replies :wink:

    Roman numerals?

    M+C = 1100
    C+C+L = 250
    L+I+I+C = 152
    L+I+L = 101
    L+I = 51
