    A serious stomach ache from the makeup.

    The hairspray, who knows....probably was after the propellants in it.

    As for as the hairspray, he could be dead. The make up and lipstick, that is another story. It is a wonder that his lungs still function from the hair spray. The high price of hairspray and make up, he could afford a bottle of liquor. If he ate make up and lipstick, I am sure it made him vomit, this may be why he did not have to be rushed to the ER. I would think the only thing that would make him high is the hairspray, but who in heck can stand that much and try to breathe

    The kind that leaves you liver/kidney damaged, brain damaged or dead.

    People have been getting high for over a hundred years now.

    Don't you think word would have gotten around if that kind of crap worked.

    Are you thinking of trying this or do you want to know if you should call an ambulance for your friend?

    What, a little grass isn't good enough anymore?

    From inhaling hairspray-dead, period. Brain damage if you live. The other stuff I don't know but probably really sick, like your friend is. He needs to be locked up for his own good. That's suicidal behavior, but so is active alcoholism.

    Eating makeup will get you nowhere considering it's all 90% wax. Inhaling gets you a momentary high that is like being drunk. It also eats big holes in your brain.

    Since it's poisonous, he can get sick and die. I mean, hair spray will coat the lungs and reduce the amount of oxygen he gets (I don't know whether or not the hairspray would harden in his lungs). You should consider whether to try and get him help for his problems...

    I've never heard of anyone eating make up but I know that the inhailing of the hairspray is very dangerous. I believe that it kills many brian cells and can kill you. Please get this person some help, if you can.

    The worst kind. You could end up dead. Ya, I know it will not happen to me. That is what the dead kid said also and it was his first time according to the police report. If it does not kill you then it will fry your little brain. It is not worth the risk if you are truly asking. Please simply say no.

    Death from the spray. Stupidity from the lipstick.

    Instead of asking what kind of "high" you can get maybe you ought to be asking where can I get my friend help. It sounds like your friend needs quite a bit of it.
