I went to Sephora with a friend in search of a cherry scarlet fire engine red lipstick to wear to a concert and party at the French Consulate this Friday...and found this winner:
However. Let's be clear, I am an absolute fail with makeup, and the fact that I have dry skin and lips made this stuff almost intolerable after an hour and a half of wear. That, and the aquaphor I normally use for my lips is something the stain sort of dissolves into, and every time I put more on, my applicator finger would turn red. Fail.
But---it does turn your lips a fabulous red, and I loved how it looked four feet away. Even so, "coloring between the lines" is simply not my forte. And something so bright is not the training wheels I need, I think, no matter how much I want to rock them. So we'll see what I do. For those ladies out there that actually know how to use makeup, this one is a keeper.
Also--Monday's groceries for the week? Four pints of blackberries and four pints of raspberries, $36. The benefit to being on the meal plan is the extra money I can spend on berries.
