I've been wearing lipstick again. Just a little -- I can't help it. It's the colours, you see. Striking reds Very Cherry and Sweet Nectar; delicious pinks Bit of Berry and Pink Peony; alluring plums Mauve-ulous and Plum Paradise; and look-again neutrals Warm Me Up and Sugared Honey... so many from which to choose. And it's the promise of smooth, easy-wear comfort, a moisturizing sheen and stay-true finish.
Once, years ago, when I'd not yet translated an inability to resist new makeup into a freelance sideline, I realized I had 30 gorgeous lipsticks I'd never worn. So I put into play a plan to wear them all in alphabetical order, each day a different hue around which I built the rest of the look. There are 48 rich shades of Maybelline New York ColorSensational Lipstick ($9.99 CAN each). They do rather tempt a girl.
A little promo campaign with my fellow StyleCollective.ca associates is the perfect excuse at least to try on one pretty colour. Here's how things are so far...
Psst -- I'm wearing it right now.
