Someone with a warped sense of humour came up with this week's Lipstick League question. If you could wear only one lip colour for one week and had just a split-second to decide, what would you choose?
I am absolutely capable of wearing the same shade for an entire week. I've done it before when I've fallen for something and simply lack the will to change things up. It happens. But having to choose deliberately a shade from which I can't deviate for seven days -- that's a massive, weighty decision. All I can say for sure is that it must be fuchsia. I love red. I love orange. (Nude schmude.) But fuchsia wins because it's fun, it's vibrant, it's youthful, day-and-night appropriate, and I'd wear it on my cheeks too.
As for exactly which fuchsia, I don't know. I want to be specific regarding formula and brand, but I can't decide when we're talking in theory. Probably whatever I can grab without too much dithering as I dash out the door.
Or maybe I'd take a yellow-pink.
Would you do better with this question?
