This trio of pictures is meant to chronicle my intimate love affair with my new lipstick.
Is it possible to fall in love with a tube of lipstick? The answer is yes (at least for me) if it meets the following criteria:
1) It doesn't resemble the cakey matte lipsticks that your grandmama would perpetually get all over her teeth. 2) It has the silky consistency of a not-too-gooey lipgloss, but gives you the vibrant color of a lipstick. 3) Its bottle is so sleek and sexy that every time you take it out, you feel like you're a high society girl. 4) It lasts for an eternity, so you aren't constantly reapplying after you eat (because you eat like, alllllll the time). 5) At roughly $30 a pop, it pretty much preforms like the prized stallion of the lipstick world.
Lancome's Rouge In Love series is just that! The shade I bought a Sephora was
. It's a soft pink that is perfect for day wear, but also a nice base colour for nights. It's so light, I barely realize I have it on. It's snazzy enough to wear to a wedding, but also earthy enough to add to a minimally made-up face.
It's basically made me ignore all of my other lipsticks and engage in lipstick monogamy. Not even my Dior lipgloss can hold a candle to it. If Lancome does pinks this well, I can only imagine what their reds look like!?
Now excuse me while I go lock up my 'stick in my secret makeup vault. Goodnight everyone!
