My New Love

When I was a little girl (and a teenager and adult for that matter) I had a fascination with makeup. I loved the stuff...still do. But I never liked to take the time to put it on. Once I finished with all my years of schooling, I decided that I had to act like an adult and wear makeup and a grownup watch (but that's another story).

Every day I pull out my makeup tray and apply. I have done this for some years now. Only I usually don't complete my face. I get everything done except for the lipstick. And then I never remember to put it on. I have this dolled up face with pale, chapsticked lips!

A few month's ago, I stumbled onto my new love: Lancome Juicy Tubes in Caramel Delight. I kept it in my makeup tray and applied it even before I got dressed. Lip problem solved. Except that I kept it in my makeup tray and as you probably know, gloss doesn't last.

Recently I went to a large city near my small city for a conference. I took one afternoon for shopping and found myself at Sephora where I purchased my next new love: Stila Lip Glaze in Brown Sugar (I like my lipstick dark but my gloss neutral). It was $20, which I still have a hard time believing I paid, but I love it. I now start my day with Stila and bring on the Juicy throughout.
