The sad saga of lipstick
Apply. Wipe carefully around edges of lips.
Wipe off too much, reapply.
Oops. Rogue lipstick! Wipe edges of lips again.
Discover piece of black pepper winning at hide and go seek.
Smudge lips a tiny bit. Outside of mouth getting raw.
Remember lip liner. That could’ve solved everything.
Apply liner after the fact.
Too much! May day!
Reapply lipstick to cover almost all liner, leaving an attractive edge.
Late by 2 minutes now.
Clean water bottle.
Apply just a smudge more.
3 minutes late.
Sigh, throw hands to the heavens. Ricochet off car roof, spill coffee.
But thank heavens the lipstick is just right.
Thirsty, but ignore.
Arrive at destination.
Five minutes late.
Sit down to eat
25 minutes later…
The lipstick is consumed. I don’t care anymore.
P.s. Though I have roamed the earth, the only lipstick I have ever truly liked was light, not sticky, and moisturizing. I know they all say they are moisturizing, but this one actually does! Introducing… the $5 beauty inspired by Kate Moss, Lasting Finish!
P.P.S. Amazon compensates me every time you buy something. #amazonassociate
