when i am needing a pick-me-up, or particularly, right after i just dropped $140 on my highlights and i am feeling oh so pretty (for these hair prices lately, i should feel way more than just pretty!) i head to the drugstore in pursuit of a new lipstick! preferably walgreens, because, i know i talk about it waaaaay too much, but it's a midwest store and i am just used to it and love it and it's a piece of home for me when i visit there....but back to the lipstick, it makes me so happy to get a new lipstick. i am really obsessed with lipglosses -- my girlfriends here could tell you that one - i always have some new flavor going on and love to tell you about my newest find - last year's philosphy red velvet cake was the obsession around Christmas time.
the minute i get back in the car, i have that sucker opened and am trying it on in the rearview mirror. and if i've bought 3 of them, it's wipe it off, put on the new one, and same thing for the third new flavor.
BUT here is the problem when i get lipstick ....
now why on Earth do i even bother? they are ALL the same boring brown color. i have even brought home tubes that i have bought already 1 or 2 times before, only to have it still sitting in the makeup basket, never used. why can't i stray from the norm? just a tad bit?
i'm more of a drugstore girl when i comes to makeup - if it's something higher end, its after spending an hour in sephora trying on every type of makeup in sight until you finally feel chapped all over your eyes and lips and cheeks from wiping it off and then reapplying the next chosen item. so i've spent $2 to $30 for the "perfect lipstick?" but really, what is the point? i give up. it's brown for me forever. even mia, who is carrying on my lipgloss obsession at the young lovely age of 4 1/2 (dear God what's ahead for me?), asked why i can't have princess pink or red lipstick in my collection? maybe i'll just have to give that princess pink a try, for her benefit sometime soon. bring on the makeup remover, i can already feel it!
