What changed my mind about lipsticks? Didn’t I used to think they are passe, belonging to my mother’s and grandmother’s era?
For the last few years, lip glosses have been the rage, providing sheerness, glossy lustre with a hint of colour. Nothing too ‘in your face’. But you know what, we turn out all looking pretty much the same; the weak subtle colour doesn’t help making one stand out.
Where has all the sexiness gone to? The visual pleasure? The signature red kiss every girl wants to plant on her man’s cheek? The last thing I want to leave on The Boyf’s face is mud sling of oily sticky petroleum jelly. And no colour. Bleargh.
“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”
