You all. I need your advice. Remember when we published this post about my favorite mascaras? After buying several mascara brands and testing them, I was able to find a few that I am really happy using. Well, I have another issue going on with makeup. This time it’s lipstick. I have a drawer full of lipsticks in various brands and colors, and none of them are working for me. I am seriously considering getting my lips tattooed. That’s right!!! I could easily apply lipstick 10 times a day and still look as if I am not wearing any. And, if you are a woman of a certain age (ahem) like me, then you know that we girls need our lips. As an aside, I often tell Jordan she needs to apply some lipstick, so you young girls need your lips, too!!!
My lipstick either disappears or cakes up on the edges of my lips in an unsightly glob. My lips are very, very dry on the edges. I talking very, very, very dry. The best lip balm for me is Vaseline. Who knows how many jars of it I have eaten over the years. Ha!
I recently ordered two tubes of lipstick from Color the World after seeing an ad for it on Facebook of all places. It promised to be creamy (it is) and not run (it doesn’t.) The tubes are adorable, and the colors are good. They’re also vegan, moisturizing and freshly poured as each order comes in. I need a bright color, and they delivered. However, it still doesn’t stay on as long as I wish it would.
If you have a lipstick for me to try that stays on, doesn’t clump up, and isn’t drying, please let me know. Also, if you have had your lips tatooed or know someone who did, let me know about that, too. Thanks in advance.
