While shopping for Christmas presents my mother and I were in Sephora and I turned to see a sales woman wearing the brightest, happiest pink lipstick. It reminded me of the pink of a Barbie dream house only ON HER LIPS.
I know, I know, most of you out there are thinking, why would she want Barbie pink on her lips? Believe me, you think it’s going to be ugly, but it’s not. Let me backtrack a moment here. Since I am known for eating off lipstick in about an hour without having any food or drinks I’m always on the lookout for a long-lasting lipstick. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Backstage Bambi.
It glides on smoothly and is just as bright on your lips as it is in the package. It stays on my lips for a good 5 hours. People, that is almost miracle level. This isn’t for every day wear, especially if you work in a conservative office. I do think it’s great to wear for when you feel like being a little sassy. Or perhaps on a date with a neutral eye so the focus is on your lips… which we all know men are looking at anyway.
To make the lipstick glide on smoother, it’s a good idea to have soft lips. We’re almost out of winter and the chapped lips that are the norm, thank goodness. But what if you want to wear this now. This very second? You’re in luck. There’s a product on the market that impressed me so much I had to run right out and buy it.
Bite Agave Lip Mask
This is a product that I will probably end up buying again and again. It’s a little difficult to push up and out, but maybe I just have weak fingers. You poke a hole in the top with the black cap then press up from the bottom to get the product out. Mine comes out in a sticky, gel like substance, but not gooey. I put it on my finger and rub it on my lips. It must have little crystals in it because it feels slightly gritty when one puts their lips together. It even tastes like sweetness. Since it’s made from all natural products, you don’t have to worry that you’re ingesting something toxic.
This wraps up my post on my new favorite lipstick. Here’s a picture of me, happy, wearing my Backstage Bambi lipstick, ready to conquer the world! Or just have fun trying.
