This past Sunday, I was outside with Sabine when our too-chatty neighbor, a seven-year-old girl, saw me and asked, "Don't you usually wear makeup?" "Yes, a little," I replied. "Oh," she said. "Well, you look better with it on."
Shorty also found it necessary to tell me that my shorts were too short and that I "ALWAYS" wear the shirt I had on that day.
I wanted to tell shorty to beat it, but I didn't. Instead, I put on my adult pants, restrained myself and changed the subject of my appearance. But I found myself wondering if I really do look THAT much better with lip color.
Maybe. But I'm still going to rock naked lips when I want to. And for the times when I do use color--and want it to actually stay on--InStyle suggests choosing a thick and sticky gloss, which has added staying power. They also recommend "prepping" your lips by making sure they're moisturized and removing any dead or dry skin with a toothbrush.
