It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of lipstick; in fact, now that my internship is over, wearing a daily bright lip is one of the things I’m most looking forward to. (In addition to catching up on sleep, reading, and drinking copious amounts of coffee with fellow basic girls).
Anywho, I’ve been obsessed with bold colors forever, and I finally became courageous enough to wear them casually last school year. Since then, some favorite shades have emerged—including Maybelline’s Carnation Cabernet (hot pink), CoverGirl’s Tempt (a red pink), Maybelline’s Bit of Berry (a dark plum pink), Rimmel’s Matte Kiss of Fire (Taylor Swift red), and my absolute favorite: Rimmel’s Matte 107 (a deep, vampy red). I apparently do not tolerate noncommittal shades like nudes, pastels, or peaches. Also, I may or may not have a problem.
Lipstick is so cool. I mean, you don’t really see much variation within eyeliner or foundation—and I’m not a huge fan of eyeshadow. Lipstick makes women look confident, ambitious, and polished. It makes them look more distinct, and more unique. It’s like wonderful, colorful frosting.
I’m pretty sure that lipstick is what turns uncollected 20 somethings into Professional Adult Ladies. Chapstick and lipgloss are so adolescent. (Also, there have been studies that show that lipstick enthusiasts tend to be more confident, and hold higher power jobs)!
p.s. I know that people say that guys don’t like it, or whatever. That’s an absolute load of crap. Do what you want; if a guy doesn’t have enough testosterone to deal with your lipstick, then he’s weak and you shouldn’t want him.
