It's no secret I can "kinda" be a diva and a girly-girl; sometimes.
I LOVE my shoes and clothes. I have to be looking "just so" in order to walk out the door. But....I'm lazy. I want to do what I need to do and be done with it. Which probably explains why I sport curls more in the summer - because I don't want to fight the humidity.
Huh....apparently blogging can bring on epiphanies when you least expect it.......and it's cheaper than therapy.
I love lipstick; I do. BUT I don't like the thought of having to re-apply all day long.
I don't have time for that. I'm a busy woman - quit laughing; I AM busy. Sometimes.
I just don't want to think about it. I want to get dressed and made up in the morning and walk out the door and be done.
So for years now, I've been using CoverGirl's Outlast lip color. I've LOVED it. I put it on in the morning and forget about it. I can eat, drink, go to the dentist - whatever. It stays on for the majority of the day. It's fabulous. I'm totally NOT kidding. My dentist (and her hygienist) both marvel over the fact that they can slave over my mouth and I can get up and it will still be on!
Except for the reds. The reds will NOT stay on at all. If I wear the red it will usually melt off before lunch.
Which is a shame, because I love me some red lipstick.
So, I've made do with a beautiful berry shade.
Maybelline has introduced a new line called Superstay 24 Color.
I admit; although I usually don't stray from the "tried and true" I will try a new product that promises that I don't have to re-apply my "lips."
I picked a red because of my love for red lipsticks. I didn't hold out hope because I've been disappointed so many times.
But this time? This time I can honestly say that it worked. Better than CoveGirl's reds ever thought about.
Although I didn't get a red-red (because apparently there are other women out there like me and they snapped them up) it was still a red (and not an orange-y red). And it pretty much stays on for the entire day. Yes, I have to let it dry longer than the CoverGirl product but....it works!
As an example, I applied it around 4:00 pm yesterday prior to going out. Despite washing my face and brushing my teeth before bed much, much later, the color was still there this morning (albeit a bit fainter - but it was still there).
Sorry CoverGirl, it looks like I may have found a new product (if it passes the dentist visit test) - unless you can figure out how to fix your red "issue" because you do have a red that I love - it just won't stay on.
Please note, I was NOT compensated in any way for this post. I just wanted to share a new find with you.
