I used to wear lipstick all the time. Usually bright red, I always had it on. At some point it just became too much effort, I love how it looks when it’s perfect but I hate when it wears off and re-applying properly can be a pain. So instead of lipstick, I used lip gloss and balm and that was that.
I still wore lipstick for special occasions but it wasn’t something I did every day.The other thing that happened is that my skin tone changed and the reds that I’d always worn were a bit too much for my face and I’m not really up for wearing a statement lipstick everyday.
Over the past couple of years, I’ve tried new lipstick colours and eventually decided not to buy them or I bought them and didn’t use them them because the colour or the texture wasn’t quite right.
This year as part of a 2 for 3 I bought a Revlon Ultra HD lipstick in Arabica. This hit all of my lipstick needs. It’s shiny, I can put it on like a lipgloss without the need for liner or a brush, it’s fairly moisturising and the colour builds. It’s also pretty long lasting for an non matt lipstick.
I like them a lot and I’m learning to love wearing lipstick again.
