i've been wanting to try out this oxblood/deep berry/wine-stained lipstick for a while, but it was intimidating to me because let's get serious, it's kind of not all that wearable. like what if you want an ice cream cone? or what if you can't control yourself and need to kiss your baby's face a thousand times? or what if you just want to have a steamy makeout sesh in the car with your husband? this lipstick thing complicates that.
given that this is a seasonal trend and i don't have a million dollars in the bank, i went up and down the aisles at target for a cheap lipstick. i scored this wet n' wild color in "dark wine" and i am surprisingly satisfied with it (and it's under $3!) i couldn't find a lip brush in my stash, so i applied it straight from the tube (don't look too close at these pictures) so if you have a brush, use it. and it's also really pretty as a stain, if you apply it and then rub it all off. leaves a more wearable, subtle color.
so have at it, my friends! be wild and adventurous and try something new!
