Note: I just thought the title sounded cool so I used it for this post.
Anyway, this post is really about lip care. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my mom which I’m still trying hard to apply to my daily life, that would be putting on lipstick. You see, I have a mother who never leaves the house without colored lips. She says it makes her look presentable even sans make-up.
As for me, I refuse to buy my own lipstick. It’s not in my priority list despite the fact that I now put on lipstick almost every day when I go to work. (That is, when I don’t forget about it!) All my lipsticks were given to me. At present, I think I have seven: one Ever Bilena, one Beauty Treats, one Elizabeth Arden two Avon and two from brands I don’t recall at the moment. I use them alternately so they don’t get empty fast.
I dunno with you, but I think lip care is also important. I’ve experienced having dry lips many times already and it was not the best feeling. By applying lipstick, or lip gloss/lip balm for that matter, I get to moisturize my lips and give it the care it deserves. So yeah, it’s not just for aesthetics, it’s for good hygiene as well.
If you’re gifting me with something for my birthday or for Christmas, make it a tube of nice lippy. I don’t care what shade it is because I like to experiment on colors. Also, any brand will do as long as it won’t ruin my lips. Haha. 🙂
