Keep It To Yourself – Lips That Stay

Do your kids’ faces look like this?

Does your coffee mug look like this?

And do your lips look like this by mid-day?

I would like to introduce to you my favorite lipstick.  Available at your local drugstore:

COVERGIRL Outlast All-Day Lipcolor

There is also the Smoothwear line, and between the two, there are literally dozens of colors.

Apply the lip color, let dry for mere seconds, then apply the moisturizing topcoat. I’ve tried other brands of all-day lip colors, and the Cover Girl version beats them all. Every package comes with a tube of topcoat, but do yourself a favor and buy an extra to apply throughout the day. [Your lips may tend to dry out if you don’t.]

Here is a photo of my actual lips taken the other day just for this post. I took it in the evening, after I had gone through 3 cups of coffee, a sub (hoagie, zep),  glasses of water, pool splashings from my son, and finally, dinner:

For real!

Here’s a darker color to show you how well it covers, how moist it looks:

You must use a make-up remover designed for waterproof make up. [Put some in your toiletry bag for out of town trips.] My favorites?

Lancome Bi-Facil Double Acting Eye Makeup Remover and Mary Kay Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover.

Keep your lipstick to yourself all day, and be fresh enough for some kanoodling later that night!

  1. Wow I love that color! What color is it? Is it comfortable/moisturizing?
