OK, public service announcement here. I wish I had known about this years ago, and I’m gonna do y’all the service of telling you about the best cosmetic in the whole world. Seriously, I’m not a real make-up doll, but this stuff Rocks. Kiss your baby, kiss your hubby, eat some pizza, brush your teeth, untie a knot in a shoelace, whatever, this stuff is not going anywhere…. Really, I wouldn’t have believed it had I not tried it.
It’s MAC Pro Longwear Lipcolor. (scroll down on the link)
Oh, I know, long-wear stuff, a la Revlon, is gross. It’s cakey and dries out your skin and leaves you looking like a corn-husk doll. Nu-uh. Not this stuff. It’s positively the very best make up I have ever owned. Put it on in the morning, forget about it- six, seven, eight hours later, when you finally look in the mirror again, there it is, your perfect, plump, beautifully colored mouth. Looking lovely, not dried out at all. Fabulous.
It comes in over 40 shades, with three different glosses to be put over the top- so if you like the wet, gloppy vinyl look, it can be yours, too. Or, like me, you can just stick with a nice neutral color that keeps me from being washed out mama-chic. It is a tad on the pricey side at $20, but that includes a tube of fabulous gloss, and you really only apply it once, so it will last a looooong time. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
