LIPSTICK AT THE TABLE….shame on you!
My girlfriend Anne raises her eyebrows when I whip out a lipstick for a flash touch-up maneuver after coffee, but I would rather be seen clutching a lipstick tableside, than wend my way to the ladies room to fight for equal time at the mirror. Go for the glitz – silver and gold rule! It’s sexier to have a lip color that can be distinctly yours, like Dior Dior Addict Lip Color Coral Lace instead of a generic Lipstick #112… Splurge on beauty items that get seen most often like lipsticks or compacts. Anything you apply once in the AM doesn’t have to carry well, it just has to wear well. The perfect lipstick looks like fine jewelry and makes that ‘clicking’ sound you love when you close the case. Remember that during WWII, women bought chocolate and lipstick to make themselves feel good!
