I have issues ...

Okay, so I have serious lipstick issues. I've been on a quest lately to find a red lip color that I like. As you can see, I have plenty of red shades. What I'm interested in are the non-transferrable ones. I love lipstick, but really don't like getting it on my glass, food, or anything else that happens to get too close. Some of the brown shades don't bother me, but when it comes to a flaming red — things get messy! 

I like Cover Girl's (right on the lower picture), but it tends to come off after awhile. When it does that, it comes off in chunks, not just wears off. I really like Revlon's ColorStay, but the gloss is like glue. So, I usually end up wearing that one with CG's gloss because the Revlon one is super sticky. Then recently I tried NYC 16H Lipstain. I loved how it applied with the felt-like pen, but it came off when I ate. So much for 16 hours. Then a friend suggested I try Hard Candy, so I got that All Glossed Up one. It's glossy alright — and it comes right off like lipstick. Someone else suggested that I let it dry for it to set in, which I did, but it still came off. So my quest continues. I'm a cheapskate and don't want to spend a lot on this. I'll get what I pay for then. Ugh.

I don't know. I guess if the only thing I have to whine about lately are annoying hashtags and finding the perfect lipstick, then things just aren't so bad.


  1. Oh dear. You might have to splurge on a good lipstick for what you ended up paying for all the cheap ones you don't like!

    1. LOL -- no way. I'm way too cheap. I'll end up using all of these anyway. :)
