Earlier this summer season, Alex and I went to our good friend’s birthday dinner…

…and I swiped on a reddish-pink lip colour that lasted ALL night time. It lasted by the cab trip to the restaurant, by the Negronis that had been handed to us proper as we walked within the door, by the decadent bread basket, by humorous conversations, by teary toasts, by the red-velvet cake, even by the cab trip again house. I truly needed to wipe it off earlier than washing my face. 4 hours later!

What’s this holy grail lipstick? The Westman Atelier palette.

The value is splurge-y, however right here’s why I went for it: you get 4 lipsticks in a single — fuchsia, brick pink, tomato pink, dusty rose — and so they’re all beautiful. Since you apply together with your finger (or a brush), you possibly can create a wealthy, glamorous look, or you possibly can smear on just a bit bit to really feel horny and pure. I’ve tried a gazillion lip colours, and, to be trustworthy, this one simply makes me really feel so fairly!

What about you? I’d love to listen to what you assume is well worth the splurge. And as for a steal, I nonetheless stand by this $6 lip cream.
