So last night Kathleen, Tori and I threw a kickin' shower for Jeni. At least, I think it turned out well. Good food, and good times. I forgot my camera so you'll have to wait until I get pics from Tori. Anyway, at the shower I noticed my friend Kelly had the BEST shade of lipstick on. And it got me thinking. I have never, ever found a good shade of lipstick. In fact, lipstick has always been a bit of a mystery to me. My best friend in highschool, Amanda, was a lipstick expert. The girl had 80 different shades that all looked fabulous on her and she was never seen with naked lips. The minute she stopped eating she'd be applying a new coat...without a mirror! But me? The ugly sidekick. I'd be glumly pulling out my black Chapstick and tightening the plaid shirt tied around my waist. Sigh...Every shade I've ever tried has just made my lips look really silly. The only time I was able to wear lipstick without looking lame was for that brief moment in the '90's when matte brown lips were cool. I was able to pull that off...sort of.
So, am I the only one out there? Is this just another sign of my Ugly Mom-ness? How do I remedy this bare-lip situation?
