>I thought I’d do a quarterly review of my New Year’s goals. OK, the quarter isn’t technically over, but I thought this would be as good a time as any to add a new beauty goal to my list. I’m going to try to wear lipstick on a regular basis.

My lips are chapped…alot. I slather on the lip balm like it’s going out of style, but nothing really helps. So, I thought why not just wear lipstick?

The problem has always been that I never find one that I like. I’ve been engulfed in various pinks and while I enjoy pink, as a lipstick it never really stirred my pot.

Red has always intrigued me, but I’ve never felt comfortable wearing it. It’s a bold color. It’s easy to pick the wrong one. Would I look like a clown?  Is it too dated?  Maybe it’s retro?

Today, I just picked the reddest red I could find and it looks fabulous! I feel pretty. Whether or not it makes me look like a clown, I don’t really care.  I’m tired of drowning in a safe pink or god forbid, dusty rose.

I put it on and asked my mom what she thought and got, “Oh…no…”

Thanks for bursting my bubble. I shouldn’t ask for an opinion. If a new beauty product looks good, a compliment will come unsolicited. Plus, I like it, so there.
