When I was in college, visiting my friend Paige for spring break, we went to a Mall outside of Chicago, and it was Clinique Bonus Time. Now, if you aren’t familiar with bonus time, you spend a certain amount of money (it used to be about $15) and got a free makeup bag and a few makeup samples. Being the college students that we were, this concept was amazing.
I didn’t know what to buy at Clinique, and so I asked the woman at the counter what I should get. She reccomended Clinique almost lipstick in Black Honey. I bought it then, and I have never looked back.
This has been my signature lip color for (wow) almost ten years. I am at the end of a tube right now, and need to stop by Macy’s to get another. If you’ve never tried it, I suggest it, and question:
Do you wear your signature color at your wedding, or do you go darker?
I went to Sephora with my friend Amy a few weeks ago and the woman put me in a vampish red lipstick. I felt very clownish. I also felt that it was going to spread though the cracks around my lips the whole time. So I think I’m sticking with what works.
