Listen, we've all been there: you find your own personal Holy Grail beauty product, be it mascara or hair gel, and you vow to never stray. But then one day, the unthinkable happens.... your beauty soul mate calls it quits! (cue threatening music) Rather than spend the rest of your days trolling eBay for half-used tubes of that perfect lip gloss, you decide to try and find a replacement. which, sadly, isn't as easy as it should be. Your simple search turns into An Epic Quest. This is the account of my Crimson Chase, my Rouge Odyssey, my Long Kiss Goodnight.
Wow, did this ever take a turn for the ENORMOUS. A gal sends out a few emails to a few press contacts, and suddenly she's swimming in red lipstick. (I know, I know.) So to do my part, I went back to the drugstore and bought the rest of the ones there that I thought might make it. I feel a little less guilty now. And all my girlfriends are thrilled that I'll have extras, so there's that. If you're behind, check out the first drugstore round, then my Estee Lauder round, then vote for the one that you like in this week's image.
And get ready gals; next week, I'm hanging out with Armani, D&G, Bobbi, and some other old friends. Then I promise I'll finish this off as quickly as possible.
Note: This round, we left the flash off, so again these look similar (also because I bought all samey-same colors). But for next week I made sure to gather a variety so you can get an idea of differences. Oh, and that weird pic of me (thanks Janetor) is our first casualty - my white sweater got a spot of lipstick on it. Boo.
