So I really thought I would find it hard to put lipstick on my lips, Monday to Friday, for 2 months. I thought it would be tedious and the bane of my day for the duration of the challenge. But so far I have been quite excited to try a new look based around my lipstick.
Granted, a few of the times I have worn something "unusual" the Hubs has nearly "done his neck" doing a double take at the brightness that may have adorned my visage.
I have genuinely enjoyed the challenge so far. Even on my "down" days, when I wake up feeling a bit blah, I have found that making a bit of effort has gone a little way to improving my humor and lightening my mood.
This is Pout, by Avon. I have worn it a few times during the challenge. I think it is a pretty, cool toned pink. Well, it is in the bullet, but swatched it changes its spots and warms up a tad (literally and figuratively ;) )

It doesn't really "dry", so it seems to smudge a bit and wear off quickly. It leaves loads of marks on my cup or my glass. But that is ok for me, it makes me smile 'cos : "holy shit, I am wearing flipping Lipstick!!!!!"
Pout feels really a lot like a balm, it is slippy and smooth and comfortable to wear, but if I smoosh my lips together too much, then it can end up outside my natural lip line, which tends to look a bit odd. So, as long as I remember to touch up, it looks pretty.

It makes me feel pretty and demure at the same time, so I am tending to pair it with a neutral or natural eye.
So far... so good.
You can still get Pout from Avon. Chat to your Avon Lady, she will love you for it :)
