I have the horrible habit of completely forgetting to do anything to my lips when I put on makeup. I am not huge into lipstick, but I do own quite a few glosses/glazes/stains/etc. However, I only ever seem to use lipbalm the most. And I only really put it on if my lips are sore and dry and peely. Bad habit, I know. Lips are fragile and thin-skinned and need protection from the elements. I think I read somewhere that lips had a higher instance of skin cancers forming, and that women thus have less of that location because a lot of us wear lip product. Interesting.
I want to love lipstick, I really do. It always ends up looking like I'm playing with my mother's makeup as a kid though. The rare exception is when I have unnaturally coloured hair. Case in point, me with black and red hair. Dark lipstick, looks nice IMO.
Yeah. If I tried that now with natural coloured hair I would look like either a) that I am trying too hard to go for an avant-garde look or b) like I set my makeupgun to whore like Marge on the Simpsons. lol. So maybe I am doing things wrong, maybe I can try again later. Actually, yeah, I'll try again a lot. I have a few lipsticks that I need to use up.
