OK, so my next door neighbor has these flowers in her front yard, and there’s this orangey red one. Every single time I walk by it I have to stop and stare for a few seconds because it’s so vibrant and eye-catching.
I was under its spell yesterday and thought, “I need to find a lipstick like that…”
Then I thought, “And I need to wear that lipstick…”
Then I pictured dream Karen throwing her arms up in the air, twirling around in circles and screaming, “It’s summer, world! HAAAAAAY!”
OK, that last part didn’t happen. But maybe if I’d had a glass of wine first…
Anyways! The flower looked exactly like Fire, one of the reformulated Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipsticks I mentioned yesterday.
An opaque electric orangey red, Fire sometimes borders on coral, depending on what I’m wearing (it’s kind of a chameleon), like this reddish coral shift dress I’m wearing today.
Today I think Fire looks more coral, but when I wear a black or white shirt, I think it looks more red.
Now, about the formula, my lips aren’t in the best shape right now. They’ve been very dry lately (I think they got wind burned in Redding), and there’s some flaking along the edges, but not when they’re on Fire!
LOL! Sorry, bad pun. I just wanted to write “…not when they’re on Fire!”
I meant, not when I’m wearing Fire.
It applies smoothly and incredibly opaque, and here I’m only wearing one layer.
