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.
It’s available now with the rest of the Classic Cream Lipstick line at Dolce & Gabbana counters and saksfifthavenue.com.
A Netflix-related public service announcement
If you subscribe to Netflix, and in case you didn’t know, The Craft is available!
I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve seen this freaking movie. I’ve actually lost count.
I don’t know what it is about ’90s witchy chicks, but there’s something very cool about the whole thing.
It stars Neve Cambell (remember her?!), Skeet Ulrich, Fairuza Balk and Robin Tunney (also from The Mentalist, and oh! — girlfriend has not changed! She looks the same, so I’ll have whatever she’s having, thankyouverymuch).
I’m gonna watch it again tonight, hopefully with a bag of See’s candy (yes, I’m still craving chocolate).
Have you seen The Craft? And what are some of the movies you can totally watch over and over again (also up there for me: Bring It On, Clueless, Step Brothers, Mean Girls, any sort of bad movie about demonic possession, Reality Bites, Blue Crush…and that’s all I can think of at the moment).
