Wearing LancÃ´me Rouge in Love Lipstick in 181 Rouge Saint Honore on my lips
If one were to poke a nose into my refrigerator right now, they would see a sorry sight. Except for three sad jalapeÃ±o peppers and a package of spinach ravioli, the shelves are mostly bare, and that’s because El Hub and I blew off grocery shopping last night to go and see The Artist instead.
What a great film! I loved every minute, but I went into it with some doubts — not because it’s black and white, but because it’s a kind of silent movie and very light on dialogue.
Glued to my seat! I can totally see why it won Best Picture.
And the lips. THE LIPS! Good thing there were only a few other people in the theater because I kept ooh-ing and ah-ing at the screen. Peppy Miller — she’s the leading lady — was rockin’ the bold, crisp lipstick, and you could clearly tell even in black and white.
So what did this particular beauty junkie do when she got home later that night? Put on a layer of the most pigmented lipstick she could find, of course, in this case the $25 LancÃ´me Rouge in Love, which, I might add, she wore with her black and pink pajamas.
I’ve been wearing 278 Divine Seduction (a warm raisin) and 181 Rouge Saint Honore (a bold red) a lot lately, whenever I’ve been in the mood for a bold lip.

My technicolor side appreciates how much pigment they deliver (even from a single stroke), while my practical side likes the five-hour wear time.
Whenever I slip one of these on, I feel that much closer to Bogart and Bacall.
PRICE: $25 each

Late night party people…NOT
Well, there won’t be any more movies on school nights for this girl (at least not this week). No, ma’am. I was up until 3 last night/this morning. Not sure exactly why, but tonight I’m turning in early.
El Hub’s working late, so I’m going watch a few episodes of The Golden Girls until I pass out…
Thank you for being a friend
How was your the rest of your Wednesday? I hope something nice happened to you.
