A little lippy

After going to my annual mole check at my dermatologist’s office I thought it only appropriate to go to my local beauty store and re-up on my 30 spf daily facial moisturizer. Complete no-brainer, I walk to my tried and true cream, grab it from the shelf and start making my way to check out. Then, I gaze over toward cosmetics and I am reminded of the many battles fought and subsequently, lost in the lipstick aisle. Maybe it was the urgency of my dry lips from these cold winter days or maybe I was feeling really confident because all my moles were given the okay (Get an annual mole check!), but this time, I decided I would find both a bright lipstick and a nude lipstick, forever breaking free from being a tinted balm only kind of girl.
