Lipstick was apparently invented in ancient Mesopotamia by women who crushed jewels to decorate their lips. I’m really glad us ladies don’t have to go through that anymore to get an awesome lip color!
My favorite shade of lipstick is ‘Strawberry Suede’ by Revlon. I’m actually wearing it in my Lovelyish ‘About Me’ picture. It’s a matte, bright, poppy watermelon-red. The matte formulation makes it last forever. It is a very summery shade, but I wear it whenever I can get a chance, year-round! It’s been discontinued by Revlon but you can find it on Ebay for fairly cheap.
