“I said pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.” ~ Marilyn Monroe

Friends and Neighbors,

I'm here today to admit to you a fatal feminine flaw of mine. You see, I didn't learn how to apply mascara or eyeliner until Junior Year of high school. I joined Color Guard (which was a BLAST, in  case you're wondering) and learned to apply makeup in such a way that you could make out my facial expressions from 100 yards away. Needless to say, my new found talents of makeup design were not appreciated on your average Tuesday in 2nd period. So I ran away from the rouge and coal. Far, far away.

Then... a couple of weeks ago, I received a cute little package with a cute little lipstick inside.

Oh. My. Goodness.

I can't even tell you the last time I wore lipstick for anything other than headshots. This gorgeous little piece of mouth candy could NOT be ignored. And I've worn it! I wore it to work, to Target, and most recently, to the UK vs. Wisconsin Final Four showdown at our local Buffalo Wild Wings. Yeah. It's versatile. And I feel super sassy wearing it, of course, but it's not so striking that others are distracted by the party happening on my mouth.

Believe it or not, that pretty pout there above "Lipstick" is actually mine! #PhotoShopForTheWin

Best of all: It was free! Woo, Influenster! You rock. :)
