I'm such a novice.
I watched Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette for the first time when I was 14. That launched the obsession with berry lip colors. This was a few years before I started my first blog, and I wasn't really aware of certain colors being reserved for Autumn. However, I never really got around to trying the lip shades myself as a teenager. Now I've got this. It's L'Oreal Paris Color Riche liquid lipstick in the shade Plum Adagio. It's driven me insane.
This is a total miss for me. I'm fine with lipstick, I really am. I wear lipstick. It's one of the few makeup products I can handle. This is obviously not a normal lipstick. It was labeled as a liquid lipstick, but after failing to make it work numerous times, I think it's more of a lip stain. The first few times I applied the product, I couldn't figure out why it was patchy, and it never dried. When I was taking these photos, I figured out that by blotting, I end up with a slightly darker stain than my natural lip color. This is not worth the bother to be honest. I need a dark lipstick y'all.
Makeup is too hard.
