Earlier this summer season, Alex and I went to our pal’s birthday dinner…

…and I swiped on a reddish-pink lip colour that lasted ALL evening. It lasted by means of the cab experience to the restaurant, by means of the Negronis that had been handed to us proper as we walked within the door, by means of the decadent bread basket, by means of humorous conversations, by means of teary toasts, by means of the red-velvet cake, even by means of the cab experience again house. I truly needed to wipe it off earlier than washing my face. 4 hours later!

What’s this holy grail lipstick? The Westman Atelier palette.

The value is splurge-y, however right here’s why I went for it: you get 4 lipsticks in a single — fuchsia, brick pink, tomato pink, dusty rose — they usually’re all beautiful. Since you apply along with your finger (or a brush), you’ll be able to create a wealthy, glamorous look, or you’ll be able to smear on just a bit bit to really feel attractive and pure. I’ve tried a gazillion lip colours, and, to be trustworthy, this one simply makes me really feel so fairly!

What about you? I’d love to listen to what you assume is definitely worth the splurge. And as for a steal, I nonetheless stand by this $6 lip cream.
