I look best with pink glosses. I'll just stick with those.


I normally stick to light gloss: pink, nude, etc. But I do have a lipstick by Mary Kay in Maple that I like wearing every so often.

It's been years since I've tried a red lip. As the holidays approach I may boldy step out of my comfort zone and give it a shot.


I love reds!
