The old 'red lipstick' debate. Do you or don't you? I do. Doesn't matter if my hair is black (now), purple (last month), blonde (summer) or red. Why do women say it makes them feel clownish? You just have to have a bit of attitude (a - i -yude) to go with it.
This was a market stall item. £1.99? Too tomato to look good with my teeth. I like these matte lippies as I hate splodge and you can always put a spot of gloss in the middle to 'lift' it.But it looks fine if I don't smile. Yellow teeth allegedly need blue-reds to detract from the hideousness.
I can't do pale lips now I'm ageing and fading. I'd just be invisible. Women of my age often claim to be invisible because they perhaps don't attract so much male attention but I've never cared for that so I'm very happy to be free to be increasingly eccentric. That great poem about wearing purple when you get older and spitting. Purple yes. Spitting? Obviously not. Actually most of this has applied to me for years........
