Back I high school, I was seeing this white guy named Charles. One day he looked at me and said, “You have such beautiful lips. Have you thought about trying some red lipstick to accentuate them?” I looked him life he was crazy because 1) back in the day, I never wore makeup 2) I thought my lips were way too big to even think about trying lipstick, much less red and 3) really, what did he know?
Today I went to Macys to use a 25$ gift card my dad gave me. Someone gave it to him at work and he said that he wasn’t going to use it. I wandered around for a bit before found myself and the Mac makeup counter. As I stared at the lipsticks that story came to mind and I figured I’d try on something red. Just for fun. The first reddish shade I tried on was Ruby Woo and was pleasantly surprised. It looked great. A few people walked by and complimented me. That was it. I knew that I had to take it home with me.
Turns out, Charles knew what he was talking about after all.
