Lipstick doh!  
I needed to think 'make up' for my cosplay outfit. The inevitable black eyeliner was easy, I have that. But I also needed red lippy. I found a good one whilst shopping at the weekend and decided to try it yesterday evening to check how it looks.

All well and good, until I tried to remove it again.


Seriously, that's a good thing if you want to wear it for a long time. Not so good when you need to go to bed. My lips were still this colour when I got up this morning. Some hardcore scrubbing was involved.

Bugger I was about to tell you which red lippy I'd gone for when we did moulin rouge, but I have alas given it to my mother, who will put it to more use than I ever will.

I think the one we had was maybelline...*thinks*

did moisturiser on tissue help at all?

(but it looks good fyi)

This is a Max Factor one. I'm quite surprised it looks decent since I don't normally do red.

wow, what brand was that?

Max Factor lip affinity. So it's not a traditional lip stick as such but I always find that stuff stays on better.

Yep, I know the feeling ^^' Once I had to buy red lipstick only to use it once but apparently it was as lasting as yours because it didn't want to wash out till next morning either. Good that I don't need to use it often 0.o.
