Changing lipstick colours
We're not all softwood lumber and high seas trawling here at RTK. Tonight's post is lipstick.
Yesterday Tearfree bought herself a tube of Mac Captive for the first time since she gave it up 18 months ago. She originally renounced Captive because she realized she'd been wearing it for 10 years and she feels it's important to change your main lipstick colour every two or three years.
Tearfree's mainstay lipstick since giving up Captive has been Tulip by Bobbi Brown, which she really likes but is too summery for fall and winter.
Now Tearfree has fairly white skin and she needs pink and red tones in her lipsticks. She can't do browns and beiges. Anything too purple brings out the dark circles under her eyes. And if it's too sheer or minimalist, she might as well be wearing nothing, which makes her feel nude.
Can anyone suggest a good new lipstick for Tearfree. Or is it okay to wear the same lipstick colour for 12 years (or forever like Paloma Picasso?) Presumably they wouldn't still be selling Captive if it weren't a great colour
