I’m starting to adopt a new ideal: Wait a few weeks after a collection has come out, let the drama and over-analysis die down, then make the purchase! I got Gladiola Lipstick from the Dame Edna Collection on Saturday. I don’t even remember hearing a lot of hoopla about this collection, and I largely overlooked it. But yesterday while at the counter, I swatched the lipstick and flipped out over how fabulous it was! Gladiola is a creamy matte hot pink that would naturally scare anyone away. But it was just too perfect to pass out. Warren and I went to the Estelle and Solange concert in Baltimore, and I opted for a soft matte face to go with my matte lip. Sooner or later, I’ll figure out how to work with these powders and foundations that are full of talc so I can have less ghostly pictures. I swear, my skin was fierce in real life!
