We’re all for chocolates and roses, but we’d rather get a Valentine’s Day present that lasts longer than a week. Am I right ladies? My ideal gift is a bouquet of new lipsticks. The problem is, you can't really expect your main squeeze to be your lipstick whisperer. Unless he/she is a makeup artist. Then you’ve really hit the jackpot!
My advise? Treat yourself to a romantic lipstick. The question then becomes: Are you team red or team pink? In one corner, we have classic reds found in seductive shades and textures, from graphic and glossy to deep and matte. Over in the pink corner, we have a polychromatic array of hues, from pale and powdery to vivid and varnished. Which side are you playing for? TEAM RED
