Be prepared. You are going to be doing way more smooching than you ever have before in your entire life. I have seen SO much lipstick at weddings–everywhere but where it should be. I even saw a bride kiss her father through her veil–she had a lipstick blotch all through the ceremony. Choose your lipstick wisely. I found some stuff by Avon called Perfect Wear Ever Glaze Lip Ink & Gloss Duo. Actually, I use just the ‘ink’ part. It goes on like water, so you have to wait until it dries. Then you can peck cheeks all day and never lose any of it. Revlon makes one, too, in a whole bunch o’ colors, called Revlon Colorstay Overtime Lipcolor. I haven’t used Revlon’s but the website says you have to take it off with an oil-based remover, so y’all know what that means. ‘Guaranteed to last all day.’ I think the guarantee ends when you eat ice cream like I do. Or when you kiss your boyfriend–like YOU do!
Buy two of your final selection. Murphy€™s Law says that if you buy just one, you will lose it.
HOUSEKEEPING: It’s exTREMEly important that when you fill out the ‘Request For Information’ form on my website that you insert a viable, correct email address, otherwise, I can’t respond email-y. Especially so if you’re writing me from Rio de Janeiro or East Java (you may be assured I won’t be making those kinds of phone calls!). And I’m so, so sorry, but if you’ve submitted a ‘Request’ in the last four months and haven’t gotten a response, that’s because I found out yesterday my online form has been functioning only sporadically. Please try again!!
