Ta-DA! Day Two of #30DaysofLips continues!
Mondays, for me, usually call for a softer that’s also not afraid to take charge. Something that perks you up in the morning, but isn’t so aggressive it feels like someone has a neon arrow blinking toward your mouth that screams, “LIPSTICK!” You want it to condition because no one wants to start the week off grappling with dry lips, but it can’t slide off your mouth in one sitting.
In other words, Monday is demanding, and your lipstick needs to show up ready to work, just like you.
This new Aveda lipstick is one of my absolute favorites. It’s a sheer hue that goes on with just the right amount of raisin-influenced color but it’s not Goth-y or dark. It ripens to a soft berry hue that can last all day. This photo was shot later in the afternoon. I’ve had this lipstick on since 9 am and it not only made it through me grinding my mouth in protest to a stupid busy schedule, but it made it through lunch. Spaghetti squash with olive oil and pecorino romano, no less. Thank goodness it has a touch of breath freshener. I mean, I threw in some gum, but still….you never know.
Anyway, if it can make it through lip pursing, olive oil and me throwing my face into a bowl at lunch in a five-minutes-to-eat manic state, it’s officially Monday approved. This one is more than up to the task.
Aveda Nourish-Mint Sheer Mineral Lip Color retails for $16 and is available at lovely Aveda boutiques near you.
