Friday nights have evolved for me over the years. When I was single, I positively lived for Friday nights. I would tap my foot, waiting for the clock so I could tear out of work and go meet my girlfriends for drinks. Now, it’s not so much that I’m older and in a relationship as much as I just want a little quiet time on Friday nights. The boyfriend and I make a date, we grab dinner, and then we head indoors to binge watch whatever television show we’re trying to catch up on. So, the high heels have been replaced by cute dresses with sandals, and multiple cab rides have been replaced with a strategic reservation somewhere near one of our two apartments.
And then there are some Friday nights, like tonight, where it’s me curled up with A Big Salad emptying my DVR all by myself. Sometimes you just NEED those Friday nights.
Regardless of what’s going on, I still put on a gorgeous lip color to celebrate the fact that the week is, indeed, over. I love slicking on a good, versatile scarlet hue that feels smooth and rich with a color that can instantly dress up a basic sweater but won’t overpower a t-shirt and jeans.
This L’Oreal Extraordinaire by Colour Riche is my new favorite Friday night “thing:” it goes on smoothly, builds quickly, and it doesn’t slide around on my mouth. I like that it’s not sticky (is there anything worse than a sticky lip product? it’s like having Amusement Park Candy Mouth as an adult,) and I love that it’s packed with little micro-oils to help condition my lips. Because I’m concerned about dry lips, y’all. It’s a thing I fight.
Also, can we talk about the color? It’s a scarlet-pink-glossy-candy situation, and I’m quite mad for it.
So, whether you’re just going to munch on popcorn with Season Two of Orange Is The New Black, you’re headed out to break some hearts, or you just need an excuse to break in a new pair of shoes, throw on this conditioning lip color and up your game. After all, as the company says: you’re worth it.
L’Oreal Extraordinaire by Colour Riche ($9.99) is available nationwide at your local big box retailers and fine online destinations like Drugstore.com.
