Taking a Risk
No, it’s not something cool like swimming some channel. Moving to another country. Joining the military. Becoming a MD saving orphanages of children. Or swimming with sharks.
But I did try a bright, bold lip color in the daytime. That’s worthy of the title, “risky,” right?!
Thanks to my new gal pal at Nordy’s NARS counter, I’m now the proud wearer of the velvet lip pencil in “Red Square” topped with the lipstick “Niagara.” And you know what…it makes me happy. Makes me feel a bit edgy. And it’s getting quite a few looks…
From women, looks of surprise and support. From my husband and son, not so much. In fact, I think my husband responded to my email that the girls had voted I keep it something like: “I really liked you in your “Batman” movies. But really, how much clout can a man who can’t support silver sparkly TOMS have??? And my 19-month old? – keeps smearing it and calling out the word “lollipop.”
But it was a desperate purchase to fill a little void. And it’s working.
So I’m going to keep rockin’ the lip color of the season and call it a risk. Without judgement. Without shame.
