Lipcolour Tales



       Okay, don't worry, I'm not really going to tell you a big boring tale. I rarely use make-up, but I firmly believe that by the a girl turns 20, she should have found The perfect lipstick shade!Its my own theory, in case you wondered where I read it.
I'm a couple of years late, but better late then never, eh?

      Its been a long, winding road to finding this colour. I tried all kinds of reds before, and a friend actually asked me if I had just eaten an Ice Lolly. Here in my country, we have ice lollies called 'gola' in various gaudy hues that colour your mouth up temporarily!



       So anyway, this is an amazing pinkish-red shade that I found. And a very critical friend of mine approved of it too, so I'm pretty sure it's THE one for me! Oh the happiness!











      Oh by the way, Its from Colorbar, and cost me a meagre Rs 195/-! And though it not even remotely brick-red-ish, it is called 'Brick-O-La' for some inconceivable reason. Do I care?

      I'm taking a brief blogging break, because I am travelling to the United States! So come next week, I'll be your faithful correspondent from the second fashion capital of the world, NYC!  Hope the freezing weather permits this Mumbai(Read: A Hot, humid, blissfully sunny city) Girl to click pictures!

Love,
Shubhi!
