Fingerprints. This is why I hate gold packaging
It seems like it's been awhile since our last red-red feature, so I pulled out all the stops for today. I've been saving Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Ultra #190 for when I really need drama, because it's just so unabashedly loud. Why do I think so? Is it the blueness? Or that tinge of berry? For some reason, this lipstick screams "I'm red! I'm red!" at you (I don't know if I make sense here. Undoubtedly all red lipsticks are striking, but some are more so than others, you know?). The only equivalent I could think of is Guerlain Rouge G Garconne, which leans warm when compared to Ultra.

By the way, I had my first post-chop trim today. I showed my hair stylist a photo of Faye Wong circa Chungking Express and I promise you, he was beside himself with glee. Even with what little hair left on my head the floor around me looked like a fuzzy carpet. My hair – it is so so so short now, but I love it. Do you see how much makeup I can put on and still look underdone?
Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Ultra #190 retails for $30 and is exclusively available at Saks Fifth Avenue.
