...Apparantly I am part of a dying breed. According to statistics (where do they get those from anyway?), the average woman has 17 lipglosses for every lipstick she has. 1 lipgloss is sold every 6 seconds in the UK as opposed to lipstick (1 every 2 minutes!). For me the Idea of twisting my lippy up the tube and smearing it on whilst looking into my little compact is the epitome of 'Grown-up Womanly-ness' (Yes that is a word!) I'm sure nearly every girl pretended to do that at some stage... which brings me to this;
The Estee lauder lucidity compact.
This is the true reason I own a really posh expensice lipstick (the YSL rouge volupte) so I can whip this little beauty out and touch up my lippy while gazing into it... (for real!!!)
This was the first thing I bought wh I started getting into 'proper' makeup. My first true investment. And I will carry it with pride and delight. I feel like such a lady when I use it and dab on a bit of red.
