What defining moment transforms a girl into a woman?
I would argue: The day you switch from gloss to stick.
I am twenty four years old and just purchased my first tube of lipstick. Yes, my mom has encouraged me to wear color on my lips for years now but I’ve always been a gloss girl. I think I was afraid colorful lips were too much of a contrast with my pale skin. It wasn’t until I saw a few other fair skinned beauties pull this look off, that I worked up enough courage to step up to the MAC counter and let the cute pony tailed man do his thing. I decided to jump on the hot pink bandwagon and went with the color: Show Orchid. Honestly, I couldn't be happier with this purchase and I truly feel more grown up.
Perhaps a real woman? I now carry lipstick in my purse!!
