I'm so upset. Why me?
This is about a mishap with my Creme Cup lipstick. This has happened before with one of my other Mac lipsticks (the beloved Hue). And of course, other things like dropping one of my favorite blushes and it's all broken into pieces. Grr. It happens to the best of us, right?
Creme Cup is one of my favorite colors. I just don't wear it as often now because it's difficult to apply (you'll see). It's a muted baby pink color, by the way. Natural looking; not "in-your-face" baby pink lips. I wore it on Halloween night.
Two pieces of advice I can give so that you can avoid this from happening to you:
1) Do Not store your prized lipstick in your bra while out at the clubs. I don't know about you, but I find it such a pain if I bring a clutch out with me. It makes dancing a little awkward if I have to hold onto a purse. Anyway, my lipstick was warm from the heat I was generating while it was stashed in my bra. And whenI applied it, it smooshed and bent.
2) Do Not twist the lipstick all the way up to put it on. Especially if you're in the sort of state in which you're unable to judge how much strength to utilize as you apply the lipstick. If you know what I mean.
Next time I think I'll just stick to lipgloss if I go out. Not as fragile.
The pictures below are quite frightening, so be warned! This incident happened on a night out with the girls (possibly a tad bit inebriated). I also swatched the color for you.
