I don’t know how it started, but I know it just won’t quit.  If I had to guess, I’d say it happened in middle school, though it may have even been on the tale end of elementary school.  How was I to know that all these years later the habit would persist?

Like many, many people — women and men alike — I am dependent on lip moisturizer.  It used to be a fun accessory.  Lipsmackers made them in all different “flavors.” Pink lemonade, root beer, vanilla, how could I resist?  It got to the point that my jeans would be worn out in my pockets in the exact shape of my chapstick.  I would never know the meaning of chapped  or dry lips.

As I got older and more into make up, I started to buy lip stick.  But I could never keep a color on my lips very long.  I would fidget or chew on my lip or eat or something and the color would be gone.  No matter how hard cosmetic companies try, lip stick will never be as moisturizing as lip gloss.  So I tried lip stick with lip gloss on top, which at least gives me the moisture that I need, but the color still doesn’t last.

So I typically stick with the gloss, but it’s gotten a little more sophisticated.  Some of my tubes are tinted and most of them are Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush (my current favorite).  But there are times that you just need to have some color.  Case in point. I’ve had to make two TV appearances for my company recently and watching the tape back, I really needed some color.  Lesson learned.  I went over to Sephora and picked up a plum shade from Clinique.  Since it is better quality, my hope is it will stay on better, when I need it.  But we’ll see.   I imagine I will still have a tube of gloss in my car, by my bed, in my desk drawer, and in my purse for the rest of my life.  Can’t kick the habit!

Anyone got any good products they are using?
