Another Lipstick Sacrifice (warning: this contains images of children and crimes against makeup)
This picture remind me of a rhyme that Mum used to tell me. 'There once was a girl, who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead...'. I'm sure you know how the rest goes! Miss MB has grown up with me writing this blog and she's very keen to join in these days. When the postman rings the doorbell she rushes to the door and shouts "present, present" at anything that vaguely looks like a parcel. There's no way that I can get away with smuggling the parcels upstairs to open later, as I once did. She wants IN!
I still enjoy taking pictures of new products in a pristine state and this incident happened as a result of my Ilia lipsticks arriving. She started opening them up and I could see disaster ahead. So, one of my other lipsticks had to take one for the team. Her application technique needs some......refining. I loved the fact that she started applying it to her hands, once she'd finished her face!
Fortunately the lipstick has survived to tell the tale. Though something tells me I might need to invest in some lockable drawers.
