Last week I received a package all the way from Holland! It was sent by my sweet friend D. (you can find her at here) She sent me a very unique item, which she had written about on her blog. Thanks again, D!
She sent me an old skool beauty product that is making its way back:
A MOOD lipstick! A green one!
Too Faced Cosmetics, for example, came out with their mood swing lip glosses not too long ago. This mood lipstick I have is a tad different though. Unlike a mood ring (that changes according to your state-of-mind), this lipstick is supposed to change color based on your level of err…let’s call it…excitement? A sheer shade would mean that you’re not in the mood at all, whereas a deep pink would mean you’re ready to do it! (side note: I so hope my mom’s not reading this…)
Anyway, it will come to nobody’s surprise that after I received it, I did some online research on how ‘magic’ lipsticks work. I found this very well-written explanation. Check it out:

That explains it all, right? Right! (just kidding, I still don’t get it!)
Above are some quick pictures of me trying it out for the first time. It’s a long lasting lipstick, but it is a bit drying. I would suggest combining it with a lip gloss / lip plumper (which D. happen to have sent me as well…I’d just forgotten to apply it).
So judging from the photos, can you tell what ‘state’ I was in? LOL!
ps. My mom-in-law is working on her 2nd guest blog! So stay tuned for that!
