I'm extremely particular when it comes to lips. While I was a competitive dancer, I used to envy those who did not have to wear Mac "Ruby Woo" every Saturday and/or Sunday. No offense to Ruby..but it gets old. The idea of being able to wear nude lips was the ultimate goal. TBH I started wearing a different shade of red that last year of dance (I don't think anyone noticed.)
Now my lipsticks consist of dark berries and nudes - all shades. This lack of color is my newest favorite.
