Lipstick Lowdown #1

It's November 4th! Do you know what that means?!? It's exactly five months to the day of the release of The Lipstick Laws, due out on April 4th! Woohoo! To help me count down and celebrate all things lipsticky, I've decided to do a recurring Lipstick Lowdown post on the 4th of every month up until my book hits the shelves.

What's Lipstick Lowdown, you ask? It's a quick post with a random tip, an interesting fact, fun quote, or some other lipstick-related info that may come in handy if you ever want to impress anyone with your remarkable lipstick knowledge... which, come to think of it, isn't super likely...but just humor me here.

Did you know...

You can expect to get around 5 hours of color from one application of long-wear lipstick before having to reapply.

You should get a total of 1,325 hours per long-wear lipstick tube.


If you wear lipstick regularly, your long-wear tube should last six months to a year.

**These facts/stats were paraphrased from the book Lipstick: A Celebration of the World's Favorite Cosmetic by Jessica Pallingston***

Come back next month for Lipstick Lowdown #2 where I will be sharing a lipstick recipe!

Where in the world did you get a lipstick recipe? I can't wait to read it and try and make it myself!

this is such a fun idea!

want to know a lipstick random fact about me? I've NEVER owned a tube of lipstick. Which, judging by your numbers here is a good thing because it would last an eternity. I've NEVER worn it. (I once had a mall make-over and the lady applied it, but I wiped it off.)

How exciting only 5 months left! I can't wait to have that gorgeous cover in my bookshelf.
I'm more of a lip gloss girl, but lipstick that lasts 5 hours seems way more convenient. I'll be looking forward to the lipstick recipe next month.

Yay for the countdown!

One of my best friends wears that all day long type of lipstick. She eats and drinks and still has colorful lips!

Not me. I wear tinted gloss which I have to reapply all day long. More useless information for you!

Tess - I know; I forget how soon it will be! Can't wait for your book, too!

Paige - I bought a book on the history of lipstick. Seriously. lol. I thought it would come in handy for these posts...

Terry - I can totally relate to you... I actually don't like to wear lipstick either... shh...don't tell anyone. I'm more of a lip gloss girl.

Adriana - Thank you sooo much! You're too sweet! As for lip gloss, I definitely prefer it over lipstick too!

Meredith - Thanks for the congrats! :)

Julie - I'm with you on the gloss; I don't care how many times I have to reapply it -- i like it much more than lipstick!
