Lancôme Sugared Maple

Although I love lipsticks, I rarely wear them when I go out and about, and almost never for any type of professional event. Typically, when it comes to business affairs, I rely on a simple foundation and some mascara. Last week, while on a very brief business trip to Chicago for a meeting, I indulged a strange whim: Lancôme Sugared Maple. While the color is rich and a bit dark, it is classic and not overtly pert, essentially, just heightening and accentuating the naturally red hue of my lips. I do not want to commit myself to any unrealistic promises and wed myself to a single tube of lipstick for the next number of decades, like the iconic and opulently, beautifully luxurious Sophia Loren, but I can appreciate having a handful of tried and true colors at my disposal.
