|French fashion you can actually afford!|
No amount of makeup will really help, of course, but I have found one new product that I'd recommend even if you're not moving and a total disaster. The new YSL glossy stain is a genius product. I'm a gloss girl, not a lipstick woman, but recently I've discovered that I'm just mouth breathing and eating my gloss off. This fascinating product daubs on like a gloss, but it's thin and intensely pigmented. Do a layer and leave it for moist, juicy lips that happen to be goo free. I even ventured out of my normal neutral comfort zone and purchased a bright red (which of course I try to blot to take down the intensity). This stuff works, lasting much of the day without that dried up haggy feeling lipstick gives one.
I recommend this product, but perhaps not the YSL product counter reps; I had one try to shame me into buying a $200 eye serum for non existent laugh lines. Even my ten year old daughter was appalled ("I see no difference," she said to the rep). It's not cheap at $32, but it should last you all summer and beyond. At Sephora.
