December 22, 2015

Laast Christmas! I got me a set, of three Ruby Woo lipsticks, they came in a bag. This year, to save me from tears, I’m gonna write and blog about it!

The trick is to apply with a lip brush, blot, and re-apply a second layer.

This is a lipstick for people who do not shy away from colors.
