Read My Lips

There's something very empowering about red lips and yet it symbolizes femininity at the same time. Beware of the feline who prowls with alluring coolness...she is still a predator at heart.

In the 80's, I was introduced to Revlon's Outrageous Lipcolor 59 Love That Red by Mademoiselle Babette. I was told that it was Paloma Picasso's favourite before she created her own rouge à lèvres, Mon Rouge. Since both are no longer available, I now meticulously paint on M.A.C.'s Ruby Woo.

I love that red so much, I even wear it when I'm two-wheelin' about town. It magically gives me the energy to ride with domineering velocity. Under the experienced recommendation of the guys at the LBS (local bike shop), I stay away from gloss, as all that nature has to spit back at you will inevitably end up on your lips. No worries, why else would they have invented those little mirrors that clip on to your helmet if not for lipstick touch-ups?

Like a bull charging at the muleta, I'm seeing red. Olé!
