My One True Love

Disclaimer: Sponsored post. See bottom.


My story of true love is a simple love story, really.

It’s more of a childhood crush that evolved into a lifelong love affair than an instant rush of passion.

It’s a relationship – a bond – that started when I was a girl in middle school.

Many of you might think I’m talking about my husband, Mike, or my first boyfriend.

But I’m not.

I stood in the cosmetic aisle of Woolworth’s Five & Dime store in the 1980s, staring at a display of Wet n’ Wild lipsticks. And that’s when I fell in love for the first time.

A light pink lipstick caught my eye, and my mother let me take it home.

It looked horrible on me. It was garish, but I didn’t care. I wore it – but only for play because Mom wouldn’t let me wear it out. I’d wear that lipstick and I would dream about the day that I could wear lipstick like a teenager!

Whether it be a lip balm, gloss, stick or stain, I have not been without a lip product in my purse – or piled in a drawer in my house – since that first Wet n’ Wild lipstick.

Clearly, my true love? Is the lippie. Sorry, husband!!!

Valentine’s Day is a great time of year to explore red and pink lip products and find the one that works best for you! Here are some of my favorites right now! And I’m betting you can find many Valentine’s Day deals lippies!
