Of all the things I never thought I’d be posting on ErosBlog, lipstick reviews are right up there. But MelbourneHumanFemale’s review of a specific black lipstick includes both a black lipstick mini-manifesto for grownups (amusing) and a pair of pretty pictures. How could I resist?
A quick manifesto on black lipstick: It’s time for it to come back. Wretch it out of the hands of babybats at Flinders Street station.
