From Lips to Growing up!

For years and years now.... I have used lip balm for chapped lips (mine have a brutal tendency to chap) I have tried various brands and found Vaseline and Dermalogic to be the ones best suited to me... Then, I discovered makeup... Nude coloured lipsticks did the trick for me, gave me a hint of colour and shine... and kept the lips protected... Then I realised that makeup extends beyond lipstick, kohl and liner.... I got lip gloss... loved what liquid lipgloss did to the lipstick and I was a life long fan!

Yesterday, when cleaning out my closet, I discovered a gift from a friend... (actually, it was hubby's friend) A pot of solid lip gloss... it has been sitting in my closet for years now, totally neglected. On an impulse, i tried it out... and by jove! it was lip balm, lip colour and gloss... all rolled into one... Why the hell did I not try it before? That planted a thought in me... am I less adventurous now? I am one to try out new things (all the time) be it food, places to visit, things to do.... but off late, I haven't been so... :( Is this what growing up is all about?
