The other day I was flicking through a magazine in a waiting room, when I chanced upon an article about lipstick.
There amongst all the regular tips about colours and applications, was a side-bar detailing how the shape of your used lipstick spoke volumes about your personality. The fact that one could be profiled by quirk of makeup application, was a revelation to me.
I started scanning through the possibilities: rounded, flat, sharply angled, curved and concave. Hmmm .... which shape should I be whittling all my lipsticks into? You know ... so that people will get the impression that I am a spirited, kind, inquistive, playful and even-tempered anytime that I whip out my lippy.
Then suddenly the receptionist called my name and I had to leave the magazine. And all the vital information. So regretfully, I remain none the wiser.
However, there is one thing I can be certain of. You'd better hope that your lipstick doesn't look like the one illustrated above. I don't need a magazine to tell me that this indicates a somewhat forgetful mother, prone to leaving things in harm's way.
