Lipstick Memories

How can a lipstick represent so much? One little tube of lip colour can hold hundreds of memories, I’m sure you have lipsticks that remind you of certain occasions when you wear them.

For me, Rimmel Shake Up Pink reminds me of graduation and of the last 2 days of my university experience. Those last two days were a whirlwind of emotions, happiness that I’d actually achieved something with my life and with a good grade too, regret – maybe if I’d tried a bit harder in the second year I would have got an even better degree classification, but most of all sadness. Those last two days were filled with sadness, I did not want to leave Preston and I especially did not want to leave Vicki (my best friend/ other half – not in the lesbian way though), without Vicki I am incomplete and even though it’s been 2 years since I graduated I still feel like there is a part of me missing; the person that I am at the moment isn’t a whole person except for the one weekend a month that I get to see her.

So whenever I wear that lipstick I get all nostalgic, it reminds me of the heart wrench it was to leave Preston on that Saturday in July and know that I wouldn’t be returning in a few months to be reunited with my best friend. That day I think my heart was broken, I cried all the way home and I don’t think I’ve fully recovered even now.

Sorry to get all emotional on you guys but I wore that lipstick yesterday and was flooded with that same sadness that I felt two years ago.

On a lighter note, Barry M Pillar Box Red Lip Paint reminds me of pretty much every night out I went on in 2008/9 – good memories : )


Do you have a lipstick (or any other make-up product) that reminds you of a certain time of your life?

P.S The lipstick in the picture isn’t even the one in question lol, but I think that photo is humorous!

  3. That is so sweet. I didn't start wearing lipstick until just 2 years ago but I have chapstick memories. :) lol. Bubblegum scent chappy use to be my signature thing back in highschool. I first kissed the man that is now my hubby wearing it.

  5. I finish in four weeks and know I'm gonna feel like this too. I have my Hanna who is literally my other half and am dreading saying goodbye as she lives in Cornwall so I won't really see her much.
