A love letter to pink lipstick and Smashbox Be Legendary GIFTSTRAVAGANZA Giveaway

Dear Pink Lipstick,

I love you.  I know that you get this a lot.  I don’t mind.  I’m not jealous.  You’ve made the lives of many women significantly more bearable.  It’s okay if you don’t share these feeling for me.  I just wanted to share just a few ways in which you have made me better.

1. When everyone though that red lipstick made women look like harlots, you helped me do bright lip looks without being judged.  Now that it’s once again acceptable to go bright red, I promise I will not forsake you.

2. Anytime I have ever wanted to put on blue eyeshadow and insanely large lashes to pretend that I was a Black Barbie (this was before Nicki Minaj ),  you  were right there to help me complete my look.   You’ve always been so supportive.

3. You are my go to shade when I’m meeting a new future ex’s parents.   For that I am forever in debt to you. I am known to be a bit over the top with my makeup.  That’s just me.  I like being seen.  But on days when I’d like to be a bit demure, you’ve had my back.  I appreciate that.

How do I love thee?  There’s not enough time or space to count all the ways.  But to show my appreciation, I’m giving away a tube of one of my favorite new pinks  –Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in, of course, posy pink.

Love and blessings,

Zakiyyah Walker
