I was very pleased with the blue lipstick — Doll by Ka’Oir – that I wore to my designing friend Zang Toi’s Fall/Winter 2014 runway show last month.

Because I was happy with that one, I wasn’t planning on buying another blue lipstick, but I couldn’t resist a deeper shade by Melt Cosmetics, mainly because it was called DGAF. I figured it would go nicely with my favorite IDGAF necklace. I wore both when MrB and I went to In-N-Out Burger on a very rainy day in Los Angeles.  We’ve become addicted to In-N-Out Burger.

I’m wearing a single Cleopatra earring from my collection.

Even closer!

I liked the feel of the lipstick and it lasts a long time, though it does transfer. An In-N-Out burger probably isn’t a fair test; even my favorite, long-wearing red — Lasting Lust — might not hold up against that.

A blue lip print on a burger is … unusual.

That said, I also had transfer onto the stick when I had a lollipop later. So, if you try DGAF, be prepared to reapply after eating.

Two nights later, after all the Oscar festivities, we finally caught up with Frozen at the Grove. I switched back to Doll by Ka’Oir for that. The icier look of that lipstick seemed appropriate.

I always say I would see a lot more movies if we lived in L.A. The theaters are pristine!

    Nobody should be allowed to look that good in blue lipstick!
    I love seeing you wear my coat :)

  2. I can’t believe how well you pull off a blue lip, dear Wendy!! With that incredible, fluffy (feathery?!) jacket, those sunnies, and the white boots peeking out from under the hem of your jeans, you have a crazy-good look going on!! I reserve judgment on the burger, though, since I’m a vegetarian!! ;)

      I’m really enjoying the crazy-color lipsticks! The jacket is faux-ostrich-feather. I wore it to an ostrich farm in South Africa last year and posed near the ostriches. LOL.

    Did it in the 80’s. It’s time for repeat. Thanks for the reminders.

    Looks great on you. ;-blue
