I'm fascinated with Old Hollywood glamour. And red hot lipstick comes with that territory, I think. There's just this glam feeling that's evoked with applying lipstick and lipliner that you just don't get with lipgloss.
I've always been too chicken to try it, much less wear it out in public. But there's nothing like a big change in your status quo that will make you be more open to trying something new.
