Red Lipstick Dare

Do you remember Sassy magazine? Well, Jane Pratt is back with an online magazine/site called XOJane.  I love this site.  It’s self-referential, self-indulgent, totally meta, sometimes annoying, but overall awesome. The writers are women of various ages and experiences, and I can always be certain that I’ll find something interesting and/or hysterical.

See, for example, the Raccoon Home Invasion story.  Really, go.  I’ll wait.

See, wasn’t that awesome?

Hmm, I thought, maybe I should go for it.  So yesterday, I stopped at CVS and bought a tube of Maybelline Red Revival, recommended by the author.

So here I am:
