Don’t Mess with the Juicy Technique

My glam friend T sauntered into the office today and gave me a throaty “hello, dawling.”  I looked up from the monotony of whatever I was working on to find perfect pink lips.   It’s all I could see.  They were bright, but not too bright.  Glossy, but not high-beam glossy.
