Well, creating extends to person style or self expression of the self. Which extends itself to expressing your love and hey who doesn't want express themselves with a very special kiss on Valentines Day? We all say, Me! Me! Me!

When it comes to personal style and Valentine's day, isn't a bold red lip classic and sexy? To prep for this post, I sampled over 10+ different lip stains across low to high brands. Revlon, E.L.F., Sephora, Benefit, L'oreal, NYX, Stila and Josie Marin were just a few sampled. I looked at reviews across retailers and consulted with make-up artists. I was looking for the right texture, moisture, longevity and color. I also kissed a few gentlemen. Hey, it was a tough job but someone had to do it. Insert flirty wink here.

Anyway, there was one clear winner. Don't hate me when I tell you it as the YSL ROURGE PUR COUTURE VERNIS À LÈVRES POP WATER glossy stain 201 in Dewy Red.I'm telling you I am not a fancy pants girl. I prefer cheap lip balm but if I was going to be kissing my Valentine this YSL gloss stain couldn't be beat. It was moisturizing, long wearing and the color was perfect.
