Optimized-red lips post cover

As I’ve written before, red lips are something that I think everyone should at least try once.

For about 3 months I’ve had the MAC Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Cream. When my mother bought it for me, I was very skeptical to see if it would actually work, or even do anything at all. However, I am always ready to try something new, so I decided to give it a chance.
