I've been wearing Tender Heart by Clinique since high school. That was a "few" years ago. It's still the right color for my complexion and after running out of it a while ago, I didn't replace it right away because I had it in gloss, too. Well, the gloss finally ran out so I went and got another stick. I still love the color but something about it was just off. It was too heavy, too ... old? Maybe. It got me to wondering so I grabbed a few other colors at the drug store to see if maybe it was just the formula that had it feeling odd. It wasn't. It's problem seemed to be that it was just lipstick. I've been wearing gloss for who knows how long, really.
Am I just out of practice with the stick or is it just sort of past its time? It seems I've come to prefer wearing a sheer color with sheen over anything matte. I really felt like I was on my way to bridge club, which, hello, I am not. I ended up loving this cranberry color by Maybelline. Great color, soft light red, not heavy and cake-like.
What do you think? Is it over, do you wear stick anymore or are you an all gloss all the time girl? If you DO wear stick, I'd love to know what you're wearing!
