Mad Men Lips That Last

I think I’ve made it clear that I’m way into Mad Men style (as is Anne), but I’d also like to say that I covet the ladies-of-the-60s beauty looks, as well. In particular, I want their bright, perfect pouts. It’s no secret that bold lips are in… but they’re tricky. You leave your bathroom mirror looking like Katy Perry, but by the end of the day your lips are faded and dull at best -- smeared and sloppy at worst.

Not so with the new Double Wear Stay-in-Place lipstick from Estée Lauder ($22). I wore “Stay Ginger” (which is like a Peggy color, for you Mad Man fans) to a wedding on Saturday, and despite all the dancing and carousing, it was still lovely when I checked it after six hours. In fact, it promises to work up to twelve.

If I’m in a Betty mood -- sweet and demure -- I’ll go with Stay Pink. For the Joans out there -- bold and badass -- try Stay Scarlet. And if you don't watch the show, see the ladies I'm talking about here. Then get yourself this lipstick and stay out until curfew without reapplying once.
