L. Lipstick

Each aisle in the department store lines itself with a new color of the month. Lucy devours each magazine on the latest trends and searches relentlessly for the lipsticks featured. She felt herself drawn back to classic red shades, the smoothness of their shape and the ease of how they emerge when she opens their caps. If only they could stay perfect this way she thinks, then she would have a row of lipsticks continuous in their polished sleekness.
