Who says red lipstick is a no-no for women older than 59?

Posted on December 11, 2012 

Yahoo says there's a story trending that made my blood pressure rise!

It said a British beauty product company called Nurture Replenish Skincare did a poll of 2,000 women who are older than 45. The company asked at what age women should stop wearing red lipstick, short skirts, high heels and getting tattoos.

I'm sorry, but at age 60, I am not giving up red lipstick or short skirts. I admittedly don't wear high heels all that often, but I do have a pair of high-heeled boots that I love. In fact, I'm wearing them right now, with a dress that is several inches above my knees.

And until I ate lunch, I was wearing red lipstick. OK, not technically red, but pretty bright.

So there.
