Dear Diary : slowly stepping down the pedestal
To be put on a pedestal is to be worshipped.
To be worshipped typically requires some material attributes like beauty, physicality, talents, good behavior, socially praised achievements.
Why is being on a pedestal a mindfuck?
1. Because it means we can never mess up, which requires a forevermore unattainable levels of perfection (aging is a sin, getting chunky is a not worthy, always being cheerful is how you delight everyone with your spark. Fuck that last one.)
2. Because there’s always a replacement for a queen/king on the pedestal. Because that’s how monarchy works, folks.
3. Because falling off a pedestal you’re surely likely to face plant and that makes getting up and trying again VERY fucking stressful.
So, to conclude: I don’t want to be on anyone’s pedestal. I want to walk hand in hand. Making mistakes. Correcting some of them. Getting wiser with age. Getting that booty fat. Getting crows feet from laughing my ass of for decades.
Take your pedestal and shove it up yours. Let’s get GROUNDED.
the reds collection is here
THE REDS. These are a lip hybrid perfection. Opaque and buildable enough to be a lipstick, glossy enough to be a stain. A light glossy coat or a full color [without running] if you scoop some up with your finger or a spatula. Either way, they are soft, non-sticky and perform all day long.
Treat lips with the moisture of a balm, the coverage of a lipstick, and the glow of a gloss. With shades ranging from subtle to statement, there’s a Lip Boost for every mood. Glam your pout with Gressa Lip Boost. Light, non-sticky and moisturizing, it feels like a balm yet looks like a gloss.
Presented in a black box, this makes a perfect gift for yourself or someone else.
Wear alone or over any lip color of your preference. Double as a blush.
