Color Story: Lipstick


Claudia has to look no further than her bathroom vanity for the reminder of how her popular "Lipstick" got its name:


"I have one of those clear box organizers that I keep my lipsticks in. One day, I was looking at all the lipstick that I don't wear," she says. "I found bright fuchsia and a variety of colors that I have not worn for years. Yet I am attached to them and have kept them. Some colors I will wear constantly for a time and never wear again. Other colors seem to be perfect, and I am constantly looking for that same shade in a new brand."


"Lipstick" is available in fingering, sport, worsted, single-ply, silk lace, fingering 55, linen, linen lace and cotton ball.
