Red Lipstick

 I love red lipstick in the summer, but I can't say that I absolutely like it on me. I have to get used to it I think. I've been using the NYX red lip pencil and although the color is pretty vibrant I really like everything else about it. It took a lot of courage for me to even buy red lip stick. I don't exactly have the best lips! What's your favorite lipstick this summer?

In other news, the husby has been begging me to make some chick-fil-a sauce, so I'm going to use this recipe and see how it turns out. Wish me luck! xo


1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon Grey Poupon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon ketchup
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
2 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon concentrated hickory liquid smoke flavoring
1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon water


1. Combine oil, honey, mustard, ketchup, sugar, paprika, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder in a small saucepan over medium heat until boiling.
Stir. Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
Add vinegar, smoke flavoring, and lemon juice.

2. While the sauce cools, vigorously whisk egg yolk with 1 teaspoon water in a medium bowl for about 2 minutes or until color is pale yellow. Whisk in cornstarch until dissolved.

3. Drizzle he cooled sauce mixture into the egg yolk mixture in a steady stream while rapidly whisking. This will create a thick, creamy emulsion that will prevent the oil from separating. Cover the sauce and chill it until it's needed.

Makes about 1 cup.

  1. During the great depression, only 3 things didn't lose sales. Liquor, Tobacco, and Red Lipstick. :)
    My mom has a 100% pure red lipstick called fruit punch, it is my fave and I like to "borrow" it. That and another 100% pure lipstick called Velveteen, it's a dusty rose, or Spanish rose color.
