For all the forks, spoons and wine glasses that I have left a lipful of my signature Russian Red MAC lipstick on, this is for you.

At 7:58 this morning, the sad remains were found wrapped in a white t-shirt at the bottom of the washing machine. Distress ‘knocks’ were heard late last night but were ignored. An investigation has been opened into its death, though the circumstances  are not said to be suspicious.

Russian Red will be remembered by the once very white t-shirt, now stained red with your presence, and the kisses on my mirror.
