Don't you just hate it when you buy a cosmetic that you think looks great but when you get it home it looks terrible?
If you get a lipstick and you think it looks bad, then try it as a blush. All you have to do is blot a little on the tops of your cheekbones and rub it.
It will give you a pleasant glow and it will stick with you all day. Don't toss valuable cosmetics, just try them in some other place!
