TATA - written behind most trucks in India.
From the time I was a kid until last year, I thought.... can you not look at me when I say this?...that...that it meant "Ta Ta. Bye Bye"!
You know, like "Blow Horn" or "Use Dipper At Night" or "Have A Nice Day". I even saw "Please Keep Distense" not too long ago (I almost posted the pic on my Instagram and was gonna caption it: "...Or you'll be sintensed to death." I'd deleted the pic from my phone, otherwise I would've sneaked it into this post.)
So...where was I?...so I just assumed TATA meant 'Bye Bye'. I also remember that as a little girl I'd mentally wave when I saw it.
Sometime last year, while in the car, Mr.CZ and I were discussing cars (Yes, we've been together a long time.) and he mentioned TATA this, TATA that, TATA owns Jaguar. Suddenly....sudden-effin-ly-a-little-too-late....the tube light in a very very dusty, cobwebby corner of my head lit up! "Ohhhh....TATA = TATA Motors!!!"
In my brain's defense, I would've added them up a long time ago, but then why would I be thinking about and looking at trucks anymore? I had my life to think about. Also, dem coot buoyz!
Okay, coming to the lipstick......
I always thought this lipstick was called Runaway Hit. Run-away Hit.
It was only until I was at a MAC store that I saw Runway Hit written at the bottom. I have to tell you that I wasn't at all interested in this lippie when it was first launched. Not until I swatched it. Fell in love with it, but it was out of stock. Made me want it even more. I got it only after the 3rd time I'd gone to ask for it!
Described by MAC as a Light Nude Matte. On me, it looks too coral to be labeled a light nude. I'd call it a light coral.
~ The color. This is the lipstick shade I would want to be buried in.
~ The super matte formula makes it last a long long time.
~ This kind of shade is hard to find in a very matte formula, so that is its USP for me.
~ It lacks the same opacity as all the other Retro Matte Lipsticks I own, probably because it's the lightest shade of all. So I need to apply it in layers so it covers my lips fully. You can check out the others- All Fired Up, Relentlessly Red, Flat Out Fabulous, Ruby Woo.
~ It emphasizes lip lines & chapped lips. Even if you don't have chapped lips, this could make it look like you do. Again, because it's a light shade.
In the LOTD pics, I'm wearing it on my eyes & as a blush on my cheeks as well....
Yes, my hair is short now. Better pics of it next time!
I applied the lipstick on the inner 1/3rd of my lids. I'd posted a EOTD HERE
In spite of its flaws, I will always want to wear this lipstick. Runway Hit is a Reallife Hit.
My Rating: 3.5/5
Before I go, I just want to ask a quick Q regarding Runway Hit.....
Does it mean that it's a hit - loved - on the fashion runway or......does it mean when a plane hits the runway when it lands?
Don't answer that!
Thanks for reading all this....
