So here’s the thing. I didn’t sneak into my mother’s bathroom when I was young to steal her makeup. No no, I made my own. You see, Smarties were my all-time favorite candy at that age, only because of the colors.
Little known fact: if you lick the Smartie and smear it all over your lips, you have the best homemade lipstick ever. I probably found this out at the ripe age of five. I also figured out that the red and blue Smarties were always the best for the ‘look’ I was going for. Smart little girl.
Now, I’ve grown up. I’m older, and, of course, slightly wiser. I no longer smear Smarties on my face. I bake them in cookies for you instead.
