Lipstick Madonna Should Have Worn to Kiss Drake

Pretty much everyone plugged into pop culture has seen or at least heard about the infamous surprise kiss Madonna planted on rapper Drake last week at the Coachella music fest in the California desert.


A lot of fuss has been made about the Material girl's age, but she's still fab at 56. Although we don't think the 28-year-old hip-hop heartthrob was necessarily grossed out because of Madonna's, um, maturity, the way Drake was seated when the kiss happened was super awkward (see above gif image). And that could have caused him to nearly lose his lunch. Drake, on the other hand, says he wasn't turned off by the lip lock. Instead, he blames the taste of Madonna's lipstick for his less than flattering reaction.

We guess her lip gloss wasn't poppin'.

So you don't make the same faux pas, here are Everything She Wants' picks for spring lipsticks that won't make Drake, or any other guy, gag.

NARS Audacious Lipstick ($32 in the red hot shade, Carmen.

Before you pucker up, apply SheaMoisture Lip Exfoliator ($7.99), made with a combination of apricot seeds and sugar to help exfoliate the lips and remove dead skin. Then coat your pout with SheaMositure's paraben-and-talc-free, luscious Lipstick Crayon ($9.99).

Laura Geller Love Me Dew Moisturizing Lip Crayon Trio ($25) come in vibrant colors infused with hydrating vitamin E for soft, kissable lips.

Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss ($22) is our go-to for a natural-looking lip.  The 29 sheer shades are loaded with vitamin E, Shea butter and jojoba seed oil to soothe and keep lips smooth.

We've recently become a super-fan of NARS cosmetics and the luxe brand's Audacious Lipstick ($32) provides dramatic, creamy and long-lasting coverage.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and
