Lipstick

LIPSTICK

–noun
a crayon-like oil-based cosmetic used in colouring the lips, usually in a tubular container.






















She made her own
Blending shades of universe
Spices and scents from afar
A kiss from her
Would bind you to her whims
Or freeze your heart in its path
Never mind her eyes
Her lipstick was deadly
Sweet Medusa

Excellent. You just know a kiss from Medusa would have to be deadly. And if you somehow survived her kiss and her glance, her "hairdo" would be sure to get you!

You have blended exotic "shades of universe" -- well done.
