Bonjour à tous! Merci de m’avoir rejoint aujourd’hui.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately, but before I begin I must apologise for activity or lack there of, over the last few months. I’ve had a few personal obstacles to overcome and wanted to introduce something new and fun to the site: Word of the Day!
It is something quick, easy, and simple that will hopefully aid in your acquisition of the language and expand your vocabulary. For today we’ll keep it simple.
Today’s word of the day is rouge à lèvres. If you don’t know what that words means attempt to translate it literally; deconstruct the word.
This word/phrase translates to “red of lips” in English, or essentially tinting of lips in other words lipstick.
The reason I chose this as the word of the day is because someone at work asked me what the term rouge à lèvres meant on the packaging of her YSL lipstick.
