i am extremely pale with rosy cheeks, and pink/cool undertones. i've tried all kinds of red lipsticks, and am currently looking for the absolute brightest blue-based satin or matte red on the market. any suggestions? i've worn many reds, and find that shades like nars's red lizard, while flattering in undertone, are too dark and make my lips look smaller than they are, and that colors like mufe's moulin rouge are nice and bright but a little too orange for my skintone. i don't want to use a gloss to make my lips look bigger (it doesn't look good on me), so please help me find that perfect superbright cool red (but not too cool, i don't want magenta lips). i was even considering mac's ruby woo, but it seems to be a bit too dark for me (yes, i am THAT PALE lol). thanks!
I want to try pink lipstick but can't find one I like or that I feel would look good. I really don't care for hot pink lipsticks so more natural or lighter pinks would be better suggestions. I'm very fair with cool undertones, so fair to the point that I will burn in the sun. No tanning, just burning! I like(d) YSL ROUGE VOLUPTÉ in Lingerie Pink #7 but the dupes I got didn't look so great. Any one have a suggestion for not-crazy-pinks? Especially OCC Lip Tar shades. I like Digitalis, Ophelia and Hush but I'm super worried they won't look good (especially Ophelia). Help is great. Thanks.
Does anyone have a suggestion for a clear lip liner? I love bright/ bold lipstick & want a clear liner so it won't change the color & so I don't have to worry about finding a close match for the more vibrant colors. I found one from Maybelline but I feel like it is too waxy/hard and doesn't help lipstick last any longer. Any ideas? Thanks!
Hi! I'm looking at the stil after glow lip color and I'm not sure what color would be best for me (even though I like wearing lipsticks I've gotten the best lipcolor for me from just sheer luck!) This would be new territory for me since I've never tried glowing lip sticks (I mean, just as long as their not bad for you when you're eating or licking your lips you know?); also I've never tried a violet, electric pink, or any kind of orange color (the only type of fuisha I've tried is from the Sephora Collection lipsticks in Valentine which I like) Oh and if it helps I have dark brown hair and eyes; and again just as long as this is the type of lip color that I can wear rather than it wearing me xD I hope that's enough info! Thank you so much!
Hello, everyone! I need some help identifying a lipstick. I got a (free, unasked-for) sample in a Sephora in JC Penney about three weeks ago, and I ended up loving it. Unfortunately, the name was written in dry erase marker, not permanent, and it rubbed off by the time I got it out of my purse, so I do not remember what it was called. I believe it started with a hard letter, like a T or P or V or R, not any S or vowels. I don't know how much help that is! I think the saleslady told me it was Nars, and I have a semi-matte nude from them which feels pretty much identical, so I'm relatively sure it is a Nars lipstick. Starting from there, it's brown, sort of chocolatey - I've never had a brown lipstick before, so I can't give any comparisons, but it's not shimmery or sparkly or reflective or metallic. I'm leaning towards thinking it's a semi-matte or matte, like my other Nars lipstick, but I've never used Nars sheer formula (since if I want sheer, I grab gloss) so I can't rule that out. It seems to have a sort of red/pink undertone, where if you put it on very lightly, it looks less brown and more nude. Any help? I've looked at the Nars colors online, of course, but none of the color blocks look at all like it, and I can't compare the lipstick-tube pictures, because I only got a slice of the actual color and it was a much smaller amount, so it's hard to compare. Add in the fact that colors online are never 100% true-to-life, and I figured I'd better ask. I'm looking to order online, but I can go to a store in about two weeks, too. If I brought in what remained of the sample, would any associate be able to help me find it? Or would I be better off hunting down online swatches of the Nars line and seeing if I can identify it from there? EDIT: Okay, so here are some pictures. Applied with a brush over UD clear lip liner. This is Nars Dolce Vita on me, one coat: My unknown shade, one coat: Dolce Vita, two coats (it gets pinker on me the more I put on): And the unknown, two coats (gets browner):
Looking for a lipstick to meet my following desires: -Orange/red color (warm undertone skin) -Long wearing (this is a must!) -Doesn't have a "gritty" feel after a couple of hours -No glitter, sheen, or hint of sparkle Hope someone can save the day!
Ok, so there's acne treatment and various things to treat pimple on the face. If it's drying or harsh, no big deal. But I've got a tiny red bump on the lip that hurts every time I touch it and it's a problem when I eat. Moreover, I JUST manage to recover my lips from it's previous dry/itchy/flaky condition, so....... Have you ever gotten pimples on your lips? how do you deal with that? Thanks.
For a long time, I've been looking for a great true red lipstick. I have olive skin though, and finding a good shade has been hard. I like the look that Rashida Jones does sometimes -- minimal makeup with bright red lips. I've found a couple where the color was okay (one Nars, one Stila), but nothing stays on my lips for long. I rarely bother wearing lipstick for that reason. Does anyone know of a lipstick (or stain) that would be good for olive skin but would last through meals, drinks, etc?? Thanks for any suggestions!!
Hi guys! I'm looking around on Sephora for something to put on my mental wishlist, and a main topic for me is blue lip gloss. Not actual opaque blue gloss, but sheer blues that make your teeth look whiter. I've only found the tokidoki gloss in Ninja Dog and the California Kissin' Lip Shine by Benefit. Has anyone else found anything yet?
Im looking for a nude + pink matte lip color that is long lasting. I have fair skin and i prefer the look of nude lips. I need a product that will last the whole day, i love the color that piper perabo wears in Covert Affairs (character name 'annie walker') so if you know a similar color let me know! Thanks
I have fair pink-ish skin, blue eyes, and blonde hair. I am looking for a lipstick to wear for everyday and also a bold one. I have a fuschia one and I love the way it looks on me but I don't like to wear it that often.I really like matte lipsticks as well. Any recommendations for what lipsticks would go with my skin tone and everything? Thanks!
Does anyone have a favorite lip balm that is NOT glossy, almost "not there," and smooth enough to wear under lipstick? This freezing weather has been chapping my lips and making my lips look like crumbled parchment paper under my lip products.
Has Urban Decay discontinued their lipstick line? No sign of it on sephora.com, and on UD's website they're on sale for $3, but the only one still in stock is Oil Slick. This was my favourite lipstick, it was so smooth to glide on! Anyone have a suggestion for a good replacement?
Hey Everyone. I recently purchased the Hourglass Opaque Rouge in "Icon." I'm very fair skinned and this is an incredibly bold color. As a result, any imperfections in application are incredibly noticeable. With the rather clumsy doe foot applicator (IMHO... I like YSL's glossy stain applicator WAY more), I'm having a heck of a time getting a neat, even lip shape before the product dries. Do any of you fab ladies and gents have any suggestions about how to get a flawless lip shape and outline with this product? It's so frustrating... I love the color so much, but I always end up looking a bit like Leigh Bowery when I try to wear it.
I've been wanting to get my hands on these for awhile but no sephora in my area carries them so I am just going to order online. The color that appeals to me most is #5 Rouge Vintage. I'm looking for an mlbb "my lips but better" shade, and from seeing swatches online this seems to fit the bill. However I'm afraid of how it will look on me. I have very fair skin with pink undertones and dark brown hair/eyes also very pale lips. I'm planning to use this color for the staining properties and not for the full on heavy gloss look. Has anyone ever tried this color? If so, how long does the stain last and did it turn a weird shade. Is it warm or cool toned? Any other color suggestions are greatly appreciated! PS: I don't like corals or bright pink colors because they look funny on me.
I love wearing the benefit cha cha tint on my lips but i dont like the application. Does anyone know of a similar color in a lipstick?This is my favorite color ever but not easy to use on the go without a mirror. Thanks!
I have pretty fair skin, and just started wearing lipstick on a pretty regular basis about six months ago. I absolutely cannot find a lip color that doesn't require what feels like constant re-applying. I always end up discouraged and going on the rest of my day without it once the color and lipstick in general has just completely worn off. I've heard through the grapevine that OCC's Lip Tar could solve all my problems. Could any of you confirm or deny this for me, please?
