Q. What lipstick is closest to this color?
While watching the the Olympics last week, I fell in love with this Italian gymnast's lip color. I'm not very makeup savvy, so I need help finding lipsticks that are that color or similar (along with it being matte like hers). Any help is appreciated, because I need to get my hands on this.

Q. My lipstick won't stick to the inside of my lips
My lipstick won't apply towards the center of my lips. Even when my mouth is closed you can see a definite division between where my lipstick applied and where it hasn't. It is a matte lipstick by Nars in Shanghai Express (red). Do you know a good primer that will solve this issue ot any other suggestions?

Q. lipstick help!
I notice that when I put on lipstick the color because more red than the package and that might be because I have naturally redder lips. Is there any way to neutralize it?   Also when I wear liquid lipstick I notice that even if I wait around 5 mins before touching it, it'll come off anything. Any help?

Q. Does anyone know of a lip balm/treatment that works with liquid lipsticks?
Does anyone know of a lip balm/treatment that works with liquid lipsticks? All of the ones I have tried don't work with the liquid lipstick as it makes it transfer, smudge, and become un-matte. I don't really care about the finish but I don't want it to smudge/transfer.   Thanks!!!

Q. Perfect wedding lip color...
I am getting married this winter and being the beauty junkie I am, I am already planning out products for the big day. Much of make up inspiration comes from the perfect sheer berry lip stain worn by Adelaide Kane as Queen Mary in the CW TV show Reign. According to multiple sources the make up artist on the show uses Pixi's (Target) Bitten Berry stain but it is discontinued....  Any suggestions on a sheer, matte magenta/berry toned lip stain for my big day?   Thank you so much for your help!!!!!

Q. Which is the best lip primer that works to prevent feathering?
HI, I recently purchased MACs lip primer which is supposed to keep the lipstick from feathering and make it stay on longer. I have heard that you should let it dry. I have done all that and still it feathers and wont stay on. I heard of Guerlain's Kiss Kiss, but for the money I want to make sure it really works. Which do you love and cannot live without? That works to keep your lipstick and gloss on while preventing feathering?

Q. Lipstick Coverage?
I have a problem. I have a hard time to find lipsticks/glosses that cover the part of the lips where the lips meet (the pout). I find the look horrible if my own lip color shows through only in that spot.   On my youtube channel I've had a lot of comments that state that is what lipsticks are supposed to do so you don't get the color on your teeth. I have never had that problem with my full coverage lip colors.   What do you guys think?

Q. I need help finding a lip color like this one! I love it!
I've been searching for a few years now (honestly), for a lip color like this. It's so pretty yet kind of natural. It just looks like a natural flush color. Not too red or pink, it's perfect. I just can't find anything like it. I'm a light skin tone, if that matters. If you have any ideas, plead let me know.

Q. Drugstore Dupe for MAC Damn Glamorous (or a matte version of NARS Luxembourg)?
I've been looking for a cool-toned pinky-red matte lipstick for a while and came across MAC's Damn Glamorous, which seems like it's what I'm looking for. However, since I don't wear matte lipsticks often, it doesn't make sense for me to drop a lot of money on one, so I was hoping to find a drugstore dupe (that is also matte). For another frame of reference, NARS' satin lipstick in Luxembourg is similar to what I'm looking for as well. Any suggestions?   MAC Damn Glamorous   NARS Luxembourg from Temptalia's site

Q. "The Forgotten": Bobbi Brown lipstick Pink Blossom in CREAMY!
About a year ago or so I went to a Bobbi Brown counter looking for a casual pink lipstick, and they showed me Pink Blossom in cream. It was a slightly purply pink, gorgeous texture and great pigment. I absolutely loved it and bought it. When I got home I pulled it out right away and it was a completely different color, a brighter pink and it was  sheer.    I brought it back to the counter and there was a lot of confusion as apparently there was a 'Pink Blossom' in both creamy  and sheer, and are completely different colors. They didn't have the cream in stock so I checked back whenever I was around the mall for a couple of weeks, and they never got it back in. They said it was probably discontinued even though they kept the tester on the counter. The guy working there very generously sterilized and scooped out the unused part of the tester for me, which I used for a couple of months. Unfortunately, somehow I lost it as it was in a very small sample pot.   Now nobody seems to even ever remember Pink Blossom in creamy ever existing and I can't find anything about it on the web which is really frustrating. I wouldn't normally kick up such a stink about a lipstick, but it really was the most perfect daytime color for my coloring I've ever had and I loved it, and haven't found another color at all similar. I just find it very strange that a company would have no clue about one of its own products. Am I crazy or does anyone else know what I'm talking about?

Q. Dark lips?
I have a some what pale, freckled appearance, but absolutely love dark, vampy lips. I just started playing with darker lip colors and I've found that I absolutely love them. I bought a dark blood red color from NYX that looks amazing, but I'm not fond of the formula.(my favorite lippies are from urban decay, bite beauty, Dior, etc) Are there any lipsticks you would recommend that would carry a similar color (dark blood red), or one you think I might enjoy?

Q. Lipstick recommendations
I've conquered the most difficult lipstick monster, and have already found a red lipstick that I adore. But I'm very into lipsticks, and am looking for more that I can wear on a day to day basis, and more vibrant lipsticks too! My lipsticks are mostly from Mac, but I'm open to most anything, so long as it's reasonably priced (let's say... under 20 bucks). I'll still take Mac suggestions, though! Anyways, I'm looking for a good day color, maybe a pink, coral, anything that you think will suit me best, really. I'm 20 years old and have light skin with neutral undertones (think shade 30 in MUFE Mat Velvet). I have medium brown hair and hazel eyes... which are sometimes brown. So I think that covers all the info needed.... I appreciate the help!
