Q. Please suggest a l/s color from Sephoraa's Rouge Creme
Hi, can anyone suggest a color for someone who is never happy with the lippies I buy!!! I have fair/light skin, medium brown eyes and warm med brown hair. I like the creaminess of sephoras rouge creme lipsticks. I bought courtisane, tried it, hated it and returned it. HELP!! I like dark pinks, looking for a semi-bold red, plums, any cool medium to dark pinks,plums,reds and berry. I heard valentine and decolette are pretty. Any advice would be appreciated!! Thanks

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!

Q. Lip Questions
i noticed in the tutorials that the models had lovely pink lips, even at the start of the demo. My lips, on the other hand, are quite blue. This skews the colors of lipsticks and especially of glosses. Doe anyone else have this problem, and if so, have you been able to "correct' it?

Q. How do you fix peeling/cracking lips?
My lips peel and crack when I wear lipstick (even the expensive kinds). It makes it hard for color to stay on evenly. Is there any products that may reduce that? I wear EOS chapstick to try to even out my lips but it doesn't work well.

Q. Lip liner for Poe by Kat Von D?
Since none of the Sephoras have this lipstick in stock where I live, I have resorted to ordering it online! I have read from reviews that since there is sparkle in the lipstick that when you apply it on your lips the edges can look rough.  Does anybody know of a blue (preferably) or black lip liner that I could wear with this lipstick?  Thanks!

Q. A good lip liner for Kat Von D's studded kiss homegirl?

Q. Lip Wrinkles =/
Hey Guys,    I have a question on lip wrinkles. I'm a 22 year old with lip wrinkles - not wrinkles around my mouth but actually on my lips =/ I love the look of matte lipstick but they are typically incredibly drying and only magnify the look the terrible vertical lines. Therefore, I'm on the hunt for something moisturizing and hydrating to combat my lip wrinkles. Any suggestions are welcome (and please don't shy away from drug store brands either). I am open to trying any sort of product that has worked for someone.   Also I was wondering if there are any differences between Korres Lip Butter and Korres Lip Butter Glaze. Those are some products I was looking into and I wanted to know if there was anything different between them, aside from the method of application.   Thanks!

Q. Painful pimple on lips, how do you deal with that?
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.

When I apply lipgloss or lipstick, it tends to not last throughout the day.  Is there something people apply before you put on your lip gloss to make it last all day?  Do you apply concealer or lip primer or something?  Can you apply regular concealer to your lips and then apply the gloss?
