Re: Lipstick Playground

Your skin looks beautiful, and so does your lip!  Palomino is a gorgeous shade, a safe bet when in doubt.

Re: Lipstick Playground

Aww shucks, thanks, Greenchilli! Smiley Very Happy  My goal is to experiment with more bright colors (thinking some of the Kat Von D lippies slated to come out this fall).

Wearing Stila Liquid Lippie in Dolce Smiley Very Happy

Re: Lipstick Playground

This is a bit of an unusual nude shade, I quite like it.

Re: Lipstick Playground

Pretty!

Re: Lipstick Playground

This is gorgeous with your skintone, malday. 

 

In Ulta I mixed this one on my hand with one of the newer shades, Rosa, and I swear it made my perfect nude. I'm kicking around getting both, but I don't think I could pull off either one as a single!

Re: Lipstick Playground

Ooh, I can totally see that combo being a lovely nude! Dolce on it's own is REALLY warm. In fact I thought it was going to be way too warm for me haha.

Re: Lipstick Playground

You sure look good in these warmer shades!

Re: Lipstick Playground

Thanks DiVWA!

Two postings of lip looks in one day! I just got this lipstick so gave it a try. (The GA #400 liquid lipstick looked awful after eating lunch anyway, even though I was careful blotting my lips with my napkin. LOL) This is Nars satin pencil in Jardin des Plantes. The blooming shrub behind me is a very mature Kalmia.

Re: Lipstick Playground

Hey, Good Looking.  This looks great on you.

Re: Lipstick Playground

Very pretty!  I have Jardin De Platis too....the satin lip pencil formula/finish works for me.

Re: Lipstick Playground

Pinkish purples are my favorite on you (even though I love all of them on you).

Re: Lipstick Playground

Wishing these lips automagically become mine.

Re: Lipstick Playground

Hi, lyravega & other purple lipstick lovers!  Maybe you can help me find a purple (or purple-ish) lipstick.  Finding one that's wearable is challenging for me.  I'm pasty white with dirty blonde hair; I draw on my eyebrows using Anastasia Dipbrow in Taupe, and I don't have eyelashes.  No eyelashes means no mascara or eyeliner, so I have nothing to balance a color like purple.  I have NARS Train Blau, which I love; but it just doesn't work because my face looks bottom heavy; there's nothing to balance the color on the top (even though I wear dark purple eye shadow, it's just not enough).  If only it came in a lighter color.  I also have KVD Homegirl (the version before Studded Kiss).  I don't want a pastel or too light of a colors; they usually just blend in with my pasty white complexion.

 

MAC Up the Amp looks really nice.  I'm going to look for swatches of this.

 

I wear a lot of purple/dark purple eye shadow, which is why I want some type of purple lipstick.  If you have other suggestions, I'm open--I'm definitely at a loss for what to do!

Hi Titian!

 

I think you can wear many more sahdes than you realize.  Since you are so fair skinned, many lighter pruples would really compliment you.  Try YSL Volutpe Shine lipstick in "Fuchsia in Rage".  It is a sheerer shade, but it will show up on your light complexion.  The colour has some pink in it too, so really compliments everyone.

 

I really think sheer and light lipstciks will suit you beautifully....
