SO EXCITED!! 11/28/14, they are coming out with 50 LE miniature lipsticks, selling at $32 each. I need them all. A snippet from an article about them: " In the Lips & Boys lineup, there are 10 shade ranges, encompassing nude browns, violets and plums, metallics, reds and light pinks. The high-pigment shades are done in a base of soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomile flower oil. Thirty-six offerings are new shades; 10 are from Velvet Suede, Ford’s current seasonal color story, and four are from previous seasons. Ford predicted bestsellers will include Tomas, a coral hue; Matthew, a coral pink; Flynn, a light pink; Giacomo, a deep rose, and Patrick, a muted coral pink. Each clutch-size lipstick will retail for $32. The lipsticks can also be packaged in sets of any three hues in the collection."
Beauties, how Audacious have you gotten? I need to get some of these and am going to swatch tomorrow. If you have Audacious lippies, show us what colors you've picked up, and share what other colors you're still lusting after. Just from looking at swatch sheets last month, (on Temptalia I think) I saw about 15 I wanted How about you? Also, hat tip to jemly for inspiring this thread
Hey loves. So tomorrow I took the day off work to complete all my Christmas shopping....lets be honest i know ill venture into mac and sephora. I've stocked up on so much nude lipstick lately for work that im missing fall/winter lip shades for weekends and days off. For some reason berry tones have been calling my name. I was hoping you guys could help me out. I seem to be drawn to more purple shades but im open to any berry shades. Can any of you suggest favorites of yours or by looking at my profile pic to suggest something that may look good on me. They can be from any brand in Sephora or any Mac lipsticks Thanks dolls . .
Anyone have a suggestion for a duplicate of the lip color "Inspired" that was part of last year's big lip set? It's a slightly purple neutral. I'm too fair for anything too dark but that color was neutral enough for days/work. More purple/cool than UD's Naked for a reference against another one of my staples.
So I got my lips down during a makeover and I kind of liked it. But the two products together are $46. Since I'm trying to be more careful with my spending and since I'm just starting to get into doing my lip makeup I'm deciding to save before I splurge later on. The two products are Bare Minerals Moxie Lipstick in Risk it All and Bare Minerals Moxie Lipgloss in Rebel. I know I might not be able to knock off a lot but if someone knew anything cheaper that would be great. If not I might just splurge.
Happy Monday all! So I'm at my wits end here. I never noticed over time just how small/thin (I'm not even sure what the correct word is) my upper lip is. I noticed most recently when playing w/ lippies and then taking a pic that when I smile my upper lip literally disappears. It looks very odd...I would never had said I had full lips in the past, but I don't recall this. I continue to get frustrated w/ this and just give up w/ a lippie all together. I searched techniques to make my upper lip more pronounced. I've tried applying a bit of concealer/foundation and lining the top, but only a portion of the bottom, but Nada!. Any of my lovely ladies have some tips, or can direct me towards some? I've got so many pretty lippies I want to wear, but as I said it just looks quite odd. Thanx in advance. ~KAM
Does anyone know which brands at Spehora have gluten free lipsticks? I have celiac disease and shoiuld use a gluten free lipstick. I would love to be able to walk into a Sephora location and know which brands I can use and actually see the shades before I purchase. Thanks!
I've always stuck to neutral pink/red or bold red lip shades. I'd really like to experiment a bit more with new colours this fall - darker! More plum/purple/brown tones. But I'm also a little bit nervous. I've got fair skin (cool undertones), brown eyes (pretty dark), and brown hair with quite a bit of red in it (like a dark auburn almost). Any suggestions? I think I'm going to pick up Givenchy Le Rouge in Violine Precieux, although I think that's a fairly safe shade to pick. I've also been eyeing the new Bite shades - but none of the stores near me have them in stock yet has anyone had a chance to swatch them or see what they look like in person?
As requested, here is a mini documentary of my visit to Bite Beauty Lab! The store is located in Soho on Prince St. I arrived early and was able to score a custom color appointment easily; however, customers who arrived after me had to wait anywhere from 30 min to a couple of hours. I would recommend either calling ahead of time or coming early. This is a view of the consultation area. You sit across from a MUA with a spread of colors between you, as well as a clean surface for mixing: The lovely MUA (whose name I forget! I remember that she was from Senegal, that she wore MUD eyemakeup, and that she used to work for OCC, but for the life of me I can not remember her name!) introduced me to the four formulations: Luminous Creme, Matte Creme (?), Sheer Creme (?), and Creme Deluxe. The Luminous Creme is like the Luminous Creme lippies that they sell: satin finish, hydrating. The Matte Creme is supposed to have silica powder which makes it longer lasting. The Sheer Creme is sheer and hydrating, probably like the sheer lippies in their regular line. The Creme Deluxe has more antioxidants and is long lasting due to inclusion of Japanese silk and is therefore more expensive at 48$. The prior 3 are 36$. I decided to get a Creme Deluxe in a classic blue based red and a Luminous Creme in a pinky-peach my-lips-but-better shade. The MUA started mixing shades using a spatula on a clear surface: The first mixture was too bold, the second too purple, and the third was just right. For good measure, I tried a fourth, but settled on the third. With each concoction, the MUA wrote down the proportions of the different ingredients: After settling on both shades, I was asked to choose a scent. There was a scent station with cherry, wildberry, mint, vanilla, mango, citrus mango, and violet scented lipstick bases. I settled on citrus mango: My MUA then pulled all the pigments for my lippies from a wall full of pigments in bon-bon sizes and shapes: She then put them in a cup and added the appropriate lipstick base formulation as well as several drops of the scent I had chosen: After melting the concoction in the microwave, she put the mixture in a centrifuge: She then tested the shade against the shade we had mixed together at the consultation area. One of the shades was slightly off so she added additional pigment and then remelted/centrifuged: Once the shades were perfect, she poured them into lipstick molds: The lipstick molds were set on a cool surface and allowed to solidify. Afterward, she released them from the mold: She then got an empty housing and placed it carefully over the unmolded lippie: Then the lipstick was lidded and boxed: The lipstick was placed in a box and labelled with my chosen lipstick names. It was placed in a plastic bag with a business card (red lip), advertisement card, and personalized lip card with my shade on it and the recipe on the back. I named my two lippies after my two kids: Here is the final result: I enjoyed my experience immensely and have to thank my dear friend Mary for giving me a 100$ gc to Bite Beauty Lab for Christmas. I would highly recommend this experience to those of you who would like to find the absolute perfect shade. The more expensive formulation (deluxe creme) is about the price of a Tom Ford, so probably not worth it unless you have a gc. The others are in the range of a Guerlain or Chanel, so for me, totally worth it, considering you are getting a perfect shade. I would swatch my lippies for you, but my lips are entirely exhausted from trying on so many shades. I hope this helps those of you nearby decide if you want to make the trip to Manhattan, and as for those of you who live far away, consider visiting (and making an appointment!) if you ever visit NYC!
Hello everyone! I am a total lip product junkie who has over 150 products. Recently, it started to give me anxiety to see them and knowing they are not being used enough. It is unreasonable but I feel like I have to finish them all I have so many that I love and using them once in a while is not enough for me to feel like I am giving them enough attention. Do you feel the same way? Do you try to finish up lip products or does it not bother you that you don't? What can we do to use them up faster? Please feel free to talk about any product you want. I want this post to be about finishing stuff up and supporting each other while doing it <3
Hi! A friend is offering me Outlaw, but I already have Beso. I like trying different types of formulations, but are these similar? The colors are very similar, but I can't tell the difference outside of the tube as I won't be able to hit a Sephora for a while to swatch and I don't want to open it if she can give it to someone else. How similar are they? How different are they? Take it or pass? Please help. Thanks!
Hello Everyone, I love lipsticks so much.... I bought so many in Full size... never had chance to use them for third or fourth time. I am try to save money to get the mini lipsticks. I love High end branded lipstick such as Chanel. Dior, YSL etc but they never come in small size.. so I need to change to another brands. I have two sets in mind... Bite and Too Faced. I had used Bite before so I love it too. I do not know about Too Faced melted ones yet. I remembered last year Bite beauty came with the set like that...I don't know what the different colors this year and last year. In two of these set, which set would you recommend for? Thank you so much I love the holiday set Bite Beauty BEST BITE REMIX Too Faced Melted Kisses
