Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lippie vs. NARS Audacious
Being that I live nine+ hours away from a Sephora, I was wondering if any of you use Laura Mercier's Crème and if you could possibly do a swatch? Preference between Laura Mercier / NARS / KVD - primarily for pigmentation and formula .. etc. After watching Mrs. B's color challenge, I've been eyeing lipsticks/stains, etc and I would like to purchase a few "first" lipsticks. Any input would be nice!

Bite Beauty Maple Collection? (Canada exclusive)
A few photos showed up on my instagram through Beautezine, and apparently there is a Canada-Exclusive lip collection coming out in July for the fall from Bite, let's call it the Maple Collection. It apparently features 5 matte lipsticks with a maple scent, and a Maple Agave Lip Mask. So jealous, I'd love to get my hands on a maple-scented agave lip mask! Here are the photos that Beautezine posted on her instagram:     and swatches:

My Precious - Tales of the Long Lasting Lipstick Quest
Hello my Fellow Lipstick Addicts,   I am on a never ending quest for the most Holy of Holys - the Precious of any Purse - THE REAL LONG LASTING LIPSTICK (or Stain).   So many claim to be long lasting but we know they are filled with lies.  Piles of lip stains, balms, sticks, and pencils go unwanted after they have failed the Last test yet their makers continue to mislead us in a belief that their product will last long!  For shame I say - for shame!!!!   If YOU hold the Precious please share its gift with one such as I for I fear I have gone without for far too long.  Please aid me in my quest and if you do hold the secret of the Precious than you shakllk be rewarded!  (ok you will get a Thank You post but that is like a reward)   -Lipsticky in Colorado

Berry Lips for fair skin
I have blonde hair, blue eyes and fair skin and I'm looking for a berry lipstick that won't wash me out too much. I love the way darker, more purple berry colors look on women with tanner/darker skin tones, but I'm not sure if I can pull those off with my pale/fair skin (and I don't want to look absolutely ridiculous!). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Does anyone else have trouble wearing lipstick? I've never been able to really wear it successfully.
I do use a lip scrub and lip balm often enough, but find my lipstick never stays, doesn't apply evenly, and I always end up getting color build up in the drier spots. (I don't have super dry lips in case your wondering) Hence why I don't use lipstick, but try on occasion. Because of this I have always gravitated towards lip tints and lip stains and have had a lot more success. Has anyone else experienced this and what have you done to overcome it? I'm not sure a lip primer would be a game changer if I tried it.

Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick
Seems like liquid matte lipsticks are huge right now and Anastasia is joining the club with a collection of 20 shades, launching Jan 7th on her website and on Macys.com $20 each.   Here are the swatches for your viewing pleasure   I think the colors are gorgeous and there are at least three shades I know I will be buying.     What do you think?       EDIT: I basically stalked Norvina (Anastasia's daughter) because she's been wearing those lippies and testing them for I while and I got you some pictures so you can see how gorgeous these actually look... which might be not a good thing for us.    Pure Hollywood   Potion   Baby pink Vamp  Sad girl   American doll   Lovely   Vintage   Spicy

Hey girls, 2 part question here for you. So I am currently wanting to add to my ' wish list ' and I need your suggestions of brands that carry the most pigmented, most sought after and most colour selection lipsticks. Now it can be from High End / Drugstore as well. Second question is I am wanting to try out MAC lipsticks at some point. What colour's are worth the the price paying for it ?. So far I have my eyes on Diva & Media.

Givenchy VIB Rouge Exclusive Shade 301 Vermillon Creation or 304 Moka Imprime (Super Confused)
I just received my order for the following today - http://www.sephora.com/le-rouge-porter-P398643?sku Id=1722107   When you add this gorgeous lipstick to your cart it shows up as shade 304 Moka Imprime.  What I received was 301 Vermillon Creation.  The case says VIB ROUGE as it should. I noticed that Vermillon Creation seems to be the shade shown in the picture.  So...   I'm confused.  Neither 301 or 304 are Rouge Exclusive shades.  I see they can be purchased under the usual Le Rouge A Porter listing.  It's just the case that's exclusive?  And they just give you whatever color they feel like chucking in your package?
