Can anyone recommend a shade/color of the Buxom full-on lip polish that doesn't have glitter (or at least the glitter is very mild) AND isn't too neutral? *I have an olive complexion and a pink tint to my lips already. Thanks, in advance, for any suggestions!
Hello beautiful ladies! I hope one of you is able to help me out with this question. So I know nothing about lip liners other than those from MAC. Now that I have run out of my beloved MAC Cork, I thought this was a good time to test other lip liner formulas. Can any of you tell me of a solid dupe for Cork? I'm super interested in seeing what other brands have to offer. Thank you!
I recently read that you should match the color of your lip liner to your lip color no matter what color lipstick you wear - is this true? It seems odd - I have always matched my lip liner color to my lipstick color. I like to wear mauve shades, I can't imagine wearing a liner that is my lip color (pink-red) with that color lipstick..
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 ETA: My current roster below.

OR YOUR TOP TEN!! Hey fellow beauty lovers. I was thinking we could all use one thread to swatch our lipstick collections. Or even just a place to put up pics of just new lipsticks or any Lippy product we get. What do you think? If you're for it....go ahead! I'll be sure to post mine tomorrow. 😀💄 if you have more than one picture, please enter it as a spoiler that way the thread isn't too congested.
I HAVE EXTREMELY THIN LIPS AND HAVE USED YOUR LIP PLUMP PRODUCTS, ETC. SINCE NO LIPSTICK WORKS FOR ME I HAVE JUST QUIT USING ANY COLOR ON MY LIPS. DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS ON HOW OR WHAT TO USE TO MAKE MY LIPS LOOK FULLER AND HENCE USE LIPSTICK OR GLOSS, ETC.?
Does anyone else have an issue with their lip line being uneven due to dry skin? It kind of looks like I have tiny clogged pores but I think it's really just dry skin. I try to exfoliate on a regular basis but so far it's not working. Any suggestions on how to make it go away?
Generally I've been more of a natural lips kind of girl. I've gravitated to more glosses and balms and even when branched out to lipsticks, I've tended towards more neutral, wearable shades. Now I've decided I want to be more playful with my makeup, especially because I love purples. I picked up Bite Violet and absolutely love it. The color is super flattering with my skin tone and hair and just playful enough without going too crazy. BUT...I'm noticing when I go for a bolder lip color it seems to call attention to any imperfections in my skin. Has anyone noticed that as well? I'm feeling like maybe I might need a fuller coverage foundation for the days I want a bolder lip. Edited to add: When I've been wearing my violet lipstick I'm also wearing a full face of makeup (foundation, blush, smokey eye, brow makeup, etc.) so it isn't as if I'm bare faced with only lipstick.
Hi, I'm looking for a tried and true lip primer to especially use with the new Tom Ford lipsticks I just purchased? Specifically, I have some trouble spots on my lips that get so dry I pick at them and I'm finding that most primers that I like that are moisturizing tend to be too greasy and don't seem to do that matte lipstick colors enough justice. If it helps, I bought Pussycat and Ruby Rush. I also like wearing YSL lip stain, but don't feel like that lasts long on my lips with current primer. I'm currently using Napoleon's lip primer, and had previously tried Too Faced's primer and didn't like it. Any help is greatly appreciated - even if you have some curing suggestions for my lips, those would be helpful as well - I feel like I've tried everything under the sun. Neosporin, Softlips, Rose Salve, Chanel moisturizer, Dior's Lipglow, Kiehl's lip balm/ointment, and most recently Baume de Rose by Terry & Sugar lip treatment by Fresh. Shoot, I'm sure there's more - that's how bad it gets / I am! Thank you!
This is one of the most beautiful sets we've ever done. The Watercolor theme is playful and has inspired such pretty hues. This set is unique in that we've included some colours that are a little unusual, a pastel yellow and a mint green. These two shades, are sheer washes of colour and look great when mixed with some of the other glosses in the set or layered over top of other lipstick shades. The first six are sheer, and more diluted while the last six are more pigmented. Right now I'm loving the combination of #4 (a pale lilac shade), layered over Violet Luminous Creme Lipstick. It lightens the colour and adds such a beautiful shine. All of the glosses are super portable and can be easily layered and matched with your favourite lip products!
I bought the lip kit because it seemed like a deal. 8 lipsticks of .07 oz size each it said. The regular size is .14 oz, the decision was easy. But the more mini lipsticks I'm getting, the harder it is to believe each lipstick is .07 oz. I've compared it to the Kat Von D and Buxom minis and they seem like the same size as those two, yet they're only .04 oz. (Buxom looks taller but thinner). If you have these, can you compare and tell me if I'm crazy? Is the .07oz lipstick only, or does it include packaging? Maybe they meant .07 for each tube, which has two lipsticks in one.
I need swatches!!! As I see the new collection fly out of stock online, I've been scouring the internet for swatches to get a better feel of how the shades look. Most of them also look to be multiple shades of pink on the Sephora site, which doesn't seem to match up with the shade descriptions provided. Can anyone share their experiences so that, you know, I'm hopefully not compelled to get 18 out of 20 of them?
I'm a lip liner junkie and I love nothing more than filling in my lips before applying lip color and also drawing a little outside of the line. My go to product is UD's lip liner but there doesn't seem to be a color close enough to Vintage. I'd also use it for Kat Von D's LUV. I already own Ozone, the clear lip liner, and since I like to draw outside the line a bit Ozone doesn't work well for me. Any suggestions? I see Makeup Forever has one in Purple 13C that might work. Thanks!
So I think I have about 5 lippies so far. But currently Mac Canada has a promo for free shipping (no min.) so I thought I might add another lippie or two to the collection. So far I have: Venus, Abby, Ruby Woo, Sin and Studded Kiss, Any suggestions? Thanks
At the latest Rouge event, I purchased YSL #13 glossy stain, Rose Tempura. I applied it and It was beautiful on with its pinky red and not visible gold shimmer. Yesterday, I wore it all afternoon and well into late at night. I noticed only then that it looked very similar to YSL #11 Rouge Gouache on me. So today I tried them on side by side in bright daylight. They look so similar. Of course, the Rouge is red, and the Rose is strawberry red, but if you didn't know you were looking at two different colors, you wouldn't be able to tell (experimented several times with people, no one got it right ): I don't know what to do. I love the formula, that's why I bought the new color, and I love the color, but I don't know if I should exchange to get a new color that is not as similar instead. http://www.sephora.com/rouge-pur-couturevernis-a-l evres-glossy-stain-P304003?skuId=1466903 Have you found yourselves in this situation, and what have you done?
Say that 5 times fast! Any one else have issues with their Marc Jacobs lip lacquers leaking? For the longest time I couldn't figure out what in my makeup bag was leaking. Everything was sort of oily, but sticky. I finally solved the mystery when I wiped everything off, and had put my MJ lacquer in my makeup drawer. I grabbed it this morning and it was all sticky, along with the divider it was in. Did I get a defective one? The lid has always been on tight.
I was poking around on Refinery29 and found this: The description says it will be a whole line of nudes available in Sephora in the end of January. I am not sure how I feel about the "Hand cut bullet" Has anyone heard anything else about these yet? I am intrigued!
Did anyone else notice the description change for the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick? http://www.sephora.com/everlasting-love-liquid-lip stick-P384954?skuId=1552413 What else you need to know: You know what they say about Lolita. On some, she’s the perfect rosy nude. On others, she’s a deep, dramatic mauve. Some of you noticed that your new Lolita looked more brown than usual as a result of a manufacturer error. Since then, the shade has been corrected, so from now on, all Lolitas purchased will be the perfect dusty rose we all know and love. Want to see a different side of Lolita? Look for her rosier alter ego, Lolita II, coming soon. Mods, do you know when this is happening? Also, I'm glad there's an acknowledgment to the accidentally browner Lolita, but is anything going to be done for the people who purchased it already?
