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:
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.

So i just got Ruby Woo in the mail! YAYYY!! I have been wearing Heatwave for a while, which i will sometimes change out with catfight. What is your favorite true red? Or the one that you think sticks around and doesn't feather the best? I think my next purchase may be Lady Danger.
I've got fair skin (right now I have a little bit of a tan for the first time in almost a decade!), and I'm trying to find a good everyday lipstick. My sister's friend recommended a cantaloupey-coral color, or I'm wondering if a red lip would be too much for every day. What do you think?
So i went to the air show this weekend. And it would seem that Smiths Strawberry Lip Balm has zero sunscreen in it. Ya'll have anything that would work for my super duper sunburned lips?!?! My shoulders also got red, but i am taking care of that with tea!
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 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!
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.
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.

Hey everyone! Thanks for all your support - we wanted to share swatches of the Watercolor Lip Gloss Library before Mother's Day (we think it's a great gift!) The lighter, more unconventional shades of this palette are translucent and offer a sheer wash of colour, while the more wearable shades boast a higher pigment payoff. XO BITE
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
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 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.?
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."
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!
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!
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?
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?
Ladies, in the spirit of February being the dead of winter, let's bring some extra warmth to BT. I've noticed many ladies mention over the past few months that they lack the confidence or comfort level to rock a red lip. In that vein, I've decided to do a red lip a day for the next 28 days (or until I run out). Please feel free to pop in and join me by posting a pic of your red lippie, even if you don't want to don a red every day. And who knows, you might even find your next great red this way!

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!
