Help me pick a new lipcolor...
I am turning to you, my BT community, in all of your wisdom. I generally wear neutral/nude/natural lip colors. I think my lips look thin and harsh with dark colors, but I would like to try more of a bright color. I see so many photos posted of everyone, and the brighter colors look so nice on everyone, no matter what shape their lips  or face.  "berry blushed" from Clinique and "watermelon" Burt's Bees are about as colorful as I have right now. Otherwise, I have Dolly Buxom and Blossom by Mally...nice colors, but no pizzazz. Here are my stats and preferences: Fair skin with pink undertones, 49 with nice skin, average lips but they turn down on the corners a bit.   I prefer a more sheer coverage with shimmer. Glosses preferred, but if a lipstick is more moisturizing, that will work too.  Something coral, berry or pinks that aren't dark or fuschia-bright  but are pretty and great for Spring and Summer?  Thanks in advance!

what color lipgloss do you think this is
        I saw this in a Bloomingdales catalog and was wondering if anyone knew what lip gloss this was.  It didn't say what the model was wearing on her lips.

Transfer free and/or natural lip product !
    The only lip products I use and have used are  the Dior Addict lip glow and Benetint..   I like them, but I would love to try new ones.. just that I don't know where to begin.. I don't even know which type (lipgloss, plump, balm, stick etc) is what I'm looking for    I have fair-light yellow toned skin (wear Dior nude foundation in 011),  don't wear alot of makeup and focus on the complexion.. simple eyeliner and mascara.  one of the reasons why I didn't wear lip products was because I didn't want to look "awkward" if that makes sense..  I even had a few Armani sheer lipsticks that I never wore.. (orange color looked very awkward on me)    could I please get some recommendations on something that looks natural?  I've heard about transfer free lip products also and is curious

Q. Sephora Birthday Gift Lipstick
I'm not sure if the answer to this is really obvious, but I got the Sephora birthday gift and it came with the MAKE UP FOR EVER Rouge Artist Natural lipstick. I absolutely LOVE it and want to buy it, but I'm not sure what shade it comes in. Does anyone know what shade the birthday lipstick comes in? Thanks!

Universal Lip Liners........
So after chic week it seems my lip stick and lip gloss collection has grown tremendously. There is no way I can possibly add a matching lip liner for each color I have.   I was looking at the clear universal lip liners and I see Sephora has one $10 and MUFE has one for $19.   Im open to all suggestions even a good basic nude or light pink liner that would go with just about any lip color.   I mostly wear nude, light pink, mauves, wine colors. Not too much corals or reds yet.

I'd recommend the Sephora one over the MUFE one. The MUFE did not last long for me at all and I very rarely used it. It was such a waste of money. see post

What lipgloss surprised you and is now your holy grail?
I'm addicted to Beso by Urban Decay's Naked line! I didn't think I would like it but I got another during the sale even though my first isn't even half way gone. It keeps my lips soft and moisturized...which is a hard thing to do with my dry, chapped lips. I like it more than Fresh's line. I would love to hear what you all can't live without??!!

Glossy Stain + Lipstick Trick
I wanted to share something I'm really excited about, but I knew that only you guys would understand! I just splurged on another YSL Glossy Stain (19: Beige Aquarelle). Though the colour range isn't everything I want it to be, the formula is amazing: I find the gloss lasts a really long time, isn't sticky, and has a very natural kind of finish. I grabbed the Beige Aquarelle because it's a very natural nude on me, and I wanted to use it for an experiment: if I layered it with some lipstick, would it both tone down my lipstick colour, and gift it with that lovely, long lasting glossy finish?   Happily, the answer is yes. I've taken to blending it with some of my favourite browns, bright reds, poppy corals and electric pinks. I put a layer of the Glossy Stain on, and a few minutes later, pick up some of my lipstick with my lipstick brush and put on a semi-generous helping. A minute later, I throw on a final layer of my Glossy Stain and both the gloss finish and the toned down lipstick last all day   Has anyone else tried anything like this?

A new product from Bite Beauty! BB For Lips!
As many of you, I have a deep love for the Bite Beauty brand.  I just saw this product on Sephora today.  This comes in 5 sheer colors (one is just clear) and is a five-in-one balm.     To quote the product page: "Essential for the look and feel of just-kissed, healthy, and hydrated lips, this color-rich balm repairs, primes, and protects with SPF 18. Natural lip repair lipids mimic the lips’ natural surface to revitalize, replenish, and restore texture for the ultimate softness."    I am so excited!  Whose gonna get it?  (And then post swatches and write an awesome review Lol)   http://www.sephora.com/bb-for-lips-P386121?skuId=1 584291

OCC Lip Tars - Overrated?
I did see the other posts about lip tars on here, and I felt like creating a new thread because the last one hasn't been touched in over 6 months and I feel like there has been a lot of hype around the lip tars.   I love everything about the lip tars except for how they actually work.  They are pigmented, but they're also sticky and they have no staying power.  I guess if you don't drink/eat/talk too much they'll stay on.  I've had them wear off on me in about 4 hours, and I wasn't eating/drinking anything.    Because they're all liquidy, it's also really hard to reapply.  I can't imagine taking a lip brush and the lip tar with me to reapply.  I also hate how the product always separates and you have to shake it up really well before or it comes out all weird.   I'm wondering how everyone else feels about them.  A friend recently mentioned she was thinking of purchasing the mini lip tar set as a gift, and I told her not to because I don't think they're worth it.  There are so many better (in terms of long lasting) lip products on the market.  At least it seems like they're moving away from the claims that their lip tars are long lasting.

carmine free eyeshadows and lipsticks/lipgloss?
I'm looking for carmine free eyeshadows and lipstick/lipgloss. I know Laura Mercier has a few products that I can use that are carmine free, but I'm looking for other brands to try. Any suggestions? This is because of a carmine allergy. It's difficult to read the ingredients for everything so I was hoping for any known carmine free brands as a starting point. Many thanks in advance!
