Thoughts on which is better? Since I've been playing more with lippies recently, I've noticed that the lines in my lips are getting a little deeper and stuff is settling in them. I tried the PTR lip treatment, but it caused an allergic reaction Help!
I like a lipstick, but some are drying and I add a gloss to help. I just discovered a new favorite combo ( Mac snob and nars born this way) I rarely wear one or the other i like the formula when I mix them. Let's share our favorite combos, maybe I can get some new ideas! Some of us have huge piles of lippies and we may find we have a combo we have never tried! This will be just for pinks... I'll let someone else take the reds and nudes. Pics are welcome!!
Hi, I'm getting married and would like a long wear lip stick that wont rub off also I i need a good concealer to cover a few blemishes from acne (i have a caramel complexion). What are good brands what do you recommend?
What happened to the Make Up Forever lip shade finder? I used it previously to find the most perfect neutral shade for me in the Aqua Rouge line. I'd like to get a darker, more burgundy-ish shade now since I know I LOVE the Aqua Rogue, but the shade finder seems to have disappeared. Help! Thanks!!
So, last weekend a couple of friends and I decided to go to a bar/club in town to hang out. I got way dolled up and, in the process, discovered a new style of lipstick application that I love! And to be frank, I discovered in completely by accident while trying to decide what color to wear. So, I'm wondering, does anyone else wear this style occasionally? (Weird and awkward selfie included to show off what I mean! Not to mention, I'm a camera queen. )
Hello everyone, I need some help my grandparents are coming over from Korea and I was thinking of sending some gifts for some cousins and aunts on their way back.. I thought lipsticks/lip glosses were a reasonable choice because they're light weight, is small in volume, and isn't overly expensive... but I have like zero knowledge about lip products.. I'm more of a foundation and eyeliner junkie ..and I don't wear lipsticks/gloss or even balm.. so I honestly don't know what to look for in lip products - which qualities are characterized as being "good" and which are "bad".. I don't mind the brand, but I do want it to be a good quality.. and not overly expensive.. because I'm buying at least 5~7. I tried going to the lipstick section on sephora website and line them in order of "rating" and got Nars, Dior, Sephora, givenchy, Laura Mercier, etc but that's too many options.. I was also thinking about Marc jacobs because they don't have that brand in Korea.. also, most of my family (especially younger ones in 20s) are pretty pale.. like YSL touche eclat BR10 ish.. and m y aunts are a tad bit darker with yellow undertones. please help one of my cousins is into Mac's Korean candy.. reddish glowy orange color (from what I see online.. not in person) is there any "better quality" lipstick that has the same color? I read somewhere that they settle in fine lines of the lips..
Hi! Anyone who's been watching the Goss YouTube channels probably has heard of his trick of using a high-shimmer eyeshadow under and over lipstick in place of a gloss. After a lot of experimentation with glosses (from YSL to Burt's Bees), I decided they aren't for me. But, I love the high shine look of lip gloss, so I want to give this technique a try. Has anyone tried (and succeeded) doing this technique? And what shadow did you use?
Sephora recently discontinued Matchmaker in their rouge shine line I'm now scrambling to find a new signature color. Do you ladies have any suggestions for a sheer, pinkish cantaloupe color? I was looking at UD and Native looks quite lovely, though the color is a bit different. Thank you everyone!!!
About two months ago, I started searching around for some orangey lip colors for spring/summer. Since then, I've tried on a bunch and purchased 8…because I have a lipstick addiction (Are their meetings for this? I would totally go to lipstick anonymous meetings.) I figured I'd swatch them and share in case anyone else is on a similar hunt. I have neutral to warm undertones, freckles, and dark brown hair. I find pinky-corals are not my friend so most of these fall in the red orange category. Enjoy. P.S. - If anyone has additional suggestions, I'd love to hear them. I'm still on the look-out for a lighter true orange. Left to Right: 1. L'oreal Color Riche Caresse, 188 - Coral Tattoo 2. Estee Lauder Pure Color, 26 - Nectarine 3. Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint, Sprited 4. Tarte LipSurgene Power Pigment, Blissfull 5. Rouge Dior, 526 - Macadam 6. Lancome L'absolu Nu, 148 - Coral Ribbon 7. Dior Addict, 643 - Diablotine 8. YSL Gloss Volupte, 103 - Opium Persan
I've fallen in love. Its been out for a while, but the Provocative lipstick from Guerlain's crazy paris collection is honestly one of the most amazing shades ever. BUT as much as I love my high end products, I'm not sure I'm willing to pay $50 for a lipstick...usually, $30 is my max for lipsticks and only if I REALLY love a color So...does anyone know of a dupe??? Fingers crossed!
Hello everyone! Can anyone tell me what colours are in the 'Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain' sample set currently available? There are a few colours I've been wanting to try so I just wanted to know if they were in there or not. Thanks in advance! Btw, when posting questions on here it lets you change the font colour but can anyone actually see it?
Okay so this is awkward but i need to send my girlfriend lipstick which is kind of fuschia I know she loves MAC impassioned but that isnt available on Sephora and she already has it can anyone else recommend me another lipstick thats similar to the impassioned please my budget is 100$
I don't know how many of you are into indie brands but I recently discovered Shiro Cosmetics. They have a line of "Cages through the ages" lipgloss- I read the descriptions and figuratively died laughing ! Anyone interested in glossilfying their lips with the likeness of Nicholas Cage?
Obviously, cool toned shades are the most whitening, however from your collection or experience, which specific shades from any brand are the best? As an NC 15 girl, it's really easy for my teeth to look yellow if I'm wearing the wrong lip colour since I'm so pale. I'd appreciate the suggestions!
So I never tried my lip gloss from last month I thought it smelled bad, well come to find out the minis that we received were made in China while the full size is made in the U.S.. But the ingredients in the minis are not the same as the full size. So chances are if you liked the mini you might not like the full size since the ingredients are not even close.
I am wondering, does anyone have any experience with these guys? I have become desperate in my search for Chanel Dragon and so I'm either going to end up spending $100 on Ebay or $60 for a couple tubes of it via 3 Custom. Before I take the plunge though I'd love to hear your thoughts! Were the matches good? Do they do liquid lipsticks as well as solid tubes? (Chanel Dragon is a liquid and I'd like it to be liquid too.) Do they get the finish of the lipsticks right? (Like, shimmery, glittery, etc). Thanks guys!
I just got the MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Lipglass that came out recently. It is heaven over a blue based red lipstick! (I'm currently using Clinique chubby stick intense in Mightiest maraschino. Its a good dupe for the Mac Viva Glam Rihanna lipstick but without the frost. I got it with my BI points last year, actually, so that saved me some $.) Since these are limited edition, I am trying to decide if I should buy another one before they sell out. However, if anyone has dupe suggestions (particularly ones that are drugstore brands), I could just wait until it runs out to replace it. Thanks!
Last month I posted about looking for my holy grail lip color: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Lips/Seeking-my-ho ly-grail-lip-color/m-p/1076771 I think I found it, Korres Mango Butter lipstick in Natural Rose 25...however, Sephora is phasing out most of the Korres color line. I know the Mango Butters are still being sold at other places online, but "my" color seems hard to find. Does anyone know of any dupes that are similar, both in color and texture/formula? It wouldn't be impossible to find Natural Rose online still, but I prefer to have a back-up option just in case. The Laura Mercier sheer lipsticks look promising, so I will have to swatch those next time I'm in the store. Any other ideas? Thanks in advance.
Hey everyone! I absolutely love lipstick! I have so many shades from different brands and I'm looking to find a new and exciting color to add to my collection. I have light skin and brown hair and eyes just for reference. If anyone has any suggestions, that would be great! I have never owned a YSL lipstick and they look interesting, but I don't know if any shades are unique enough to purchase. Also interested in trying a Marc Jacobs lipstick but a lot of the colors look like neutral shades I might already have. If you have any thoughts, please share! Thanks for your input!
Is this no longer available at Sephora? Looking at the product page it doesn't appear to be listed anymore (not even as out of stock.) If so does anyone know of any similar products? I'm basically looking for a black gloss that will give a sheer wash of color to darken or mute lip colors - not something completely opaque. I took a look at Illamasqua's glosses but their black is waaay too intense. Thanks!
i have two questions both lip related so i figured i'd combine them . does anyone know a sephora brand lip liner that will match mac's heroine and second what does lip primer really do? my natural lip color is on the darker side and tends to chance lipstick colors on me i'd love to have a primer to cover so i can get the original color
