Hi everyone, I have been having extra drying and random rashes on my lips for the last 6 months. I have been using on and off the Jack Black lip balm so I never realized that it was the culprit, chalking it down to winter dryness....till this weekend, when I was on travel and I had only the Jack Black lip balm on hand. After my flight and getting to the hotel, I felt my lips to be too dry, so after the shower I put an extra amount of the lip balm on and went to bed. Woke up in the morning to big swollen lips, covered by tiny blisters (no possible food allergies, given that I had brought food from home for the flight). To cut the story short, I started looking at the beauty threads and I discovered that over the years Jack Back has had two very different list of ingredients published for their lip balms. I have been using a sample that did not indicate directly the parabens as ingredient but their lip balm has parabens and hence my reaction (I know I have allergy to preservatives and hence bringing food from him for travel)! I have bought during the VIB sale last year the Jack Black Lip Balm Holiday set and now I am looking at 4 very terrible products for my lips. So two questions: 1) can I return the gift/value box even if it is after the 60days from the purchase date? 2) any suggestions for great lip balms/products that are paraben-free? I know I can use the plain vaseline but petrolatum is not my favorite product.
I love smashbox's always on in the shade "Stepping Out" but I really want to go out and try a almost the same or similar shade from a different brand does anybody know one that is the same or maybe even better than smashbox's? (I have no price point lol) thanks in advance.
I don't think I've ever come across a transfer-proof liquid lipstick that isn't matte. I've tried the Marc Jacobs Liquid Lipstick and the Sephora Luster Matte, but both do not dry down. Actually...now that I think about it, it doesn't even have to be liquid. It can be in solid form as well ! Thanks!
If you're on BeautyTalk, you're probably well-aware of the nude lip trend and may even own a handful (or three) of these shades. While I love the trend, I still can't seem to find my "perfect nude" so I am very excited to start talking more broadly about UnNudes! UnNude lip shades offer a spectrum from standard nude shades to more bold, neutral shades. These are the mauvy brown, deep chocolate, rose-goldy-earth toned neutral shades and they come in a variety of finishes (matte, metallic, creamy and shiny).
Here's the challenge: rock an UnNude lip look between Monday, February 6th- Sunday, February 19th. No requirement on how often to post but I'm going to try for every weekday!
Keep in mind, this challenge overlaps Valentine's Day so I am also challenging you to change it up by wearing a bold neutral instead of the typical red. (Hint: red is not an UnNude!)
Check the spoiler for examples of some of UnNude shades. Can't wait to see your take on neutral lips!

I was generously offered a chance to try out Bite's new Lip Pencils by Sephora and received two shades, 010 Rosey Mauve and 022 Rosey Brown. Initially I hesitated because Bite's products typically make my lips break out in a tiny-water-blisters rash, but I thought that since lip pencils tend to have different formulas, I'd give it a try. I have worn 022 twice now and so far, they do seem less drying and chalky than other lip pencils I use. Very smooth and creamy with excellent pigmentation. Yesterday, I wore only lip pencil to dinner, and there was still some colour left on my lips after eating cauliflower fritters, braised beef ribs, and drinking water. This morning, I used the pencil to line and fill my lips before putting on Tom Ford Eric on top, and the pencil evened out my lip colour and was a good base for the lipstick. My reaction to Bite products are almost immediate; I'll usually feel a bit of texture on my lips overnight after wearing a Bite product. So far, no issues... hopefully it stays that way! This is 022 on my lips. It's VERY close to my natural lip colour, maybe just a bit more pinky. I do like colours like these, since they're perfect for nude lipsticks. Note--I do use shea butter on my lips before applying any lip products, hence there's a bit of a sheen.
Hi everyone! I'm in a wedding in August and would like a lipstick that matches my dress - or at least goes with it. I've been searching for a good wine/burgundy lipstick and almost bought NARS Audacious in Charlotte but thought it was too dark. I have Bite Beauty's high pigment lip pencil in Meritage and love how it's a "softer" red - I'd like a wine lipstick that's that type of color. Any suggestions?? For reference, I've attached a pic of the dress below. I also have blonde hair and light/medium skin. Thank you all so much!!
Does anyone have a good recommendation for a pinky nude liquid lipstick that does not have an orange undertone? I am very fair and have found all the liquid lipsticks that I have tried to have an orange undertone. Granted, I have not tried many. Any recommendations?? It would be very much appreciated!
Hi! So I recently bought the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Blackberry Sorbet!! Any advice on what to pair it with in terms of eye makeup, etc.?? I LOVE the color but am absolutely hopeless when it comes to pairing bolder colors with everyday looks. Thanks so much!!!

Hey there! Recently I bought the lip injection lip plumper from too faced and I love it but I'd like to know if it can be worn with lipstick/ lip tints/ lip stains/ etc, or if it can only be worn all by itself. Also, if it can, I'd like to know whether the lipstick goes before or after the lip plumper and how does it differ form wearing it with nothing else on your lips. Thanks!
My lips are dealing with some serious wintertime blues, and they could use some help! Can you recommend any products that could help restore my lips and combat dryness/flaking? You can definitely tell they need help whenever I use a matte lipstick. Thanks!
Hey -- my lips burn a few times a day. Sometimes it's triggered by lip products and sometimes not. But I am CONFUSED because lip products that used to soothe me now TRIGGER the burning -- even wonderful YSL Oil-In-Stick or Melted satin or Urban Decay. Am I allergic to something? What's going on?
Will Sephora stores and online be carrying the new Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipsticks? I can see that they are being released on Urban Decay's website, but am looking to purchase them from Sephora. If so, when will they be launched?
I'm curious, I've never really worn lip products. I'd prefer something thats really low maintenance. I don't want to have to worry about it coming off, and i want it to feel natural. Any recommendations?
I'm looking for a lipstain I can use with chapstick, that lasts all day, and doesn't smudge over everything? I tried lipsense - But I hate the feel of gloss and don't want to spend a fortune just to have color on my lips all day. I've also tried Revlon Colorstay Ultimate - but it smudges and is left on anything I drink out of and comes off on my chapstick. Am I wanting something unrealistic?
i have been waiting for a few weeks but then there are no in-stock messages for color #506 #507 and also some other colors. i wonder when will they be in stock? and they are also out of stock in their official site.
Sorry about the extreme specificity of this post! Someone apparently saw one of my photos where I used an Armani lipstick but didn't list the color. They reached out to me on Instagram to ask what color I was using. Unfortunately I don't know which photo it was in reference to AND I can no longer find the photo with the comment on IG. I was traveling for a while over the holidays and didnt want to respond until I was back home and could look for the shade. Anyway! If you are reading this I checked my lipsticks and the two Armani lipsticks I own in pink are: 505 - This is a Rouge d'Armani Sheer lipstick in a black tube. 506 - This is a Rouge Ecstasy lipstick in the red tube. I hope this found the intended recipient and helps you out.
Hi all, happy 2017! I had a chance to try Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick in Melted Velvet at my local Sephora and I'm in LOVE with the color. Unfortunately the long wear is a lie, and it transfers anywhere and everywhere :/ So far out of all the lipstick I ever owned, this one transfers the most. Can you recommend a matte lipstick or liquid lipstick with similar color, preferably something actually long wearing? I have MUFE's aqua rogue and I'm a bit spoiled by how much it sticks, too bad they don't have it in this color. Or if you have any tips or know any secret to making it actually long wearing, that would be great too Thank you! http://www.sephora.com/melted-liquified-long-wear- lipstick-P386033?skuId=1664945&icid2=products%20gr ...
Hi guys, Wondering if you could help me out. Im an olive/medium toned girl (NW25 at mac). I'm looking for a very natural MLBB lip colour that will define the lip and also last all day. Is there a specific brand, line, or shade that you would recommend? Preferably not too expensive. Something like this would be amazing. It basically matches her natural lip color, and it defines the lip. Thank you so much
