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!
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.

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?
I am interested in purchasing subject items with warm undertones. Can someone please note the warm toned colors in both the crayons and pencils. I have seen the pictures of these items on the Sephora website but don't know how to identify the warm colors. Appreciate a reply.
I fell in love with BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Lead the way. I then bought the dior contour lipliner pencil to go with it. What I have found is that the lipliner seems to bleed a little bit. It may be me, but is there another lipliner that you can suggest? And which color to go with Lead the Way?
Is there a trick to keep tube lipstick from getting oddly shaped? I have several tubes that started slanted and now the tips are so thin, I'm afraid they will break. I know I need to start out using it evenly, but is there a way to rescue tubes I've "ruined"?
Hi: I'd like to purchase a coral, matte, long-wear lip product that was made somewhere with decent labor practices (like the US, Canada, Western Europe, Singapore, Korea, or Japan). What would you suggest? Thanks in advance!
Hi, I was wondering if anyone has advice for getting a light soft pink lip when you have dark lips. I have medium neutral skin but I have pretty dark pigmented lips. I see pictures of people with soft baby pink lips and I really want to get that look, but can't seem to do it. I've wasted so much money trying different products. Whenever I try a light pink lipstick it looks streaky and the pigment gathers in the lines of my lips. I had a some luck with using a light nude lipliners all over the lips. I tried then putting the light lipstick on top. I also tried using a light lipgloss. But either way, it still doesn't look soft. The color starts to look kind of cakey and then the pigment of the lipliner mixes with liptsick and then it starts to look streaky. The color also gathers on the inside of my lips and gets clumpy there. Any advice? Or do I just stick to darker lipcolors?
I have just recently discovered Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème and have fallen in love. This lipstick lasts all day and my lips feel great while wearing it! Are there any similar lipsticks out there? I previously was hooked on Too Faced Melted Lipsticks but they really don't compare to Marc Jacobs as I frequently needed to use Chapstick as my lips were drying out and reapplication was frequent. Also, the Too Faced was a little sloppy looking compared to Marc Jacobs. But back to the real question: are there any VERY SIMILAR lipsticks to Marc Jacobs Lip Crème? I would like to purchase many more but wish the color selection was wider. I am preferably looking for a nude-ish color. Thanks in advance!
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.

This warm weather has me thinking about a new lip color for spring! I'm thinking something new in a pink or coral might be on the shopping list, but thought I'd get some ideas from BT members. What is your favorite lipstick/lipstain/lip-what-have-you to pull out when the flowers start blooming?
Hi, can anyone suggest a color for someone who is never happy with the lippies I buy!!! I have fair/light skin, medium brown eyes and warm med brown hair. I like the creaminess of sephoras rouge creme lipsticks. I bought courtisane, tried it, hated it and returned it. HELP!! I like dark pinks, looking for a semi-bold red, plums, any cool medium to dark pinks,plums,reds and berry. I heard valentine and decolette are pretty. Any advice would be appreciated!! Thanks
I just bought the Rouge Cream lipstick in 1st night, from the sephora line, but got the wrong liner. I brought home the sephora nano pencil in 18 pinup pink. Swatches match, but not the actual colors. Any ideas? So far I love this color on my very pale, pink undertones, over 40 skin! so that's a plus :-)
hello so because springs coming along, ive been looking around for a pink lipstick to wear for spring and summer. because im super pale and dont tan, i look better in cooler lip tones.i havent been able to find one that im really inlove with, so does anyone have any recommendations on a pink liquid to matte lipstick?? thanks a lot xx
Dose of Colors is coming out with a new liquid lipstick! This new fuschia berry shade is the sequel to the popular Berry Me. Berry Me 2 will launch on March 27and Black Rose launches officially on the site on March 31. Happy shopping!
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?
