Alright, wise people of Beauty Talk. I have a lipstick holder and keep all my MAC lipsticks in it. I spend so much time on the morning pulling them out and turning them to read the label and find the one I want. I was complaining to my sister about this morning ritual and I said I was probably just going to store them upside down so the labels are easy to read. She gasped as though I had suggested that I give them all to my daughter to use as crayons and just buy a tube of Chapstick as replacement. She said all of the bullets would break off due to gravity and they'd be ruined! Is she right? Do you store your precious tubes of coloured happiness upside down or right side up?
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've been looking for a cool-toned pinky-red matte lipstick for a while and came across MAC's Damn Glamorous, which seems like it's what I'm looking for. However, since I don't wear matte lipsticks often, it doesn't make sense for me to drop a lot of money on one, so I was hoping to find a drugstore dupe (that is also matte). For another frame of reference, NARS' satin lipstick in Luxembourg is similar to what I'm looking for as well. Any suggestions? MAC Damn Glamorous NARS Luxembourg from Temptalia's site
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 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 :-)
Soo I ordered 714 and queen sulreme from jeffreestarcosmetics(havent gotten them should be here tomorrow) and while I think both look lovely on everyone im having moments where im unsure iT Will look on me. I was wondering if there is a lipliner that would make 714 more wearable? (Already have one for queen supreme) I prefer nyx, mac and colourpop lipliners and I appreciate the help! Thank you
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?
So lately I'm just not loving my lips. For the past 4 years or so I've been over lining to give my top lip a fuller appearance to match the fullness of my bottom lip. Just curious on anyones thoughts on lip injections or personal experiences you have had. It's something I've thought long about and am highly considering.
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."
I tried a lipsticks from MAC called "Kinda Sexy" and loved the color, it's the perfect neutral color for me, but the formula is way too drying. Can anyone recommend a similar color (any brand/finish ok)?
I saw this picture from fashion week and am having difficulty matching the color. It's a pink/orange shade on the model. In stores, everything seems too red or significantly bolder than this color. Any recommendations?
Hi, I'm wanting a nude lipstick, preferably one with a matte finish. I tried Mac's Velvet Teddy but it just looked weird on my lips, as if it was grey? I've got red hair and quite pale skin. Can you give me any advice? THANKS!!
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!

Happy Monday all! So I'm at my wits end here. I never noticed over time just how small/thin (I'm not even sure what the correct word is) my upper lip is. I noticed most recently when playing w/ lippies and then taking a pic that when I smile my upper lip literally disappears. It looks very odd...I would never had said I had full lips in the past, but I don't recall this. I continue to get frustrated w/ this and just give up w/ a lippie all together. I searched techniques to make my upper lip more pronounced. I've tried applying a bit of concealer/foundation and lining the top, but only a portion of the bottom, but Nada!. Any of my lovely ladies have some tips, or can direct me towards some? I've got so many pretty lippies I want to wear, but as I said it just looks quite odd. Thanx in advance. ~KAM
So I have the Makeup Forever Rouge Artist lipstick in N09 and was wondering if there are any other lipsticks with the same nude tone? It looks like my lips but better, and I'd love to try another lipstick out! Thanks
Hi everyone! I am obsessed with how Dose of Colors "Kiss of Fire" looks but it's always sold out so I'm looking for dupes. The reds I currently have mostly blue-based so I'm looking for this bright fiery red.
So I tried a couple of these babies the other day and let me say I am IMPRESSED. I am a major lipstick hoarder but it takes a lot for me to really rave about a lippie. I didn't have high expectations. The tubes reminded me a bit of the Colorpop lippie stix, which I wasn't that wow-ed by. (The lippiestix were OK...just didn't feel like they were anything special and the colors all seemed very similar, and all very cool-leaning.) But the moment my first high voltage lipstick touched my lips I was blown away. Holy pigmentation, batman! I usually need to go over my lips a couple times to get fully opaque coverage but these were so wonderfully packed with color I only needed to touch it to my lips - not even really apply pressure. Just instant, vivid, opaque color. Speaking of -- the color selection is soooo good. I love how much variety there is. So far I have wine and dine, feline and burlesque -- and I love all of them. They have cool toned and warm toned shades. And the wear was fabulous. Extremely comfortable, non drying, and very very long lasting. Upwards of 7 hours without a meal. Even when I kissed my husband and left kiss marks all over his face, the color on my lips didn't appear faded at all. I went back to the NYX website to grab some more this week but they were sold out of all the colors I wanted. So maybe I will make a trip to Ulta this weekend -- hopefully they have them in stock! Have you guys tried these? What do you think? Any favorites, any color recommendations?
I am one to follow the trend in lipsticks. It's a quick, easy, small change to your look that can really pop. Lately I've been seeing a lot of berry lips in magazines/TV/Pinterest/etc. What lip colors are "in" for Spring 2-15?
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.
