Bright and bold colors

I'm a lipstick junkie and have been playing with lots of bolder colors but have been struggling to find brands that have colors that I'm looking for. Anyone have any emerald green's or navy blues or deep purples they are in love with?

Re: Bright and bold colors

Hi @queenkaty34 , fellow lipstick junkie here—and you’re speaking my “bright bold colors” language! I did some swatches for you. These are all bullet lipsticks in various price ranges. If you’re looking for liquid mattes, I can give you some recommendations there as well.

  1. FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick Midnight Wasabi

  4. BITE BEAUTY - Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Kale 
  5. MAKE UP FOR EVER - Artist Rouge Lipstick - C603
  6. Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Backtalk (Comfort Matte) in Heroine

I have some new-to-me Illamasqua lipsticks arriving soon, and one of those might also be right up your alley. 

Re: Bright and bold colors

@queenkaty34  Try SEPHORA COLLECTION #LIPSTORIES Lipstick 65 Spiked! I have quite a bit of their cream lipsticks and they are so nice.  They're not that bad at $8.  They have it in emerald and deep navy blue.
