Lipstick Playground

Hello there my fellow lipstick junkies!


This thread is a playground for all lipstick junkies out there. A place where we can share anything about our darlings. Because... c'mon! We need our personal space to play, right? Smiley Wink Please, feel free to share anything and everything about your lovelies: hand/lip swatches, your staples, must haves, loved ones, not so loved ones, "fails", nasty lil buggers, lipstick of the day, new acquisitions, old flames, experiments, creative stuff, thoughts on lippies, challenges... lots and lots of photos, of course... You get the picture...  "Anything goes!" ( to quote our lovely DiVWA ) Smiley Happy


Post, share, discus, and the most important thing - have fun!


I declare our lippie playground officially open! Smiley Happy




Lippie junkies united!!! Smiley Wink


New, Spring 2017 Lipstick Challenge is here:



Re: Lipstick Playground

I really like this shade on you! I think this is a fun punch of colour that brightens up your whole face Smiley Happy

Re: Lipstick Playground

If only I looked as beautiful with wet hair, no makeup and a lipstick color that I thought was too warm Smiley Happy

Re: Lipstick Playground

Whoa! Now, that's a gorgeous red on you! Absolutely stunning. Well, I'd say you wear orange-based shades quite well yourself, missy. Smiley Wink 


Yep. Liquid lipsticks are a pain to apply for me, too. I hate them, and love them, at the same time ( I hate application, but love everything else about them ( usually they're long wearing, and I'm a sucker for those! ) ). Most of the time I avoid them because of that lil detail. Ain't nobody got time fo dat! Smiley Tongue 

Re: Lipstick Playground

Thanks Lyra. Do you happen to know a good match for this that isn't a liquid lipstick? I'd prefer this color in a bullet. Maybe Besame Red Hot Red as Anne mentioned.

Re: Lipstick Playground

How about NARS Audacious Carmen?

Gotta run, but there may be something else, too.... Later. Smiley Wink

Re: Lipstick Playground

Maybe even Rita?




Maybe some of these?



Tom Ford's Ruby Rush? But, I think it's not as orange based.








 I ( personally ) would go with Carmen. Smiley Wink But, that's just me.

Re: Lipstick Playground

Thanks Lyra. I will have to look into these. I just read Temptalia's review of #400 and she says that #400 is a blue-based red. I could have sworn I saw some orange in it and on me. Weird.


I appreciate the effort you put into researching and pulling together swatches.

Re: Lipstick Playground

No problem. Smiley Happy


I thought it looked "blue" on you, as well. But, I know how photos are sometimes deceiving and not true to the real deal ( lighting, shades, this, that ), so I went with your description. If it is really blue, I think there are even more options out there.


Now that you say it is blue, I'd recommend Ruby Woo... But, I don't think you'd like the formula. It's a metro rat. Smiley Wink




Check TF Ruby Rush, Cherry Lush, NARS Dragon Girl, MAC Russian Red and MAC Red, Besame Red as it looks "bluer" than Red Hot Red. If something else pop up in mind, will let you know. 


Anyway... Now I need Carmen!!!

Re: Lipstick Playground

Such a gorgeous shade on you!

Re: Lipstick Playground

I really really like it. Doesn't look too orange at all to me.

Re: Lipstick Playground

This is a beautiful shade on you!

Re: Lipstick Playground

All lipsticks are hard for me to apply.  My hands shake.  This is much prettier than I imagined it.  Can't wait to try it.  This looks so beautiful on you.

Re: Lipstick Playground

don't toss it! i agree w/ everyone else--this looks great on you. i wear liquid lipsticks often and i still have bad days where i can't seem to apply it nicely. p.s. your garden is lovely

Re: Lipstick Playground

I have some recent shades and lots of goofing off - collective post:


1.  Stila balm lipstick in Valentina - a proper orange (yellow toned)

2. YSL Rouge Pur Couture - #19 Fuchsia Pink

3. Rouge Dior - Times Square

4. Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro - 503.  I think I like Sephora Luster matte more.

Re: Lipstick Playground

It's like a lipstick shopping catalog! They all look so good! lol Smiley Very Happy

You have a fantastic smile


If I had to pick a favorite, it would be #4... I love how you look in red <3


Re: Lipstick Playground

Thanks Mixe!  I like myself in reds a lot too.  I wish #4 had a better formula.

Re: Lipstick Playground

I love them all!  But wanted to comment on 2.  One of the most gorgeous ever on you (saying a lot!!!).

Re: Lipstick Playground

Thanks Megan and Titian!


I had recently swatched this at Sephora in Vegas when I was bumming around.  And then in my notorious "in flight" shopping, I bought this.  I like it a lot!

Re: Lipstick Playground

Hi, GC!  You look great in all these colors!  #2 really stands out, though.  Smiley Happy

Re: Lipstick Playground

Gorgeous colors! You look good in everything!

Re: Lipstick Playground

K617, all the blah lipstick colours are sitting in a remote corner of my stash talking badly about me ;-)


Thank you.
