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!"

Re: Lipstick Playground

OCC Lip Tar in Authentic


Re: Lipstick Playground

this color complements you so pretty!

Re: Lipstick Playground

Great nude.

Re: Lipstick Playground

This color is so natural on you SQ.  I love it and it pairs so nicely with your eyes!  

Re: Lipstick Playground

So nice to see your pretty face again Social!  You look ready for summer with that colour....very pretty indeed!

Re: Lipstick Playground

Aww, thank you Green! It has been pretty warm lately, and it looks like the rain is ready to roll in after today for the next week.

Re: Lipstick Playground

I love this warm yet neutral color on you. You've got nicely shaped lips too (not to sound weird).

Re: Lipstick Playground

Hehe, that doesn't even register as weird on my meter at all. The only thing about my lip shape that bothers me are two freckles close to my lips. It makes it a bear to check my lines when I mistake a freckle for a smear!


But yes, I find it to be a bit warmer than the terracotta tar (maybe then this is red-ish terracotta pots?). It wasn't overly metallic either.

Re: Lipstick Playground

So pretty! This lip tar looks perfect on you!


Re: Lipstick Playground

Thank you, Lyra!

Re: Lipstick Playground

Well this is what I look like in a more orange-based shade. Yikes. This is the liquid lipstick in the Giorgio Armani trio perk -- #400. Am I the only one who thinks liquid lipsticks are hard to apply? (I can't find my Cupid's bow.) And do they ever really dry? Anyway, I think cool colors look best on me... my teeth look a little more yellow in this color methinks. Excuse the wet hair and lack of makeup today.

ETA: I'm surprised that people so far seem to like this on me! I thought for sure this was a throwaway shade. Thanks for the input!

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

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

This is a beautiful shade on you!

Re: Lipstick Playground

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

Re: Lipstick Playground

Such a gorgeous shade on you!

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?



( beautybycarmz )



( bubblymichelle )


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.
