Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

I posted about a week ago about how Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick literally peeled the skin off my lips. I LOVE the color but I just cannot wear that brand of lipstick anymore.  I am looking for a little help with finding a similar color in a brand that is better about being good for sensitive lips.

 

The color I like it called Primrose (third color from the left).  

 

(this image is from sleepandwater.blogspot ).

 

 

 

This is pretty accurate for the color they turned my lips (this image is not mine)

 


I was thinking maybe Too Faced La Creme Naked Dolly? (this is what I want for Mothers day) Anyone who is sensitive have a reaction to their products?

 

Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Hi Roxystar4,

 

That's a pretty cool toned pink shade! Naked Dolly is more of a nude neutral shade with more beige undertones. You might want to try the Sephora Collection Rouge Shine No. 14 Love Spell - Glossy - semi-sheer cool light pink. It has a glossy/hydrating finish.

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

thank you! melissa, are both of these good options for sensitive lips?  

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

Hi Roxystar4!

Since sensitivity to products will differ for each person, it's hard to say how it might work for you. I can tell you I have sensitive lips too! Anything with too much fragrance makes my lips itch or peel. I also found the Bite Luminous Crème Lipstick
Vouvray - ballet pink which I think you might like too. It's actually more of a cooler pink in person and its free of all of these ingredients.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
- Petrochemicals
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

I was just about to suggest this!  I just bought my fist Bite Beauty lipstick and it really is amazing.  It is incredibly pigmented, but also incredibly light and soothing/moisturizing for your lips.  I love lipstick, but it's not always the most comfortable thing to have on. Bite Beauty lipsticks are different - I actually felt more comfortable wearing it than not (or than wearing chapstick or something!)

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

great to know. I just got a $30 gift card to sephora from my bestie and I am pretty sure Im going to pick this up. 

 

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

Awesome!  Feel free to post a thread with your thoughts and/or swatches if you buy anything!

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

i went to sephora and swatched the colors you mentioned @melissaBT - big fan of pout & love spell. Do you know which of the two is known to be better for sensitive lips?

 

Also, the Bite lipcolors at my local sephora store did not include vouvray Smiley Sad  Is it really close (color wise) to the pout or love spell?

Thanks!

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

Yay! I'm glad you got to swatch themSmiley Happy From what I know neither one really specifies that they are ideal for sensitive skinSmiley Sad I know that some people might find fragrance as an issue in some lipsticks and everyone might have different results! I would say Vouvray is more like Loves Spell.

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

ok thanks!! I may just have to order it online Smiley Happy

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

Ok no problem! You can also try doing a google search for the shade to see what images pull upSmiley Happy

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips


I just bought Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in 220 Pink Chic. It looks similar & I read on Temptalia's blog that people really liked it/think it is moisturizing. I just dont want it to react like the Revlon on my lips. Does anyone have experience with this brand and make of lipstick?

Thanks!

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

roxystar4---I have that lipstick and I keep it in my purse at all times for touch ups! I love Rimmel London, its hands down my absolute favorite drugstore line, I've never been disappointed with anything from this brand. The pink chic color is gorgeous, and its fully opaque/full coverage, not drying at all and lasts for hours and hours.

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

sephoramusthave, i was so scared to use another drugstore brand after what happened with Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick.  I have two of the Revlon Lipglosses from over a year ago and I dont have a reaction to those so I was so surprised that my lips broke out & peeled (it also created patchy sore-like things on my top lip- once I stopped using it, the sores went away and have not come back- thank goodness!). not. a. fan.

 

but I was talked into trying another drugstore lippie by the ladies over on temptalia.  I just opened it after reading your post and put it on.  (crossing my fingers that it will be a good product for my sensitive lips). Smiley Happy

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

I hope it works for you! Rimmel London and burts bees lip shimmers are the *only* drugstore lipsticks that I am willing to spend money on. I tried a Revlon lipstick ages ago but it was soooo drying that I couldn't handle having it on. >_<

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

 

It looks more of a berry color than a pink pink (like the Love Spell or Pout) - to me anyway..

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

That pink color to me looks like my YSL lipstain in #19 . Just leaving you another option.Smiley Happy

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

ohhh, thanks! I have heard that stains are drying though (im trying to go with gentle and moisture). What are your thoughts beautylovingirl?

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

OK seriously this not being able to edit is making me mad! Anyway I meant to say the primrose color looks like my lip stain.

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

No the stains aren't drying to me and I have dry lips. I love them!

Re: Lipstick swap for sensitive lips

they look so posh. i added it to my shopping list (kind of a wish list). 

Oh, also, I dont think Im going to get Too Faced Naked Dolly for Mother's day. My husband hasnt even thought about it (so busy with work).  Oh well... Im more into the pinky pinks right now anyway so maybe I will get a gift card from him?
