someone was singing praises of quite a cheap crayon type lip colour. I have no luck with lips cos I have yellower teeth than ideal (not stained, natural colour) and cant wear lipstick. so I go for gloss which is gone before I leave the house. This sounded like a nice neutral easy to apply and wear big crayon with some staying power. any ideas? think they bought it in boots or similar ratger than a counter

Could it be this? I have it and staying power is excellent

Clinique chubby stick?


eggybrokenoff Tue 22-Apr-14 20:55:08

I really recommend the Boots no 7 ones.

I have delicate pink and statement.

The Revlon just bitten balm in Honey is a lovely neutral. Don't get the Rimmel, it has a really drying texture.

Try Revlon lip butter in pink truffle - universally flattering IMO. Lippy for people who don't do lippy.

Was it MUA Power Pout? These are cheap as chips and really lovely.

Boots 17 superstar?

The Rimmel one I mentioned a while ago and was a dupe for a mac lipstick. Might not be good for you might make your teeth yellow. It was called something like Use your Illusion. Had illusion in the name anyway. But they have other colurs too.Hard to read the names on them so look them up.

I agree about the Revlon pink truffle being a great sheer colour but it has no staying power at all.

The Revlon one that Gillybobs linked to is great. There are a few neutral colours - one called Elusive I think is really nice here

eggybrokenoff Thu 24-Apr-14 07:07:29

these look great. i really struggle with lippy. I tend to get confused and try colours that I think look nice in the stick cos I have no idea what suits me. I have pink tones skin but very cream/yellow teeth. I naturally lean towards neutral browny colours but wonder if that is wrong and why it always looks dreadful

Don't go for anything brown coloured then, no matter how natural. Go for soething with some blue in it. So a cooler colured pink for instance.

PotatoPolly Thu 24-Apr-14 07:27:34

Primark have started doing their own version of the Clinique Chubby Stick for £1.50 (ish) that's really good grin

70isaLimitNotaTarget Thu 24-Apr-14 11:58:17

Oooh yes stay away from brown/neutrals.

Why not buy a pallette of lip colours (Superdrug will have tons) and mix a few. You might need a pink bordering on fuschia .

Disclaimer: not a lippie wearer myself

a lip palette is a genius idea! would never have thought of that ever. this is why mn is brilliant
