I'm looking for alternatives to the House of Colour no 50 Lipstick. My toddler has smeared it all over the room and I can't really afford to buy another one.

What season are you & what's the colour called?

I'm a sprinter winter and the colour is called Soft Burgundy Rose.

Sorry I'm hijacking the thread to day hello to bittersweet. I'm a sprinter winter too and I've never met another before!

There's a website listing make up by lots of brands for all the seasons, 'true winter' lipsticks are:

Lipstick: Really, personal preference. Some people will want a nude look, and others will love their fuschias and hot pinks. Never outline your lips in a dark ring. Check YSL for lots of great Winter colours.

Revlon: Colorburst Fuschia
Lancome: Rouge in Love 379N, 185N, Berry Noire, Lychee Gloss
Chanel: Provocative, Fatale
Mac: Lickable, Plumful, Rebel, Quite the Thing
Nars: Scarlet Empress, Schiap
Cover Girl: Hottie
Stila: Phenomenal, Fuschia
YSL: Fetish Pink
Dior: Addict Perfecto, Rose Shocking
L'oreal: Glamshine 179

website here, I don't find it easy to navigate but the info is fab!

Hi Queen Cardigan. It took the HOC lady ages to diagnose me, did your HOC person have any problems with you? I get the impression that Sprinters aren't as common as other winters.

Thanks Chewbecca that link is great and really helpful. I'm not much of a makeup person so I've been struggling.

I loved reading this thread. I had my colour analysis done on Saturday and I am a sprinter winter. I don't normally wear any make-up so was quite shocked with the colour of the lipstick given as my neutral - it was HofC 714 (pink) it is in the summer colours and not winters as apparently there is not a neutral for Sprinter Winters. Do you have any other ideas?
