I got a bit behind on the last thread because of work and being ill and getting distracted by stuff. I still need to get my list and pictures of my lippy stash done, (I did some of it, but need to crack on with the rest...) I wore this little gem today, Revlon Copper Chrome, (not to be confused with Copper Frost Chrome, which is more pinky.) Comparison swatches below. This lippy came all the way from Australia! (CF, not CFC, I got that from the Boots in Peterborough.) It's so pretty, I know I'm going to use this a lot in the autumn.

Thanks for the new thread Sapphire!
Here's the old thread.

Lottapianos, I passed through a duty free on Sunday and could not resist - I'm now an owner of YSL Rouge Couture Pur #1. It is fabulous and I've worn it all week. Thanks for the tip!💄❤

MAC's new lipstick collection! ❤ Some of these colours have got my name on them! (I'm pretty sure Matte Royal is a relaunch as I've wanted it for a while.)

This is their collection from last year, (trying to find pictures or blog posts of all 29 was nigh on impossible, hence the video.) I want the bright pink shimmery one!

Speaking of videos, those Esscence Matt Matt Matt lipsticks I've been raving about, they are Tati approved! 😍

Thanks for the new thread Sapphire! Hope your feeling better? Tati & Sharon fab. smile

I've been wearing brighter lipsticks. Dialled down the eyes. Dior 'Ready' has been a firm favourite. Chuffed picked up Make Up Forever lipstick in TKMaxx £4.99 Rouge Artist Natural N47. Wearable & staying power.

I've been wearing YSL #1 non stop but will pick something lighter tomorrow.

Hello Bubbles and Frustrated!

Bubbles I am feeling better, thank you. smile No lippy today, I stayed in all day and didn't get around to it. <sigh> However, I did get my (<whispers> very expensive^) lippies in the post today. Revlon Garnet Chrome, which was discontinued and is very rare...(So ^so worth it though, it's beautiful!)

BusterGonad Fri 03-Mar-17 20:10:18

Oh....Garnet Chrome looks lovely.

SapphireSeptember Fri 03-Mar-17 21:03:31

Italics fail there...

It is Buster, I've tried it on and I love it...I'm flippin addicted to Revlon at the moment, I've bought quite a few different shades recently, filling in gaps in my collection. Cocoa bronze and Chocolate velvet are in my sights next, (both discontinued, both in the range of spending about twice what I would in Boots, plus P&P from the USA*. blush But I have bought ones that are lot cheaper than RRP, so I think of it as swings and roundabouts.)
*Good thing about this ebay seller is the extortionate P&P charges come with customs services so I don't get stung with extra taxes.
I talk about make up WAY too much. grin

I've finished a bright magenta pink lipstick, Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Exuberante. I love using things up and my next project will be Max Factor Raisin, a sheer slightly metallic pinkish red.

FrustratedFrugal Wed 08-Mar-17 19:08:22

Garnet looks really lovely - 💄envy

Mary Greenwell has a photo of Jessica Chastain on her instagram with the most amazing pink lipstick.

SapphireSeptember Wed 08-Mar-17 21:57:01

Frustrated grin Sorry for giving you lipstick envy. Yay, empties!

Chardonnay Have you got a link please? I don't think I know who either of those women are. blush

FrustratedFrugal Thu 09-Mar-17 16:32:58

Lipstick goeals #1 and #2 from Mary Greenwell's instagram 💖

FrustratedFrugal Thu 09-Mar-17 16:36:23

Goals, fgs wink

I had a good lipstick day. Wore YSL #1. Felt powerful, chaired a difficult meeting successfully, and got compliments from a semi stranger. If you need a power red, this is it.

FrustratedFrugal Thu 09-Mar-17 16:39:44

YSL Rouge Couture Pur #1 in action!

ChardonnayKnickertonSmythe Thu 09-Mar-17 18:15:10

Thanks Frugal, that's the one.
The one on the right is an hourglass one, and the pink one on the left is just perfection.

sammy891 Fri 10-Mar-17 09:43:35

Another lipstick addict here, would love to join in! LOTD is Mac Cosmo, haven't worn it in ages but its a perfect everyday pink.

FrustratedFrugal Sun 12-Mar-17 11:09:03

I found a long-lost lipstick in the pocket of a jacket that has not been worn much. It's Kiko Velvet Mat 606 in Fire Red and I have worn it for a few days. A really great budget lipstick.

seefeld Sun 12-Mar-17 18:50:10

Oh wow I love those Jessica Chastain pics! Gorgeous lipstick colours. Does anyone know what they are? I want a new lipstick for spring!

seefeld Sun 12-Mar-17 19:07:48

Ah just looked it up on Instagram which is what I should've done to begin with, sorry.

Second one is Hourglass Explorer, the first wasn't named on there.

ChardonnayKnickertonSmythe Sun 12-Mar-17 19:11:03

If anyone has an idea about the pink one, please let me know.

ChardonnayKnickertonSmythe Sun 12-Mar-17 19:14:27

The second one, which is Hourglass Explorer looks also very much like Nars Mayflower, which I've been wearing yesterday.

SapphireSeptember Mon 13-Mar-17 19:07:11

Does anyone else remember the trend for sheer moisturising lipsticks? There were Revlon lip butters, L'Oreal rouge caresse, Maybelline color whispers (which never made it to the UK but beauty bloggers from the USA raved about) and Bourjous rouge edition shine, and probably a few others. It's weird how I remember this stuff. Anyway, I bought two of the L'Oreal ones way back and only ever tried one (impulsive fuchsia), so I wore the other one yesterday, which is cheeky magenta. It's not my usual in your face, obnoxious bright pink, but I like it and it's really shiny. I wore it with pale grey matte eyeshadow and sparkly black eyeliner and thought the combination looked really pretty.

Thank you for the pictures FrustratedFrugal! That lipstick you're wearing looks lovely!

sammy The more the merrier! smile

ChardonnayKnickertonSmythe Mon 13-Mar-17 19:22:18

Funny that, Saphire, I think that's the one I had on today, Rouge Caresse in Fuchsia.
