I'm calling it! You know the rules, wear a different lipstick every day this month. (I love this and look forward to it every year.) Has it been a year already? shock I've been buying make-up (again) and have some lippies I need to get through! I'm not wearing anything at the moment, that will change come morning though. smile

I'm quite tempted by some of these

darklady I have Urban Decay Afterdark, it's matte with shimmer, but sounds like what you're after, and Maybelline Berry Bossy came up as a dupe for MAC Rebel when I googled it. I have both of these (and Revlon Raspberry Bite, which is perfect but sadly discontinued!) I'm a sort of cheapskate though. smile

Greyhound Ooh, a challenge! I'll mooch round the internet and see what I can find!

Nice to see this thread is still going.

I bought a Burt bees tinted balm in a pinky colour and L’Oréal colour riche berry blush which is I think my new favourite.

Sainsbury’s have the maybelline Matt inks on sale at the moment for £7 each. I know there’s usually 3 for 2 deals going on maybelline but never seen them reduced - good if you only want one. I know the Lover is a favourite here and with me too.

I’ve lightened my hair since Jan, so it’s a good excuse to buy more lippies!

Oh thank you @Palominoo , that looks wonderful

Thedarklady -

Framboise Velours by Givenchy is lovely.

My darling lipstick queens, recommend me a nice lipstick, I'm willing to spend for the right shade/s.
I want dark fuschia, purply dark pink (magenta?), raspberry or dark hot pink and to to suit dark hair and fair, cool skintone.
Nars Shiap is too light
I like MAC Lickable (have already)
Mac Rebel sort of colour
YSL have some nice shades

Not a great image but only one I can find....

Greyhound22 Thu 07-Mar-19 20:26:05

Random alert.

Has anyone been watching Shakespeare and Hathaway. I'm after the exact same lip colour that Marlow wears - I think the MUA uses it on some of the rest of the cast too.

It's exactly what I'm after and can't find it anywhere! An orangy pink!

SapphireSeptember Thu 07-Mar-19 16:17:15

Ooh, that eyeshadow palette looks pretty! smile

I just liked being able to scribble on my face with a felt tip pen! grin But yes, they were very drying. Lip balm was my friend. smile

BusterGonad Wed 06-Mar-19 14:48:41

Oh and I loved the felt tip ones. They were so fun but sooooo drying! Ha ha. I use a touch of gloss over my stains and it looks so pretty!

BusterGonad Wed 06-Mar-19 14:46:49

Yeah I do Sapphire they are very similar but have the same applicator as a gloss. The first one by Etude House has amazing staying power! It's unreal. I also purchased an eyeshadow palette by The Balm today.

Somehow I didn't post my Temptalia link, oops! Kinda want Lucky In Love too, I don't think I've got anything like that in my (vast) collection.

Ooh, Buster, they look nice! smile I don't wear lipstains very often. Do you remember the felt tip pen ones? They were kinda fun. grin

BusterGonad Wed 06-Mar-19 10:31:29

Here they are, the first one is a pink/red, the second is a gorgeous wine colour, like a brown red, and the third is a bright pink. I love them!

BusterGonad Wed 06-Mar-19 10:27:12

I've been buying lip stains, like Benetint but Asian brands. I'm really pleased with them.

SapphireSeptember Wed 06-Mar-19 07:33:44

Drat! I can sympathise, I woke up with one this morning (and I've got a cold, so not helping!)
Still been buying lipsticks though, I got all 12 of the NYX midnight chaos lip-glosses, (two were broken though, I'm waiting for a refund so I can replace them.) They were half price too!

And I bought one of the MAC Lucky Red lipsticks. I went to the shop, swatched Lady Danger and had to have it, bonus is it's in really pretty packaging (I didn't even look at the others, which is a shame, Lotus Light looks really pretty.)

I think Temptalia has better swatches though, it look far more orange in real life!

How are all our lipstick lovers doing? I've got a massive cold sore so can't wear any at the moment angry

Vintagewannabe Fri 08-Feb-19 23:02:02

Oh I don’t find it too bad, doesn’t lastbery long though sad

Lottapianos Fri 08-Feb-19 16:16:12

That's a lovely colour Vintage, although I didn't get on with the formula. I found it weirdly drying for a product with 'butter' in the name!

Vintagewannabe Fri 08-Feb-19 15:48:59

Revlon lip butter in candy apple red today. After my very pink selfies I thought I’d go more red today lol

Lottapianos Thu 07-Feb-19 19:26:21

Ooh fab, thanks. Love No7

Vintagewannabe Thu 07-Feb-19 18:59:35

@lottapianos and @MyGastIsFlabbered it’s no7 stay perfect lipstick in raspberry silk. It is gorgeous and stays on all day

AnotherPinkiePieStory Thu 07-Feb-19 18:22:04

Great let’s continue.
I had an exam yesterday (awful professional thing) that really shook me and I expect to have to resit.
Wore a Maybelline lipstick and it rise to the occasion. Not wearing today as in sulk. Results in 2 weeks.

Someone asked me about how I did the selfies. I just lie back under light and then zoom in and crop!

MyGastIsFlabbered Thu 07-Feb-19 17:26:59

@Vintagewannabe the bottom left lipstick is divine. What is it?

BusterGonad Thu 07-Feb-19 16:18:01

Thanks Lotta in my haste to investigate it a accidentally chipped the end off with the lid! blushbut a quick wipe with a wet wipe and all is well again! Think I'll wear it tomorrow with a nude look and a touch of blush!

Lottapianos Thu 07-Feb-19 16:02:42

Buster, that's DIVINE

Vintage, which colour is in the bottom left corner? Looks like NARS Schiap....
