My friend Amelia was given a custom blend for her 30th birthday that was sold with proceeds to benefit our local AIDS network. However, it was so popular, it's been added as a regular color called "i'M Confident". http://impactcolorcosmetics.com/products.html#lips

I'm a pale blonde, with major pink undertones. However, I rock this color like nobody's business. She's an extremely fair brunette and it's her daily shade.

I have! Love it. The lipstick is a small tube, not the gargantuan sizes we buy now. I love whipping out the compact to use.

It's a gorgeous collection.

I've been on the hunt for a sheer red lipstick if anyone can recommend a brand? I've been using Burt's Bees tinted lip balm but I'm looking for something with a little more color but toned down at the same time for when I have time to actually sit in front of the mirror and put on lipstick.

I don't know if anyone has already mentioned this, but I do like the Revlon 'Just Bitten' range. The have two reds: flame which is a bright red and Gothic, which is a lot more intense. The thing I like about the whole range is that it's a very good lipstain and stays on for hours without drying out your lips and you can layer it to give a tint (bar the darker shades) or a more intense shade. The attached balm/gloss is quite good too. Might be what you need Retro_GI_Jane.

The only problem I have is that that the range is always pretty decimated when I try to buy it, especially in Boots. The high street stores over here never seem to have the whole Revlon lipstick range either.

That Mad Men range looks lovely! Anyone know if you can get it in the UK?

Right now my favorite is Revlon's Certainly Red, but I admittedly have an addiction to purchasing red lipstick, so I have a lot of favorites. I think I go through phases where I wear one all the time until I get tired of it.

I'm really hoping this will end up at our local Cosmetic Company Outlet (CCO's are owned by Estee Lauder, in case you don't know :)) -- I'll buy evvveeerything! Hahaha.

I don't know -- I disagree about those Just Bitten stains, I thought they apply very uneven and if you have any creases or bumps to your lips at all the colour will sink right in them. That's what it did to me! But then again, everything about makeup seems to be so individual! So hey, try it.

I'm loving MAC's Chili and I'm still loving the Chanel matte lipstick I bought fairly recently. The Chili is a great daytime red that doesn't turn fuchsia on me -- a common problem I have.

I've just recently picked up L'Oreal Paris' "British Red", and was very impressed! I have to say that it made even my thin lips pretty :p

Hey girls, I am trying to post a photo of me wearing Illamasqua Drench but I can't remember how to do it. Apologies if this doesn't work!

Ok, the process has changed since I last did it and for some reason it will not let me upload a pic from Picasa. How frustrating. The pic also includes my gorgeous baby who I was hoping to show off!

Hi sarabell, Once again feeling happy and proud to say that this is one of best question ever!!It is really difficult to find good brand name and shade for lipstick because every buddy want to used different and popular brand, may be this is the right place where there is something for everyone! Women have been staining their mouths red for centuries, maybe longer. Many women assume they can't wear it. They're wrong. Here we show you how. Darker shades, Cream or matte, Add a little shimmer, matching skin toner,mainly it wil be depend on your skin type ,makeup brushes,cosmetic cases,makeup case etc

I've just ordered Avon Extra Lasting Lipstick:

Any experience, like: [highlight]what to expect?[/highlight]
Reviews are divided: some liked it, some cursed it! [huh]
I'm baffled here, ladies.
Sam, make-up artist from Pixiwoo (they to marvelous looks on YouTube.. including LOTS of vintage-y ones) used it, and it looked awesome-red. And browsing the net, I saw a girl whose lips were.. "Morticia-Addams-just-had-some-wine" red.
:help:

Today's lipstick is Besame in Besame Red. I bought it yesterday and I'm loving it so far. Long lasting but not as drying as I find MAC lipsticks.

And.. it came yesterday:

It is NOT dark at all. :heh:
Gal on the picure made me think it'll turn into some "deep-red-wine" shade when I put it on, but it's not. It's REAL red, with a slightly blue undertone. On me, it looks good. It's mattifying, and gives me "vintage lip" feel.
Only flaw: there's so little of it in the tube. [huh]

I'm into Mary Kay's Midnight Red. It's a very soft red color. It blends nicely into lips. The shade is perfect for darker skin tones.

Is it my imagination, or are MAC lipsticks drier now than they were a couple years ago? I still love MAC, but sometimes I'll mix it up with Besame (I, too, love Besame Red) just so I don't feel like I have a desert on my face!
