    I neglected my lips for a couple of years during school and starting off in my career but recently rediscovered my love of colourful lips!

    I usually wear peaches or pinks but with the fall trend of vampy lips I actually purchased the new Dazzleglass creme Amorous with Portside cremestick pearl liner and WOW! Its not an everyday look but its fun to dabble

  2. Yup, either bright bubblegum pink or very dark purple usually.

    In high school I used to be known for my red lipstick- Revlons Certainly Red and Viva Glam I were my favourites. I wore red lips almost everyday and felt so glamorous!

    But then I moved to a town where its constantly windy. If I tried to wear lipstick Id have streaks of red going across my cheek where my hair dragged as I moved it out of my face. So, I guess my answer is: I would if I could (and when I can I do) but here its not a good idea. :3

    Whee, that was a long answer. :P

    I love bold lips, especially hot pink and lilac colours. I have these big sausage lips and I like to show them off; however, I was made fun of when I was younger because I have big lips.

    Bold lips are fantastic – when it balances the rest of the look. Lets face it – a smokey eye and a vampy lip together can be overkill, while a pale eye and a nude lip can wash you out. Theres a time for light and dark, deep and bright, matte and sparkley, intense and muted. What you wear to a fitness class wont be what you wear out on the town after you shower and change! Theres a place for just about everything.

    Once a week I like to mixes thing up and go for bold lip instead of eyes. I usually go with dark red lip with MAC Viva Glam III or deep grenat of Guerlain. Im trying right now to integrate the lipgloss Aarons red of Lancome in the rotation. It is harder with bold lip, it need more maintenance, i always need to reaply lipstick every 2-3 hrs so thats why it is only once a week :)

    I rarely wear bold lips, because dark lipstick makes my mouth appear even smaller and I feel like its not very flattering concerning the shape of my face…sometimes I like it though, but its certainly not for everyday.

    I love wearing bold colors – reds or fuschias, but not often.
    I like to play up my small eyes, and of course cant do both at once…
    I just LOVE lipstick, period!

    Rarely. I’m a lipgloss freak and I stick to nudey and pinky colors most of the time. I’m a dramatic eye person for sure…every day all day.

    I use to love and I mean LOVE wearing Red lipstick when I was 16-17 I guess to feel older and now I love having smoky eyes and a nude glossy lip instead.

  11. Not every day but I love reds and berry shades, and also deep browns or bronze.

  12. Hi there. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Creme D Nude, but there are those days when I need to pull out my Vegas Volt or Cockney. I appreciate both looks:)

    My lips are naturally pigmented so duller colors that tone them down just look odd and out of place. Plus, bold lips make even the most natural eye look glamorous and put together.

    I use a bold lip to offset my neutral eyes. (I don’t know how to use eyeshadow >>) So for my lips, I usually go for hot pinks, Barbie pinks, bubblegum pinks, blue-based pinks– you get the idea that I <3 pink, lol. And I love, love, love LOVELORN!!

  15. Helena

    I actually wore Midnight Media (Style Black mattene) today, so, yes :)

    My lips are rrrreeeeddddd, and plump, so everything looks like a bold lip on me. I always try to tone them down, but theres only so much I can do.. which is not much! Im always envious of women with lighter lips bc it gives you options.

      try using a lip erase
      MAC sells a good one
      I have the same problem too, and i use myth lipstick and it really helps tone down the pigment in my lips

    Honestly, rarely because I prefer to do a bolder eye look. I want people to look at my eyes so I can read and understand them better. I usually go with a relatively light to medium lip colored lip in nude, pink, coral or raspberry.

  18. I try to, but I always seem to smear it before I even leave the house. LOL!
