  1. I’ve just recently started wearing red lipstick & I’m loving it! I used to be just a nude lip kind of girl, but I’m slowly venturing out into trying bright lips. I wear a bright lip every now & then. :)

  2. Casey

    Bright colored lipsticks are sooo much fun but some are WAY too bright for me.

  3. Melissa

    yes! love them red lipstick is my signature look!
    I wear bright pink sometimes but nothing like blue or anything :)

  4. Meesh

    Depends on what look I’m going for I guess, but I love a good bright coral/orangy-pink esp. cause it’s spring!

  5. isis

    I love wearing HOT pinks. Anime lip tar, YSL Rouge Volupte in Provocative Pink and Mac Gladiola are my faves :)

  6. I like bright lip glosses, but bright lipsticks tend scare me off. I love orange right now.

  7. I love playing around with bright colors,
    love the hot pinks, reds, corals && oranges!!!
    They’re such pretty colors to wear. = )
    But i still love my nudes and light pinks as well it all depends on the over all look Im going for.

  8. Ryan

    YES! Thats all I wear!
    Sorry but I just cant force myself to look dull d=

    I love them :) My current favs are MAC’s Show Orchid and Russian Red.

  10. I don’t wear bright lip colors all that often. I’m more of a dramatic eyes + nude lips kinda gal!

  11. addie

    i gravitate towards brighter lipsticks and glosses but after i bring it home i verry rarely wear them because i do verry brightly colored eyes so i stick with a really nude lip most times…exept for when i wear red lipstick with a vintage look, thats always hot! lol

    My lips are pretty pigmented and the light lipsticks never show up on me ;/
    any tips on how besides a lipliner?
    and what bright colors would be good on an nc35 like me?

  13. I used to wear bright eyeshadow all the time but now I’m all about brown eyeshadow with bright lips.

  14. geri~

    I love bright colours! But I only wear them on the wkends or maybe after work~

  15. I love bright lips, but I generally forget about them, I do “eye-focus” looks a whole lot more often :s

  16. depends on the look, but yes i do wear bright lipcolors. i think a t least once or twice a week.

  17. Sarah M

    Hell yeah!!! Bright colours are definitely my thing. Love them. :-D

  18. Ashley

    I love bright lip colors! I wear them all the time =D I love true reds and bright fuchsias!

  19. All the time.

    If i don’t feel up to the FULL brightness, I just rub a little lipstick on my hand, put a dollop of clear gloss near it, use a used wand to blend them and apply it over Hue, phlox or Cherish(my favorite “nude” colors) for a sheer wash of the brighter tone. Using an old wand prevents pigment from getting in the clear gloss!
    But yeah, I actually tend to avoid wearing pale or nude lips. So I wear everything from bright red, to bright pink, coral, orange, plum, even “goth-y” dark colors. But then, I have strong lips, and with my face shape, I NEED a lot of color in them to balance out any strong eye makeup. So the defined shape of my lips looks better with a bright clear line, and my face looks better with some contrast to my(also) prominant eyes.

    definitely! One of my favorite is Sephora’s Lip Attitude in Chic. Absolutely gorgeous bright fuschia/purple color. Plus it smells great!

  21. Lately I’m becoming addicted to bright lipsticks! I’ve just bought YSL Rouge Volupté lipstick in Rose Paris and I absolutely love it! *-*

  22. Kitty Kris

    I love me some bright bold lipsticks… My faves are MAC’s Hollywood Nights, Show Orchid and Trimming Talk.

  23. Kerry

    i hardly ever wear them but i love them :D

  24. Hend

    Maybe once or twice a week ..
    I love bright corals and hot pinks ..
    but for my everyday makeup nude lips mostly

  25. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Jill AnGeLwInGz

    I look horriffic in bright lip colors! Gimme a soft pink or coral any day.

  26. sonia

    There is nothing like a perfect red lip, and I love that I have the skin tone to wear it.

  27. Rosie

    I do like bright lip colors but like you don’t wear them often enough :). I think I’ll pull them out this summer or when I’m done with student teaching in mid May.

  28. As long as it goes with my make up I don´t mind.

  29. Marina

    Nope. I do buy them, though :D and keep them safely :D

  30. Not really! I feel like bright lips look odd on me. I usually wear natural pinkish lip products. My brightest lipsticks are mac sweetie and viva glam vi se!

  31. Diana

    No…I like to keep all the focus on my eyes and go for a nude lip. But after the round up of all the pink lipsticks I might have to get more into the pinks.

  32. Yes, I do wear bright lip colours, although not as bright as I’d like for two reasons: one is that I tend to wear colourful eye make up a lot, so can’t go mad with the lips, and two is that I usually only go on school runs and to the shops, so a really bright lip might look out of place. But I definitely wear color on my lips all the time, depending on what I manage to grab in the mornings, usually either lipstick or lipgloss.

  33. amy

    I love wearing bright lip colours because it is much easier and faster than to wear bright colour eyeshadow. I really like to emphasize my lips as well. My favourite is hot pinks.

  34. I wear bright lipsticks everywhere. To go grocery shopping, dinners, dates, to go jogging, pretty much every day.
    My favorite bright lipstick has to be girl about town.

    It makes me stand out and be different :)

  35. Leea

    There are some people who can absolutely rock a red or a bright lipstick,
    but I don’t think I’m one of them : )
    For my lips, I tend to go far more neutral or just use a lip balm or a nude, light pink lipstick, like Phlox or Plink! from mac.

  36. Nic

    I love bright lip colors, and I feel comfortable wearing them. I only don’t end up wearing them very often because, more often than not, I tend to wear more dramatic eye makeup – in which case I usually keep the lips toned down.

  37. I seem to buy so many bright fuchsia lipsticks, though I rarely wear them. I got MAC Petals & Peacocks lately and it’s pure LOVE.

  38. I can’t help but love to wear bright lips.

    For bright pinks:
    MAC Show Orchid
    Morgana Minerals Azalea Blue or Azalea

    Yes, every now and then I do a simple gold or neutral eye (like today, heh!), soft glowy cheeks and them a bright pink or red lipstick.

    Today I am wearing Elizabeth Arden Exceptional lipstick in Pink Vibration (which is quite possibly the pinkest lipstick on this planet) lightly blotted and then Jordana matte lipstick in Raphael over the top to warm it up a bit.

    It’s pretty bright. :-)

    And I’ve just made up my mind to wear bright red tomorrow!

  40. I love love love MAC’s Show Orchid & Pink Neaveou. The latest colour to my collection is Vegas Volt, its a great colour for Spring/Summer day wear!

  41. lazeny

    I love bright colors, I stick to orange, coral, and occasional red lipstick. My favorite is Guerlain Corail Passion, Mango Fizz and Shu Uemura RD 165.

  42. nope, never.
    my lips are wayyy to big to wear anything bold…
    i stick to light pinks and neutrals.
    plus i have braces, if i wear anything to bold its way way way to much…
    although these past few weeks ive been wearing lip liner, and its amazing what it can do..
    my almost everyday lip combo is
    mac lip liner in spice
    mac lipstick in angel
    mac lipglass in nymphette
