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. πŸ™‚

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

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

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

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.

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?

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!
