Temptalia Asks You

What’s your favorite lipstick to wear to feel good? Is it all about a bold, red lip? Dark and vampy? Light and playful pink?

Temptalia's Answer.

I probably like to go for a really fun pink–nothing hot fuchsia pink, but nothing totally nude. Something like Sweetie lipstick and a nice, iridescent lipgloss on top — maybe Palatial lustreglass!

    I like to wear MAC push up plum.I don’t wear it too often since it was a LE. I just makes my lips look nice and plump.

  8. pia

    Mac Ruby woo ! I’m all for bright and bold lips

  9. Meagan

    MAC Lickable (and if I want to feel extra special, Petite Indulgence on top to make ’em super shiny)

  10. Viv

    any ysl rouge volupte l/s they are amazing.

    • Rachel

      I totally second that, Viv! I love the YSL Rouge Voluptes.

      Recently I’ve been reaching for Most Popular lipstick from the Hello Kitty Collection – I pair it with Sweet Strawberry lipstick.

  11. hannah

    clinique almost lipstick in black honey. never fails to do the trick. it instantly brightens up my face… and it’s also moisturizing!

  12. jtxy

    wow, i was just going to say sweetie too!

  13. Inky

    red. Mac Russian Red, Ruby Woo, a few Sephora reds, and most recently the Ponytail red from the 1959 Stila Barbie can. It’s smooth and moist while not being to shiny. I love the matte lips.

  14. Tekoa

    I’d say Lady Danger with Instant Gold on top. . Man, I cannot feel bad wearing red lipstick.

  15. MAC Port Red! It makes me feel like a movie siren from my favorite classic movies.

    • aradhana

      i second that!
      my bf says it makes me look like an advert for lipstick…how can that not make a girl feel good?

  16. Kayc

    MAC Creme In Your Coffee (great MLBB shade) with Boy Bait lipglass on top.

  17. nicole

    my favorite would have to be ysl nude biege

  18. I don’t wear lipstick, it would have to be M.A.C’s PlushGlass in fullfilled. :) x

  19. love

    Fresh Brew!

  20. Macaddict

    Any red or orange! Russian Red, Rubi Woo, Red She Said, Morange, So Chaud and MakeUp Forever #201 l/s (deep orange)to name a few!

  21. Rachel

    Shu Uemura Red 165 lipstick.

  22. Donna

    Lately it has been Strayin l/s with Sonic Vibe lipglass on top.

  23. CeeBee

    A pretty creamy pink is always good! Estee Lauder Crystal Pink, Dior Addict in Rose Vision or (my current favourites!) Chi Chi Viva la Diva lipsticks in either Nine to Five or Society Snob.
    Beautiful creamy texture, good coverage, moisturizing and smell like Turkish Delight!

  24. Heidi

    anytime i wear lipstick its usually a light beige it tends to look best on me.

  25. msviolet

    MAC Up The Amp topped with Little VI…it’s purple but it’s fun on days when I’m not excited about getting up and going to class. :)

  26. Laudry

    — “MAC Red” – thought I couldn’t wear red ’til I tried this. (Makes me feel confident, too.)

    — MAC “Hollywood Nights,”(HEATHERETTE collection). Somehow, this particular hot pink lights up my eyes, makes my washed-out skin look pale & luminous – & makes me happy!

    — MAC “Viva Glam II” Perfect nude, for feeling happy, serene.

  27. Christy

    To make myself feel oh so so so special I’ll use Victoria’s Secret diamond lip gloss with real crushed diamond dust in it. They’re limited edition and so spectacular on, they challenge Dazzleglass in intensity of sparkle and shine. Diamond’s are a girls best friend! =)

  28. nancy s

    Laura Mercier Creme in Rose… I’m trying to find a similar color in Mac but its sooo hard.

  29. Liana

    Mac Angel with pretty plush plushglass on top.

  30. Skyler

    MAC Russian Red! Didn’t even have to think about that one. 😉 Every woman should own it.

  31. kat

    MAC 3n
    and, this may sound weird but…
    wet n’ wild’s 514a (it’s the most beautiful shade of blue based red with shimmer! great for my olive skin tone! and it’s .99!)

  32. Leah

    MAC Rebel lipstick with a bit of lark about pigment in the center. It makes me feel futuristically glam!

  33. Carla

    Barbie loves MAC real doll! I’m trying to find a substitute. So far no color beats this one.

  34. Color: MAC’s Strayin’ (HK), or BE’s Rose Crepe
    Slight tint: Covergirl LipSlicks Flirtatious, or BE’s Eva buxom polish
    Gloss: BE’s April diamond buxom, or MAC’s Big Bow (HK)

  35. Cece

    I luv, luv, luv boy bait from MAC cremesheen. I pair it up with creme cup or HK fresh brew lipstick and it comes out perfect with my complexion (NC45). Pale browny-pinks make me happy :)

  36. I really want to win this. I am waiting for the Romance presentation.

  37. Janet Chaney

    My favorite–for over 25 years!–is clinique raspberry glace. I buy others or get free Lancome and always go back to it. It’s the perfect blue tone berry for me–makes me happy!

  38. rowan

    seriously rich mattene

  39. My favorite lipstick of all time is MAC’s Peachstock. I’m a huge fan of nude lips and Peachstock is by far the most opaque and prettiest nude on me. Since it has a peachy undertone to it, it doesn’t wash me out.

  40. abby

    girl about town and 2nd favourite is russian red.

  41. Something colourful but not graish. Mac Strawberry Blonde lipstick is my alltime favourite and it cheers me up because I just love the colour so much. Plus the Vanilla scent of mac lipsticks is so yummy!

  42. Arika BH

    Im NC42 and if I really want to feel confident I wear Classic Dame from the LE Mattene collection. I also love to wear Strayin from HK. Its also great and vibrant. It’s just a bit lower maintenance.

  43. Andrea

    Can I even say High Strung? I just LOVE frosty lips.

  44. Nic

    MAC Russian Red – with Russian Red lipglass, usually. :)

  45. Angie

    A bright red or hot pink!

  46. cherry

    my favorite for now is MAC speak louder with NYX smokey look lipgloss on top, it creates a hot glossy pink lips!

  47. For me it’s Please Me or Creme Cup from MAC

  48. Valerie

    If i feel badass I’ll wear Girl About Town but if i feel “innocent” i’ll wear Angel :)

  49. hippona

    Reds make me feel happy. Nars Drangon girl Velvet matte pencil and MAC Lady Danger are my faves.

  50. Jody

    Mac’s Fun Fun is my favorite lipstick!! Please Mac repromote this! Does anyone know a dupe for this? Is Real Doll similar? I have 2 back ups and I keep trying not to use it but it is the bomb!!

  51. Katarina

    A bold red lip makes me feel most like me! I have a bunch but NARS “f

  52. Nathalie

    During a long long while it has been Chanel Aqualumi

  53. migzy

    definitely creme cup!

  54. elle

    I don’t have a favourite l/s as yet but I do have a favourite l/g- Possum Nose Red. It shows up really well on me and its just such a gorgeous colour.
