I love doing a super-vampy look by putting Buxom Lips in ‘Lana’ over Kat Von D’s Painted Love lipstick in ‘Homegirl’. It really brings out dark pink and red blush shades on my skin, making me look almost like a punky porcelain doll.

that’s an awesome l/g. i have mine and that color is opaque.

mine is a bit of a secret:

it consists of: Shu RD 190 + a red l/g which i won’t mention + shu red l/l.

Im a big fan of the bright orange-red look, like MAC Lady Danger. Otherwise, another fave bold lip is MAC Impassioned.

For a dark bold I like Show Orchid l/s and Magnetique l/g. For a bright bold I like Saint Germain l/s with Delicate Crush l/g. All MAC BTW. 🙂

– Mac Dubonnet topped with either Blackfire or Bligblack glimmerglasses
– Mac Cyber topped with Illamasqua Galaxy lipgloss (the result being less scary than it sounds)

I love brights! At the moment I love Illamasqua Scandal, Revlon Strawberry Suede, MAC You Say Tomato Mattene, Lady Danger, Vegas Volt. Second Lady Bug as an easy-to-wear bright red.

I’ve never quite *loved* Show Orchid as much as everyone else seems to – the shimmer gets on my nerves and I don’t think the staying power is great.

I like either deep reds like Viva Glam I or berry colors like Blood Red from the DSquared collection 🙂

MAC Magenta lipliner and Girl About Town lipstick. I wore it for Halloween not caring if it was real life pretty but it actually really was!

For a super bright pink I like Stila’s pink lip enamel from the Barbie collection (I think “Giggle” is the same shade.)

My fave vampy look is Urban Decay Lip Gunk in Kiss or Chanel Scarlet lipstick.

For the ulitimate red pout I’d go with Illamasqua lipstick in Maneater or Box! These make your lips pop off your face!

I can seriously go on for days, I adore lip products.

Mac Ruby Woo, Russian Red, Utter Fun, Red full stop…Dior’s Rouge Lipstick in their fuschia color. (gosh my spelling er).

So many. I wear bold lips a lot, probably more than I should lol

Magenta lip liner lined and brought into center of lip with Morange in center topped with spring bean. Yowzer!!!

MAC Ruby Woo with bareEscentuals Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish in Holly

(worn Christmas Eve, with lots of pizazz!)

I love MAC Show Orchid for a punchy fun lip and Armani’s Rouge d’Armani no. 400 for a bold retro red look

Girl About Town l/s with Creme Allure d/g
Nars Funy Face w/ YSL Pure Fuschia Gloss Pur
MAC Russian Red l/s with Mac Cult of Cherry l/g
YSL Forbidden Burgandy l/s

I have a new bold lip combo. A mac MUA tried this last december: (NC42 skintone) Lipliner Currant and l/g decorative.I love it, but really have to motivate me to pull this off 😉

Laura Mercier Cranberry or Shu Uemura Pink Venus are both wonderfully bold in their own ways.

I really love how MAC Hang Up looks too, but it’s drying enough on my lips that I just don’t wear it anymore. =/

Shiseido Automatic Lip Crayon in LC3 (a fuscia) topped with Clinique Black Honey Almost Lipstick (to add a more berry tone)

I love Nars Jungle red. line and cover with the liner, then just once over with the lipstick. It’s such an eye popping matte vampy red.

I like violetta l/s with oversexed plushglass. or MAC vivaglam III l/s with the VI lipglass VERY dark red 🙂
