Just a heads up to let you know my URL has changed to http://getlippie.com. It won't make any difference to you guys, but it made my inner geek happy today!
Unlike GOSH Darling lipstick, which I bought this afternoon. It makes me look like death. DEATH, I tell you. Worse than DEATH, in fact, look:
(apologies for the quality of the appalling iPhone picture)
Hmn, actually, that picture makes it look almost acceptable! Trust me, in the flesh, it looks like I've had a nasty accident in a lard'n'chalk factory. I think it's because my lips are quite highly pigmented naturally, and beige-ing them out just makes me look ill. For me, this shade is instant zombification. Inna stick. This is a very pale pinkish beige, and it's just far too cool a shade for me, I err on the side of caramel when it comes to "nude" shades. So, my search for the perfect nude lipstick goes on, can you make any recommendations? I will say this for it though, it feels more like a balm than a lipstick when you're wearing it. This is based on approximately 45 seconds wear though.
If you'd like the lipstick - I know it's a really popular shade for other people - please let me know in the comments. I bought it today, applied it once with a lipbrush, and fell into instant HATE. Doesn't happen often, but I always kick myself when it does.
