okay, so I have a darker lip color and it is really hard to fin d a pale pink or a nude color that look good without looking pastie or being so sheer that it doesn't event look like im wearing anything except gloss. I went to Mac and got a gloss but it isnt long lasting and it s nude that still isnt what i was looking for. Any thought.??
Hey Ammipoo, this is Morgan. (:
Well, I personally love my Mac Viva Glam Gaga 2 lipstick, and applied with a peachy gloss and a light hand it can really be very subtle if that’s what you’re looking for. It is also very buildable, so if you wanted a dramatic nude lip it would be ideal for that too. I have very light skin so I’ll have Samantha answer this question later too because she has a more olive tone. But I definitely recommend you give that a shot, and remember a light hand! I like to blend it with my pinkie before I put on gloss.
It is also for a good cause, I believe all of the proceeds, if not a good bit of it goes to the MAC AIDS fund. It also comes in a gloss! The lipstick is about 15 dollars, and you can buy it here: http://www.maccosmetics.com/whats_new/4800/index.tmpl
I might also recommend trying some of the nude shades in the Revlon Lip Butter line that everyone is raving about?
I hope this helped, let me know what you find!
So I definitely think you should try the Mac Pro Longwear Lipglass. I always put some on before work, and it stays until the end of my 8 hour shift. It is also almost like a lipstick because it is definitely not sheer. My go to pale/pink from that line is Inifinitely Likable, I think it would be good with your skin tone, since I have more olive/tan complexion like you. If not, you can always try Show Me! From the Pro Longwear, which is a nude but not as pasty pink. You also should try the Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brule. It is pigmented enough to cover the darkness in your lips. The only down side is that you would have to re-apply every 30 minutes-2 hours depending on what you are doing. Also, Neutrogena has a tinted lip balm in Soft Caramel which is also good and has decent coverage & Rimmel has a pretty nude/pink lipstick called Airy Fairy which I would say would be the best lipstick for your skin tone.
I really hope this helped you!
