I'm going to try those combos. I'm really curious to try Radiate + Anime.

 

My Radiate and Black Dahlia were delivered yesterday. They're so pretty. Radiate looks different on me than I've seen in swatches. It looked like it was going to be more of a red coral, but it leans more of an orange coral. I like that it's a different coral from Queen (pink coral) and Harlot (red coral). I'd say Radiate fits right in the middle of those two colors. Black Dahlia is such a beautiful red-burgundy wine color. It's not at all as dark as it looks in the tube. I'll probably have to line my lips with MAC Nightmoth or NYX Black Berry lip pencils to get a color like it looks in the tube.

I have a small army of those mini brushes now, but I still like getting them. I see it like a GWP. I'm only using 2 of them. One for when I'm swatching/applying colors and to use for travel, the second one as a nail brush to clean up my manicures. I store all of the other brushes in the little pouches that the Lip Tars come in. I can fit 4 brushes in 1 pouch.

 

That's a great idea!

I have no clue which colors to get so many to chose from. Any suggestions you guys might have would help. I have dark hair and eyes NC 40/42 in mac foundations. What are your must have colors?

I want to get Radiate next, I don't want it to look like Hibiscus by MAC since I have 2 of those. I forgot to check Sephora when I was in NYC to see it. I'm going back soon, so I will look at it then.

Stalker, Strumpet, Queen, Harlot. I don't think you could go wrong with any of the colors. It's just a matter of what colors you like to wear. Most of the lip tars are very universal. Black Dahlia is my favorite, its a beautiful red/deep dark purple that's on the cool side.

I agree with sss215. My favorites are Belladonna, Hoochie, Black Dahlia, Anime, Strumpet, Queen, Harlot, Radiate, Banjee, NSFW and Stalker. I also like Butch and Rx for mixing purples. If you're able to get a set, that would probably be best. That way you get a variety of colors at a discount and a full size lip brush.

I'm adding Sybil to my to-buy list. I was going to pass on it at first. It's just brown so it didn't interest me. The swatches I've seen of it also didn't excite me. Then I saw a YouTube video of a WOC wearing it. It looked gorgeous on her.

I have Sybil and it's a favorite of mine.  On my lips it has a strong red hue so it doesn't look muddy.  It's everything I wanted MAC Chestnut to be.  It doesn't seem to be as matte as Black Dahlia therefore doesn't last quite as long, but it still last longer than your average lipstick.  It's my "neutral" with a pop because it goes with just about everything.   Report back when you get it.

I will. I'm planning to get it in January. Now I'm even more excited to get it after your comments. I have Chestnut and like it, so Sybil must be really pretty if you're saying it's better than Chestnut.

Thank you so much you guys :)

I got my sephora order today and Harlot is my second favorite lip tar! It's a beautiful color that I thought would need work for me to pull it off; nope, it applies flawlessly and doesn't pull orange like I thought it would by being a red coral. The red in it must be a blue toned red cause those are the only reds that work for me. It's stunning and makes a great stain. I'm getting a backup.
Queen, I have to work with. It's lighter straight out the tube than what I would have preferred. Aside from mixing it with Stalker, I am going to mix a little with Black Dahlia to see what I get.

I have to find that vid. Sybil is on my list too.

Queen + Black Dahlia sounds really pretty. Here's the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-MZ3fHiJOk

post #372 of 1470
Thanks!

I tried Queen with Black Dahlia and it was pretty, but I doubt I am going to want to mix Queen and BD all of the time I want to wear Queen, cause I love BD too much. I am going to return it for another color.

What are your undertones? I'm trying to find what type of reds work best for me. Deeply Adored looks perfect, but others seem off to me. (Some of that could be me being not used to it.) 

post #374 of 1470

Miss TT, what is your shade? I may be able to help a bit. I'm NC50 for reference.

I wish I knew for sure. I see red and yellow. Blue toned reds just tend to work. I think I have a mostly red undertone because orange reds, orange period and warm reds tend to clash with my skin. I may have a yellow overtone? I think I will look into it this week.

I'm NC45, but that is too dark and orange. C7 has been the best MAC match. I'm 173 in MUFE HD. I'm medium brown with golden yellow and slight olive undertones. Thanks, Vampy! I'm so excited to hear your input.

I have golden undertones as well and I'm 175 in MUFE HD, 460 in Lancome Teinte Idole. (NC50 is too dark, but NC45 is too light so I just say NC50)

 

Have you tried any Nars Lipsticks? A GREAT blue toned red is Red Lizard. Fire Down Below is also good.

 

Revlon In the Red is also another good option.

 

Nyx has great reds. One of my favorites is Chaos from them. I also love Alabama (this is neutral, so it should fit everyone) from their matte line. Hero is darker, but still a gorgeous red! Seriously, every time I see it on someone I gasp.

 

Stila Fiery is an AMAZING liquid lipstick that is just perfect.

 

Maybelline Very Cherry is also a must. I like all of these, btw.

post #378 of 1470

Hmm, Vampy. According to MUFE you have coral undertones. Could that affect why you do well with blue-based reds? I haven't tried any other company's red lipsticks as I've always been too afraid of red lips. (Well, I picked up a Sephora red last year in a pinch, but it didn't really suit me. I think it was blue-based.) I have Eden Rouge which I think is blue-based and it seems off. Because of that I haven't even cracked open my box of Charmed I'm Sure b/c I don't want to waste it if blue-reds are not for me. Is Deeply Adored brown-based?

 

Does anyone know if True Red = Neutral Red = Blue Red?

I think I may have coral undertones also. Any red that leans orange or yellow looks horrible on me. That would be Ruby Woo, which people love, but looks horrible on me. Even Russian Red gives me the same issue. MAC Red works pretty good for me as well as the first Runaway Red. Stalker from OCC worked better on me than NSFW, although both were surprisingly universal. Jungle Red lip pencil and Dragon Girl Velvet Matte lip pencil from Nars are great blue reds and also their Vesuvio lip stick. I think a True Red is a neutral red is a blue red, because blue reds are more universal for everyone.
I also think blue reds work better with the pink/peach tone of my lip
post #380 of 1470

Well it stinks that I can't pull off the neutral reds well. I probably pull them off, but you know what I mean. Thanks for your input, all!

 

Btw, I haven't even opened my lip tar Pro set from Sephora. I'm overwhelmed with products right now. It takes me a long while to decide if I like something.

Sephora finally has the metallic ones up, I got Yaoi!

Interesting, because I'm told everywhere I go that I have golden undertones and I can see it as well. I prefer my foundation to lean a TAD bit red to give me that warmth in the winter, or I feel like my skin is sallow.

Deeply Adored is not brown-based on me. If you are looking for a good brown-based red, I would try Mac's Dubbonet with Brick lip pencil. With darker skin, brown based lipsticks are universally flattering. I would also recommend Wet n Wild's Cinnamon Spice. A gorgeous brown based red that doesn't even look like it.

post #383 of 1470

Thanks, Vampy. DA pulls a bit brownish on me + I have some brown pigmentation on my lips. I'm wearing Rocker today and it is less brown than DA. Your foundation situation with needing a bit of red for warmth sounds interesting. Sometimes I feel like HD 173 isn't quite warm enough for me (so I purchased the Carmel HD primer which is very pricey.) I wonder if I should try your shade 175? Nevermind, I think I tried 175 over the summer and it didn't work even for my summer shade. HD 177 is the closest match in the dark category and even that is too dark. I use it to mix in with my 173 sometimes since I stupidly ordered it. I should just swap it or sell it.

post #384 of 1470
I can't wait for more of these to appear at the sephora stores. I just read online the OCC loose pigments are online at sephora.com. Since the brand is expanding with Sephora, hopefully that means the all lip tars will show up at the stores soon! I love they are on Sephora's site, but I need that instant gratification, I just like to to pop in the store on my lunchbreaks and grab what I need.

Thanks! I didn't know they were up. I kept looking where they have the other Lip Tar colors. I didn't realize they have them listed in their own section.

I haven't ordered any yet. I'm saving the purchase for January so it'll count towards next year's VIB. I still want Yaoi, Super NSFW, Authentic and Electric Grandma. I don't know about the other two. Let us now how you like Yaoi.

Yeah, I just think my face looks better when I add some warmth. Have you seen the Bare Minerals Boost & Brighten? It's an apricot face powder that just brightens up the whole face and looks amazing for darker skin tones. If you're really pale, the apricot color is overwhelming. Let me know if you find the perfect foundation. Btw, I love love love rocker! My favorite from that collection.

Not sure if this has been mentioned before but OCC is planning 40% discount for professional makeup artists sometime early next year. Tried their concealer in store and they are DIVINE!
