Yes. Too early for them & me. I always fall asleep on the train. I'm shocked no one checked my pulse to make sure I wasn't dead. LMFAO! girlhaha.gif

I have had peeling lips for way too long, but picked up Dr. Lipp Nipple Balm from the Sephora VIB sale and have to say my lips are 90% better. The formula lasts almost an entire day on my lips - even through eating. I do only one reapplication if any. (Not counting the night one after I wash my face.) Once you get over the texture I think it works awesomely. It's really thick thus a bit hard to spread, but I can feel it acting as a barrier b/w my lips and the dry air. No problems applying my lipstick over it so far. I think I read it is waterproof. When I wash my face I have to do work to get it off.

Thanks for the tip. I am going to have a really immature moment here now, so my apologizies. The word Nipple had be laughing and I kept thinking of Beavis & Butthead. You said "Nipple" huhuhuhuh. Such a weird name for a lip balm.girlhaha.gifblush-anim-cl.gif

When i went to place a Lime Crime order, Poisonberry was sold out weeping.gif

 

I ordered Airborne Unicorn (matte medium light purple), Serpentina (dark metallic green), and Mint to Be (matte light mint). I'll either layer the Mint or mix it with other lipsticks, but Serpentina looks like it will be just fine on its own.

 

Too bad Hollygram Carousel Gloss (sparkly emerald green) wasn't available for the Black Friday/Cyber Monday discount. It and a couple other Holiday glosses (Present - sparkly dark magenta - and Snowsicle - clear with rainbow sparkle) won't be available until Dec. 1

 

And since LC sends by US postal service, i won't have the package until i return home in a couple weeks, because there's no mail delivery here (gated community).

 

BUT my MAC Grey Friday should arrive here where i am TOMORROW (along with Prep+Prime Vibrancy Eye), so at least i'll have some excitement to look forward to.

Not surprising it has that name and that effect. It's 100% medical grade lanolin. It's just a repackaging of a nursing mother's nipple balm. When i was nursing i had a pure lanolin balm for my nipples, although i rarely had any problems with the skin drying and cracking.

Glad to hear that your package finally arrived! smiles.gif And please do share how you like your lippies once you've tried 'em peace2.gif

 

I ordered LC Chinchilla as well yesterday, couldn't resist anymore, probably will be impossible to find a good dupe for it anyways. *Fingers crossed* the color will suit me :)

Oh don't think I haven't been giggling at the name for a week. I put it on my guy and then told him the name. He gave me serious side eye. I am also immature. greengrin.gif But like lilinah said it's just repackaged stuff. If you weren't too embarrassed you could probably grab some from the baby section and put it in your purse for a little cheaper.

Despite getting home at 1:30am last night, I still had to try out Grey Friday!  I wish it wasn't so sheer, but because it is, it definitely has some flexibility to go from day to night.  I also ordered a gray liner from Illamasqua to go under cause it really needs some kind of liner or base.

Wow. How did you get poisonberry? When I went to the site before the sale went live, it said sold out. I got D'Lilac, Chincilla and Airborne. It's waiting for me in the mailbox :D

Grey Friday looks beautiful on you eyelove.gif

Lol I know how dare him. He would have a fit if I even put near him thank you though. I love grey friday it's very versatile too and thank you for the compliment.

post #468 of 580

Just got Grey Friday today! I haven't opened it yet to see what it looks like and will later on.

post #469 of 580
Mine came today too :-)
post #470 of 580

FYI, for all of you who missed out on Grey Friday, the MAC in Times Square still has them 

post #471 of 580

Got my order today.  It looks GORGEOUS in the tube!  My SA was lemming after it and was thrilled when I gave one to her.  I'm actually more excited to see her rocking this color than me wearing it!

post #472 of 580

I received my order yesterday.  I agree with whoever said by itself on me looks like I've been smoking for 30 years.  However putting it with any other purple or red makes for quite a few wonderful colors.  I put it over Nightmoth liner and it turned to the most beautiful, vampy, deep purple I've been searching for my entire life.  Lol.  Revenge is Sweet over it was my second favorite combo.  It's a keeper simply because you can change the look of it pretty easy.  

post #473 of 580

Oh lordie that Lime Crime Poisonberry lippie sucked me in too!  It's on its way to me now...

Along with that darn Alchemy duochrome eyeshadow palette!  They had me at "Duochrome!"

TOO MUCH MAKEUP! LOL

post #474 of 580

I've been playing with Grey Friday and while it's sheer, I like I can build up the coverage. It's definitely an interesting color! I paired it with Magenta lip pencil from MAC and it toned down the vividness of the lip pencil, but I still liked it! I am planning on sporting a black lip tonight for a show I have, so I'll play around with Grey Friday with Black lip mix from MAC.

post #475 of 580
Why did I look that up?! Lol. I'm loving the Aquataenia palette too. I don't need any more shadows, but doesn't make me want them any less! Ahhh.
Man I really want to try my grey Friday out! But I still got this stupid cold sore throwup.gif I'm going to paint my nails with the polish today.

Oh! Look! They restocked Poisonberry! I gotta wait until Hollygram goes live, otherwise the shipping costs will eat my wallet... I hope Poisonberry lasts for another day or 2.

 

And, look! Chinchilla is Sold Out! I bet a lot of Specktralites are getting it...

post #477 of 580

My Grey Friday surprised me by arriving yesterday! So, there i was, in the house alone, and of course i put it on anyway!

 

It's a little sheer, but i get good coverage from it and i'm happy with how it looks, especially if i'm wearing black clothes (i've got too many black clothes...)

 

Now to figure out how to take a photo of myself... bathroom mirror here i come!

post #478 of 580

 I picked up some NYX lip pencils.

 

1000 Years - It's not a dupe of MAC Stone. It's actually more grey than Stone. Stone is more of a taupe grey. Grey Friday looked more like the promo image with this pencil.

 

Latte - A metallic taupe color. It makes Grey Friday look more metallic.

 

Sweet Bean - A metallic purple taupe. It gives Grey Friday a purple tint.

I like to get them from a local beauty store for $1.99. They also carry colors that Ulta doesn't have. It's good to get them from Ulta when they have a sale. Right now NYX products are buy 1, get 1 50% off. You can stack the sale with the $3.50 off a $10+ purchase for even more savings. I buy them in the store instead of ordering online to avoid shipping. I would only get them online from Ulta if my total is going to be $50 or more to get automatic free shipping. However, the main downside when getting them at the store is that the selection may be picked over and some colors you want may be out of stock.

 

eBay is another great place to get them if you prefer to order online. There's also nyxcosmetics.com and cherryculture.com, but I've never ordered from either of them.
