Nop I don't. I feel like I can't always get enough product on when I use a lip brush.

But i'm sure if i go back in a week it'll still be there - maybe i should just call and have them hold one. It looks like it's close to my natural lip color, although i think my lips may be a bit bluer and bit more neutral.

 

And i tested (on my arm) Just My Type, which looks like a really good brown, so now it's on my list, too.

Hip 'n Happy is great for colours like Saint Germain. St. G is a bit brighter and HnH more dirty looking and therefore more wearable. It is quite blue based just FYI.

 

I think I'll get JMT too for Firm Form and maybe Yung Rapunxel and Grey Friday.

Party Parrot does not look good on me straight out the tube. I've tried a bolder eye and a neutral eye, it just does not work. So what I've been doing is putting it on then blot it down to a stain then apply Astral creensheen on top. I didn't have a liner in my stash that I thought would change the color.

I feel the same way about a lip brush. Applicatin takes forever when I try using my 316 brush. I always end up applying straight from the tube after several swipes of the brush. I mainly use the brush now to smooth things out or when I'm layering lipsticks like Ruffian Gold. I've been meaning to pick up the 231 brush to use as a lip brush. I saw it used that way during the Marilyn Monroe collection. I think it would work better in applying lipstick since it's larger.

 

I also like pairing Hip 'N' Happy with Saint Germain, and I like it with Pink Popcorn. You definitely need Just My Type.

Did you try a brown liner close to your skin tone?

CC when you recommend this do you mean to fill the lips as well or just to line? Speaking of lining I find it nearly impossible to fill my lips on top of P+P. Like it's too greasy; this is after I've left it dry down and get tacky for a few minutes. Any suggestions?

Yup, Strong Woman. It actually does look rather purple on me, at least I think so.

Going to a hot party tonite, I think I want to wear Firm Form...  But I don't know what to wear on my eyes.   I don't think I have the courage to wear it outside a club.   (I really need to stay home)   Maybe I'll play it safe and wear Absolute Power.

I was going to wear it tonight too! Of course, I'm going to a bar, so it won't be super-bright, but I still find the shade is more wearable than one might think. I like it with light gold & neutral shades on the eye and some black liner...

SW and FF are my favorites from the bunch! I love SW so much! I've been using seductive intent in the middle of my lips so it makes it brighten up a bit and it looks even more beautiful. I've been using it everyday, lol.

I hope your party was fun and you enjoyed Firm Form!

 

I'm a pale face. I wore Firm Form yesterday just to go out and hang around. I had Catch My Eye Fluidline in my brows, Lithe Pigment on my lids, a neutral brown powder in my outer crease (don't recall which at the moment), and Avenue Fluidline lining my eyes. No blush.
