Question of the Week

It’s Friday yet again!

It’s a rainy and blustery one here in the Bay Area and supposed to be pretty stormy all weekend. I don’t mind it actually, I kinda like storms on occasion! It gives me a chance to bust out my rain boots. :)

What is your favorite shade of lip color to wear? Do you prefer lipstick or lip gloss?

I love a good bright red or pink, but don’t wear them very often. My standard shades, depending on my makeup, is either a shimmery pink or peach gloss. I do tend to wear more lip gloss than lipstick just because it’s quicker to apply.

Have a good one!

    Oh I’m definitely a lipstick girl! It’s just too windy where I live and lipglosses could make a mess. I like MLBB shades as well as cool-toned fuchsia and all shades of red!

      Oh man I know the feeling. The company I worked at was right by SFO and it was SUPER windy there all the time. Short hair + lip gloss rules, hahaha!

    Blue, when I can find it. Because it’s so uncommon I’ll wear it in whatever form I can, be it gloss or lipstick.

    • November 30, 2012

      Ah nice! I love a blue lip, but don’t think I could pull it off…

    I reach for lipstick more often than gloss, and usually in a berry shade with a blue tint. I have naturally yellow teeth and anything warm makes my teeth look horrible. =\

    • November 30, 2012

      I’m with you on the cool-toned shades. I prefer them also.

  • November 30, 2012

    Day to day I wear boring nude lip gloss or a lip stain. Revlon’s Kissable Just Bitten Lip Stain (Honey) is my current ‘my lips but better’ work horse.

    If I get to party I’m rocking a red lip or those super sparkly glosses.

    • November 30, 2012

      I wish I had more reasons to wear a bright red but alas, I don’t go anywhere! I suppose I could just wear it at home for myself though.

  • November 30, 2012

    I prefer lipstick. I add gloss when I am in a mood to do something special. And I love to wear coral colours on my lips. All the time! x

      I like a good lipstick/gloss combo from time to time myself.

    I would love to rock a red lipstick ala Gwen Stefani but I do not often feel confident when I do wear red. My go to shade is usually peachy/pink. I prefer a shimmery sparkly lip gloss. Right now I am on my 3rd Dior Ultra Gloss in Flash! This is a sheer fushia with a ton of blue sparkle! Otherwise something like Nars Orgasm

    • November 30, 2012

      Yeah when I don’t wear a bright color for a long time then wear one, I feel self-conscious also. But then I usually get used to it after a bit.

    I prefer lip balm. I mostly play up my eyes all the time. Either balm, simple gloss or a nude lipstick, which I have yet to find.

    • November 30, 2012

      I have a friend who only ever wears Chapstick :)

  • November 30, 2012

    I’m definitely a lipstick girl, I dislike anything that transfers. Red is my favorite, though for everyday I often just wear balm, actually!

      I love the convenience and (usually) moisture of a gloss, but yes, prefer the lasting nature of lipstick more.

  • November 30, 2012

    I prefer lip balms or stains. Lip glosses are always too sticky and lipsticks never seem to stay as long as I’d like.
    I try to stay close to natural, so pinky peaches tend to be my go-to hues.

    • November 30, 2012

      Pinky peaches rock.

  • November 30, 2012

    My favourite shades to wear are red and bright pink as well and I do rock them as often as I can. I wear mostly matte lipsticks although I do love a glossy lip too. Mattes are more convenient because they’re longer lasting and non-sticky.

    • November 30, 2012

      I love mattes also but my lips are SO dry I tend to gravitate towards something more moisturizing.

  • November 30, 2012

    Red of various kind. Though I prefer retro blue reds and va,py deep reds.

    I prefer lip glosses along the lines of Buxom and usually in some peachy pink color. I cannot stand the feeling of dry lips, so I need something that will keep them moisturized!

    I only wear Lip Sticks. I don’t like glosses. They don’t last that long on me and my hair always sticks in there ;)
    My favorit color is dark and berry red (like Mac Diva). But in summer I also wear bright pink and pinkish red.

    Lipstick all the way, even though I haven’t found any that don’t dry my lips out like mad. Lip glosses are sticky and icky. I used to be all about the reds, but now I’m very fond of super vampy berries and plums. Oh I love the vamp!

  • November 30, 2012

    All through high school and the first few years of college, I was a complete lip gloss addict. Lip stick has always been tricky for me, because my lips are naturally really pigmented and really dry… plus I eat and drink constantly so it’d take a lot of prep to get a lipstick to look good, just to come off within an hour. Nowadays, I’m starting to really get into lipsticks, I’m discovering some great moisturizing formulas. I love fresh pinks, peachy (non corpse) nudes, and since this holiday season started and all these gorgeous reds have been coming out, I’m starting to get into sheer bright reds.

    A moisturizing nude lipstick for the work week because lipsticks last a little longer on my lips (I hate to reapply any type of makeup during a busy workday) and nude lipglosses on the weekend.

    I wear more tinted balms around the house and fast errands out…next are lipstick fav is IT Cosmetics lip stains…then Tart Lipsurgance – the ones that have more pigment and less like a gloss. I rarely wear gloss now – found they were all making my lips dry out and peel like nuts and they don’t last – I pretty much tossed all my glosses – think I only kept maybe 2 of ‘em. I can wear just my brows and a lip product and a little concealer and be fine going out for a fast errand now days. Fav shade? That’s harder – I change with the seasons with peach and pinks in the spring/summer and deeper wines and reds in the winter, I have only maybe 2 nudes I like anymore.

  • November 30, 2012

    I go through fazes. Right now my fave is Clinique’s Almost Lipstick in Black Honey. Before that Mac’s O. Also as Ive gotten older I dont wear the very dark or bright ones I used to when I was younger.

    I go for neutral pinky beiges, only lipgloss though. But I’m cool with just a standard lip balm to get me through the day.

  • November 30, 2012

    Definitely lipstick. The bolder the better. I dislike anything sparkly or pearly n me.

    Matte is best.

    In spring I have a thing for pinks — cool fuchsia to hot pink, and coraly oranges.

    Autumn/winter is *all* about red for me. The deeper the better. I’m super fair with dark red hair and I love the contrast. Current fav — MAC Viva Glam I :D

    Mostly I wear lip balm (Herbacin kamille is my fav), but when I wear color I prefer lipgloss. My current love is Black Radiance in Coral Craze. It’s an awesome bright color, and when the shimmer/glitter wears away, it’s a shocking pink that still manages to be warm enough for my skin.

  • November 30, 2012

    I prefer lipstick but I don’t always have time to apply it. My favorite shades to wear are bold reds and oranges like mac russian red (always classic) and mac lady danger. When I don’t have time, I love wearing too faced la creme lipstick in naked dolly since the formula is so creamy for me it’s like a lip balm and lipstick in one.

  • November 30, 2012

    I saw your comment on Twitter about going back to nail polish only,

    Any hoo, I was going to say, you should do what makes YOU happy here!

    I am sure there will always be those who will find a reason to be unhappy with what you do, no matter what, so Forget them! Please yourself, that is what I do! : D

    I hope you have a wonderful day! How about that rain, you can’t swatch polish in this cr@p!

    Dark reds, dark berries, purples- especially purples! I use both gloss and lipstick frequently, although I do seem to slightly prefer lipstick.

    I tend to prefer a my-lips-but-better shade (in any form) since I usually go for a bold eye. I’m trying to get more used to wearing bolder lip shades though. I recently bought a few Ulta lipsticks to try out since they’re pretty cheap!

    I’m more of a lip balm kind of person. :) So I guess of the two you mentioned, I’d go for lip gloss.

    When I wear lip gloss or balm, it’s clear. However, with lipstick, I love wear neon pink like OCC Lip Tar in Nylon or MAC Candy Yum-Yum! :D So much fun!

    Lipsticks all the way!!! I have big lips so anything glossy makes them to big so I stick to my trusty mattes. Still have yet to fine a good purple matte. Missed out in heroine, hope they re-release it.

    Lipstick. I wear a lot of red, Mac Ruby Woo, Red, Russian Red, Satin, Lady Danger, Love Goddess. My fave atm is YSL 13 Le Orange. I love that shade, its perfect for (Australian) summer.

    I wear only lipsticks, mostly red, coral and warm pink one’s…never cool colours, they make me look awful !!!

    To have shinny lips I use Clinique Butter Shine Lipsticks, for colour I love Coromandel (Chanel), Fleurs de Feu (Guerlain), Citrus Pink (Estee Lauder) and Vegas Volt…and to take low profile : Fanfare or Dune Rose (Estee Lauder).

    I’m also a lipstick girl. My favorite shades definitely oranges, corals, and pinks. I dye my hair red and orange shockingly looks great. I was afraid of orange lipstick for years but it’s pretty awesome!

    Red lipstick! About 6 months ago my skin underwent a massive change due to a certain product that is literally a miracle for me. Because my skin is clear and smooth now I wear a red lippie almost every day! :D It varies depending on the rest of my makeup and what I’m wearing – it can be something more natural like Revlon Cherry Tart Lip Butter (I’ve finished 2 tubes!) or something more opaque and dramatic like Wet ‘n Wild Red Velvet. I used to be more of a lip gloss girl who wore mostly pinks or peachy-pinks…but I’m very much in love with lipsticks these days. My other favorite lipstick shades are pinks and purples. There are also a handful of much loved oranges in my stash which I never thought I could wear until this past summer. (Revlon Balm Stain in Rendezvous and Wet ‘n Wild MegaLast lipstick in 24 Carrot changed my mind about orange lippies forever!) I am definitely a lipstick girl. :D

    Though I must say I absolutely LOVE Milani’s Haute Flash glosses (Hot Flash is my favorite gloss ever!) and Milani’s Shimmer Gloss Pencils (again, Hot Flash = LOVE!)! <3
