ifuckinglovebatman said: Hi, I was wondering if you would be able to recommend a purple lipstick that leans a bit more towards the berry side? Preferably something matte, or anything without a shimmer. I'm quite pale with pink undertones, and I appreciate any help you can give me! :]
The right purple lipstick is always hard to find, most of the time the matte ones seem to have shimmer. Manic Panic brought out a really cute purple around halloween time but it was shimmery.
I have heard sephora do a matte purple but i’m yet to try it (it’s super hard to get their products here in australia)
Illamasqua do have some beautiful lipsticks however :)
(I like ‘fetish’)
I like to wear matte purple lips alot, the easiest way for me is just applying some lip balm first to moisturise, and then lining and filling my whole lip with an NYX liner. (Preferbly shades ‘Plum’, ‘Prune’ or my favourite is ‘Deep purple’)
I’m forever on the hunt for the right purple so i’ll keep y’all updated when i discover it! xoxox

Most lash glues will state if they are latex based or not, I prefer to use them for myself but just to be safe you should probably steer clear of them. Just always check the ingredients :)
Just check up on what you’ve been using, if it DOES contain latex, then you know you’ve been fine with it haha!

I'm looking for a red lipstick, and i have a medium olive yellowish skintone, can you recommend me one?
Warm and orange based tones will suit your skin type best.
Even though I recommend it a lot, ive never seen a girl with olive skin that didn’t suit Mac’s Ruby Woo.
If matte isn’t your thing, Revlon Red is really great for your skin type, too!

Oh I recall you! Hehe :) Sorry I was under pressure so much that day, one of the managers from England was watching me like a hawk so I couldn’t chat properly :p
I do buy most of my stuff online because it’s usually cheaper anyway. I buy my o.c.c tars from an online store overseas so i’m not much help there!
As for the rest, Crush Cosmetics usually has those brands :)
xxxxx thanks for the message girlie

Laura Mercier have beautiful products, especially for your skin type.
This is a personal favourite of mine.

Has this colour some special name?
Can you please recommend me any brand or number of lipstick in particular?
Mac Ruby woo!!!!!
Russian Red for something a little more blue based.
