I am looking for as many recommendations as I can for long wear, kiss proof, food proof lipstick.

No problem. Here are my faves: 

  1. Maybelline Super Stay Lipcolor - $8.49 - best drugstore pick for this imo
  2. Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge - $24 this will last like, unending makeout sessions. I promise. I don’t even understand how it’s so bulletproof.
  3. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick - $24 I like the color selections from Stila the best for this occasion. 

Hey ladies, love your work! I'm wondering if you know of any lipsticks that are dupes of MACs 'velvet teddy', or are similar? Preferably matte or creamy. Thanks!

Yep! Here you are: 

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick 14 • Kate Moss • $5.79 
Revlon Matte Lipstick, Mauve It Over 003 • Revlon • $7.99 
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipcolor • Revlon • $7.99 

I think Mauve it Over would be your best bet, it’s quite similar and matte. The other two are very similar in terms of color but are not matte. Hope that helps!

Any good, black lipstick?

i am fond of:

  1. portland black lipstick company
  2. kaoir has a great lipstick formulation across all shades including black
  3. mufe artist intense lipstick is readily available and very pigmented, i just don’t like the formulation as much as others on the market. still — very pigmented, not wimpy at all. 
  4. drugstore option would be NYX macaron shade. i don’t like it on me but others beauty bloggers seem to really love it. on me it kind of just slips off. 

Lipstick! Any recommendations for high quality mattes? Looking to venture out of my nude-pinks into some berries and reds. I'm neutral-cool (oranges look silly but peaches look great?) Blonde hair (and lashes and brows) and blue eyes.

  1. NARS Train Bleu is my favorite matte. NARS Matte Lip Pencils in general are great. Velvety! It’s a dark dramatic “fall” color but the entire range is great. 
  2. For a drugstore matte, the NYX Matte range is pretty great. I prefer it to the Illamasqua mattes which are much more expensive. They’re also stranger colors, which is great if you want a matte teal lipstick, but it is the hardest formulation in Sephora… very chalky, almost.

I finally got my hands on three of the NYX Macaron lipsticks and I LOVE them! While playing around with the lipsticks, I noticed some wouldn’t stick to the center of my lips, making them look patchy. I thought I’d mask this slight problem by creating an ombre effect - one that also makes an unconventional color more wearable!

- NYX Apple Streusel Butter Gloss
- Red Lipgloss (I’m using MAC’s Strawberry Malt)
