The Lipstick League – week of 6.20.11

Question of the Week: – What’s the one shade you wish you could pull off, but can’t?

Tyna’s Answer: Red. In any shape or form (I would kill to be the lady in the red dress for one evening). But I especially yearn to wear bold, dramatic, old Hollywood, siren engine red lipstick. Sadly, no matter how old I get, red lips always make me look like a little girl playing in her mom’s makeup. Le sigh.

At least the 4th of July holiday gives me an excuse to wear a shade that does flatter me ~ blue. Yay. Here’s what The Lipstick League has in store for you this week:

Clumps of Mascara – has found the blush of all blushes. This one is absolutely gorgeous!

Lipglossiping – channels her inner eyeshadow geek when she swatches her Shiro Cosmetics haul. Come take a peek(achu)!

Nouveau Cheap is giving away 10 sets of the fab new Milani Glossé Top Coat and Smoothé Base Coat (contest ends midnight on 4th of July)!

Orange to LA – recaps her first IMATS Los Angeles 2011 experience. If you didn’t make it out to IMATS this year you can see what you missed!

Pink Sith – Introduces you to the new Chanel Illusion D’Ombre gel shadows. Will you fall in love with them as much as she has?

Phyrra – falls in love with the Too Faced Eye Love palette and tells you where you can find it.

Vampy Varnish – You can’t miss out on these limited edition glosses from Milani.

we heart this – did IMATS last weekend. Wow, did they ever! Check out the haul photos.

Beauty Junkies Unite – Find out why Amber’s experience with the Velvet Mineral Pressed Powder Foundation from Amazing Cosmetics didn’t wind up being as amazing as she had hoped!

We hope you all have an amazing 4th of July weekend. What color do you wish you could wear? And share your plans for the three day holiday!

  1. I love red lipstick, I wish I could wear it every day. I have to be careful though, with my dark hair and pale skin I can end up looking… what’s the word? goth? vampy? trampy? I think you know what I mean. Have a great 4th of July!

  2. Yellow, definitely yellow. Everyone says I would look good in yellow with my super pale skin, brown-grey eyes and dark brown hair. There’s one tiny problem…my cool-toned skin says a big fat N-O to yellow. I’d love to be the girl in a pale yellow dress with a white parasol, but my skin doesn’t go with it!

  3. remember when MAC brought out Lavender Whip lipstick and everyone went bananas? Yep, I did too. and I have no idea to this day how I can pull it off…

  4. Red is a tricky one for me too.. It’s one of those colors that is hit or miss for me-It can be so pretty on but sometimes I think it’s just not working at all for me- lol.. I’ll wear Red if I’m going out to a nice dinner or special function.. but normally on a day to day I’m just not one to try to bring much attention to my lips, so I tend to keep them on the side of non-assuming with a natural color.

  5. I wish I could pull of bright colors in general. It’s not so much that I don’t look good in brights, it’s that I don’t have the confidence required! I almost always end up wussing out and sheering down the colors. *sigh* Someday!
