Help Identify The Lipstick!


After about a week of tearing my hair out, I turn to you for help, dear readers. Anyone wants to take a gander at what lipstick she's wearing? It's an intriguing in-between shade. Red with some pink and, to my eye, a bit of orange? It looks like it's matte but may be a regular formula and blotted/worn for several hours.

Thanks in advance!

  1. This is how Nars's Heat Wave would look on my skin tone

  2. I can't help with this at all but I'm digging her highlighting/contour job. (And her sunglasses.)

  3. This reminds me of the shade that Kat Von D's Adora lipstick is when I blot it, although I don't see the the metallic finish in this photo. It's a lovely shade, let us know what it is if you find out!

  4. La Ravissante from chanel matte velvet lipstick?
    It is quite hard to see from just a photo.

  5. To my eye it looks like VERY similar NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl.

  6. BTW, Suggested PP dupes are:

    Make Up For Ever Lipstick #37
    MAC Impassioned

    Temptalia has swatches and possible PP dupes at http://www.temptalia.com/mac-for-iris-apfel-lipsticks-review-photos-swatches,

  7. Chanel Orchidee came up as a possibility: http://www.temptalia.com/chanel-rouge-coco-organdi-rose-09-ruban-rose-15-orchidee-15

    Revlon Strawberry Suede is another contender. It's been discontinued, but there are quite a few for swap on Makeup Alley!

    PS: All of my guesses are from the Makeup Board on Make Alley, BTW. I posted the photo and asked what color it might be :-) Those kind ladies helped out right away :-)

  8. Revlon Strawberry Suede looks like that on me! As someone said above, it is dc'd. You can get it on ebay cheap though. :)

  9. Woohoo! Thanks for the suggestions, girls!

    Anonymous- I'll investigate :)

    Liz- I KNOW!! but that is easier to replicate :P

    Sarah- Definitely!

    Fleurs-de-Lisa- Thanks for the major search! Party Parrot is way too pink :( and so is MAC Impassioned. MUFE #37 is a light pink peach to my eye. So far the closest I've seen is Chanel RAV La Ravissante, but I hate that formula. I might still check it out, though.

    Makeupalley girls rock :)

    Anonymous- that's a popular guess! I know :( but I only have this photo.

    Lydia- oooh will check it out

  10. The first picture in a series this girl did looks very similar, if not as matte: http://imgur.com/a/PO3Qg


    HTH!

  11. So beautiful! I wish I had her lip shape! I spot some orange as well. I agree with people saying NARS Heat Wave. It definitely looks matte though.

    ReplyDelete
  12. it looks strikingly similar to Bobbi Brown's Papaya 3 lipstick that I can't live without aka my mother and I have bought 5 tubes of it.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I would say Tom Ford's discontinued Ginger Fawn. Blotted with a tissue. I got mine a few weeks ago at Wrentham Premium outlets for $31.50!

  14. It looks like Chanel la ravissante to me but the color itself also resembles Nars Dolce Vita matte velvet pencil. Let us know if u ever find out ;)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I would say: Revlon Strawbery Sued too (discontinued) or Ruby Woo by Mac which has been a little bit "eaten" .

    ReplyDelete
  16. Looks like Burberry lip cover in Union Red blotted down. Bright and pulls orange.

  17. this is how chanel rouge allure velvet #28 la fascinante looks on me :D

    ReplyDelete
  18. I can't help with this at all, but please update with what it is if you find out because I NEED IT. =D

  19. Maybe it's "Artemis" by Napoleon Perdis? For a swatch look here:

  20. Maybe it's a lipliner or a lipliner + lipstick. Here are some suggestions: Lancome Red Haute, Revlon Strawberry Suede, and perhaps MAC Lady Danger. Let us know what it turns out to be. I'm curious. Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  21. gah, it is stunning! i can see why you'd want to hunt it down...hate when that happens, can't find the exact source. good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Man, I looked through as much of Magdalena's thread on The Fashion Spot to try to find when this picture was taken, because it looks like this candid was taken on the street after a show (and perhaps if it was makeup from the show, they may have had a release on what makeup was used).

    I got tired of looking for it in her thread though... good luck!

  23. I had fun with this, and went through my stash. The closest thing I have is Hourglass's Muse (it's a little more pink and slightly lighter tint than Nars Heat Wave, but very close to it).

    But with differences in monitors, lighting, skin tones, lip pigment...you could probably mix a similar color with a few vaguely similar lippies--orange onto a pinker base?

    Hey wait--Isn't that Poppy King for J Crew color supposed to be like this? ehhh too sheer maybe.

  24. Hi Xiao,

    Closest I got is Chanel Rouge Coco Cambon. RAV Ravissante is too orange in my opinion.

    Waiting for the outcome!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Lancome has a matte shade like this.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm equally intrigued and have been following this discussion! What about Tom Ford's True Coral? That's my bet.

  27. How can anyone identify a lipstick from a photo? It's truly mind boggling to me. Color show up so differently on people with different skin tones, lighting, layered color, etc... Swatches of the same lipstick on Temptalia's blog (on her lips and skin) look so different than swatches on your lips and skin posted on your blog. And. then there's lip pigmentation to consider.

    Which brings me to a huge pet peeve. I hate when bloggers say they have dark pigmented lips when their lips are naturally pretty pink. If they want to see dark pigmented lips, I need to email them a photo of my naturally dark, brown lips.

    I hope you find a match of this color for your lips/skin. Truly, I do.

    The entire reason I read you blog is because the swatches you post closely resembles what it may look like on my skin. Keep up the great work showcasing beautiful makeup!

  28. That photo is stunning, as is the woman. Her lipstick color looks exactly the way Laura Mercier Créme Lipstick in Mistress looked on me, but I believe that was a limited edition color.

    I was able to buy Revlon Strawberry Suede on Amazon.com. It's OK. On me, it's way more vibrant/candy pink than that warm rosy pink looks on the woman in the photo.

    Another one to consider is Lipstick Queen Rose Sinner. It's a matte pink red. Barney's should have it.

    Have fun experimenting!

  29. I think this will help.

  30. I think Rouge d’Armani in #510 is very similar.

  31. YSL rouge pur couture rose dahlia?

    ReplyDelete
  32. I agree with the person that said NARS matte velvet pencil in Dragon girl

  33. Thank you for all the recommendations, everyone! I am quite excited to go out and try these lipsticks (at least the ones I have access to) and see if any of them fit.

    Of course, this is all in good fun. :) I don't have to have the exact same lipstick she's wearing - in fact, whatever she's actually wearing would probably look different on me. I was just so inspired by this particular color since I don't have anything like that in my stash and would like to be able to find one that is the same or similar to it.

    I also believe her SKIN - the smoothness, the contouring/highlighting, the general flawlessness - is so worth emulating!

  34. Tom Ford Flamingo
    Dior red Muse
    Armani 503 or 522
    And i really want this colour too... Please let us know!

    ReplyDelete
  35. It could be any orangey red lipstick with some hefty highlighter applied in the middle section of her lips!

    ReplyDelete
  36. BB guava or dior mazette...

    ReplyDelete
  37. I got a similar look today by layering Lancome's (Matte) Corset and Red Haute!

    ReplyDelete
  38. This might also help :)

    I am also looking for it now!

  39. Same girl here in the show (probably backstage or whatever) but they didn't mention which show:

  40. I still think this is a franken-lipstick. It looks a lot like the mix of orange and cherry (third one down) on this girl's blog.

  41. Maybe Topshop lipstick in Coral Blush would provide the pinky orange, layered with any scarlet red underneath? It really is so beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I am almost sure that this lippie is Dior Ara Red 999. This pic was taken after Dior shows. I have this lippie and half an hour after you put it on it fades in to a pink red. Hope this helps!

  43. I get a similar look w/ OCC lip tars in NSFW and Memento (mixed on back of hand). I love rose/red hybrid shades. OCC lip tars are amazing btw.

    1. Dear Xiao, you've obviously moved on wayyyyy past this entry, but I can confirm that, as someone already pointed out, the photo was taken after Dior S/S 2012, and the lipstick worn by the models is a mix of Rouge Dior Ara Red and Rouge Diorific Roulette Red. I believe the lighting has made her lips look more coral/pink than they actually are, so you might find the real combination unsatisfying...

    2. You're a CHAMP! I made my own version of this with LMdB Riviera mixed with a little bit of bright pink with Mum's the Word. The result is exactly the color I see here.

      But seriously, all of you are awesome <3
