Please me find the perfect lip shade...

Recommended Posts

Hey hey, 

I'm on a life long quest to find my perfect lip color. I feel like I've tried everything from drug store to high end and can't seem to find a color that is just right. 
I'm looking for a muted, dusky pink that's closer to peach than to berry I guess. I'm very pale with blue eyes and dark hair. I'm looking for something that's matte, long-wearing, won't transfer to my chin when I'm eating/drinking and isn't sticky. 
Holy grail perfect color is Mac Faux - but it's a Satin and I'd need that color as a matte.

I've swatched my favorites on my arm and here's a list of reasons why they aren't quite right for me.

Chanel Rouge Coco in Boy (I could do without the glitter and it's basically translucent so I don't really count it) 

p2 Convey Greatness (too dark, too brown) 

Mac Viva Glam IV (the color is fine but it smudgessss) 

Mac Faux (the Color is perfect but like I said, I'd love that as matte or something that doesn't wear off as easily) 

Maybelline Super Stay Crayon in Lead the way (it's probably the closest color match to Faux but it's not very matte either and I don't love the overpowering vanilla scent) 

Sephora Matte Lip #13 (Beautiful but since I'm so pale it's really not a color I could pull off during the day, it looks very evening glam on me)

Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink (the color is a bit too orangey-brown BUT the main issue is that it's sooo sticky and doesn't ever dry down completely and I can't deal) 

Wet N Wild Liquid Catsuit in Nudist Peach (it's fine, but very red on me, not quite what I'm looking for as an every day color) 

Clinique Nude Pop (this is like 5 years old so I won't use it anymore, but I did like the color, sadly it's not a matte and I've not seen this particular color in years, maybe it's discontinued) 

My perfect gloss color is Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in 07 toffee if that's any help.

TL,DR: Looking for a matte version of a color similar to Mac Faux. 
 

Please help 🥰

    • Hi Romy, I am so sorry that nobody replied to you. I understand your frustration and I really wish you further soonest recovery. Do you have Bitcoin or other crypto? Or maybe plan to trade some soon? The thing is that there is a cool place where you can gamble for BTC like in an normal casino. I guess you should click and give it a go.
    • When you're only washing your face and not bathing or showering, do you wash your hands clean first before washing your face?
    • I've been to Vegas few times and won about 600$ in total. The biggest income from betting I ever got was one from online betting site (I just picked one here https://casinobetsites.com/sports-betting-sites/ ), I succeeded thanks to my fav soccer team 😍
    • you know I tried different sleep positions when I had insomnia, but it didn't help me fall asleep quickly. I've been looking for a solution and found it on the site https://greenpapas.com/blogs/cbd/cbd-oil-sleep. I bought myself CBD oil and decided to try therapy. After two days of therapy with CBD oil, I started to have a baby-like sleep.
    • I also play different games, but the best thing was to play after my husband bought a virtual reality helmet. We began to sit there for hours, seriously, things like VR chat or SLR are just dragging on and you don’t want anything else;) I advise everyone!
