    I've always worn one shade of lipstick by no 7 on special occasions (stole it from my mum lol) but recently I've gotten more into it but...they've now discontinued the lipstick...it was endless colour morella cherry shade, quite dark red/burgundy colour :s:

    I am open to most colours apart from the bright red/pink look MATTE colours please.

    Oh and I have creamy/yellow complexion. (Price range, below £15 preferably)

    I use Maxfactor Lipfinity. Shade number 108 - frivolous.

    What I like about Lipfinity is that it really stays on properly. So you don't get that awful stain on straws for glasses and then leaving just a lip liner effect. Eurgh. And I feel you really need that, especially with dark lipsticks.

    Rimmel Lasting Finish lipstick in 'Bordeaux' - I purchased this for a few pounds off eBay and really love it. Dark, yet totally wearable. (I also have yellow undertones in my skin). Although it can be slightly drying.

    I really want to try Mac lipstick in the shade 'Diva', which is darker and more intense than the Rimmel shade. Perhaps I'll invest for next autumn...

    The liptints keep coming up when I youtube it... I bought quite a few of the Max Factor liptints... not good value for money.

    Is it a matt colour? Does yours end up looking like this:

    I have that problem, constantly have to top it up so it doesn't dry out and look red with awful lip liner.

    Found your one on ebay here

    I just saw it, it's a gorgeous colour. I think I'd get bored of that colour though. Or maybe it's not dark enough for me. I'm kinda into the whole gothic/grungy look at the moment.

    If you have yellow undertones to your skin you will want preferably a warmer shade, more orangey than a cooler, blueish lipstick. Mac has a lot of dark lipsticks for your shades, such as Chilli or Brave Red and these lipsticks are under £15 + great quality. Once you go mac you can never go back.

    There were loads a few months ago.

    Now there's just this.

    I think it's been discontinued in the UK.
