I've become obsessed with unusual colored lipsticks-- blues, greens, yellows, black, etc. What are some of the brands you like for colors? Between all the amazing colors and all the brands, I have a hard time making choices! So far I've tried OCC, Manic Panic and have some Sweetpea and Fay coming in the mail. Just found Ka'oir by Keyshia but am waiting to see how the Sweetpea colors look before I jump in and get some. Curious to hear what you like...
well you could check my fanpage facebook.com/candycrushcosmetics i just released 6 colors. Tell me what you think.
It seems like they're out of a bunch of their fun colors :(
Manic Panic is a good brand for...I'd say wearable unusual colors. Their purples and blues and a little darker and muted. I like KA'OIR's colors. I haven't tried the brand but their colors look awesome.
Or if you want to get really creative you can use eye shadows too for lip colors, just add a little Vaseline.
Sleek; Illamasqua; Kevyn Aucoin
My favorites are from Lime Crime. The colors are super opaque and wonderful! I have them all:)
I just mix a bit of mineral eye shadow with a clear gloss and it works just as well as lipstick.
Illamasqua have some beautiful fun colours. Sleek are really good as well.
Bitchslap cosmetics has some amazing colourful lipsticks that should be right up your alley if your lookig for great pigmented bright/dark colours thats different from the usual cosmetics :)
Andii I wasn't around when that happened but I started being a lime crime customer a year ago and the customer service is amazing...they are so very active on all social platforms, get back to you fast and the products are great:) Things are definitely different for them now.

Illamasqua have great ones, although I'm getting a little tired of hearing about the new "cult" lipstick they have just brought out in teal ("Apocalips").
Lime Crime. Forever and always. Their packaging (OMG) and the formulation (yet again, OMG) are just to die for. And they have all the weird colors!!! :D http://www.limecrimemakeup.com/cate...
Chinchilla is one of my favorite colors! And like everyone else is saying, mix a lip safe eyeshadow with some vasseline! I tend to prefer loose shadows for that, simply because it's less messy and not as annoying. :) And around halloween, well, they're everywhere. And if you have a MUFE flash palette, well, honey, you are SET!!! I love mine to death. It's just pricey for me, so I don't use it a lot. But seriously, that thing is all you'll ever need.
I've actually heard to stay away from Lime Crime, they don't make their own make up. If anything, try Illamasqua! Their lipsticks have such a wide color range and they're absolutely fantastic quality. Same goes for OCC lip tars.

Illamasqua, Lime Crime and OCC cosmetics are the ones that I know that do weird colors. With Illamasqua, it would be worth checking out lipsticks, lipglosses and their pencils as those are so versatile you can use them everywhere and they have a huge range of colors.
Haven't tried the other two. But seen amazing results from OCC lip tars. Lime Crime are also pretty popular amongst bloggers.

I just got my first Sweetpea and Fay lipstick and I really like it. It is VERY thick stuff but goes on quite nicely and has good full coverage. It has really good staying power too. OCC will always be my favorite though. :)
My Sweetpea and Fay is about to arrive. I was on the fence about a couple colors when I ordered and I can't remember what I ended up with! So it will be a surprise. Can't wait.
Definitely True lime crime, lip tars and or mixing!
i have a bright neon orange & a weird iridescent glitter lipstick...both from mac! unusual lipsticks are awesome! i want more :)

I SIMPLY LOVE OCC LIPTAR AND KA'OIR THEY ARE FABULOUS

I just got my Sweetpea and Fay lipsticks (blue, green and beige) and so far, I love them! I wore the blue one all day today. It was super pigmented, had good staying power and didn't bleed outside my lips (I didn't even use a reverse lip-primer with it.) The smell is like a butterscotch and the feel was good. Sometimes I get annoyed if it's too heavy, but that didn't happen. So far, I'm super happy with them!
OCC is definitely the best! Especially because you can mix them to make ANY color you want! You can also try Sleek Make-up's Pout Paint, they're very similar but are a few bucks cheaper. :)
