Happy Thursday beauties! We have a new poll on our hands today as per every Thursday. I'm back to a better mood so I was actually able to sit down and think about this one.

It's no secret that I'm all about my lipsticks. Lipstick is the first item of makeup I ever wore (this is back in my goth teenage years when I wore a black lipstick) and I still cannot have enough of my lippie love. I tend to experiment a lot with my lip combinations. I love to try out different shades and create my own with variation of liners, lipsticks and lipglosses. I wear anything from super duper nudes a la MAC Myth, bright corals like Chanel Genial, retro reds like Nars Dragon Girl or dark vampy shades like MAC Night Violet. I feel like I can pretty much pull off any shades,....well, almost! There's a certain shade called "brown" that I cannot for the life of get to look good on me. I've tried bronzey browns, caramel browns and dark chocolate browns and they're all disastrous on my complexion. I think I've just given up on that shade! I'm thinking light medium skintone with neutral undertones and pigmented pink lips + brown lipstick = bad idea!

Is there any shade of lip colour that you feel you cannot get to work for you? Feel free to select more than one answer and elaborate in comments :)

    I feel like I can't do anything too orange toned or brown toned... I'm very pink/red skinned so it just clashes on me!

    I agree on brown for sure, very hard shade to wear. I haven't tried orange but I do love coral. I'm pretty neutral toned so most shades "should" work
