I started making my own lipsticks because the commercial ones always dried my lips out. But I really like the colour of MUFE Artist Rouge Natural #7 for a nude on darker skintones like mine, so I'm trying to dupe that

I like wines, plums and red-browns.

I have good luck with estee launder. I'm prone to reactions as well.

When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
