Thanks ladies, all 3 of you ! I really appreciate the help.
You are right, Kinjali22...it's sooo hard to find colors that work for us; and it's great there are a few ladies here who can give a nudge in the right direction
i always end up gravitating towards brown shades thinking that looks the most 'safe' for our skin tones; according to me anyways
So far, i've narrowed it down to 4 shades to try; what do you say?
I'm not too sure about 4matic though. It looks pretty but im wondering if it would bee too light & too shimmery? Maybe i should hold off on it, what do you think ?
Ive been thinking of getting a primer and if im gonna order from SN, might as well get the stick em primer, right !
I have tried SN's foundation (was too hard to figure out a mix for me), 2 lippies (fig leaf & vintage) and 2 blushes (embrace & palace). The lippies are fine though i find vintage a tad too red for my taste. I think deep plums/ dark pinks/ brownish pinks look the best on me. And as for blushes, i have read that peachy/orangey shades seem to be a favorite for darker skintones but i personally don't like it too much on myself (makes me look darker, i feel). I've realized i prefer reddish/ plummish/ deep rose-pinkish shades for myself. As you can see in the pics, my lips are pretty pigmented; so lighter colors end up washing me out.
I'd really like to hear your recs for lippies and blushes, kinjali22 ! (My cart was really small & i think its gonna get bigger now
Also, have any of you tried SN's retractable kabuki ? I was looking for a round top retractable kabuki and saw SN has one. So what do you say? My ecotools one has started to fall apart.
