I opened a rarely-used lipstick today and noticed little bumps on the sides - they look like the bacterial colonies we used to grow on plates back in microbiology classes, hence my question. [more inside]
I've always wanted to wear red lipstick. However, as a redhead with very pale, golden tone skin (see profile pic), I have yet to find one that doesn't make me look like a corpse made up by a third-rate mortician. Redheads of MeFi, have you managed to rock a particular shade of red lipstick, and if so, what is it? Someone told me to try Max Factor's Ruby Woo because it's supposed to be universally flattering... does anyone have any other suggestions?
I absolutely love the CoverGirl Outlast Lipsticks (this kind, with the wand and the separate moisturizer). I love a good deep red noir lipstick. But they only offer a few colors, and I want more choice! [more inside]
Awhile ago I saw a very strange art video in which a woman is putting on lipstick, then proceeds to cover her entire face, then her entire body, in pink lipstick. [more inside]
I realize this is slightly similar to the previous question, except it's about lipstick, and less about setting it than getting it to show up in the first place. My silver lip color is just not doing what's advertised on the tin. [more inside]
I'm in my late 40s and almost never wear makeup. Yet for the last month I've been obsessing over trying a bright red lipstick. (This happened when I saw another mom at my kid's school, dressed in totally casual clothes, casual hair, yet absolutely ROCKING a bright red mouth.) How to accomplish this without looking like a fool and/or spending a fortune? [more inside]
Does anyone have a lead on where I could buy non-traditional lipstick colors in Seattle? Preferably downtown or at a mall. I'm looking for a blue, purple, and/or teal, and I'm obsessed with this mint green color from Lime Crime. Thanks!

We're doing a show that requires a character to write on a laminate surface every night with what is supposed to be lipstick and are looking for some work-arounds to deal with expense and time. [more inside]
I can't believe I'm asking this, but how do lipstick fiends manage having a man that they would like to kiss regularly? [more inside]
Hate the formula, love the color: other ideas for lipsticks that replicate Revlon's Just Bitten Lipstain in Gothic, which is a lovely deep blue-toned red? [more inside]
What are some recommendations for matte, long-lasting lipstick? [more inside]

I lost my favorite baseball cap over ten years ago on a trip to Europe. I've decided I want it back or a similar replacement. It was a bulldog head over crossed bones like a skull and crossbones. Does anyone know where it's from and, more important, where I can get another? [more inside]
How do I keep my lipstick on my lips and not on my wine glass, my fork or someone I'm kissing? Any tips and/or recommendations for long-wearing lipsticks would be great. Thanks!
Where can I buy makeup online (Covergirl in particular)? [more inside]
Is this a blasting cap? [more inside]
Ok, I am probably wasting my question quota here, but here I go: Ladies, am I the only one on this planet that has found it IMPOSSIBLE to find the right lipstick? I have put so much effort into this pursuit, had I shifted my priorities, I might be a world famous physicist, or at least a pretty good bagel maker. I buy lipstick ALL of time and CANNOT find the right one. Twenty years later...same story.....suggestions? (sarcasm allowed due to the silliness of my question I suppose).
