    OK! Now it’s not even sticking to my lips! Beaded up on top lip but my bottom lip is nice and red.😝

    I don’t get what’s going on. 💋 Mine went on okay. Took a while to dry, no beading. Then I sealed it with my favourite peppermint lip balm. Good to go. Could it be the glycerin or the type of preservative used?

    I have veggie glycerin from NDA, distilled water, carmine, no preservative. I know, I know, bad Belinda, bad, bad! But I was doing it more as an experiment, not as a keeper. I don’t really do reds too much, I’m more of a pink girl. I will say it went on the best with fresh scrubbed lips. Maybe I should have waited a minute or two more before applying after scrubbing to make sure they were totally, completely, bone dry. I do like the color so I’ll probably make some “bug” red gloss or something with it.😜

    That color looks good on you, Cyn! I’d say it’s a keeper!!

    The big thing I noticed was you definitely have to wait for it to dry. It can take longer than you think. I waited three minutes, it was damp. Five minutes, less so. Fifteen minutes, hey, I was doing dishes, completely dry. Only then did I layer it. But I will say, you do have to really do the mashing and blending well or it likes to fall out, I think. That might be why it pearls up.

    It’s not bad. I’m a plummy or nude girl normally. But this, I could do.

    With mine, it wouldn’t stick to my lips (or at least not my top lip) until I put less water than the recipe. Then it would look nice, but if I liked my lips or drank water or did anything with my lips, it would start leaking carmine blood. Even if I did nothing, since the inside of my mouth is wet, it would progressively give me red bloody teeth. Great vampire look 😂. I’ve given up with the stain. When I want a bright red, I use the lip paint base with carmine and titanium dioxide as the pigment. For some reason, that exact pigment gives me a purpley pink with the long-wear base. Gorgeous as well, but not red.

    OOOO! I want to see too!! That sounds very pretty!

    I’d really like to see the vampire look, but I’m guessing you didn’t take pictures of that.

    I didn’t take a picture of the vampire look. I rushed to wash it off. Here are the pictures of the bright red lip paint and the pink-purple long-wear lipstick in the pots and swatched on me:

    I will be curious to see how your carmine does, Connie, since it seems to be hit and miss with everyone. Maybe it’s operator error?!?! Or we have weird lip skin?!?!

    Hi, everyone! Although this is my first post on the forum, I have enjoyed making creations from the book! Has anyone experimented with the Red Dahlia Lipstick? I made it and mine came out more of a violet color than a “classic red” as termed in the book. I bought a second red oxide from a different supplier thinking maybe the red oxide is too blame (perhaps too much of a brown red), but sigh, the second red oxide was the exact same color. Any thoughts?
