lipsticks for men

Hi, I'm a man and been experimenting with makeup for quite a while now. I want to wear lipstick in public , but don't want to look freakish, suggestions?

Re: lipsticks for men

Guys, this thread is more than a year old.

G2S, from your album I can see that you've branched out to bolder colours since then!! You look great in them, because colour does not know gender 🙂

Re: lipsticks for men

Ha! Didn't even notice. Saw it on the main page so assumed it was recent.

Re: lipsticks for men

That's OK, don't mind you ladies offering suggestions and pictures.  What I want is to find 3 or more ladies to take me shopping for dresses, heels and makeup.  

Feel free to send me pictures of makeup and earrings. 

Re: lipsticks for men

You should start a thread requesting those pics. You will really get a lot of recomendations and examples that way. Where do u live? 

Re: lipsticks for men

Small town, rural Saskatchewan, Canada 

Re: lipsticks for men

I am pretty ignorant about Canada geography but i do know they r plenty Canadians in the threads. At the very least they can give u clothing store recommendations.

Re: lipsticks for men

Haven't found very many stores that will let me try on clothes and shoes.  Most makeup counters won't help with makeup. I have a few places and the ladies seems to have fun helping me out. 

Re: lipsticks for men

Hearing that stores won't let you try on clothes and shoes is deplorable and is beyond disheartening to hear that people continue to live in such ignorance. 

Re: lipsticks for men

That's really too bad. People in small rural towns can be so closed-minded. You may have to make a pilgrimage to a large city to get good service (they will probably have better a selection too).

Re: lipsticks for men

I did have a store a few years ago that told me that they were embarrassed with me trying on dresses - I was looking better in them than a lot of the ladies did! 

 

I had gone a number of times, over the years and had my ears pierced, got chicken and took them out.  Now that chain, in that city won't pierce my ears. 

Re: lipsticks for men

Thanks my dear, love seeing your beautiful pictures.

Re: lipsticks for men

Glossy nudes are great for drawing attention to your lips without making a bold statement. Plus people will probably just be guessing if you're wearing a color or just a bit too much Vaseline 😉 Good Luck!

Re: lipsticks for men

 you know whats fun............go to the make up counter and apply the darkest reddest lipstick on and watch all the reactions you get.  Its brave if youre a guy, but reccomend doing it in another city if you want to be discreet

Re: lipsticks for men

No one here will tell you it's freakish ! If anything we're here to enable! 🙂

 

Bite Beauty Lip Tints could be a good place to start. They're someplace between a balm and a lipstick and feel very comfortable to wear.

Maybe also do a board search for the phrase MLBB. It stands for My Lips But Better. They're lipsticks that are close to your natural shade but just enhance your look. 

 

Good luck!

Re: lipsticks for men

If you want a hint of color, the Fresh tinted balms are great! Really moisturizing too 🙂

 

Forget what people think, you do what makes you happy and feel good about yourself!

Re: lipsticks for men

The Fresh tinted lip balms are a good idea. They come in a good selection of colors.

Re: lipsticks for men

Anyone who thinks you look freakish does not deserve to hold an opinion on you.  Avoid those people at all cost. Wear whatever you want to.

Re: lipsticks for men

try a tinted lipbalm or something thats not overly dramatic. 

Re: lipsticks for men

I don't think a man in lipstick would look freakish at all.  Some backwards people are probably going to think it's strange because they're poops, but never make decisions based on the opinion of someone who's going to hate you no matter what you do - you feel me?

 

If you mean you want a very natural look, it would definitely help us to have a picture of your natural lip color so we can give suggestions as to a "my-lips-but-better" shade for you!

Re: lipsticks for men

Don't worry about looking "freakish" because I think someone who can wear what they want is brave and admirable. I would suggest tom ford lipsticks because they have a bunch of nudes and if you're wanting to get pops of color I would checkout NARS lip pencils because they have an array of colors bold and naturals
