Why does Cruella look hot pink on me?
i love love love Cruella....when it isn't on my lips. I am 19 and have very fair skin. My natural lip color is a very very light pink. When i apply this to my lips, it looks hot pink! I have this problem with a lot of reds. Why does this happen and how do i fix it?

on Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
Try applying concealer on your lips before using Cruella. That should neutralize your natural lip color and allow the red to stand on its own. Good luck!

This also happens to me with every red lipstick I've tried. Dragon Girl looks bright fuchsia on me! Like Jade4NJ said, it must have something to do with warm undertones -- I suppose it's now time to shop for the perfect primer!
Try only applying it in the center of your top and bottom lip, and then blending it out with your finger or a q-tip. It'll make the color less intense and concentrated. Or put a layer of chapstick on before you use it. That usually works for me!

yea its just from your lips natural pigment. to fix it you can put a lip primer, concealer, or foundation on your lips. it blanks them out and creates a base for your lipstick.

Same thing happens to me. I've been told its because of my "yellow" undertones. I am medium to light skin African American
