    Yep, flat out fabulous is still my favorite. I’m still on the fence about buying it instead of an OCC lip tar of a similar color. Thanks for the swatch

    My friend is at that convention! I think I’m going to pick up Runway Hit. Every time I try to wear a bright color I think it makes my teeth look yellow. Does anyone else have that problem?
