Can you color analyze Lisa
Bonet, Zoe Kravitz and Rashida Jones?
To do each of these women to my satisfaction would take hours, but I can give my quick impressions.
I think Rashida Jones is overwhelmed by black (so she's probably not a Winter), and seems orangey in rich, warm colors (so she's probably not an Autumn). But I like her in pure white and in many blues. I'm going with Summer of some sort for her.
Zoe Kravitz is tough. In some pics, she seems to handle black; in others she looks goth. Many colors seem too wimpy for her. I honestly haven't found a common theme to her best looks. What do you think?
Lisa Bonet: I like darker, richer tones on her. See the teal and maroon at the top. Black's not bad. Bottom left, no way. I vote Dark Autumn or Dark Winter.
What do you notice?
Sorry for the long delay in this series! My babies, my students and my graduate professors thank you for your patience.
All of the lippies in this series are recs from the ladies of the 12 Blueprints Facebook page, Christine Scaman, Mary Steele of Luminosity, or my own swatches.
If you're a Light Spring, most of these colors will work on your lips - and on your cheeks too, if you use them as blush.
Some may be a touch too warm, too cool, too light or dark. This is normal, because the variation of human coloring within a season means that not all women in a season wear the same colors on the face equally well.
Several of these are discontinued. Check eBay for them. I just bought a four-pack of my favorite discontinued Soft Autumn long-lasting lippie.
Try before you buy. (Good advice, right? But I don't always follow it. I've bought a lot of Soft Autumn lippies sight unseen and been happy with all but one, which was too light.)
Please do share feedback on the recs, or additional recs, in the Comments section.

My mom and I went makeup shopping yesterday and I was looking for a good, every day lipstick. We were looking at Maybelline Summer Sunset and Hooked on Pink. The latter did a better job of clearing the skin, so we went with that one. Once in the car, I tried it on and it did seem to clear some blotchy-ness away. It also seemed to whiten my teeth (always a good thing). I decided to look in your blog to see if the colour had been mentioned and it had, to my surprise, in Dark Autumn. Would it work for any other season? I've never really considered Dark Autumn before (or any dark season).
I do indeed have Hooked on Pink on my list of recs for Dark Autumn. But I don't know where I got the rec from. :-(
Erin adds, "Since I sent the question, my mom and I are also considering that I could be a Bright Spring as well."
Feedback, readers? Any experience with Hooked on Pink? What's your season, and how did it work for you?
