As romantic and gorgeous as the rains can be, it does tend to get slightly drab at times. The perfect way to cheer up is using pretty pink on your lips – not only does it perk you up yourself but it also spreads some cheer and color around. Fun!
I’ve picked out my 3 favourite pink lipsticks for the season which will take you from day to night to party to work and whatever occasion you can think of!
Sephora Rouge Shine 06
This is a really light/nude shade of pink. Great for the one-odd sunny days and subtle enough to be worn to the workplace and times when you want to play up on your eye-makeup. I really LOVE the natural look of this color. The only factor that seems like a setback with this lipstick is that it glides well only on really well hydrated lips. Incase your lips are even slightly dry or not perfectly maintained, the lipstick creases and tends to catch all the dry skin.
M.A.C Amplified ‘Girl About Town’ AB1
This ones an all time, quite old, about-to-finish, fun-machine lipstick. When in doubt – use this pink on your lips and you are set. This ones particularly suitable for night-outs, parties and can even work great during the days if your outfit is mostly neutrals. Very moisturizing, if you blot this 3-4 times it lasts really long too!
M.A.C Archies Collection – Veronica Satin ‘Daddy’s Little Girl’
The latest addition to my pink lipsticks, this one is not your perfect pink. Some may say it has a bit of purple in it too, which is probably why i’m head over heels for this one. Not your typical teenage girly pinky-to-death shade, it somehow seems a bit mature but still not old. Am I making any sense here? This one is also very suitable for Sunday brunches or lunches and even dining out. Doesn’t glide as smoothly as the ‘Girl About Town’ but that’s what makes it last even longer I suppose and it also gives a slightly more matty look.
Here a peek at the swatch:
Please note that even though this post is about pink lipsticks, nothing can diminish my first true love for reds. Will probably cover that in another post. Hope this helped! Feedback is always welcome.
