Bonjour all! As the summer is coming to an end, I thought I would do a quick round up of my Top 5 Pink Lipsticks. Spoiler: I couldn't choose just 5. I've also filmed me rambling on about these lipsticks, so either click play or read away!
If you know anything about me, it may have come to your attention that I have a slight obsession with Mac lipsticks. I won't go into why I love them, if you've ever seen their lipstick counter then you will just understand. So be prepared for a few MAC lippies!
MAC Lipstick in Faux
This is my perfect nude colour, it's my lips but better. It is a satin formula, which for me means there is a lot of pigment, it's long lasting and very comfortable on the lips. I don't find it is particularly drying at all. I'm always in a bit of a rush in the morning so I tend to opt for this lipstick the most. Ain't nobody got time for purple lipstick in a rush! If you don't like the satin formula, then I would recommend Modesty (again by MAC) which is a creamsheen.
MAC Lipstick in Impassioned & Sleek Matte Lipstick in Heartbreaker
Ahoy, dupe alert! Impassioned is one of my first MAC lipsticks and I still adore it. It is definitely one of my top 3 summer lipsticks! It is an amplified formula which I find similar to satin. Comfortable on the lips, long wearing and with loads of pigment. It's a beautiful pink colour with a slight tint of coral to it. Heartbreaker is very very similar to it, and much cheaper! The only reason I prefer Impassioned is because I'm not the biggest fan of Matte lipsticks. But if you're looking for that colour but not bothered by the formula or prefer matte lipsticks then Sleek Heartbreaker is for you!
|MAC DUPE ALERT!|
MAC Lipstick in Pink Nouveau
My last pink lipstick in my top 5 is Pink Nouveau. This is a really lovely classic pink, with a purple undertone. If I'm looking to wear a colour that isn't nude but not quite a bright lip, then this is the lipstick I go for. It's a subtle bold colour. I find I can wear this one at any time of the year as well, win win!
Clinique ColourPop in Sweetpop
Three cheers for not choosing another MAC lipstick. This is probably my most comfortable lipstick to wear in ratio to colour pay off. If I was to choose a lipstick to wear every day for the rest of my life, it would be a ColourPop because they are so comfy! The colour is a classic barbie-esque pink. It is more glossy looking than the other lipsticks in this post, but it isn't sheer at all. I liked wearing this during the day whilst working reception.
Kiko Ace of Diamonds Lipstick in 27
I bought this lipstick around a year ago now and it was limited edition but I had to add it to this post! I love the berry colour of this lipstick, especially now that we are going into Autumn. Again, it is comfortable to wear and doesn't dry out your lips. Can you tell that comfort is the most important thing to me? I do find that I prefer the limited edition products from Kiko over the standard products.
That concludes my Top 5 Pink Lipsticks. But I am naughty and have included a couple of other pink lipsticks I love though. Yes, yes they are MAC. These two are MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus and Pink Pidgeon.
MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus
Aside from the fact that I love Princess Miles, this lipstick is actually very pretty as well. It is a standard bright pink colour but does sheer out a little when you wear it.
MAC Lipstick in Pink Pidgeon
This is a bright pink which stays bright pink on your lips. It's a retro matte, so once it's on it is on. If I'm going out for a night out and want a really bright pink lip, then this is definitely the colour I go for!
That concludes my Top 5 (but turned into 8) Pink Lipsticks!
Thank you for reading and please do let me know what your favourite pink lipsticks are!
