I have become a fan of a pink pout, subtle, dusty, smoky, warm pinks. I’m not quite there with bright shades yet. I’ve been wearing pink more lately than my usual brown/nudes. It’s becoming clear to me that my absolute favourite make up product is lipstick, it can completely change up a look, and I feel plain without it. I love how much of an impact you can make with just your lips.
What pink lipsticks have I been constantly wearing?
Maybelline Color Sensational Matte in ‘Smoky Rose’ 987.
This lipstick is the most stunning dusty pink shade. It’s a highly pigmented creamy matte formula, that feels velvety on the lips and lasts really well. This lipstick collection from Maybelline is really high quality, if you’re looking for an affordable, decent matte lipstick I highly recommend these. I also have a lip liner from Maybelline called dusty rose that goes perfectly with this shade, which is also from the color sensational range.
Revlon Ultra HD Matte LipColor in Seduction.
This is more of a lip paint. I will admit it’s a slightly brown nude but it still counts. This is really long lasting, it is slightly drying after a while of wearing but nothing too off putting. It applies smoothly, it is a comfortable matte formula to wear. This colour looks so pretty with flushed cheeks and winged eyeliner, a fresh simple look!
L’Oreal Color Riche Matte Lipstick in Moka Chic.
Yes, this is very similar to Maybelline Smoky Rose but when on the lips it’s a completely different story. It always amazes me how shades can look so different once applied to the lips. I find this shade is great for everyday make up, and it just injects a flush of colour to the lips. I change it up slightly using different liners, depending on the look I want. I use a slightly deeper liner shade to really define and lift the lips, I have used L’Oreal lip liner couture in 630 beige with Moka Chic, it warms up the pink tone and gives a bolder look.
This is a slightly deeper pink, and I can’t get enough of it. The shade comes out completely different on everyone I’ve seen wear it, but it suits them all too, what’s not to love about that. This is the shade that made me start loving pink. It’s also a matte, I don’t really wear anything else. If you know me, you will know I can’t fault mac lipsticks!
Can anyone recommend a perfect lipstick?
