Pretty In Pink: My Top Five Pink Lipsticks

Hello my lovelies, I have some huge apologising to do! I've been a very bad blogger and had a small break due to losing my memory card. Ok, so I found my memory card a few days ago but then my addiction to Pretty Little Liars grew stronger and I have dedicated every spare minute to catching up on it. Four seasons later and I'm back to my blog. To make it up to my poor little blog, I have decided to do my top five pink lip products just in time for valentines day. It also ties in perfectly to the basic makeup looks I have seen around lately. I find pink shades can be hit and miss especially with my skintone but here are some that work for me. 

1.Natural Collection Tinted Lip Balm (£1.99)

I hadn't tried this brand before and I was having one of those I want to look effortless days so when I spotted this I shoved it in my basket. I'm not usually a lip balm/ gloss kind of girl but I actually really like this. It's great for work/school as it has quite a subtle tint to it. It definitely helps to achieve the 'I woke up like this' look. Another bonus is that this sinks into my lips and feels as though it is hydrating them instead of drying them out. 

2. Rimmel 006 Pink Blush (£4.99)

I remember when I bought this, it was the pink shade that I had dreamed of but could never find. This is perfect for valentines day as it has such a beautiful tone to it and definitely looks kissable. This is a light pink shade but it is half way to barbie pink once applied. I know some girls really suit barbie pink but I'm not one of them so I just apply a little less of the lipstick and blot it and it creates a gorgeous finish. I find that the lasting finish range are a little drying so I just make sure I exfoliate and wear a lip balm underneath it. Any girl who loves a pink lipstick should check this one out.

3.Rimmel Kate 16 (£5.49)

Isn't this such a gorgeous colour?! It has a slight coral tone to it which I think is perfect for coming out of the winter blues as it brightens my day up. When applied to my lips, it looks slightly more pink than my swatch but it does look amazing. Kate never lets me down with her lipsticks. It's such a handy colour to have when you feel like a red is too much but you fancy more than a nude. 

4.MAC Viva Glam Nicki Satin AB1 (£15.50)

This was quite a bold choice for me as it is quite a vibrant pink. I must admit, I had a love hate relationship with this to begin with as the colour can be too bright for my pale little face. I started applying this with a brush and using a little less. After blotting this is truely gorgeous. I like the fact that this is easy to tone down as you can create lots of different looks with it. I'm not sure if you can still buy this range from MAC but I do know they have a Miley Cyrus range which contains a hot pink shade similar to this.

5.Clinique Chubby Stick Mega Melon (£17)

Ok, so who doesn't love chubby sticks? They're so moisturising and super easy to apply. Clinique have a lovely range of shades but here is a pink that skirts the borders of nude. This joins the natural collection lip tint in the "I woke up like this" section. It adds such a subtle tone to my lips so that I don't look completely washed out but it doesn't look like I've put too much effort into my makeup. It also adds a slight sheen to your lips which is so pretty. I find this is quite long lasting and as it is moisturising, it should withstand some lip locking if you're out on a date this Saturday. This is definitely my safe choice if I fancy a change. 

What's your favourite pink shade?

  1. I love chubby sticks! I'm never quite sure if pink suits me, but I really like some of these. Is pretty little liars good? Or is that a silly question seeing as you're addicted to it?!

    1. It's hard to find a pink that suits me but I actually really like these. Pretty little liars is amazing, I thought it was going to be stupid but it's so addictive. I've actually been having nightmares from it haha I've been watching way too many before bed!

  3. Viva glam is always amazing! I love that you've got a good mix of high and low end makeup because I think people think just because its cheap it means it can't be great - some of my favourite makeup was like £1 haha but it's nice to have some nice expensive treats in there too. Awesome post as usual hun! xx

    1. Thanks Dora! The MAC one was a little too harsh it just needed to be toned down a bit. It's still really pretty. Thanks for commenting!
