Favourite Pink Lip Products.

Pink shades on the lips and cheeks will always be my favourite colours to wear and I love that there are such a variety of shades! I totally think that even if there’s only a slight difference in shade to a colour you already have it’s perfectly fine to buy it! I think I may have a slight make up problem but I don’t care because it’s pretty! I’ve picked out a few of my most favourite pink lipsticks and lipglosses because I wanted to take pretty pictures of them and waffle on about how much I love them to someone! No one in my ‘real life’ life cares, which is understandable, but I’m sure someone, somewhere might care. Maybe?

Revlon Baby Pink from the ColorBurst line is definitely one of the easiest lipsticks to wear ever. I have super dry lips at the moment, thanks a lot winter, but you totally can’t tell when I’m wearing this because it’s so glossy and lovely. The colour is beautiful, it goes with pretty much everything and I think everyone should check this shade out!

Wet ‘n Wild Retro Pink is such an insane colour and I just adore it because it’s so crazy! This is one I only wear in the summer time with a neutral face but it look absolutely gorgeous when worn right. On my lips it verges on looking completely purple but you can tone it down by applying it lightly and putting a baby pink gloss over the top if you don’t want such a statement lip. This was so so cheap and well worth every penny!

Revlon Pink Pout is gorgeous and this is my second tube of it. Even though it’s matte I don’t find it difficult to wear at all and the colour is beautiful. It’s almost a matte and slightly deeper version of Revlon Baby Pink and I love this with most looks. You get such a good colour pay off and I reach for this so much. If you don’t like the matte look it’s easy to pair with a gloss and this is one you can easily wear all year round.

Rimmel Vintage Pink is one of the more unusual lipsticks I have and although I don’t find it as wearable as some of the other shades, I love it a lot. On my lips the purpley undertone of the lipstick really shows through and it ends up being a deep mauve rose shade that I love to wear with flawless skin and lots of mascara. It’s got a glossy finish so you can just apply and go which I love. I really really love this shade.

Illamasqua’s Liar is a super pretty light baby pink with slight lavender undertones. This is one of their lipsticks that has a shimmer finish so it’s not as difficult to wear as the mattes and I really love the formula. I do have to make sure my lips are well moisturised so I can’t wear this as often as some of my other lipsticks but I just love how this manages to brighten up my complexion. At £15.50 it’s on the pricier side but I think it’s so worth it for the colour!

Illamasqua’s Fable lipstick will probably always be my favourite shade of all time. It is a matte so they can be tricky to wear but I find using a lip brush makes them much easier to apply. Fable was my first Illmasqua lipstick and it’s the most beautiful bright rose colour that looks especially gorgeous in spring and summer with a fresh face, subtle pink cheeks and a pretty summer dress. I instantly feel summery whenever I wear this and I just absolutely adore it! I never want to be without this, ever!

For a long time I haven’t really been a lipgloss person and I’m definitely not one to spend a lot of money on one. I’m not really sure why because I wouldn’t hesitate to spend a fair bit of money on a blush, but for lipgloss I always go for the cheaper options.

Rose Wet from Alva was sent to me by the company quite a while ago and I think it’s the most beautiful light pinky lavender with silver shimmers. This is quite a pricey lipgloss so I’m not sure if I would try any other colours in case I didn’t like them, but I have a feeling I will be purchasing another one of these when mine runs out. It’s the perfect accompaniment to so many pink lipsticks in my collection and it also looks beautiful on its own. It has a really lovely formula that’s not sticky and the scent is lovely! If you don’t mind splurging a little on lipgloss I’d really recommend this one!

Lambada from Australis was a gift from my beautiful friend Tennille who lives all the way over in sunny Australia and I’m not sure if this brand is available anywhere else. If you can get hold of Australis then I really recommend looking at this gloss because it really is the perfect milky baby pink shade. If you’re ever stuck for what to wear or you just want to look extra pretty and feel super girlie then this is the shade you need! This is absolutely my favourite lipgloss ever, the colour is beautiful and it smells and tastes divine!

I have I’m With the Band and Fresh Squeezed from Benefit in a double ended lipgloss and although Fresh Squeezed is more of a coral with a slight pink edge I think it’s totally gorgeous and I just had to mention it here. I’m With the Band is a gorgeous pinky purple with a bit of gold and I think it’s quite unusual. It’s unique to my collection at least and I reach for this a lot if I want to bring out any slight purple undertones in my lipsticks. Benefit glosses are quite pricey so I think I would only purchase these in a gift set but I would absolutely love to try more shades. They smell lovely too!

Finally Babydoll is one of the plumping lip glaze’s from Eyes Lips Face and I keep meaning to try more shades in the range because I love this one so much. On the lips the colour is only very subtle but it’s so easy to apply and looks lovely over any lipstick or on its own. The clear plumping side is amazing too, I’m not sure if it really does make my lips look fuller but I love the taste and the weird tingly sensation it gives. For £1.50 I think these are great and one day I will finally get around to picking up a few more shades!
