Who’s excited for Spring and can’t wait to wear all the bright colors and look like a bright rainbow ? *raises hand* But I also can’t wait to start wearing pinks , which I actually am already though it’s not exactly spring here yet ! I do have a few pinks that I have been loving for perking up my face, from pinky nudes to pinks to coral pinks, we have them all !
I think there is something so alluring about the perfect pink pout, it just makes your whole face pop and brightens it! They brighten my day as well, I feel so much more excited and happy when I wear pink lipstick.
My favorite pinky nude of the moment is from the Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo in the shade Peacemaker (32$), it is a gorgeous pinky nude with a hint of brown and this shade will look different depending on you lip pigmentation as well. I have extremely pigmented lips so I line it with a slightly lighter shade of pink, and then apply this for a pink pop.
Lipstick perfection has already been reached when Tom Ford came out with his makeup line. The lipsticks from his range are some of my most reached and top favorites all year round. SO, it is no surprise that three of his shades made it into this post. Starting on the warm pinky side, I adore Collin (Indian Rose) and Cary (Casablanca). I picked these shades from the Lips & Boys range as I had my eye on his permanent lipstick range shades for a long time but wasn’t willing to plonk down 100$ + for two lipsticks ! These are still expensive at 36$ a pop. But so very worth it. Collin is more warm pink toned while Cary is more mauve toned. Gorgeous to start Spring with, but if your heart beats for a more coral pink color for Spring/Summer look no further than his Lip Color Sheer Paradiso (53$). There is nothing sheer about this beauty. It is a glossy warm coral, which isn’t too pink or too orange. Just perfection. Even worn as a stain, it is so pretty. This launched as a Summer release a couple of years ago and has been brought back last year. And this year they have created a small collection around this lipstick, I just bought the eyecolor duo Paradiso, which is gorgeous. Hopefully, I should have a review up soon !
Staying with the warm pink family, my go to for a matte lip look has been either the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dolce Vita (27$)and the Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Double Dare (LE, 21$). Both are kinda similar, with Dolce Vita being a bit more coral and Double Dare being more pink. While the Double Dare lipstick is LE, it is available in the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick line. But I would hunt down the lipstick if you can, as it is more forgiving as a formula !
Now, for the pink pop ! Sometimes, I like having statement pink lips. There is something extremely heady about pink power pout. I like a good red, but I enjoy pink as much, if not more on occasion. Meet Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Alpha (17$). With a name like that you know how much of a statement it is. It is a STUNNING matte pink, which is not too cool or too warm. It goes with my olive/warm skin tone and doesn’t clash but is not warm by any means. My favorite for really summery warm days, with a crisp white blouse and jeans !
So, what are your favorite pinks ? Did any of these make your list ?
