Even though i tend to go for a red lip most days all year round, when Summer comes i get really attracted by lighter and “softer” shades like pink. And if with red lips i prefer to have a matte finish, with pink i can easily switch from glosses, to matte, sheer or creamy, no preference really. So here is a little round up of my favorite pink lip products, let me know which one you’d go for in Summer or any other season!
I don’t use glosses very much because i don’t like when my lips are sticky but this one isn’t at all. It’s kind of like a creamy texture and it feels absolutely lovely on. Plus that shade is just perfection for me, not a bright pink but not too nude either, i just love it! Oh, and it smells of chocolate, just sayin’…
2. Matte Lipstick in Raspberry Beret & 5. Lip Liner in Pressed Petals – H&M Beauty
I feel like H&M Beauty is a very underrated makeup line because their lip products for example, are just to die for and i never hear about them anywhere. I was already in love with their cream lipstick formula but now that i’ve tried the matte one too, i’m even more impressed. It’s not drying, very pigmented, the colors are beautiful and the matte lipstick lasts a really long time on the lips. I also really enjoy wearing the lip liner on it’s own because this pink shade is so delicate and feminine, i wish they would have the same color in the matte lipstick version actually!
The Smart lipsticks from Kiko are just wonderful! They are creamy, hydrating, shinny, they lasts quite well and there is such a wide variety of shade that there is one for absolutely everyone, what more can i say?! I also really like their idea of having a lip pencil matching each lipstick, so convenient! This pink shade is the one i go for the most, but i also have my eye on a gorgeous coral/red shade called Corallo which i think will be gorgeous for the holidays if i get a little bit of tan maybe. Also i mentioned the Urban Lipgloss in this previous post and what i love about them is that even though they’re called lipgloss, they’re super pigmented and actually feel like a cream lipstick on the lips, love that.
I don’t think anyone needs to hear more about this products as it’s already such a famous and loved item, but the one thing i really wanted to point out, is that even though i hate liquid lipsticks (like i mentioned in this previous post) for me the texture of these lip creams from NYX is perfect because it gives me that matte finish that i like but doesn’t dry my lips out. Now about that shade Milan, although it looks quite dark and plum on my hand, is a lot lighter and looks very much like it does in the tube when it’s on my lips.
The revelation!! That little green bullet is actually the best thing i’ve ever tried in my life! The principle is that it reacts with the warmth of your lips and turns them into the most flattering pink shade, FOR YOU. I absolutely love the idea and it works great, but what i love the most is that it’s a a also wonderful balm that really hydrates and nourish my lips. The only problem you may have with this product is that, since it really stains your lips and gives you a long lasting color, when you re-apply often, the color intensifies and you might end up with a very dark lip color at the end of the day... When i want to avoid that, i simply use a clear balm on top when i feel like my lips have enough color but need a bit of hydration.
Et voilà! What are you favorite products to get pretty pink lips? Let me know in the comment below! :*
