Think Pink

A year or two back and you would have not have found a single pink lipstick in my stash, nor nail polish, I had a single Natural Collection Rosy pink blush but that was the extent of my daring. I was always made to believe pink was just a colour off limits to the likes of redheads like me, that and yellow clothing. Too bright, too much contrast, but now I embrace pink it all it's rosy shades and hues.

Baby pinks are obviously much easier to pull off and match with clothing and my top lip products I've been reaching for in this case are the Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Lemonade, a gorgeous milky pink, and Topshop's Pillow Talk, another light baby pink. Both are so easy to wear and give a subtle wash of colour for every day wear. However, it's the bolder hot pinks that are really doing it for me this summer with Revlon's Wild Watermelon Lip Butter (seen worn above) and Topshop's All About Me bringing a gorgeous pop of colour. I really want to try MAC's Candy Yum Yum and Please Me next!  Do you think I can pull it off?

As for blush and nail polish, pastel pinks are my go to. Essie's Ballet Slippers has adorned my fingertips many a time this spring/summer, with Essie Fiji being on my lust list to try next. You might have also seen my post on Dainty Doll makeup, I took full advantage of their sale and I'm so glad I did. Their pink blush in 001 and 002 adds a very subtle dusting of colour that compliments my paler complexion perfectly and can be layered on without fear of the dreaded clown cheek look, win! 

What are your top pink cheek and lip offerings?

  1. Ooh this has inspired me! I'm more of a coral girl.

  2. I'm much more of a coral girl, I can't stop buying coral bits at the moment. The revlon lip butter looks like a lovely shade though, I might be persuaded to join the pink side x

    Wild Watermelon looks beautiful on you! I always thought it would be more or a red on the lips and convinced myself I have moreee than enough red! I'm too olivey for pale pinks no matter how much I love them on other people, and don't have many bright pinks at the minute although I'm going to change this soon haha...hopefully with Wild Watermelon ;)
