Pink lips

When it comes to make up there's nothing I love more than the pinkest of pink lipsticks. Lipstick is probably my top make up love and my collections of pink lip products is a little excessive. Whether it lipsticks, balms or glosses I want them all in as many shades of pink as possible, the brighter the better!

Most of my lipsticks are from MAC because I really do believe they are the best when it comes to colour, texture and quality plus they are sort of reasonably priced. The only lipstick I have from Benefit is My Treat and the colour is a lovely peachy pink, perfect for during the day. From MAC I have ink Nouveau, Hello Kitty Big Bow, Saint Germain, Viva Glam Gaga, Impassioned and Dane Edna Coral Pump. My favourites are actually the Hello Kitty and Dame Edna limited addition lippies because the colours are so intense. The Rimmel Rose Sorbet is a kind of coral colour and really nice when you want to keep your make up quite minimal. Forgot to take a picture of my MAC Speed Dial which is a lovely mid tone pink.

I'm a bit of a lip gloss junkie too and love putting them on over lipstick to make the finish more glossy or even to create a new colour. From left to right is Benefit Kiss Me, NARS Rosy, MAC Pink Manish, Barry M 11, MAC Hello Kitty Nice Kitty, Benefit Pocket Pal and Ruby and Millie Sunset. Pocket Pal is great because you can build up a really intense red/pink colour and I love putting the slightly less pink ones over a really intense lipstick.

I have a few squeeze tubes as well including Too Faced Mood Swing and Anatomicals I Never Fake Strawberry Milkshake. The Too Faced one is amazing because the colour intensity increases depending on your lip concentration.

When I go out I always end up bringing so many different lip products out with me because I never know which I like best! I ended up putting at least 3 colours on at once and constantly change the colour throughout the evening for fun. Because I have so many different colours, everything lasts for ages, especially since I don't really wear make up during the day time but just for when I go out.

I've spotted a purple/pink shade lipstick and gloss from NARS which I love but I'm on the look out for a cheaper alternative, possibly from Barry M!

What's your favourite lip colour x

  4. I'm a fan of a pink lip too. I highly recommend Revlon's Cherries in the Snow. It's a raspberry pink and it's really flattering on paler skin-tones. Gorgeous!
    I've fallen for No 7's Caramel Kiss lately. Not bad considering I only bought it because of the name.

  5. I LOVE this post! I also adore MAC lipsticks, I've only started my collection like two years ago, so it's slowly growing. My first MAC lipstick was Myth (I was obsessed with Diana Vicker's nude lips on XFactor) and shortly after I bought Saint Germain. Recently I've purchased Viva Glam Gaga (pink) and Viva Glam Gaga 2 (nude) and I'm loving these two. MAC lipsticks really do stay for hours and are very economical. :)

    P.S. I also invested in MAC's Morange to have must-have this season's orange lips :)

  6. I bought a pink rimmel lippy the other week but it didn't suit me at all, made my lips look smaller actually so I think I'll keep to reds and my trusty niva lip balm :D I think pink looks much better on people with blonde hair too so you're in there ha. You're right about mac though, the best I reckon!

  10. Oooh, lipstick!!!
    I am planning on doing a lipstick video myself soon, so loved reading this.
    Someone else mentioned Cherries in the Snow, and I tried it today in Superdrug and found it's really similar to my reddy-pink Rimmel lipstick that I'm wearing in my profile pic. It's really nice.
    I bought Pink Nouveau on a trip to a MAC counter at the lady's suggestion, so hadn't read any reviews of it beforehand. I adore the colour but just cannot stand the lipstick itself. It goes all patchy and horrible and bitty. I hate it and am so gutted, because obviously £13.50's a lot to spend on a lipstick! I've only worn it 3 times :(
    Although saying that, I really want to get Candy Yum Yum from the new MAC Quite Cute collection.
    Oh my, sorry this comment is so long!

  12. You have so many!! I too have a bit of a collection myself but am very jealous of yours :)

  13. My favourite lipstick is actually a red-pink called 'funny face' by NARS. Loooove it. It's my go to colour and it sorta stains the lips so it's really good but pricier than MAC. I usually get all my MAC lipsticks using their back to MAC programme!

  14. Your collection is amazing.

  15. Lipstick is the best - can't say I'm a fan of gloss though (my hair gets stuck in it!). I'm really loving Autumn Berries by 17 at the moment. The colour is really easy to wear, it's still quite bright but not as harsh on my complexion x
