Five Favourites: Bold Pink Lip Edition
To kick off this year’s week of Valentine’s Day posts, I thought I’d revisit a popular post from last year; Five Favourites: Red Lip Edition.
There hasn’t been much of a change to my favourite reds, so I thought I would focus on another typical Valentine’s Day shade; pink. Today’s focus will be on the bold, bright versions of this popular colour.
Lip Gloss (opaque): MAC Dare To Wear Lipglass in Gimmie That!
This is a peculiar gloss in that the texture is quite dry. It’s not uncomfortable to wear, but I often layer a clear gloss on top for even more dimension.
Lip Gloss (sheer): Estée Lauder Pure Color Lip Gelée in Electric Pink
I was originally disappointed with how sheer this is, but it’s perfect for that subtle pop of glossy glory.
Lip Liner: MAC Lip Pencil in Embrace Me
Great for those into vibrant pink lips! The perfect blend of bold, bright, hot pink without being too neon. Works great to bump up a sheer gloss or to perfect a similar shade of lipstick.
Lipstick: Cover Girl Lip Perfection in Spellbound
A drugstore gem that is not only insanely pigmented, but applies smoothly and wears quite well.
Liquid Lipstick: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Anime
True neon pink. Using less makes it more traditionally ‘wearable’, but deserves to be worn at full strength.
