Pink & Pouty - Lipstick Favourites

Pink Lipstick. Something I (and probably most of you) wear most days. Unless I'm wearing some form of red clothing and have to match or just fancy a nude lip, nine times out of ten I will pick a shade of pink when completing my make-up for the day/evening.
So with that in mind I thought I would share with you my top picks for pink lipstick.

There are hundreds of shades of pink out there on the market and I mean hundreds. Alot of the time I will pick up a lipstick and have to think to myself "do you have a colour similar to this already?" normally the answer is 'possibly' and normally the thought is 'oh well'  and I'll purchase it anyway because well... no-one can have too many lipsticks.

But even though I own countless lipsticks and lipglosses (storage is becoming an issue) I do have my favourites and the ones I think of as my old reliables which live both in my handbag and make-up bag.  Most of the lipsticks I will show are just high-street drugstore brands which, sometimes, are no more than a few pounds (so are totally worth the investment) and a couple are mac, so a little more expensive but I believe their lipsticks are worth the prices they charge.
 I am not 100% positive if all of these lipsticks are still available for purchase but it is still worth a look online if not if you wanted to try them out.




1. e.l.f. mineral lipstick - Nicely Nude
2. Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick - 110 Pink Gossip
3. Barry M Lip Paint - 140
4. MAC Satin Lipstick - Viva Glam Nicki
5. Barry M Lip Paint - 146
6. Rimmel Kate Moss - 20
7.  MAC Frost Lipstick- Trimming Talk
8. Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter - 075 Lollipop



I wear all of these for both daytime and evening looks and always pair them with a lipgloss to give them an extra shine (my favourite being the Barry M Lipgloss in Bubblegum which I mentioned in my Colours Of The Rainbow Tag post).
 As you can see from the photos all of these lipsticks are all pretty moisturising and I love the silky smooth feel they give my lips as well as the strong colour. The swatches on my arm are on average around 3 layers of the product, although not all of them needed that many - the MAC lipsticks are hugely pigmented.


Here's a few photos to give you an idea of what they look like on.


I would love to know if any of you also use these and what your favourite pink lipsticks are (as I'm always looking for more!).
