Pink is one of those colors that you just can't avoid when you're a makeup girl! Even thought blue is my favorite color, when it comes to makeup I love my pinks! I have an extremely light skin tone so I tend to opt for pink lips, I always have pink cheeks, and I adore pink on my eyes. So, I thought I would write a post about my favorite pink makeup items.
|Illamasqua's Hussy; Nars' Orgasm|
First up, blushes! I only have two high end blushes, and I adore both of them! I've written a reivew of Hussy here, and Orgasm is extremely popular-you've heard it raved about unless you've been living under a rock! I love having an option for a matte blush or a shimmery blush. Orgasm is more of a peachy pink, while Hussy is more of a bright bubblegum pink. I love how my look can change based on which blush I use!
|Urban Decay's Sin|
One of my all-time favorite eyeshadows is Sin by Urban Decay. It's my go-to shadow for sweeping all over the lid. I feel like so many colors look great in the crease with this on the lid! It is a shimmery, light pink. I love how light it is, because it can be used for a light look or paired with darker colors for a more dramatic look. It's so pigmented and wonderful. My only problem with this eyeshadow is my problem with all my Urban Decay powder shadows: they tend to wear off after a while. Its so disappointing to get home and see that my eyeshadow has gone wonky.
|Nars' Chiuaua, Topshop's Ooh La La, Revlon's Berry Sorbet|
My go-to lip gloss is definitely Nars' Chiuaua. It is such a pretty "dusty rose" pink. It has a wonderful formula, so it isn't sticky. It isn't a super dark color, but it is absolutely beautiful. My matte, bright pink lipstick, Topshop's Ooh La La, is another fave. I've literally worn it everywhere this summer! I reviewed here. Revlon's Lip Butter in Berry Sorbet is a great lip choice. As the name suggests, it has more of a berry pink tone rather than a pinky pink tone (if that makes any sense at all!). I love adore the lip butters, and this was my go-to lip in February and March. I like how its a little bit darker, but it is still a pretty pink.
|OPI's Bubble Bath, Divine Swine, and Strawberry Margarita|
Y'all know I love my nail polishes! The first pink nail polish I love is Bubble Bath by OPI. It's a light pink that barely shows up. I like it because there's just a hint of pink on my nails. It is a very healthy look, and would definitely work for a school or workplace that doesn't allow crazy nail polishes. Speaking of crazy nail polishes, Divine Swine by OPI is just that! My sister got this for me for Christmas a couple years ago. It's from the Muppet Collection, and it's Miss Piggy's color. It is pink glitter with big silver flakes. I love how unique it is with the silver flakes. It's so fun to wear, and I always get so many complements. Be sure to wear a top coat, though, because it can come off easily due to the fact it is pure glitter! OPI's Strawberry Margarita has been on my toes all summer! I talked about it in detail in this post.
Here are swatches of all the products mentioned:
