Beauty | Pink Lip Edit


Hi blog friends!!

Since summer (term used loosely) began I have been a big fan of wearing a pink lip. I am definitely a nude/brown/red kinda gal but I feel really girly and cute whenever I have pink lips (although with my blonde hair I run the risk of looking Barbie-esk), but who cares!

I picked my top 4 lipsticks that I have been reaching for over the past month when I'm feeling that pink lip!

MAC Amplified Crème Finish - Chatterbox £15.50

MAC lipsticks are just little bullet shaped holy grails! Chatterbox was one of the first pink MAC lipsticks I got (my first was Girl About Town which is a firm fave). This lipstick is a red toned pink and is SO bright, you literally can't miss it! This is the shade that makes me feel like barbie because it is so bold and very girlie, a true Barbie pink and I love it!

Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick - Ballet Slipper £9.50

I actually only got this because I needed a certain amount to get free delivery on Beauty Bay haha! I just picked it without really giving it any thought, it just looked like a pretty pink and I love liquid lipsticks so I didn't really know what to expect. 
I was so surprised at the quality of this product, especially for the price. The application is a little patchy but has a beautiful finish and dries fairly quick (maybe even quicker than Kylie's).

YSL Rouge Volute Shine - #8 £26

I have mentioned this lipstick before in my Spring Lipstick post. So I won't go too much into detail but this lipstick is...heavenly! Not only does it smell incredible (like watermelon) but the quality and colour pay off is the best of any lipstick I own. I know the price is tres ridiculous but damn it these are worth every penny!!

LOC Millie Mackintosh Ultra Gloss Lip Pencil - Bohemian Rose £9

I got this lip pencil in one of my Birchboxes (it is exclusive to their site so if you want to check it out go to https://www.birchbox.co.uk/shop/loc-millie-ultra-gloss-lip-penciland like the Gerard Cosmetics one I didn't really think that much of it. 
It wasn't until I was getting ready to go out for one of my best friends birthday meals that I decided to give it a go. I knew I wanted a pink lip and saw this just lying at the side of my make up bag and thought that will look super cute if I use Koko K with it and damn I was right. 
It also quite Barbie-ish but it makes a really nice base for any other lipstick. The formula isn't as buttery as I thought it would be, it is quite dry so your lips need to be prepped and moisturised for this to look nice on its own, but in saying that it is very pigmented and is long wearing.



What is your favourite pink lipstick?

Lots of love
