Hello beauties! Recently I did a guest post over on Chaitra’s blog and I figured I’d share it on mine as well in case you missed it. So Valentine’s Day might be over but who cares? We don’t need a special day to give love and feel loved, am I right? One thing I will kinda miss about V-day though is the pretty pink makeup that goes with it. There are so many tutorials that show us how to look out best for the holiday, using subtle, natural pink-y makeup, which I simply adore! Why stopping at Valentine’s though? We can (and we should) recreate those looks any day of the year when we’re going out on a date with our special someone! My main makeup focus while doing them is always a lipstick, so I decided to show you my top three pink lipsticks, perfect for a date. They are all pretty and natural and you can’t go wrong with them. Oh, and a little secret? Guys love pink pouts! ;)
YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in 07 Lingerie Pink
Pretty pastel pink lipstick in a breathtaking packaging? Yes please! YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in Lingerie Pink is my ideal companion when it comes to pink lips. The shade is to die for and it compliments my skin tone perfectly. I don’t know how it would look on darker skin, but I definitely recommend swatching it because it’s waaay too pretty to miss and the glossy finish will win you over. The formula of this beaut is incredible as well – it’s super moisturizing and feels buttery soft on the lips. The pigmentation is insane and lasts on my lips for about two hours. One tip though – make sure you exfoliate your lips before wearing the lipstick as it tends to cling into imperfections. Once that’s done though you will have the perfect pinky lip, which will steal your partner’s heart!
Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake
I love me a good budget buy lipstick and the Revlon Lip Butters seem to make the cut! One of my favorite date-appropriate lippies is their Strawberry Shortcake butter. I am head over heels in love with its gorgeous cool-toned candy pink shade. It is absolutely stunning and the blue undertones make it that much more special. It is my go-to pink at the moment and I love how natural and romantic it looks. The formula is spot on as well. Creamy? – check! Opaque? – check! Moisturizing? – double check! I highly recommend you get involved with Strawberry Shortcake – it’s love and will turn heads! ;)
MAC lipstick in Angel
Meet my favorite pink-y nude lipstick – Angel by MAC! This pale rosy shade is ideal for those of you who don’t fancy wearing full on pink on their lips but still want some nice pinkish hue. Angel is super creamy and I adore its subtle sheeny finish. This is my perfect no-makeup-makeup lippie as it looks super natural but still enhances your look beautifully. Angel is slightly drying but it’s nothing that a tiny bit of lip balm underneath can’t solve. I love that is very buildable and lasts hours on the lips. Little winner!
Have you tried any of these lipsticks? Which one is your favorite? What is your ideal date night lipstick?
Lots of love,
