So my nude lipsticks post was quite the hit, so I decided to do one for pink lipsticks too. My collection has grown this week with the 50% off lipsticks sale at Rexall/Pharma Plus in Canada. Unfortunately yesterday was the last day of that sale, so I went over and got a few more. I like pinks, maybe a bit more than nudes, pale light ones are my favourites. I know MAC has TONS of gorgeous pinks, and I am hoping to get some soon, please post your favourite MAC pinks below.
NYX Harmonica is a frosty baby pink. If you don't like frost, I would not recommend this one, since it definitely has that to it.
NYX Strawberry Milk is a lovely creme baby pink, it's like the flat version of Harmonica above, much more wearable because it's not that ugly frosty look. Although be sure that you use lipblam under these cause I find they really show the lines in your lips.
Maybelline's Born with it is a nudey pink, it's not very pigmented and I am not crazy about the texture. This one is pretty much the colour of my natural lips. I have read that people say these either smell like coconut or playdoh, well mine is the playdoh, so they are pretty icky to apply. Also this one leaves shimmers on your lips after you remove it.
Maybelline's Pink Please is almost the same colour as Born with it (above), but a bit more pink. I like this one better. However, I've had mine for a few months and it's gotten really hard. Like I have to pull it across my lips to get the lipstick to come off... I don't know why it did this, not a good sign. Also, this one has that terrible playoh smell. Ewwwy.
Revlon's Persian Meon is a hot, fuschia pink colour. This is part of the Moon Drops collection, it has the green packaging. The lipstick itself smells very much like old lady! but.. the colour is totally hot. I love this one.
This is my favourite drugstore pink, Revlon's Pink Pout. This is in the matte collection, be sure to moisturize your lips because applying this one because it can be quite drying and doesn't go on very smoothly if your lips are dry. This is a pale cool-toned pink with lilac undertones.
Revlon's Gentlemen Prefer Pink is a pretty pink with some frost in it. It's a classy pink. And the texture is very nice, something that I have noticed with all the Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks, they all feel really great on your lips.
Revlon's Paparazzi Pink is a pink with purple undertones. I am not crazy about the frost/shimmer in this, but the colour is pretty. It applies a lot lighter than it looks in the tube, which disappointed me.
Carnation, which is from the Revlon Colorburst collection is a cool-toned bright pink. This one is okay, not my favourite from the Colorbursts though.
Revlon's Baby Pink from the Colorburst collection is a frosty pale pink, not very pigmented, disappointed with this one. It looks paler in person than it does in that picture. My main problem with these lipsticks is they are so creamy that they are breaking! I may have to write to Revlon about this one in particular, which after 3-4 uses is dipping into the bottom of the tube, on the sides and is cracking all over. Not nice at all.
MAC's Creme Cup is a nudey pink colour. Very hydrating, really pretty colour, love this one. It's described as a light blue pink on the mac website, I don't really see this on myself however. And its a cremesheen finish, so it's absolutely lovely.
MAC's Gaga is one of the nicest blue pinks ever, it is really pale, but bright pink. You can build it up to look sheerer or more pigmented, because it is a lustre finish. Definitely get this one while you still can (I have a backup).
