Pink Lipsticks Comparisons and Review

pink lipsticks
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
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
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 born with it
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 pink please
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 persian melon
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 paparazzi pink
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.

revlon carnation
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 baby pink
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 creme cup
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 lady gaga
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).

What's your favourite pink lipstick?

OMG I can't stand lipsticks that leave shimmers on your lips after you remove them, this is a big no-no for me! I got 2 L'Oreal lipsticks that are like this and it's such a shame, because they're both very pretty! Fave pink lipstick? I'd say NYX Thalia! :)

persian melon is sooo pretty !
one thing i don't like about NYX round lipsticks is 'cause they smell and taste like SOAP and they're quite drying that they show the cracks of my lips =\ im not sure if i like them anymore, i've sold half of them away.

I love this post! I've been wanting to try Strawberry Milk. How's the formula? Does it make lips feel dry?

@kali - to me the NYX lipsticks are pretty drying, good pigmentation though, and strawberry milk is like stark white pink, a really good colour.

They all look awesome on you, seriously. I wish Creme Cup looed lie that on me, but unfortunately, it doesn't. Ahh, the joyds of being dark skinned..

You should try Impassioned and Speed Dial. I'd love to see how it would look on you! xx

Beautiful pink lipsticks! I love pink lipsticks too! I think 80% of my lippies are pinks. I also like Maybelline and The Face Shop.
