My Wearable Pinks

My Wearable Pinks

I’m not really a hard-core fan of the hue pink, but I realized how it has been making my eyes more feminine, especially the rose and warm pink eyeshadows. I then tried a few brands on my lips and see below for another color swatchfest!

Most of the brands here are available in department stores and that’s great. I’ve got matte to satin lippies with mostly pinks leaning towards the warmer side of the color spectrum. I think these are the kinds that are perfect #MLBB everyday lip look that doesn’t make me look cartooney or barbie.

On my arm with (below) and without (above) flash, the two darkest shades lean toward a warm fuchsia color while the middle ones have more brown undertones which are perfect for any skin tone.

Maybelline recently released new shades of warm dusty pinks which are banking on the neutral 80’s hue trend. I like the selection of colors especially Natural Beige and Salmon Pink.

On my lips, we can see the other qualities of the lippies:

  • Pink Sugar in Hotline Bling (matte lipstick) [approx PHP 300]* – this is just a very pigmented lippie from one of my favorite department store brands. The consistency and coverage is fierce with a very good fuchsia color, and name (reminds me of one Rihanna LOTD!)
  • Maybelline Rose Matte lipsticks (matte lipstick) {approx PHP 200]* – MNY matte lippies are definitely becoming true to the “matte” and OK in terms of consistency and coverage. On my lips, it still appears a bit semi-matte/cream tho but I like how unique the faded, dusty and a brown-orangey kinds of pinks they have. Salmon Pink is my favorite wearable hue (not too nude) from this line.
  • NYX Butter Lipstick (cream lipstick) [approx PHP 300]* – This has got to be my favorite amongst all these in terms of lightweight wear and smooth texture, despite it being a cream format. Color is a bit cool for my skin tone but I like how it truly feels like butter, just with a very good consistency and coverage.
  • L’Oreal Paris Color Riche (semi-matte lipstick) [approx PHP 400]* – ever since they launched Color Riche, I’ve known L’Oreal lippies with good rosewood colors. I heard that Nymphea, a dusty rose, is a lippie used by Solenn Heusaff in her bridal makeup look. It definitely looks wearable and blooming on the lips. The brand also released an exclusive pink collection named after the L’Oreal Paris ambassadors. Blake Lively (my fav!) color is a coral shade that’s not too neon or bright. I really like how sensual and buildable these are (on 1 coat, it will look sheen)

There’s also a lip crayon line [approx PHP 500] released by Burt’s Bees recently that also attracted me. They’re described as matte, but I think they’re more creamy but with a good full-coverage. On my arm swatch I had Carolina Coast which is a dusty rose (less brown tho). Of course, I’ve always liked how 100% natural the products from the brand are, with Butter, Kendi Oil, and Jojoba Oil to keep lips smooth and moisturized.
