When it comes to pink lips, I always find it a little hard to pick out ones that suit my skintone. I'm naturally quite tanned and when I go into a drugstore looking for a pink lipstick or gloss I tend to stand there for absolutely ages deciding. I always end up walking out with swatches all up my arm of every single pink shade I can see and settling on the odd one or two.
I've always found picking out a pink shade to suit my skin tone is the hardest over any other shade, here are my favourite all time pinks that I always reach for.
Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm // 110 Coquette - This works as a balm stain and can be applied quite sheer or you can build up the intensity of it. This pinkish red balm stain is sheer and glossy and very hydrating on the lips. It also contains slight shimmer to it that doesn't translate massively on your lips, but gives it a nice glossy finish.
Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer // 101 Celestial - This lip lacquer I'd describe to be like a pinkish brown, it's very pigmented like the other Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers, it can be applied sheer or be built up again to get the full intensity. This has quite a creamy finish, very glossy and also hydrating on the lips.
Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain // Rio Rush - The Revlon Moisture Stain is the most pigmented of them all, this shade I'd describe to be a bright hot pink. It's very bright and you only need one coat of this as it's highly pigmented, it's also very long lasting and gives the best pay off and also very hydrating.
Oriflame Giordani Gold Voluptuous Lipstick // Scarlet Veil - This lipstick is like a balm and lipstick, it applies quite sheer but definitely can be built up, it's very moisturising on the lips and gives a soft glossy finish. The shade is more of a soft pink when applied sheer but when built up looks more pinkish red on the lips.
Maybelline Colorsensational Elixir Lip // Blush Essence - This lipgloss applied is like a brown toned pink, it's quite sheer when applied and again can be built up to get the full intensity. These can feel a little sticky on the lips but that eventually wears off quite quickly and you're left with a sheer glossy pink finish which is quite hydrating and feels very moisturising on the lips.
