I've become sort of obsessed with pink lips lately. And not just any pink, bright pink! This is out of my comfort zone for sure. I usually stick with nudes and lighter shades of pink. Maybe it's the winter weather and lack of sunshine that has me gravitating towards these bright colors. Whatever the reason, I'm enjoying branching out. These three are my most recent purchases.
L to R: Maybelline Color Sensational in Fifth Ave. Fuchsia, L'Oreal Infallible 6 HR in Bloom, Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie
This is a great one to start out with if you are just venturing into the world of brighter pink lips. Gives a pop of color without being too bold. The formula is a tad thick but does last a long time depending on what you are eating/drinking.
This is a great mid-tone bright pink. Not too shocking but more pink than the one before. My only issue with the Lip Butters is the name. You automatically think this is going to be a lip balm type of product. Not so. I actually think they are nice first going on but can get very drying within 1-2 hours of wear time.
And lastly, the WOW factor! This shade is not for the timid. This is a get noticed lip color for sure. For as bright as it is, it's actually very wearable and I think would look great on a lot of different skin tones, hair colors, etc. It's shockingly pink when you first open the tube. It took some getting used to on my part. If it's a tad too bright, I suggest blotting most of it off with a tissue. You're then left with a nice stain. And I mean stain. This stuff is hard to get off even when you're trying to at the end of the day. The more I wear it, the more I get used to the color and like how it brightens up my face and the rest of my outfit.
