Hi! I’m so excited that February is here! It’s a short month at work (yay!) with a winter break for the students (double yay!) and it’s also the month of love. Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. I get to dress up and have a date night with the hubby, something we barely get to do anymore. I’m still thinking about outfit choices and makeup looks, so I decided to show you my top 5 favorite pink lipsticks for V-day.
1. MAC Candy Yum Yum; Mac Cosmetics, $16.00
Candy Yum Yum is an extremely popular color. It’s a bright, neon pink. It is gorgeous on all skin tones. I would wear it like this, but a liner such as MAC Magenta, NYX Purple Rain or NYX Fuschia would look nice with this lipstick. It has a matte finish.
2. Wet n Wild’s Penthouse Sweet (Fergie Centerstage collection) $3.49; Walgreens and CVS stores.
Penthouse Sweet is a nice blue based pink. It’s not too bright, but it’s not a toned down pink either. You only need about two swipes on the lips as this lipstick is very pigmented. It goes on really smooth as well.
3. Maybelline Pink Pop; Walgreens, $7.49
This is a really pretty pastel pink. You can apply this sheer, or you can build it up to your liking. I swiped this about three times so you can see the true color of this lipstick, but I would swipe this across my lips once just to give my lips a nice soft shade of pink. The liners I’ve used with this lipstick are MAC Magenta, NYX Purple Rain, NYX Brown Cafe’, and NYX Fuschia.
4. NYC Blue Rose; Rite Aid, $1.99
If you’re not feeling the light or bright pinks, how about a fuschia lip? Blue Rose is a fuschia shade with an iridescent finish. It is a great dupe for MAC’s Show Orchid. I’m so in love with this color. I don’t wear it often, but I get compliments on it every time I wear it. It’s also really affordable, so I would definitely reccomend this beautiful shade for your lipstick collection.
5. Wet n Wild’s Fuschianista (Fergie Centerstage collection); Walgreens and CVS stores
Now this is one of those lipstick colors I dream about. Fuschianista is a deep fuschia color. It is very pigmented, so you only need to swipe your lips once or twice to get this look. I swear these Fergie lipsticks are some of the best drug store lipsticks I’ve ever seen. They last a long time on the lips also. This lipsticks leaves a stain on your lips almost immediately though, so you need to work quickly with this one.
Be sure to let me know what are your favorite pinks for Valentine’s Day! I would love to try out more pink lipsticks.
Thank you so much for reading!
