I love a bright pink lip shade I do, sure red is classic and all. But a pop of pink just makes everything lovely and fresh in my opinion. I’m not one to shy away from the super-bright pink shades either so wanted to pull together a mix of some old and new bright pink lipsticks to show you a bit of a mix of the shades.
Here we have, going from left to right….
MAC ‘Candy Yum Yum’ – About at bright as it gets this one. A matte shade so is one that your lips need to be in basically perfect condition (scrubbed, moisturised etc) or else they will shrivel like a prune – and I say this from experience. It’s a beauty of a colour though, almost neon in brightness!
Collection ‘Field Day Collection – Fucshia’ *- This is the shade from the new ‘Field Day’ collection called 3 ‘Fucshia’ and it really is. A super bright pink, hydrating and generally lovely.
Givenchy 208 ‘Rose Extravagant’ *- This is one of the Limited Edition shades so came in the gorgeous burgundy packaging. Another super bright for those not afraid of a bit of fucshia. The texture of this is probably my favourite of the bunch – pigmented and creamy, but not so creamy it just slips off.
NYX Butter Lipstick ‘Razzle Fiesta’* – This is a pretty special one, and if you like the colour of Candy Yum Yum, but don’t want a matte finish, then reach for this. It’s a very similar bright colour but without the matte finish texture.
Colour wise, Candy Yum Yum and NYX Butter shade are really very similar – super bright, dialled up Barbie pink. Then the Givenchy and the Collection are both also very similar – but the plus here is you can pick the one you fancy based on your budget.
NYX was my choice of shade today… it also handily matches one of my favourite bags!
What do you think of these various bright lipstick shades – dare to wear a super bright pink shade?
