As someone who doesn’t love wearing a red lip all that often, I was surprised to find a few in my collection. Today I’m running through their formulas, showing comparison swatches, and sharing my favourite ways to rock a red lip (however rare that is!)
I love a good pink highlighter, in fact, I’d pick it over a traditional champagne or pale gold one! But there are so many other shades out there too that make for a fun pop of colour. Here are mine:
After transitioning to cruelty free makeup, I found I couldn’t purchase half the brands I used to love. Here are my top picks for completely cruelty free makeup brands.
I’ve been trying to get more into red lipsticks this year, but still find myself struggling to wear them due to their bold colouring. Plus, as they fade throughout the day, there’s a really obvious contrast between red lipstick and my natural lip colour (unlike a nude pink lipstick).
In May, ColourPop turned three, and celebrated in typical ColourPop fashion – lots of promotions and a few limited edition releases including the “I want a pony” birthday bag, and their birthday eyeshadow.
I picked up Bestie from ColourPop’s Ultra GLossy line, as I’ve fallen back in lov with glosses. My favourite is Anastasia Beverly Hills, but with a $31 AUD price tag, I needed to try a cheaper option (and one that’s cruelty-free).
Bestie is described as being a creme mid-tone pink, however does look lighter on ColourPop’s website. The description on their website is accurate though.
The gloss glides on beautifully, and doesn’t feel sticky or too heavy on the lips. I found this to have good pigmentation, with one swipe providing almost opaque coverage.
I also think this would make for a nice topper on other nudey-pink shades, especially over liquid lipsticks.
When ColourPop’s next free shipping promo comes around, what should I try next, or better yet, what are you going to try? Let me know in the comments below!
While adding ColourPop glosses to my shopping cart, I decided to pop an Ultra Metallic in to test out. I didn’t realise just how metallic this formula is though!
