Hyperbole? What hyperbole? I have literally just turned my house upside down looking for one of these lipsticks, but whilst I was at it, I was reminded of all these other pink lipsticks that I own, so I thought I’d compile them into one lovely big post whilst I was at it.
From left to right here we have:
Boots No7 in Soft Ruby
Bare Minerals Moxie in Risk it All
ByTerry Rouge Terrybly in Cherry Cherry
Delilah Colour Intense in Stiletto
Clinique Colour Pop in Punch Pop
Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope in Private Party and
Laura Mercier Creme Smooth in Fresh Raspberry
Some of you might notice that I prefer an intense pink, and I hover around the red/pink border a lot. What I don’t like is a pink that contains too much white, which I find just really doens’t meld with my skintone. Here are the swatches in the same order as above:
ByTerry Cherry Cherry (third from left) is probably the most traditionally “hot pink” or fuchsia out of this bunch, as it contains the most blue, and Delilah’s Stiletto is the most “Barbie” pink, having a lot more white that the other shades. I’m not a huge fan of glossy finishes in my pinks either (I am a fussy pink wearer!), but the Laura Mercier (far right) is probably the glossiest pink in the bunch.
Delilah Stiletto is something that I’ve been, frankly, terrified to wear, as it looks very white-based in the tube, and I look dead in white-based lipsticks, but I really like this one on:
It’s a little lighter than the other six, without looking too “candy” or pastel on the lips.
By Terry Cherry Cherry is actually quite subtle for a fuchsia:
Bare Minerals Moxie in Risk it All is an old, old favourite, and it has an excellent nourishing texture:
Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope has beautiful packaging, and is a gloriously featherlight texture. It’s not quite matte, but the colour lasts and lasts, and you can barely feel it on the lips.
Clinique Pop Punch Pop is probably my favourite of the recent Colour Pop releases from Clinique. It is a bright, shiny punchy pink with a hint of blue. Lasting time isn’t that fabulous, but they’re nice and light and lovely.
No7 Soft Ruby was one of the shades I was “colour-matched” to at Boots, and it’s a definite winner. A lovely soft pink-red, this is a very easy colour for me to wear, but I do find my lips a bit dry after a full day in the formula.
And this is my absolute favourite, Laura Mercier’s Fresh Raspberry. A perfect pink for all occasions, it wears almost as a neutral colour on me. It’s a little glossier than I might like, but that’s nothing that can’t be fixed by applying over a nude pencil, or dabbing a little powder over.
So, which are your favourite pink lipsticks? Let me know in the comments, I’m always looking for more!
