I seem to have developed a bit of a new obsession. Now you may know I have many of these, many many beauty related ones. But I thought it was time to break a habit of a lifetime and embrace a new make-up trend. Now for me this is being brave as I'm one of those that does tend to do the same make-up virtually everyday. Just with a bit of glitter added for a more glamourous occasion. (Or when I'm feeling the sparkle of course too!) But anyway I guess I'm stuck in what is known as a beauty rut. I rely on my eyes more than anything else and they're what I tend to emphasize, only ever slicking on a pale pink lip-gloss. Although I am partial to the beige/golden lip too! But never ever venture beyond that! I think it's because it suits me and my fondness for looking ultra golden and tanned, all the time! So to embrace something different would be quite controversial to my normal look. I don't even know what made me try it, I think it was just one of those gut decisions and to be honest I don't think I expected it to be as bright and vibrant as it was but anyway the new trend I've now got a bit of an addiction to is... Bright Pink Lips!
So as I said, normally I would have shied away from the overly barbie pink tones and when sporting a pink lip always used to go for the very pale pink look. But as I mention I really don't know what made me try it but I just thought I'd give it a go and found that I really liked it! It seemed to compliment the rest of my make-up look surprisingly well which I never thought it would. I think it might be because the combination of tanned skin, dark pink blush and my dramatic eyes allow for the bright pink barbie lipstick look work! It's certainly encouraged me to be a bit more bolder with my make-up and go out like it more often! In fact just yesterday when going out for a meal with some friends I used a bright pink lip courtesy of the L'Oreal Paris Glam Shine Stain Splash in No.103, which lasted all night I might add, even after eating and drinking! Another one that I'm quite liking right now is the Maybelline Superstay 14 Hour Lipsticks, particularly the Infinitely Fuchsia. Now this is something I really never thought I'd love as one it's reasonably bright and two it's also a lipstick and I'm more of a lip-gloss girl! But this gives a lovely colour and a bit of a shine to it too, and again it's really long lasting which for me is a big part of a colour lip product. Plus it doesn't feel too sticky or wet which I can sometimes find a bit off-putting.
However my absolute favourite lip product at the moment is the new Apocalips by Rimmel, especially Luna! I'll be writing a full review on this soon! But all I can say for now is it's gorgeous and just gives such a lovely, glossy colour that is just perfect for anytime - well in my opinion anyway! I've been wearing everyday while at work and just love love love it! If you haven't seen the new Apocalips range I couldn't recommend them more!
I've posted a picture of me with my pink lip look just to the side :)
What do you think ladies? Will you be giving a bold pink lip a go?
