Is it just me, or have a lot of YouTubers been rocking a pretty pink lip lately?! I adore the bright pink thing that Ingrid has going on in this favourites video, and even Estee from Essie Button has been getting into some pretty awesome pink lip action over here. This post proves that not only am I easily influenced by others, but that it is wonderfully invigorating to take inspiration from beautiful people and in turn dive into your stash to come up with some buried treasure.A glossy pink lip has been on the menu for me for a while now, and seeing videos with pretty pinks involved has kept the trend strong. I am only just beginning to really appreciate the beauty of the Maybelline Color Whispers, and in particular the shade Petal Rebel* is totally rocking my world. It doesn't sink into lip lines and remains nice and glossy while keeping the pale pink pigment strong, which is a pretty mean feat for a light pink shade am I right?
A high end pink beauty that I've been pairing with my glossy lips is the YSL Crème de Blush in Fuschia Temptation. A lemming spurred on by the ever-inspiring Pink Sith, this appears quite a bit more fluorescent on me than it may on most thanks to my pale colouring. As you can see in the first image though, it is still very wearable and in my opinion, best applied with a nice stippling brush. As you can tell by the surface of my YSL pot, that is how I always apply my Crème de blush!
How do you go about getting girly with your makeup?
Is it just me, or is it quite hard to find a flattering pale pink lip product in a lovely formula?!
