THINK PINK | WHO DOESN'T LOVE A BIT OF PINK?

My obsession with the colour pink began in my youth when I was addicted to watching the Power Rangers and always wanted to be the Pink Ranger! Don't deny it, you wanted to be the Pink Ranger too. Obviously, as I've grown my love of pink has subdued (only ever so slightly) and has been restricted to flowers and beauty products vs. bed coverings, jumpers and curtains. 

I love wearing pink, because it reminds me so much of spring and makes me look awake, even on the days when I need an IV drip of coffee. I love bright colours, particularly during the winter, because they bring me such joy and I can pretend I'm living in the Northern Hemisphere where the weather much nicer at the moment. 



So, here we go kiddos, these are my favourite pretty in pink products:

YSL Rouge Volupte (No 9) - OMG! I die for this product. I can't tell you how much I love this lipstick. It's one of those lipsticks that feels so fantastic on the lips, you sometimes forget that you're wearing it. It doesn't dry out the lips, doesn't fade funny or give you that build up in the corners of the lips (you know what I mean, that gross gross build up). It's a heavenly beauty product and worth every cent. Buy it now hah!

NYX Butter Gloss (Eclair) - Amazing, amazing, amazing. I honestly don't know how many times I can rave about how much I love this product. It's amazing, and feels like delightful on the lips. This is great just for a little bit of colour on the days when you don't want to wear much make up.

Bourjois Paris Blush(Rose O'Dor) - The most perfect golden rose colour. It's a pink shade, but you can see the wonderful gold specs throughout it. With this blush, you don't need a highlighter, it makes your skin glow. Plus, maybe because I feel like a granny most days, but I love the smell. I know a lot of people don't like the smell of Bourjois products, but it reminds me of a perfume my mum would wear which gives me feel warm and fuzzy!

Mac Lipstick (Pink Plaid) - I love this colour! It's a matte formula and it stays on the lips forever. It's the perfect dusty pink for every day wear. I wear this layered with Eclair. As always though, I have to make sure my lips are exfoliated before I can put on a matte lipstick to avoid dryness throughout the day.

Real Techniques Stippling Brush - This is a new favourite. Honestly, I think this outweighs my love for the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. The last week I've been using it with Nars Sheer glow and it honestly gives me the most beautiful airbrushed looked and makes my foundation last longer on my skin. WIN!

OPI (If you Moust, You Moust) - I think it's cute that this is from the Minnie Mouse collection, but unfortunately moust makes me think of moist, which is one of the most unattractive words in the english language hah. Random thought, I know! Overall this colour is the bomb, it's my go to colour when I want pink girly nails and as an added plus OPI nail polishes are wonderfully long lasting.

Maybelline Colour Tattoo (Inked in Pink) - Love this colour. It's the perfect rosey pink and perfect for a primer for the Naked 3 palette. The colour tattoos on their own have the most amazing last power and underneath eyeshadow they are like superglue! Absolute love for this product.


Let me know what some of your favourite pink products are.
