Five head-turning pinks to get your lips looked at!

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 4 - 2013

A makeup artist once told me that straight men don’t like bold lips. They can feel intimidated by a statement colour and don’t consider these women as “kissable” as their smoky-eyed/nude-lipped counterparts.

Just as well I don’t give a shit then, isn’t it?

Five head-turning pinks to get your lips looked at!

Here are five of my most retina-searingly, beautiful pink lipsticks and you’ll be delighted (or at least, you should be, I engineered it this way!) to hear that they’re all under £20.  As much as I do love my Tom Ford Pure Pink, you can get some raging pigment for much, much less moneh.

01: Boots Seventeen Lasting Fix Lipstick in Pink Power

This is my latest pink acquisition and I’ve been reliably informed that it’s a dupe for MAC’s legendary Girl About town.  I won’t “review” it because I’m posting a FOTD with it later… suffice to say, for under a fiver… it’s a bit of a bargain bright! (£4.29, boots.com)

02: Wet n’ Wild Mega Last Lipstick in Don’t Blink Pink

An eBay purchase from last year, this staggeringly intense pink is almost neon and definitely leans a little warmer than the rest, making it quite an unusual shade.  Most of these bright pinks can often be mistaken for fuchsia, so it’s nice to see one that’s a little bit different.  You can see it in a FOTD, here. (£2.80 not inc. shipping, ebay.co.uk)

03: BarryM Lip Paint in #145 Punky Pink

This is another apparent Girl About Town dupe (what is it with that shade!) though I think it’s a wee bit more cherry-toned, slightly deeper than the MAC offering.  A hair more expensive than the Seventeen lipstick but still under a fiver, you can’t go wrong! (£4.49, barrym.com)

04: BarryM Lip Paint in #146 Dolly Pink

Now, I have to admit… I don’t wear this one a huge amount, mostly because it’s one of those lipsticks that like to wear you.  Dolly Pink is a candy-fest that just about has enough depth to keep it a little more classy (haters gonna hate) than the Nicki Minaj, Gaga, shitty pinks that look like you’ve ground a piece of chalk into your lips.  This is as blue-pink as I can go without looking like a revolting caricature of myself.  I’ve even binned MAC Snob. (£4.49, barrym.com)

05. Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense #36 Satin Fuchsia

The most expensive of the bunch but a truly pretty fuchsia that lasts and lasts.  This MUFE offering is part of a huge range that of lipsticks that make me wish I lived closer to a stockist for some serious swatching.  It’s a very clean, bright pink that whitens the teeth and makes the eyes sparkle.  Not a bad makeover for less than twenty quid. (£16.95, gurumakeupemporium.com)

 

What do you think of my “do not adjust your set” selection of pink lipsticks?  Am I missing any of your favourites?  Let me know in the comments!

  1. You are hilarious Charlotte!

    I love LOVE bright pinks – much more than any other lip color. And my fiance quite likes me super bold reds and pinks as well not that he really knows the difference, he just says I’m looking nice anytime I’ve got a bold lip on!

    My most recent Pink love has been Sleek Pout Paint in shade Pinkini!

    ‘Don’t Blink Pink’ looks a-ma-zing! I have ‘Pink Power’ and love it 🙂

    Boyfriend is terrified if I ever wear bright lips/ basically any lip product (even lip balm) around him, hence a drawer of barely used lip stuff -_- He should just man up.

  3. Marie says:

    I also love MAC Pink Pigeon and the new Maybelline vivids in pink 🙂 Yay for pink lipstick !!!

  4. Gemma says:

    Oooh all of these are tempting, how close would you say punky pink and pink power are in the flesh? I’ve got a drawer full of hot pinks which are all basically the same but not the holy grail pink I’m after.

  5. Sydney says:

    Is it wrong that I want to buy all of these just so that I can avoid men?

    I love all of these shades, I’ve been wearing a mixture of Revlon’s Lovesick (or s ti Lovestick?!)and Seventeen’s very own version and just adore the colour. Bright pink is perfect for Summer.

    Good choices! I’ve been hunting forever for a pink lipstick/gloss version that is the same color as Benefit’s PosieTint. The tint is just too drying but the color is perfect for my fair skin. Any idea on what color pink lipstick/gloss might be a dupe color-wise?

  11. Don’t Blink Pink is so fabulous, and definitely head turning! It lasts a long time and it’s soooo inexpensive too!

  12. Hahaha. Sadly it’s true – my partner pretty much wipes his mouth and goes pah pah like a 3 year old whenever I have anything apart from balm on my lips. But as you say who gives a *&@@!

    Have just discovered the power pigments of Sleek and never tried 17 lippies before so will check out. Thanks for the recs!

  13. Jules says:

    My husband loves me in rich, retro reds; I don’t think I can pull off a bright pink, though, as I’m currently a redhead!

  14. […] When it comes to lipstick, I only suit two colours. I don’t really mind though, as they’re the best two – bright pink and bright red. I prefer red in the winter, but now it’s summer and I’m all about the pink, so I loved Lipglossiping‘s Five head-turning pinks to get your lips looked at! […]
