The Perfect Bridal Pinks!

Hello Loves!

I wanted to make a post to show my opinion on what the perfect pink lipsticks are for a bridal look!
I've used most of these colors for my own bridal clients, and they've worked for everybody so far :)
I created a soft, romantic bridal look on myself to show case the beautiful lipsticks, so here we go!



 

MAC Lipstick in Angel
This is a popular shade because it's a light neutral pink with a frost finish. It's smooth on the lips and is a pretty pink.
 

 MAC Pink Nouveaux is a brighter cooler pink in a satin finish. This is not a neutral color, but for the pink lovers, it's a nice pop of color without looking garish.

MAC Please Me is a matte finish lipstick. It's a warm pink with neutral peachy tones. It's a classy shade and it's not too pink or too peachy. Just right.

MAC ChatterBox is an Amplified formula, which means it stays well on the lips like a matte formula, but isn't as drying as a full on matte formula. This has a bit of a sheen to it, and feels creamy. It's a warm pink and adds some warmth to the face.


Clinique 43 Glazed Berry is such a lovely lipstick. It's a warm pink with a shine to it and has a bit of a duo chrome appearance to it. Depending on skin tones, it can look lighter or darker. It's a classic!


Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Collection in 101. This Lipstick has lasting power and is light neutral pink.In the same value as MAC's angel, however this one is more warm toned.


Rimmel Apocolips Lip Lacquer in 102 Nova is a bolder Pink. It lasts a long time and is a gorgeous color for those ladies who love a nice pink lip!

Rimmel Apocolips Lip Lacquer in 101 Celestial is a muted warm neutral pink. It's less of a pinky shade and it's a more warm neutral than the others, still lovely.

Hope You Enjoy!
And Good Luck <3

The Best Drugstore Lipsticks, featuring Milani Cosmetics

Hey Everyone! Thanks for dropping by :)

I'm here to chat about my Milani Cosmetics lipsticks. They are some of the best drugstore lipsticks I have ever tried! They are long lasting, creamy and smell like watermelon candy! I definitely plan on getting more, but here are the 4 that I own and absolutely adore!





Sweet Nectar- The BEST orange lipstick I have ever tried! It's a true bright, creamy orange. So stunning on my complexion...didn't think I could pull off orange, until I tried this beauty.

Fruit Punch is the first Milani Lipstick I ever bought. It's a bright medium toned pink. This color is gorgeous!

Plumrose is a berry plum. It's a neutral color that would look great on everyone! Perfect for everyday and dark enough to be considered bold for those shy lipstick wearers ;)

I saved my favorite for last. Nude Creme is THE best nude lipstick I have ever tried. I am more of a bright lipstick kind of girl and usually shy away from nudes. But this color is perfection. It's a pinky peach nude and it doesn't make me look like a corpse (which is important, obviously) It's definitely a MUST!

If you live in Montreal, you can get Milani Lipsticks at Loblaws or Maxi & Cie.
They retail for about $7!

Hope You Enjoyed!

Happy Shopping,
