Pastel coloured lipstick can go one of two ways: They are either way so light that you look a little bit like a corpse or you look extra tanned and bronzed like a goddess. Since I’ve recently discovered a new fave pastel pink, I thought I would share a few that I love that make me feel pretty awesome. Added bonus, they are cruelty-free!
Essense Lipstick in Get The Look which is a rather sheer but very cool toned pastel pink. This looks best over a darker lip liner as a highlighted pop of colour.
Cargo Cosmetics lipgloss in Anguilla which is the truest baby pastel pink of the group but it is a seriously beautiful colour for spring/summer.
Marcelle Rouge Xpression lipstick in French Rose** is one I talked about pretty recently. This is a slightly frosty blue toned pink that again looks good for a little pop of colour with a slightly more neutral lip liner.
Essence Liquid Lipstick in Colour Party is one of my newest favourites. This is a colour you can wear on its own that is still very light and bright. It isn’t matte – in fact none of these are – so you also get a lovely glossy look for Summer.
NYX Butter Gloss in Apple Strudel is a bit more peachy and sheer, but again gives you a beautiful pinky gloss for this season.
Essense Lipstick in Wear Berries! is more of a pastel purple shade. Since it is quite sheer but dark, it’s a little more subtle then the others but still lovely.
This one is a bit of a stretch but I wanted to include it in here as another option. Too Faced Melted Fig is a very unique kind of colour. Though it is a deep purple colour, it is a similar concept as Essense Wear Berries. It is a nice wash of colour that mixes very well with any of the lighter shades I mentioned earlier.
Through there are no mattes to be found here, there are a few different finishes and types of lip products giving you a pretty good selection to choose from. Onto the lip swatches, but this time, by type.
Til next time, ttfn x
