My Hot Pink Lipstick Collection

Mac Lipstick (Matte) – Candy Yum Yum | NARS Satin Lip Pencil – Yu | NARS Pure Matte Lipstick – Carthage | Illamasqua Lipstick (Matte) – Eurydice
NYX Matte Lipstick – Sweet Pink | Sleek True Colour Lipsick (Sheen) – Fuschia | Sleek True Colour Lipstick (Sheen) – Candy Cane | MAC Lipstick (Amplified) – Girl About Town
For the past two months I have been on the hunt the perfect hot pink matte lipstick which has led me on a very dangerous lipstick buying spree. The first picture are all lipsticks I have bought recently. Candy Yum Yum, Carthage and Eurydice all matte lipsticks which all look very different when worn on my lips. Candy Yum Yum is very bright but works well when I wear it with a slightly darker hot pink lip liner underneath it. The NARS Yu pencil on the other hand has a sheen to it and is part of the new NARS Satin Lip pencil range which I absolutely love. I only bought it on Friday along with the NARS Carthage lip pencil and I can already tell they will both be on regular rotation this summer.
The second picture are all lipsticks I have had in my lipstick collection but have neglected over the years. Apart from Sweet Pink by NYX they all have a sheen to them and are all wearable on my skintone. Red lipstick has always been my staple lip colour as its very classic but I think hot pink is now will now be rivalling my red lipstick.

  6. hi just discovered your blog and its great!
    just wondered about the nars lipsticks, are they quite moisturizing as I haven't tried as yet because I find sleek quite drying?

    lovely shades btw

      Thanks Stephanie. It depends on what type of finish you are looking for. Nars matte lipsticks are actually not drying for the lips as some matte lipsticks can be and the Satin finish lip pencil has a sheen to it and is not drying either.

  7. I am in loooooove with your hot pink collection. My fave is the illamsqua one, I have this too. It's gorgeous! A bit drying though.

    I need to venture into the world of NARS Lipsticks!
