I’ve always loved a bold pink lip the most with a matte finish. I have been so impressed with both the Sleek Matte Me (in the shade Party Pink) and Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet (in the shade Pink Pong) liquid lipsticks ever since they came to stay with me. Yeah I’d say things are getting pretty serious between us. They are so pigmented, so matte and their lasting power is phenomenal.
If you find matte to be a bit too drying and you’d rather opt for a cream finish I’ve got a few picks. Revlon’s Super Lusrous Fuchsia Fusion is a pretty good dupe of both Mac’s Girl About Town and Mac’s Show Orchid that I remember people were raving about a few years back... I’m working on catching up to modern times. If you’d rather go for a less shocking shade and something more peachy and light, MUA’s lipstick in Juicy fits the bill for a frighteningly affordable price. My favourite pick for a cream finish has to be Barry M’s Dolly Pink though. I’d probably pat it down with a tissue to get it a bit more matte myself, but it’s a beaut, especially paired with a matte brown eye.
And, well, if you’re just a picky Pam (COME ON Pam! Get it together) and you don’t like anything with the word lipstick in the name, I’ve got a couple of alternatives for you. The Maybelline Colour Elixir in Hibiscus Haven gives fresh look to the lips and it has a lot of pigmentation for a gloss. The one I use more often though is the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm stain in Lovesick. It’s an oldie, but a goodie. It gives that bright pop of colour, but without ever having to worry about it smudging everywhere.
