The Dusky Pink Lip featuring Collection, Rimmel and Shiseido!

Oh dusky pink lip how I love you.  You make me look put together even if I've had to physically roll myself out of bed after tossing and turning all night.  Yes, I am a bit scared of colour on the lipulars, but any dusky shade fills me with confidence and a little bit of sophistication.  A little bit.  This is me we're talking about.

I've three shades to show you that I've been loving lately and they're the perfect transition from bright summery lips as autumn approaches.  I know once October hits, I'll be into my berry shades, but for now, these are what I've been McLovin recently.


For me, a true dusky pink lip is muted, has a cool undertone to it and softens whatever makeup you've paired with it.  It's ladylike, subtle and one you don't need to worry about it being too garish.  I've three to show you depending on your budget, so let's get to it shall we?


I know I'm late to the game with the Collection Cream Puff lip products (€4.49) but as someone with uber dry lips, I try to steer clear of matte lipsticks and glosses.  However, with the arrival of my Cicaplast lip balm, my lips are in great shape so I can now confidently wear matte products without looking like I'm severely dehydrated.  Cotton Candy is a soft, velvety matte lip cream that smells gorgeous and glides on to the lips easily.  Being matte, it will highlight any dry bits, but if you use your Cicaplast, you won't have that problem.  


Ah Rimmel and your Apocalips (€7.95).  This is easily one of the best new products of 2013 and out of my collection of four (I really do want Big Bang next), Celestial is the true dusky pink.  Pigmented, glossy, smells amazing, stays put for ages.  All things you've most likely already heard in the millions of reviews out there.  But all of these things are true and if you haven't tried them yet, you should.


I recently blogged about my new favourite lipstick, Titian from Shiseido (€25.00) and so I won't bore you with the same thing again.  But essentially, it's amazing.  Moisturising, pigmented, glossy and an absolute joy to wear.

So tell moi, are you a fan of the dusky pink lip?  What's your favourite one to wear?  Enable me because Lord knows I need another dusky product in my stash!

  1. Ooh these are lovely! I'm a massive Apocalips fan too but don't have this shade so this will be the next in my stash now. My fave dusky pink shade is the Revlon lip crayon in Honey and with it being a stain it hangs around all day if I forget to reapply lol.
