My Stuff: Crazy Pink Lipstick Lady

3 Comments

I have been using crazy pink lippies for a long time now and whilst I often go for a nude look, when I do pink lipstick, I go all the way out! Hot Pink, fuchsia, neon pink, call it what you want. Here’s my expanded collection (thanks to my friends who gave me fab birthday pressies!)

(L to R) L’Oreal Color Riche 285 Pink Fever, Clarins Rouge Prodige 102 Pink Paradise, MAC Glaze Big Bow, Dior Addict High Shine 864 Sketch Pink, Estee Lauder Signature Hydra Lustre Lipstick SIG 52 Brilliant Pink, MAC Satin Hollywood Nights, MAC Viva Glam Satin Nicki, MAC Satin Pink Nouveau, MAC Sheen Supreme Insanely It. I tried swatching and I’m not quite sure what to do. Anyway, I’m an NC25.

My sister gave me the MAC Hollywood Nights (from the Heatherette collection) a long time ago and I have been using it sparingly. It’s a gorgeous pink with purple undertones. The one that’s about to be gone is Big Bow from MAC’s Hello Kitty collection. I use it a lot because of the shimmer particles.

The ones that I use most often these days are L’Oreal Color Riche and the Clarins Rouge Prodige though they both leave lipstick prints all over my things (can get quite messy). But I have to say I still really love my Clarins one because Paradise Pink is such an awesome bubble-gum pink!

I think my least favourite is the Dior Addict one. Firstly, the packaging doesn’t stand. Secondly, it’s so light! I understand it’s supposed to be translucent but OMG… I have to coat it several times just to get colour.

Rydwan and Malcolm got me the MAC Insanely It! for my birthday and it’s really very creamy! My new favourite is a toss-up between that and Sian Eng’s gift of Estee Lauder’s Brilliant Pink. In terms of the texture and colour of Brilliant Pink it’s my absolute favourite amongst all but I don’t like the packaging. The gilded gold is too fancy for a common everyday office lady like me! HAHA!

Yesterday, I traded in my DBS credit card points for 2x$20 MAC vouchers to offset the cost of the Viva Glam Nicki and Pink Nouveau. I think I’m going to trade in my 6 empty MAC containers for another 1 later! Free lipsticks are great!

I left Singapore for the US of A in 2013 and now live in Las Vegas with my indie game dev husband and our son Gummi Gumdrop. I am also probably much older than you think I am.

  1. Aaah I love your selection of lipsticks. I love this shade so much but for some reason I don’t own a single one, probably because the ones I spot in our stores are either not too pretty or budget breaking! Loved this post.

  2. Just by looking at the colours on your arm, I was thinking, I like the 4th one — the Dior addict 😀
    And you don’t like it!!! 😀
