Hi all! Let’s talk lipstick, shall we? I love a good pink lip and I definetly have my favorites for different reasons. Pinks simply cannot be put into the same category, some have purple tones others orange some are matte others are creamy and on and on.
From the left to the right we have: E.L.F. “Classy” & “Flirtatious”, Rimmel London Kate in “102”, Revlon in “Wink for Pink” & BareMinerals Moxie in “Speak Your Mind”. I love them all for different reasons.
Here are the swatches in natural light, as you can see “Classy” has purple tones while “Flirtatious” has orange ones. “102” is a matte cool pink, “Wink for Pink” is the sheerest one in the bunch and has noticeable sparkle, glitter even. “Speak your mind” is the creamiest one and it is true neutral pink, this one can be worn by many complexions. They are all pink, sure, but they are so different! Because I know how hard it is too pick lipstick based off of an arm swatch I took the colors and also swatched them on my lips. I don’t know about you but I love to see the lip color in relevance to the entire face also, so here ya go!
Above: E.L.F “Classy” Retail $1
Above: E.L.F. “Flirtatious” Retail $1
Above: Rimmel London Kate “102” c/o Retail $4-6
Above: Revlon “Wink for Pink” Retail $5-9

I hope this makes it easier to find a new pink lipstick!
All of these colors are swatched over my natural lips, no balm, primer or lipliner underneath. I have a dark natural pigment on my lips so the colors will vary slightly if you have more of less pigment than I.
Tip: For true from the tube color put foundation or concealer over your natural lip color, this will also keep the color put for longer!
