4 Pink-Mauve Everyday Wear lipsticks-From High End To Budget Brands!!

I love wearing bold shades of corals,reds,pinks but we do need subtle shades for everyday wear.I have a few shades with me that can be used for subtle looks as well as for intense looks as these lip colors looks great when complemented with smoky looks.

Below I have listed 4 such shades of Pinks-Mauves that fit in different price range.

???????????????????????????????

1) Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick Rose XOXO(rs.990 for 3 gms):Rose xoxo is a beautiful pearly mauve pink with silver shimmer in it.It is sheer but buildable.

The lipstick is very hydrating. The formula provides glossy finish to lips and gel-like feel, is lightweight and doesn’t settle in the lip lines.The finish is semi-sheer.The shade is sheer but buildable to medium coverage with 2-3 swipes.However,it cannot provide full coverage as the shade is light.It stays for about 3-4 hours on my lips.

2)Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Lipstick-Sweet Pink(Rs.1720 for 3.5gms):Sweet Pink is really sweet indeed.It is a nude-brown pink shade.I really like this shade for it being subtle and not washing away from skin color at the same time.I love the classy packaging as well.

???????????????????????????????

The lipstick has a very soft and creamy formula providing semi-glossy finish that gives a healthy appearance to lips. It is very hydrating and moisturising.It feels lightweight and comfortable on lips.The shade is light and provides sheer to light amount of shade to lips.It is opaque in its own but being a lighter shade,it wont be able to cover lip pigmentation.Th is shade will mostly suit fair to wheatish complexion.Staying power is 4-5.5 hours.

3)Maybelline Watershine Pure Lipcolor B24(rs.230):B24 is a very pretty light baby pink with a tiniest hint of peach.It is more of a pink and looks really subtle on lips.My lips do feel watery when I apply this :p

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

The lipstick has more of a balmy formula.It is very smooth on texture and glides on easily.The formula is hydrating very moisturising.It is great for those with chapped lips.The shade being pink and having a balmy texture is quite sheer but buildable to medium pigmentation.It is a great shade for everyday wear and subtle looks.It stays for about 2 hours maximum which is quite low but the lips stay hydrated.

???????????????????????????????

4)Oriflame Wonder Colour Lipstick-Pink Nude(rs.349 for 4gm): Pink Nude is the most gorgeous shade of all.I simply adore this shade.It is a mauvy nude shade that will work on all skin tones.

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

The texture is amazing.It is balmy and very comfortable on lips.A great shade for everyday wear.It stays for about 3 hours providing light to medium coverage.Full review will be up soon!!

Ultraflesh matte lipstick- Tender review & swatches

Tender is again part of the 6 piece set.I am hooked to this shade but it is a very tricky as it might not suit everybody.Check review & swathes to decide:

ABOUT: Ultra flesh has two sets fro lipsticks-one is perfect pinks and the other is perfect reds.

I have one shade from the pink set and love it like anything.

???????????????????????????????

Each box contained 6 lipsticks – there are 3 shades and each shade has a matte version as well as a sheer one.The six colors span the pink spectrum.

  • Ethereal (matte golden pink)
  • Tender (matte baby pink)
  • Fragile (matte hot pink)
  • Ethereal (sheer golden pink)
  • Tender (sheer baby pink)
  • Fragile (sheer hot pink)

I have the Tender shade with matte finish just like the earlier shade-fragile!!

???????????????????????????????

PRICE:The whole set is available for 30$ online.

Weight for each lipstick is 1.2gm which is very less.

SHADE: Tender is a yellow based mauve pink.It is such a shade that will suit fair to medium skin tones more than dusky skin.It will simply wash out dusky skin tones.On my NC 35,it is almost bordering .Sometimes,wash out certain looks!!The description of this shade is given as true baby pink but I dont consider this as an absolute baby pink shade.

MY VIEWS:The texture the lipstick is matte but not over drying but you need a lip balm underneath otherwise it will settle in the lip lines.It stays for about 4-5 hours and leaves a slight stain on lips.It glides on easily on lips without any tugging or pulling.

???????????????????????????????

It does settle in the lip lines and accentuate flaky lips so proper exfoliation is a must.

PROS:

  • the texture is smooth.
  • matte but not drying.
  • sturdy packaging.
  • I love the small black matte packaging.
  • decent staying power.
  • very reasonable.

???????????????????????????????

CONS:

  • the shade will suit limited skin tones.
  • has to be purchased online.
  • little quantity.
  • it would have been better to include different shades rather than having hues of pinks and mauves.
  • the lipstick can settle in the lip lines.

RATING: 3/5

RECOMMENDATION: This is available in a 6 piece set having different shades and finishes of pink.If you are a pink lover then i surely recommend you to buy it otherwise having 6 pink shades is too much.I am loving Tender these shades but it will surely wash out certain skin tones.But a whole set would not hurt as you can mix shades and get the desired one.
