147 Peachy Pink

I want to start off this review by saying this lipstick was one of the hardest colours I’ve had to photograph! In some photos it looked very orange, in others very peach or pink or coral, and I think that’s because this is perfect mix of all of them!
I only got this a few days ago after Vivianna mentioned it reminded her of Topshop Head over heels blush (which I have fallen head over heels in love with) so naturally I went on the hunt for it and I luckily got the last one in my boots.
(they aren’t identical but they are definitely in the same colour family)
This definitely stands out in my lipstick collection, and I think it’d stand out in most as it’s quite a unique colour, think of the prettiest peach, mix it with a little bit of pink, some coral and a little bit of orange and you’d end up with something like this – love it!
It’s a matte formula which I think is perfect for such a bright colour as it allows it to be easily wearable for during the day, I know that for me, with a gloss this would be a bit too bright to comfortably wear.

The other bonus of it being matte is it lasts a good 3 hours on me, although the wear time obviously depends on how lipstick wears for you. But matte finishes in general do last much longer as they’re less likely to just slip off!
The only negative to matte lips for me, is they can be a little drying so make sure you apply lots of lip balm before you put this on.

I’ve recently been loving wearing slightly brighter and bolder lip colours, I think it’s because you can get away with anything if the sun’s shining!
Have any of you got any favourite bright shades?

Hope this has been helpful!! x

P.S hopefully you can see how different this colour looks in all these shots, in real life it's a bit of a mixture of all these

Though I'm sure all lipsticks look awesome on you :) *is jealous*

I've been obsessed with peachy makeup this summer. This lipstick might be a little too peach for my medium skin, but on you it look wonderful! Currently, I'm loving Rimmel's Coral Shimmer. It's a sheer coral that's not too glittery. Love.

Cafe Fashionista said...

I am seriously in love with this color. It has such a natural vibe to it; while bringing a bit more peachy/pink to brighten up one's face. Gorg! :)

Anna said...

Looks lovely, don't think I'd be brave enough though :) <3

Taj Acosta said...

This looks super glam! btw-Loving your blog doll! xo -Taj

Radiant Make Up said...

@Jillian I doubt it would be too peach as I have a friend with very tanned skin and it looks even better on her!

@Anna I thought that too but somehow with neautral slightly peach make up i don't feel uncomfortable wearing it :)

Thanks for commenting!! x
