5 Best Pink Lipsticks 2014

3

I love pink! I always have and I always will. From accessories to clothes, nail polishes to lipsticks, I have a lot of pinks in my collection. At first, I used to buy only nude to light pink lipsticks. But in the past year or so, I have grown to love bright pink shades. Whether warm-toned or cool-toned, from light baby pink to bright neon pink, I want to collect them all if I could!

Best Pink Lipsticks 2014

Anyways, I want to share with you my 5 Best Pink Lipsticks that I’ve bought this year.

NARS MARISA AUDACIOUS LIPSTICK
NARS Audacious Lipsticks Collection
Permanent Edition

Best Pink Lipsticks 2014 NARS Marisa

NARS Marisa lipstick is classified as a warm pink. It is a gorgeous cool-toned pink that is casual enough to be worn to the office. NARS Marisa is very pigmented and is already opaque in just 1 swipe. It has a lovely satin-matte finish and its texture is creamy and smooth. NARS Marisa lipstick is not drying on my lips at all, and even feels a little bit moisturizing.

NARS Marisa lipstick glides easily on the lips without any tugging and applies evenly. It does not settle into lip lines nor does it aggravate the condition of dry, flaky lips.

There is a beautiful satin sheen at first which disappears after about an hour or so. A more matte finish can be achieved with NARS Marisa lipstick by simply blotting it lightly. It lasts around 4 to 5 hours on my lips before it fades. I love that NARS Marisa lipstick doesn’t suck the moisture from my lips.

CHANEL CRAQUANTE ROUGE ALLURE LIPSTICK
Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss Collection
Limited Edition

Best Pink Lipsticks 2014 Chanel Craquante

Chanel Craquante Rouge Allure lipstick is classified as a luminous pink. It is a beautiful cool-toned flamingo pink that is as sheer as the reformulated Chanel Rouge Coco Shines. Semi-opaque coverage can be achieved with 5 swipes or more, but since its color is on the light side, those with very pigmented lips might not like this shade. It has silver micro-shimmers that translates into a beautiful shine and luminosity once worn on the lips.

Chanel Craquante Rouge Allure lipstick applies smoothly and glides easily on the lips. It doesn’t settle into lip lines and there is no tugging at all. When I first reviewed Chanel Craquante Rouge Allure lipstick, it was too drying on my lips. But I found a workaround to this flaw. What I needed to do was make sure that my lips are fully prepped. The night before I want to use Chanel Craquante, I apply Vaseline Lip Therapy on my lips. In the morning, I exfoliate my lips thoroughly to make sure there are no dry flakes or chapping on my lips. Before applying Chanel Craquante, I have to apply a layer of moisturizing lip balm then blot it with a clean tissue paper after about 30 minutes to remove the excess shine. Even though Craquante is not a matte lipstick, I still apply MAC Prep+Prime Lip (which I normally only use underneath matte lipsticks) on top of the lip balm. Then I carefully apply Chanel Craquante whether I wanted a sheer or semi-opaque finish.

I love how Chanel Craquante Rouge Allure lipstick looks on my lips. I also use it to tone down the color of some of my brighter lipsticks, or to add some shine and luminosity to some of my plain lipsticks. So, although it is a bit sheer and drying (when lips are not properly prepped), it is one of my best pink lipsticks for this year. It lasts around 4 to 5 hours on my lips and is definitely worthy of its name, Craquante, which is French for “cute”.

MAC NOUVELLE VOGUE (MATTE) LIPSTICK
MAC The Matte Lip Collection
Limited Edition

Best Pink Lipsticks 2014 MAC Nouvelle Vogue

MAC Nouvelle Vogue Lipstick is classified as a soft blue pink. It is a cool-toned medium pink that is casual enough to be worn during the day. MAC Nouvelle Vogue Lipstick is very pigmented and is already opaque in 1 swipe. It has a beautiful satin-matte finish, and is less drying than my other favorite matte pink lipstick, MAC Please Me. I didn’t include Please Me on this list because that one is timeless. Even though Please Me is drying, I still wear it a lot. I just make sure that my lips are properly prepped, as what I now do with Chanel Craquante.

Back to MAC Nouvelle Vogue Lipstick, it is creamy and applies smoothly on my lips. It doesn’t drag on the lips nor does it settle into lip lines. As expected, there is no feathering or bleeding with this matte lipstick, but it still tends to dry up my lips after a few hours. I’m not sure if I’ve already mentioned this before, but I used to hate the vanilla scent and taste of MAC lipsticks. However, I’ve grown to love it over the years. 😉

MAC Nouvelle Vogue Lipstick lasts around 4 to 5 hours on my lips and leaves a little bit of stain that is also drying. But, however drying it is, its shade is not one to be ignored. I love how it is almost a cool-toned, rosy pink on my lips and also love its matte finish. So, I just have to prep my lips thoroughly before applying MAC Nouvelle Vogue Lipstick to fully enjoy this beautiful shade.

NARS MICHIYO LIPSTICK
NARS Audacious Lipsticks Collection
Permanent Edition

Best Pink Lipsticks 2014 NARS Michiyo

NARS Michiyo lipstick is classified as a shocking pink. It is a bright, medium fuschia pink with a cool undertone. It is my dupe to NARS Schiap which had been a little bit drying on me. NARS Michiyo lipstick, as with all NARS Audacious Lipsticks I’ve tried, is very pigmented and is already opaque in just 1 swipe. It has a creamy and smooth texture and a beautiful satin-matte finish.

NARS Michiyo lipstick glides easily without dragging on the lips when applying and doesn’t settle into lip lines. It was not drying on my lips at all, and was even a little bit hydrating. NARS Michiyo lipstick applies evenly on the lips and there is no feathering with this lipstick, especially if you’re not prone to feathering. It doesn’t aggravate the dryness of the lips and it feels really light when worn.

NARS Michiyo lipstick is very long-lasting and wears for well over 8 hours before it fades into a light stain. It is one of my few hot pink lipsticks that I really love. Although NARS Michiyo lipstick is cool-toned, it doesn’t clash too much with my yellowish skintone. I don’t have to buy a backup for it because it is Permanent, so I can buy a new one after I finish this bullet.

MAC NO FAUX PAS (MATTE) LIPSTICK
MAC Heirloom Mix Collection
Limited Edition

Best Pink Lipsticks 2014 MAC No Faux Pas

MAC No Faux Pas lipstick is classified as a hot pink. Like NARS Michiyo lipstick, it is another bright, medium fuschia pink with a cool undertone. It is very pigmented and full-on opaque coverage can be achieved in just 1 swipe. MAC No Faux Pas lipstick has a beautiful satin-matte finish, but after abount an hour of wear, it becomes more matte.

The texture of MAC No Faux Pas lipstick is a bit creamy and smooth. It applies very easily and glides on the lips without tugging. It doesn’t settle into lip lines, but it would be better if lips are properly exfoliated, moisturized and primed before applying MAC No Faux Pas lipstick. Even though it has a matte finish, it is not drying at all. MAC No Faux Pas lipstick lasts a good 7 to 8 hours on my lips, and leaves a nice stain.

MAC No Faux Pas lipstick feels light on the lips and it would be easy to tone down or brighten its color. For nights of partying, it is a great lipstick to wear. It’s Hot Pink Lips that is sassy and classy. I just regret that I hadn’t been able to buy a backup for MAC No Faux Pas lipstick since it’s a Limited Edition from the MAC Heirloom Mix Collection. I should’ve listened to my intuition, but it’s too late now as it’s already sold out here in Manila. 🙁

Best Pink Lipsticks 2014

All of these are HOLY GRAILiciously awesome but my favorite out of these 5 is MAC No Faux Pas. It’s just pure love! I’m so happy that both NARS Michiyo and NARS Marisa are part of the permanent line. For the other 3 that are Limited Edition lipsticks, I hope that they’ll be repromoted again soon so I can buy more of them, especially MAC No Faux Pas. 😉
