We are getting closer to Valentines Day and nothing says date night more than a great lipstick. For a romantic feel there is no room for nudes (well not of the lipstick variety anyway!) so the big question is - Red or Pink?
"If there was no more pink lipstick in the world, I'd be useless." —Nicki Minaj
PINKS I ADORE:
Mac Please Me
Charlotte Tilbury Liv It Up
ICONIC PINKS Include:
Bobbi Brown Sandwash Pink - Worn by HRH Kate Middleton on her wedding day.
Revlon Pink In The Afternoon - worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s
“Beauty to me is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick”
– Gwyneth Paltrow
REDS I LOVE:
Mac Ruby Woo - Also a favourite of the gorgeous Emirates air hostesses
Lisa Eldridge Velvet Ribbon,
Charlotte Tilbury So Marilyn
Mac Feel So Grand
When you think red lips you just can’t help but think of Marilyn Monroe. Unfortunately the lipstick she used to use Guerlain's Rouge Diabolique lipstick is no longer sold.
Panic not as Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lip Colour's "Red Insolence" shade is almost exactly the same colour 💄💄💄
I hope this has been useful - let me know your iconic shades, I love to know everyone’s favourite pinks and reds and love any excuse to try a new lipstick,
