My Top 5 Fave : Pink Lipsticks

Time for my Top Faves!!! As you all know, for those who have been following me have seen my previous posts but to those who are new; here are the links for my other Top Faves : Lipsticks.

     My Top Fave : Red Lipsticks
                           Coral & Orange Lipsticks
                           Recent Fave Lipstick Shades

In this post, I must admit I have to cheat a bit. Instead of the usual My Top 3 Fave, it will be My Top 5 Fave.

I just love pink shades or am I just a sucker for pinks or what!?!?!

I don't like pink shades before because for me wearing pinks usually is a type of a person that leans more on feminine. I am a little boyish to be honest but recently some of the brands that I like introduces pink shades that I begin to like & love as it suits my skin tone. 

One of my Top Fave Pink Lipsticks is from a drugstore brand : Maybelline. I love this brand. Maybelline Colorsensational in Pink Freeze is a light shimmery pink when I applied this on my lips it's more of a neutral pink with high shimmers. It's like applying pink lipgloss which I love, love, love!

NYC lipstick in Fragile Pink. Now, I discovered this from one of my favorite Beauty Guru in youtube "The Makeup Chair" She use this shade when she did a makeup tutorial and boy, the instant I saw this I fell in love. A very subtle light pink with a frosty finish. This shade is suitable for a day makeup to night makeup. This is one of the pink shade that's a perfect match to a smokey look. And I guess this suits for every skin tone. I love wearing wearing this lipstick whenever I try new smokey looks.

NYX Lip smacking Fun colors in Paris is Barbie pink shade. Another of those pinks that is good for daytime wear or night parties. This lipstick shade is also good for a light smokey look too!

MAC Venus is a cool toned subtle pink with a little shimmer. I also considered this as a neutral pink because when applied on my lips it's like MLBB (my lips but better) shade. Great also for daytime wear or night time.

MAC Girl Next Door is a sheer blue pink with a lustre finish that can be buildable to become more opaque. I usually use this whenever I wore a very minimal makeup but to amp up a bit of my look. 

So, what are your favorite pink shades lipsticks? 

Thanks for stopping by!

My Top 3 Favorite : Eye Base

Hello, everyone! It's been a while now since I've posts My Top 3 Favorite and now, continuing on. In case you want to check out my first 3 of My Top 3 Favorite : Face Primer Part 1 , Part 2 and Eye Primer. Like I've said in my previous posts of how oily my lids are that it's hard for me to let the shades of my eye shadows to pop because just for a few hours it just fades. So, aside from using an eye primer I need eye bases too. Of all the bases I've tried, I found quite a few to my liking.

Clockwise from top left - NYX eyeshadow base (a special mention), Milani shadow eyez, Maybelline color tattoo and NYX Jumbo eye pencils.

Milani Shadow Eyez  - consists of different shades from champagne, neutrals to bold and dark shades. Before it only consists of satin and shimmer shades but lately after Milani had introduced more limited edition matte shades but decided to included in their permanent line which I was so happy!

Maybelline Color Tattoo - they have two sets of range - one consists of shimmer shades and I think a year ago they introduced Leather Collection that consists mostly neutral matte shades that their take on the famous MAC paint pots. They also did release some limited editions ones which I wish they would included in their permanent line because a lot of it are more matte shades. Later this week, I'll be posting my treasure trove of color tattoos. 

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil  - this have tons of different shades for every eye looks, too many that you can find shades comparable to high end brands. From white, champagne, brown to bold shades with mixture of matte and shimmer finish.

NYX Eyeshadow Base  -  this is a special mention, it only has 3 shades available (white, skintone which is shown above and pearl) sad to say it's been discontinued. I only have the white and the skintone.

There are also my other favorites eye bases, because of trying other brands which I also come to love. 

Clockwise starting from the top left - Sleek Molten Metal, Mememe Dew pots, Essence stay all day, MAC paint pots and ELF duo eyeshadow cream

I'll be posting swatches and reviews on these in my next coming posts. So, do watch out for them.

Overall, I love them all. Did I mention that a lot of them are cream formulas so definitely they tend to crease if you put too much on your lids and especially to those oily eyelids folks. But with just a little of them, because it's so pigmented that it'll give your eye shadow an oomph! So, a little goes a long way.

Do you have eye base favorites? Love to know them and try them too!

Thank you for dropping by! 'Til next post.
