Pink Holiday Luxury Cream Lipstick in Marry Me $35.95

Pink Holiday Luxury Cream Lipstick in Marry Me
I have another lipstick in this formula and I love it so of course this was an easy pick for me. The Pink Holiday lipsticks are beautiful and creamy with opaque coverage and decent lasting power considering the moisturising formula. Marry Me is a bright neon pink that isn't for the faint of heart but beautiful nonetheless. If you are looking for a pah-pow pink, this one might be for you.

The Balm Instain Long Wearing Staining Powder Blush in Argyle $27.95

 The Balm Instain Long Wearing Staining Powder Blush in Argyle
I apply blush every single day, even if I skip other parts of my makeup routine, and I want it to last all day. I always find I look quite washed out and tired at the end of the day if my blush has faded so I was really interested in the idea of a staining blush. This admittedly isn't the easiest blush to apply and blend because it is so pigmented but I was absolutely fine with a fluffier, less dense brush. It lasted through the day even in this ridiculous heat so I would definitely agree that it is a long wearing blush that only faded a little.

Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector $44.20
Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector
I've tried all the popular under-eye correctors: Benefit Erase Paste ($47), Bobbi Brown Corrector ($42) and now this one. It isn't as pigmented as the other two, and I think the Bobbi Brown is still the best in that department, but the Becca corrector wins I think if you have very dry skin. It is a bit of a waxy formula so I was worried that it would crease but I did immediately feel the hydration and notice that my eye area looked quite luminous. Thankfully it didn't crease and my eye area didn't look as dry as it usually does and the corrector was the only thing I changed. I think someone who really needs the extra pigment or has oily skin might prefer the Bobbi Brown one, but if you have dry skin you may want to consider Becca. As for the shade, it is a lighter and pinker than some but that suits me perfectly and it would probably suit most light-medium skin tones because it is supposed to be used beneath your foundation and concealer.

Nails Inc Perfect Pink Nail Polish in Rose Street $25
Nails Inc Perfect Pink Nail Polish in Rose Street
I'm a girly girl so pink polish is always going to a regular occurrence on my nails. This beautiful polish from Nails Inc is such great quality. I was a little worried with the first coat that it might be a little streaky but it was perfect with a second coat. The finish was so smooth with no bubbles which is always a win in my book - in this heat most polishes bubble. The shade is a pretty intense pink but I love it.

OPI Nail Lacquer in Put In Neutral $17.96

To prove that pink does not have to equal Barbie, this gorgeous neutral pink polish is a great option for romantic Valentine's Day nails. This is such a pretty neutral nail polish and it applies beautifully. I used two coats below to get this beautiful finish paired with an OPI This Silver's Mine ($17.96) accent nail.

    1. I was really pleasantly surprised by it. I wasn't expecting to like it as much as the Bobbi Brown one. Thanks for reading :)
