Creamy pink lipsticks Review, Swatches
This is possibly my favourite category of pink lipsticks, I love to pair creamy pink lips with dark smokey eyes for a pretty contrast but they work easily well with subdued eyes for day time. Some of my alltime favourite lipsticks will feature in this post!
The creamy pink players (L-R in pics below):
- Lime Crime lipstick in Pink Planet
- Maybelline Colour Sensational lipstick in Pink Please
- Mac Frost lipstick in Angel
- Mac Cremsheen lipstick in Creme Cup
- YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in #01 Nude Beige
- Clarins Rouge Prodige in #101 Tender Rose
Lime Crime Great Pink Planet – Let’s get this one out of the way first. I don’t like Great Pink Planet – it’s very unflattering on me and while it’s creamy, the slightly neon finish is just way too stark against my skintone. Unfortunately it just makes my skin look really chalky.
Maybelline Colour Sensational lipstick in Pink Please – hello gorgeous! This is a LOVELY creamy pink that’s ever so slightly warm in tone. It’s very easy to wear, looks amazing with just about any shade and smells delicious! I adore the Colour Sensational lippies and Pink Please is definitely in my top 5 shades from the 48 in this range.
Mac Frost Lipstick in Angel – Somewhat of a cult; product Angel is always in the top listed shades when a pink lipstick is request on many a makeup forum. Surprisingly this lipstick is not frosty at all, despite it being listed as a ‘frost’ finish – there’s little shimmery or shine to this shade and it lacks the drying quality that most of Mac’s frost lipsticks have. The shade itself is a light, cool-toned pink which is great for pale skintones. Angel has the perfect amount of ‘coolness’ to it for me and it’s doesn’t veer into lavender or blue-toned territory.
Mac Cremesheen lipstick in Creme Cup – this is another very popular Mac shade! Creme Cup was very difficult to get a hold of when I first decided that I wanted to buy it, it was constantly sold out! In some ways it’s like a ‘neutral’ toned version of Angel, it has the same light pink shade and slight, creamy shine to it. Again, it’s very flattering and easy to wear – perhaps an option for those who find Angel a little icy.
YSL Rouge Volupte in #01 Nude Beige – not beige at all!! This is a pale baby pink shade in the famous creamy Rouge Volupte formula. Whilst extremely luxurious this formula can be a little problematic at times, the heaviness of the texture causes it to slide around on the lips and the shade can look stark at times. However, if you’re looking for a high-quality, ultra opaque nude pink shade then this is it!
Clarins Rouge Prodige #101 Tender Rose – a gorgeous baby pink shade with a creamy texture and full coverage pigment. It’s very flattering on my skin tone as it lacks the lilac undertone of some other pale pink shades (like Mac Snob or Viva Glam Gaga) which I find to clash with my skin-tone. The Rouge Prodige are high-class lipsticks, they’re creamy and hydrating. They apply like a dream and wear well on the lips, they do feel a little on the thick side but I think that’s just due to their incredibly creamy nature.
Please note the Clarins lipstick and Lime Crime lipstick were sent for review, all others were purchased by me.
