I wouldn't say I am the biggest fan of Valentine's day, but I sure am one of the biggest lipstick fans in the world. My favourite shades are pinks and nudes so I have a few pinks that I think is great for Valentine's day. I hope you like them!
Instead of swatching it on my arm I thought it would be more helpful seeing what it looks like on my lips. So I have a few lip swatches down below and you can find the names of the lipsticks underneath that.
1. Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in 525 Peachy Scene
Lovely peach toned pink with a slight metallic sheen and semi-opaque finish. It is a great pink and I would imagine it working pretty well with most skin tones. Lasting power is around 3-4 hours. Perfect summery/spring shade! You can pick this lipstick up for R107 at Dischem or Clicks pharmacies.
2.Catrice Ultimate Shine Lipstick in 200 Get The Nudes Paper!
Slightly darker pink. It is not shimmery but it does have a cream finish. So it is very moisturizing, but does not set completely. So if you are a bit rough with your lips it can sometimes go all over the place. It is a beautiful shade though and lasts really well for the price. You can purchase this lipstick for R70 at Dischem.
3. Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers in Celestial
This rich pink sets with a velvet finish. It is completely opaque. Initially it has a very creamy consistency but it sets quickly. As with above mentioned lipsticks as well it does not last through meals but it does leave a slight pink stain to the lips. You can get this lip lacquer at Dischem for R93 they are also available at Clicks.
4. Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 205 Elusive
The most beautiful matte pink that I own. It is completely opaque with application, does not run into the lines and lasts for a good 5 hours. The creaminess may disappear but you are then left with a beautiful stain. This matte balm can be drying so remember to moisturize your lips before application. It has a peppermint scent to it that I do not like but it is not too offensive. This lipstick is available at Clicks and Dischem stores for R120.
5. Wet N Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain in E125 Red-dy or Not
If you are more into reds during Valentine's I would recommend this lip stain. It is a beautiful red with a pink undertone. It lasts really well and leaves the lips stained for a good 6 hours. For R50 at Clicks it is an absolute bargain!
