Side of Beauty: Pink Lipstick
Summer is here in full force and my sights have turned to soft pinks and pretty pastels. While I’m a huge fan of red lipsticks, when the weather gets warm and the days stretch well into the night, it’s pink all the way! Somehow when the sky is free of clouds and the air is thick, it doesn’t seem right to fight that big ball of light in the sky with a vibrant colour. So, I was thrilled to pick up Chanel’s Rouge Coco in Liaison.
Just like the name indicates, this colour is the perfect conversation between hydration and colour. The finish is a lovely velvety sheen with a hint of transparency.
This is the perfect soft pink for year round wear. Since it’s like ‘my lips only better’, it’s perfect for any office setting or daytime use. For night I can do a dramatic eye and just add a little lipgloss to the lipstick and it will be perfect.
I find that my lipsticks cycle throughout the year. Brighter pinks and lighter reds for spring, then paler softer pinks for summer. Come fall, I’m craving something richer and usually succumb to a deeper colour such as purple. Then as the holiday season slowly starts to wind up, it’s red all the way and this takes me into the following year.
Is it the same for everyone? What are your favourite lip colours for summer?
Loving all these pink beauties!
