I have accumulated a few new pink lipsticks recently and I really want to share with you the Power of Pink. Similar to the red rouge, where deep red shades of different variations are suitable for individual skin tones, different shades of pink have the power of bringing out another persona in you.

Rouge Dior in Tulip Pink (S$44) – I have tried this before here. This is a very wearable and current coral-pink shade which could easily transit you from day to night.

Dior Addict Extreme in Holiday (S$44) – This is a matte hot pink shade that looks like it could up my fash-cred a wee bit. I actually prefer the texture of Dior Addict over Rouge Dior. Dior Addict is supposed to contain an ingredient which has hydration and plumping effect. I found the lipstick to glide better on the lips and appear more moisturising.

Shiseido Shimmering Rouge in PK415 (S$43) – A lighter, but no less electrifying and shimmery shade of pink. Think Shibuya girls! When I was at Shiseido’s counter, the beauty trainer applied concealer on my pigmented lips before applying the colour. The outcome looked a little bit more saccharine sweet. In the photo above, I applied a few layers directly on my lips and I felt the effect looks great on my skintone.

shu uemura Gloss Unlimited in Blooming Pink (S$39) – This is a very sheer pink gloss which is reminiscent of Clarins Gloss Prodige in Candy. I was honestly a bit disappointed by the lack of colour, as compared to what I had envisioned when I first saw the tube of candy pink gloss.

Which is your favourite shade?

粉红色胭脂原来也另有一番哲学。不同色调的粉红色能够带出不一样的气质。例如,Dior Addict Extreme 的Holiday 色调,非常鲜艳,一抹上,就能够散发时尚达人再带有一点叛逆风格。反观资生堂Shimmering Rouge PK415色调,颜色较浅,走的是较可爱的路线。哪一颜色是您最想跃跃一试的呢?
