If you told me six months ago that I'd do a post all about our rose shaded sticks and fuchsia flushes, I'd have laughed in your face and sworn that a pink blush and lip would be the last thing to enter my collection. Lately my inner Barbie has been released and I've been dipping my toes into the pink lagoon...

The newest and fast favourite of mine is the Clarins Illuminating Cheek Colour in Miami Pink which gives a subtle, skin like blush to the cheeks. It looks incredibly natural and blends so perfectly. NARS Orgasm, as infamous as it is, is one that doesn't get applied nearly as often as it should. Perfect for summer as it reduces the need to use a highlighter but still gives a sunkissed glow thanks to the golden infused shimmer. A very, very pink shade that slightly gives be the heebejeebies is Body Shop's All In One Blusher in Guava*. You need not worry though, as pink as it looks, a bit of blending ensures a sheer, incredibly natural wash of colour to your cheeks. It's shimmer free, so those of you who prefer a matte look, this one is for you. It holds skincare benefits as it includes Vitamin E and Marula Oil however I'm yet to see the effects - nevertheless, this has been a staple these past few weeks. Love love love.

Pink lips is probably my biggest fear, it genuinely scares me! I find the Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Roomiest Rose to be SO stunning though, faultless to apply in it's crayon form and after about 3 hours of wear it fades beautifully to a natural lip colour - go to. The Revlon Lip Butters are perfect for trying out new shades, and my favourite pinky, shimmery shade from the lot is Berry Smoothie. Sometimes I find it difficult to wear, but when it suits, it suits.

Are you a pink lover, or a bit scared like me? Let me know what your favourite rose shades are!

  1. The colour of that Chubby Stick is gorgeous.
    I'm definitely a bit of a pink wimp like you. I do like it but I feel much more comfortable going for a peach or coral colour rather than just pink. You have picked some lovely shades though! And there is one pink that I'm hoping to wear a lot this summer- Sleek's Pixie Pink, it's so bright but hey, might as well throw yourself in at the deep end hey?
    Hope you're well?

    1. I know, right?!
      Yeah, I'm definitely a coral lover more than pink, but I'm being converted! You sure do, lovely :)

    1. Good! We should embrace the pink ;)xx

  4. I was the same, no interest in pink whatsoever, and now I'm obsessed! Every one of these products in a perfect pink shade as well, and the Clarins blush is so so pretty! Wah, I want it!
