- Summer Lips & Tips...

Pink lipstick nail polish revlon rimmel sultry eastend snob

I have too many lipsticks & nail polishes.


Said no one ever.


AMIRITE?!

The arrival of Summer brings with it a brighter, bolder colour palette. Despite experimenting, I've noticed I've been returning to the same lip and nail shades. And, if you know me, my choices may seem a little surprising. Yep, I've been reaching for the pinks - it's all a bit feminine and girly, BUT I LOVE IT!

For nails, you may have seen me feature this shade here. It gained a lot of attention, and rightly so. Named 'Splash of Grenadine' (Summer cocktail anyone?), this vibrant bubblegum purple is beautiful in the sunshine. Essie are one of my favourite nail polish brands, as their brushes apply the right amount of product, their shade range is stunning, and the polishes are longer lasting than competing brands.

Next up is the lip combination I've been loving. I've been wanting to expand my collection of pinks recently and my current favourites have to be this pair. I've been applying the Rimmel Exaggerate lip liner in 'Eastend Snob' as a base, but it's also incredible worn alone. It provides a pretty wash of muted pink and is super affordable.

On days where I want a bit more coverage, I've been reaching for the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 'Sultry'. This is such a fitting name as it really is a sultry pink. Despite the 'you either love it or hate it' peppermint scent of these balms, their pigmentation is impressive and they don't cling to dry patches.

Last Summer was all about the oranges and corals for me, but this time round it seems the pinks have taken over!

What do you think of these products? Have you been loving pinks lately?

  14. That nail polish is stunning! Andddd I'm also totally gutted. I picked up the normal Revlon Balm Stain in 'Honey' today, and they didn't have the two matte colours I wanted, so I just ordered them online with Boots. They're running 3 for 2 on some Revlon products so I picked up a Lip Butter too. But now I'm wishing I had picked up this shade! It looks absolutely gorgeous, I love that shade of pink! Makes a great lip colour for evening drinks.

  18. I loved coral last summer too but just haven't been able to pick up my MAC Morange so I definitely think corals aren't as big this year! I love these pinks on you, and how cute is the name splash of grenadine!

  21. Hahaha - you are RIGHT!!! That's the same with me - too many things! I love pink tones in general and as much as I love my coral I still try and find the ones with a pink undertone as I feel it works best for me - loving your picks and how can you not love Essie….it's such a great brand and I love the variety! :)
