In no particular order...

MUA Shade 7
This is a peachy, salmon kind of pink that has a hint of coral. It's a fairly wearable colour, but I find it can be a little light for my skin tone. As with all MUA lipsticks, the texture is creamy and moisturising with a vanilla scent. I don't find it to last that long but hey, it's so cheap that I don't mind.

Rimmel Vintage Pink
This is more purple than pink. I don't wear this shade often, but I still think it's a beautiful colour.  I think this has blue undertones to it. I love the smell, it's like a vanilla-cake smell. It feels great to wear on the lips, but doesn't last as long as the Lasting Finish lipsticks. Not a huge fan of the tacky packaging either. 

Clinique Pink Moon
A super pigmented bright pink. This contains tiny shimmers that look amazing when applied to the lips. It has no scent and glides on like a dream. In terms of formula, this is probably my favourite of the five. While the colour is pink, it has a slight hint of berry-ish tones. 

Revlon Berry Smoothie
I love this colour so much! At first I was a bit intimidated by how bright it is, but it looks gorgeous. It's not as pigmented as the others (probably because it's not a true lipstick) which is great as it allows you to build it up. This one also has no scent, it can feel a little grainy to apply but it looks amazing. 

MUA Shade 3
BAM pigmentation! One swipe is all you need for a bright burst of fuchsia  This colour is stunning, but certainly not one I could wear every day. In fact, I'm yet to build up the courage to wear it somewhere. But even if I never wear it, that's okay because I only spent $1 something on it.

Do you own any of these shades?

  1. I love my fuchia/ hot pink lipsticks and would wear them anywhere (except work lol). I have more trouble finding light pink listicks that flatter me so I think I may take the plunge with a MUA order :)

    1. I have the same trouble, so I've come to the conclusion that light pink in general looks awful on me. Yes, buy all the lipsticks! :D

  2. I love Revlon's Berry Smoothie Lip Butter! On my lips its MLBB colour, I've almost used it up :) I also have Vintage Pink, but realised that I've never used it!

    1. Mine too! I love that it can be built up so it looks super bright.
      Vintage Pink is lovely, but I find it clashes with my outfits/other makeup a lot of the time.

  3. I ordered the MUA lippie in shade 7 from the last promotion, and after seeing your swatch I am now super looking forward to receiving it :)

    I think I need to get my hands on the Revlon lip butter now too!

    1. Shade 7 will look stunning on you! And the Revlon shade would be flattering for most skin tones I think :)
