Pink Valentines Makeup Picks



All of a sudden I've become obsessed with pretty much anything pink, and with Valentines coming up I thought this would be a fitting time to share my favourite pink products. 

Although it's only pink packaging, I wanted to give the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara £7.99 a mention. I went back to using this at the beginning of January and now I'm reaching for it pretty much everyday. It manages to add length and volume to my lashes without being clumpy, so my lashes don't look too fake or dramatic which is the look I want to go for this Valentines and for date nights in general. I highly recommend it if you haven't given into all the hype with this already.

MAC All That Glitters Eyeshadow £13 was my first MAC eyeshadow purchase, and it's still a shade I reach for when I just want an easy to wear wash of colour. It's pigmented, soft and really compliments my blue eyes without being over the top. It's just perfect for when I want to wear just a little more than mascara and not look too done up.

Although I'm currently having a love affair with Bio Sculpture nails (there will be a post coming on this soon), The Barry M Gelly High Shine Nail Paint in Pink Lemonade £3.99 is my holy grail nail polish. Whenever I wear this shade I instantly feel more put together, and it just goes so well with everything. I also love the formulation of Barry M Gelly polishes, they last much longer on the nails than other polishes I've tried and only need two coats for an opaque finish.

I'm not a massive fan of a bold pink lip, so the Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Descanso £20 is about as pink as I'll go. Annoyingly I didn't realise before writing this that it's actually limited edition, although I think it will be released again in another Nars holiday collection. The formulation of the Satin lip pencils in general is fab, they're creamy, pigmented and really comfortable to wear. Descanso is the perfect pink/ coral shade and it ties in nicely with All That Glitters eyeshadow. I couldn't think of anything worse than a bold matte lipstick around Valentines, so I'm definitely opting for this...

Do you have any favourite pink makeup picks?

    1. I love the look of Essie polishes but I just don't get on with the formula annoyingly, the glitter polishes look beautiful! x

  3. The MAC eyeshadow pairs beautifully with the NARS pencil! I am not so into bold pinks lately myself, I think a subdued pink is much more romantic.

  13. These are all such pretty pink products! Especially interested in the MAC shadow and the lip pencil. I've also noticed that I've been leaning towards pink tones lately and I actually wonder if in my case it's because of Valentine's Day!

  17. I can agree with you that I gravitate towards pinker shades around Valentine's day, even if I am not a pink girl myself. Even that lippie is a little too coral for me, haha! Lash Sensational is still a favourite of mine too, although I find it dries up a little quick. x

  29. I do love the pink products any time of year but I give extra love for them on Valentines. I've always wanted to try all that glitters myself and maybe should plus I just bought that mascara and hope it lives up to everyone raving about it.
