The Pinks of Summer


I may not be into pink clothing/accessories, but this summer I am finding myself reaching more and more for pink cosmetics... whether it be brights or pastels, a touch of pink (like one of my favourite light day scents) is welcomed on the nails, lips and cheeks this year.


Here are some of my favourites as of late:


For nails (especially on the toes), it's been a non-stop pink bonanza - from left to right - Essie's Fiji, OPI Mod About You, Essie Fiesta. Fiesta applies like a dream. Mod About You can get a bit thick and clumpy, Fiji is a streaky mess... but ultimately the results are worth it!


Make-up wise, I've been incorporating pinks mostly on the lips - Rimmel's East End Snop lipliner has been on heavy rotation, topped with either Eyeko Primrose Hill lipgloss or Clarins Lip Perfector 01. Dior Addict lipstick in #465 Singuliere is also great.

MAC Well Dressed is the only true pink blush I own, and I love wearing it in the summer.

Here are some swatches, in the same order from left to right as above:


I think I need another pink blush this summer. I owned MAC Dollymix before and didn't like it - so not that. Any recommendations?

Hope your week started off great :)
