POTW: Catrice in Pink Me Up!

This week’s Pink product is the Catrice Ultimate Lip Colour in 110 Pink Me Up! The Catrice Ultimate Lip Colour range gives amazing colour with a long lasting formula that is easy to wear on the lips.

This shade is great for when you want a bright, bold pop of colour on your lips. I love wearing this when I go for a simple eye look and this on the lips for a more finished look. I think this kind of colour is great all year round. Will look great both in summer with a bronzed look and in colder months with a smoky eye.

This lipstick does not dry matte on the lips but leaves a slight sheen behind that is not too glossy. It can be worn on its own for a full bold effect or else by applying over some lip balm to sheer it out. For an effortless lip I also like to apply lightly on the lips and pat in for a more sheer wash of colour that last longer.

POTW: Essence Nail Polish in Ultimate Pink

For this week’s Pink of the Week I am sharing with you this cute combination of pink and nude on my nails. 

The pink is the Essence Colour & Go Nail Polish in 108 Ultimate Pink, the nude shade is the Essence Colour & Go Nail Polish in 162 Dare it Nude, and on the nude shade I applied a glitter topcoat which was a limited edition from Essence Glitter Topper from their Hugs & Kisses Collection in 01 More Than Words.

I am loving this combination of pink and nude on my nails. I also used the Sally Hansen’s Double Duty as my base coat and the Insta Dry as my top coat. The Essence polishes are dry really fast and the application is smooth and opaque. The glitter is also gorgeous and I love it on top of most shades.

POTW: NYX Nail Polish in Sandal

This week’s Pink of the Week is the NYX Advanced Salon Formula Nail Polish in 224 Sandal. It is a bright fuchsia colour that I think is perfect to celebrate the beginning of Spring and will look great all year round.

I love the NYX nail polishes and this one did not disappoint. It applied opaque and was not streaky. I applied two coats of it together with the Sally Hansen’s Base and Top Coats. On my ring finger I applied one thin coat of the Essence Glitter Top Coat in It’s Just a Little Crush.

POTW: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Sweet Tart

This week’s Pink of the Week is the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in 090 Sweet Tart. I only have this shade from this range and I find it really moisturizing, creamy and pigmented.

The colour I have is a bright pink that transfers true to its colour on the lips. I find it best to apply some and pat into the lips as it is such a dense consistency. This lip butter is not the best for staying power, that is if you eat something it will most probably disappear from your lips, but I still like it a lot.

POTW: Essence Lipstick in All About Cupcake

Just the name should have you running to get this lipstick! Yes I am one of those annoying people who are totally sucked in by the name of a product *sigh*!
This week’s pink product is my well loved and not so much mentioned Essence Lipstick in 53 All About CupCake. I feel that the Essence Lipsticks are under looked and not given the praises they deserve. I’ve loved this lipstick for a couple years and would definitely repurchase, which will be soon in my case.

All About CupCake is a gorgeous pink shade that glides over the lips, hydrates and leaves a nice sheen. It has no shimmer and I always go for this shade when I’m in a hurry or don’t know which lip colour to put on. The packaging matches the colour of the lipstick, so different colours have different coloured packaging, which I think is brilliant!

I am not a big fan of the shimmery lipsticks from this range but the matte ones are just amazing. They also smell like cotton candy to me, which is a yes in my books!

POTW: NYX Color Lip Balm in Asante


This week’s Pink of the Week, is my favourite coloured lip balm at the moment, the NYX Color Lip Balm in Asante. I find that coloured lip balms are great to carry around in your purse. They are easy to apply and some give really nice colour, plus they hydrate your lips!
I got this NYX Color Lip Balm back in December and I’ve been carrying it around ever since. It has great colour pay-off, smells really sweet and yummy, and is really hydrating. This is just €3.99 and I find it’s better than some more fancy lip balms out there.This product applies sheer with a hint of colour but can be built-up to great coverage after a couple of swipes.

I cannot wait to try more of these color lip balms and to try some more colours in this formula.

POTW: Clinique Chubby Stick in Pudgy Peony

For this week’s edition of Pink of the Week, I want to share with you my favourite product to create a bright pink lip.

The Clinique Chubby Stick in 15 Pudgy Peony is a bright fuchsia colour in a twist up stick that is easy to apply and gives a gorgeous pop of colour. This product is really good for moisturizing your lips too as it contains mango and shea butters.

It goes on the lips with a slight sheen and is not too intense. I usually apply a couple coats on my lips to get some intensity. The only down side to this product is the scent, it doesn’t have a nice fruity or sweet taste to it. It just tastes of lipstick. However this is not too intense and it doesn’t linger so don’t let it bother you too much.

Rimmel, Revlon, Bourjois and many brands do these kinds of products and I think they’re really easy to use and great to carry around for on-the-go applications.
