Valentine’s day is a hop, skip and a jump away. It is the perfect time to share two of my favorite things; Pink eyeshadows and Red Lipsticks. I have soo many and it was difficult to narrow it down to five each… Don’t judge me.. I have an addiction!
Favorite Pink Eyeshadows-
Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour- Ballet Pink– A Pale Peachy pink. This smudge-proof, lightweight eye shade is ultrablendable and versatile. It can be applied dry for an even wash of color or wet for a more vibrant effect. Absolutely perfect for everyday wear. $23 at Sephora
Urban Decay Eye Shadow- Sin– A gorgeous Champaign shimmer. Urban Decay’s shadows offer a one-of-a kind velvety texture; rich, dense and decadent color; smooth uniform pigment distribution and blendability; and a long-lasting, crease-free wear. Urban Decay is my Holy Grail eyeshadow, nothing really compares to the texture and long-lasting capabilities. You can purchase this shade separate or in the Naked 1 Palette. $18/$52 at Sephora
Laura Mercier Eye Color- Guava– A Sateen Peachy-Pink. This color is soft and soothing. The sateen formula is a blend of pigment and pearl, it has a creamy, powder texture that creates a lightweight, feel on the skin. I absolutely love the creamy texture and long-lasting powers this one has. I purchased it in the Sold Out Artists palette, but it is also available on its own $23 at Sephora
Urban Decay Eye Shadow- Buzz– A metallic rose shimmer with silver micro glitter. This color is stunning and a great lid shade. Again this is an Urban Decay velvety smooth shadow. With one good swipe you can completely cover your eyelid and the formula is extremely blendable. The only downside to this shade is that is has to be purchased in the Naked 3 set and is not sold on its own. However, you won’t regret purchasing the Naked 3 set, as it is glorious! One of my favorite and most used palettes this season! $52 at Sephora
E.l.f Prism Eyeshadow- Sunset– A vibrant warm pink. This color doesn’t have its own name, but comes in the Sunset palette. Very, very creamy texture. Blendable and pigmented. This color last all day. The formula is luminous and shimmery! It also is a fantastic deal! The whole palette includes 6 colors and sells for $10 at E.l.f.
Favorite Red Lip Shades-
NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick- Miracle- A cherry, coral red. This happens to be my favorite “Everyday” red. It goes with everything and the color is absolutely stunning, Bright, but not too bright. Velvety texture and saturated color. A jaw dropping $4 at NYX
Stila Lip Glaze-Holly– A bright orange-red! One swipe of this saturated gloss will leave your lips ready to face anything! Love the ease of application and the sheer, bright color! I always carry a Stila lip glaze in my purse because it is super easy to apply, and you never know when you will be in a situation where you need to apply lip color without a mirror!!! $22 at Sephora
Kat Von De Foiled Love Lipstick-Adora– A shimmering candy apple red. This is my absolute favorite “Party” red. Not only will it last through the entire party, but it is absolutely stunning and unique. I have never had a red quite like this one! It has flecks of gold shimmer infused for the perfect amount of glamour! I am absolutely dying to try out the other shades in this line. I had received a small sample of this color, but it can be found exclusively at Sephora. $19
Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick- Apricot– A warm red. I love Bite beauty lip products, they deliver super antioxidant resveratrol, which fights free radicals with potent long-term antiaging benefits. This color is particularly gorgeous and sophisticated on the lip. If you are looking for a power red, this is it! Very, very long lasting. $24 at Sephora
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar-Harlot– A neon popsicle red. If you are looking for a lip stain that WILL NOT COME OFF for anything. This is it! You really do need makeup remover to remove this. A little goes a LONG way! Not only is the color an electric, bright red, this stuff is amazing. A bit drying, so top with some lip balm. I love it. If I am planning on going to a really long event where I probably wont see a mirror for hours, this is my go-to stain! It is also 100% vegan and cruelty free, so you can feel good about wearing it! $18 at Sephora
