Favourite drugstore pink lipsticks

 Hello Lovelies,

First of all, I'm a lipstick freak. I have an absolute loads of them from different brands. A lot of them are MAC, but I have some drugstore lovelies that I enjoy wearing just as much as MAC.

Lately I found myself gravitating more towards pink lipsticks and I found a few favourites from drugstore brands and decided to share with you guys.

I seem to enjoy warm, light to medium pinks and these are just gorgeous colours. I'm wearing these all year round.

This was my first pink lipstick I've fallen in love with which lead to getting more.. )) This is a gorgeous watermelon pink shade that isn't to bright. I love the creamy texture of this lipstick, which reminds of MAC Amplified formula, the only difference is NYX doesn't last as long as MAC. The price is excellent for pigmentation and formula of the lipstick. I would recommend this one if you are looking for a nice warm pink lipstick with a creamy formula that would brighten up your warm complexion.

L'oreal Freshly Candy
This is the newest addition to my pink family. I couldn't stop staring at this lipstick in the store.. It is a such a gorgeous colour.. In the end I decided to buy it hoping it would be similar to NYX but would last longer. Again the formula is similar to NYX but I'm afraid it doesn't last as long as I expected. The shade is pretty similar, except Freshly Candy is a bit brighter and slightly cooler, but only very slightly I would say. To be honest, the quality is pretty similar to NYX but cost is about twice as much.. 

17 Beehive
This one is my favourite drugstore lipstick at the minute. It's they way it looks on the lips just so gorgeous. From the picture of the swatch and a lipstick you can see it's not very pigmented, but it doesn't look neither on the lips. On the lips it comes very close to Hue from MAC but still different. The end colour on your lips will depend on your lip pigmentation as this lipstick is very sheer so I can only speak from how it looks on me. On me this lipstick is slightly darker and pinkier version of Hue from MAC with a different glossier finish that reminds me of Lustre formula from MAC. Basically, on my lips this comes out as warm soft nude pink shade that is extremely wearable for every day. This would also look great with smoky eye and will note wash you out. I find 17 lipsticks aren't pigmented in general and this is the only one I like at the minute. I have some other shades but they were disappointing. I highly recommend this one. Definitely go and check this one one, you never know :) I wasn't sure about this one at first, but when I tried it on my lips.. I just fell in love :)

Thanks for reading,
