Ever since Lady Gaga and Rhianna came stepped out of the red carpet wearing the hot pink lipstick, it has been illustrious ever since. I have had a number of women asking me where to buy hot pink lipsticks that would suit them best and I would suggest big international brands such as MAC, YSL, SHU UEMURA or MAKEUP FOREVER. These women would tell me that they were either too expensive for such a seasonal color, or it's always out of stock.
So today, I went out on a quest to check Watson's for what they might have in store. And VOILA! The local brands carried nice lipsticks in wide shades of pink. I bought 2 shades that I found very nice on me:
The first one I would like to show you is EVER BILENA's Matte Lipstick in "Off Beat Pink". The first thing I love about this lipstick is that it doesn't have any cheap smell or that strong perfumed smell. It has a subtle smell of lime which I like.
It's matte effect is perfect as a base because of it's subtle pink shade. I love that it's so feminine and delicate. It still gives that bright pink effect but it's softer. With a VERY affordable price tag of PhP 125.00 it's really a great alternative for MAC's matte lipstick in "Please Me".
The next amazing find is NICHIDO's Juicy Lips in "Pink Champagne". It's shade is on the fuscia side which is perfect for YSL's Pure Lipstick #49. I love that I can use it during the day without it looking to bright! It actually is perfect for summer!
This is the perfect alternative for the red lipstick. For those of you who are still afraid of the red lipstick, this may be for you. Nichido's Juicy Lips glides on like a balm, and it smells like cake! It has soft shimmer but it's not frosted. You can skip the sticky gloss when you put this on.
It's shade is also more on the coral side which is best for women with warm skin tones. It'll suit cool skin toned women as well! With a price tag of just PhP 88.00, this Juicy Lips lipstick takes the cake!
