BRIGHT Pink lipstick is in ALLLLL year round depending on the tone and texture you decide to choose.
It can make an entire face of nude matte make up look fresh and vibrant…BUT….picking the right shade can be a little bit tricky.
This is my oppinion and tips you should take into consideration when picking hot pink colour. This review isn’t targeted to your normal day to day pinks …but more the “unatural” daring kind

How to pick the perfect pink!
If you’re a first time bright lip wearer be prepared to purchase the matching lipliner or ever a lip primer to keep everything within the lines and on for longer! mac’s prep and prime lip is perfect to put on before applying lipstick as the wax like formula keeps lipstick cling and not feather!

STAY AWAY FROM SPARKLES AND FROST!This can be what draws most woman to a lipstick they love from afar , then hate once applied.
frost gives the eye something else to look at and can be just abit too much especially if you arn’t blessed with super hydrated and cushy lips!
It’s not very flattering and normally doesn’t give full coverage to the lips.
Instead opt for a opaque creamy texture with either a light amount of shine or more on the matte side. This way they lipstick won’t move around and you can add sparkly gloss if you NEED too later on.

Remember if you are just starting out trying to find that perfect pick the easiest thing to do is go and try colours on at make up counters! ask a consultant for help and maybe start with a more sheer formula that isnt so scary.
Chanel have Rouge coco shine lipsticks that apply like a tinted balm but can give the lips amazing colour pay off but much easier to wear.
Target also sells NYX now and they have the most AMAZING pinks in their lip collection. weather it be a butter gloss for girls who want something more glossy or the extreme lip cream colours the pinks they have are vibrant, fresh and very affordable.

Lime Crime Geradium: The fomula is creamy and SUPER soft so PLEASEEEE don’t leave in a warm spot as it will melt quick! These are vegan and smell amazing! Geradium looks great on girls with a more yellow undertone as it is SUPER bright and won’t make the skin look dull.

MAC Impassioned: A ex boyfriend gave me this as a present a few years ago and i was STOKED! it is SUCH a underrated lipstick in macs collection. It combines the perfect amount of blue and yellow to create a true fushia without those revolting shimmers many lipsticks of this colour will. Looks good on nearly everyone.

Savvy Blossom: Basically a dead on dupe for lime crime but $15 cheaper.

Australis Velour lips Ma-li-boo: the brightest pink lip colour i own, Almost neon.Easy to wear as its matte and dries quickly on the lips. I think it looks best on a more tanned skin but i still wear it when i’m pale and LOVE it. Works best when lip balm is applied for a few minutes before as it can be very drying.

**** the Chanel colour in the photo is limited :(

Ariel lips :)
This was so much fun. I had a clear idea from the start of how I wanted it to look and I am pretty happy with how It turned out.
I always start with a base on Nyx jumbo pencil in ‘milk’ , this gives me some light in the centre of the lips. I’ve then mapped out the tail with MAC ‘undercurrent’ pencil and draw on tiny scales with Nyx studio liquid liner in bright green.
The red is OCC lip tap in ‘nsfw’ and the purple is Australia velour lips in ‘to-kio’.
Of course I needed some glitter ! so I used MAC read glitter which is super fine and doesn’t appear chunky.
For a bit of definition I’ve used some of MAC ‘black track’ liner around the tail to make it pop a bit more  :)
