First Late Night Lippy Lovin post of 2013 people!!
And it's one that i'm particularly loving this time! I've been on a bit of a quest for the perfect pink lippy recently. I have a few pink lipsticks that i really enjoy wearing but none of them have ever felt..... perfect. Either they leaned SLIGHTLY too blue, or the formula wasn't right, or it was gorgeous but just not bright enough to feel special. My favourite MAC pinks for in the daytime are Creme Cup and Hue but they just weren't FUN enough.
Before Christmas i had a little mini swatch-a-thon in Selfridges and asked the opinion of a couple of the MUAs and they pointed me towards one that i had been curious about for a little while which was this one....
Chatterbox (Amplified Creme)
MAC describe this shade as a 'Bright Red Pink' and i think that's a pretty accurate description. Chatterbox is just that little bit different to any other pinky pink lipstick i've ever tried. It's a bright shade without being massively in your face or neon and it isn't blue-toned, which is great for me, being a warm toned girlie. I'm totally fine with the Amplified finish too. It has a creamy feel on the lips and isn't drying at all.
Due to the foul weather and impossibly dull lighting at the moment i'm a little unimpressed with the quality of these swatches, but you get the idea.
Wow, this photo reminds me that i REALLY need to tan!! To be fair i had to brighten it a little to reflect the true colour of the lipstick as the light was dying on me. I'm not really quite this ghostly!
I've not been wearing this lipstick willy-nilly all the time, even though i do adore it. This is my new favourite going out/special occasion pink lippy. I've worn it with both neutral and smokey eye looks and it's a really versatile shade. You could also try it mixed with MAC Myth (or similar nude) to tone it down for more day to day wear.
What's your perfect pink lippy??
