On Wednesdays We Wear Pink

Pink is undeniably a colour I adore all year round - come rain or shine. Working with the Mean Girls motto ‘on Wednesdays we wear pink’, I thought I’d share with you some of my current rosy toned picks - enjoy!

The Real Techniques Stippling Brush was the first piece of Sam and Nic’s collection that I headed out and purchased. I initially started using it alongside a variety of liquid foundations, but have since moved on to singularly using it for blush - both cream and powder products. Fast forward a couple of years, and I now own a number of their brushes and can’t fault their price, quality or durability.

Glittery nail polishes always feature heavily on my nails as we head towards the Christmas season. Models Own 'Hot Stuff' is jam-packed full of chunky pieces of glitter in a variety of colours (predominantly pink), and look great on their own or applied on top of a base colour. I usually opt for just a single feature nail, on both my fingers and toes, to avoid glitter overload (pretty much just ‘blog talked ’myself into applying it tonight!).

The Rimmel Apocolips have featured a couple of times on my blog now, and are one of my go-to lip products. '102 Nova' is a lovely warm-toned shade that applies like a cream without looking too glossy - (think liquid lipstick). Speaking on behalf of all the Apocolips shades I have tried & tested, their application is super easy (in my opinion - no need for a lip liner) and their lasting power is hardcore - winner.

I only have a handful of MAC blushes, and all are of similar vibrant shades. I always tend to lean towards vivid pink tones, as I find they suit my fair skin tone the best. MAC 'Pink Swoon' is  an exceptionally bold sheertone blush that requires a very gentle hand. I apply this in a stippling motion using the Real Techniques brush mentioned above!

On days when I either haven’t got much time on my hands to get ready, or I want a lip product that is fuss free and extremely subtle in colour, I reach for a tinted lip balm. The Pixi Lip Balm in shade Ripe Raspberry has a delicate pink tint whilst keeping my lips super hydrated. I absolutely love the bullet packaging as it makes it extremely easy to apply when on the move.

Do you have any 'pink themed' favourites?


  1. I also love Pink Swoon and I am heart broken MAC has decided to discontinue it. I wore Limecrime's Pink Velvet over the weekend and I had forgotten how much I love that color. I've also been loving No Faux Pas from MAC's Heirloom Mix collection.

    We should just all wear pink every Wednesday it seems only appropriate! Thanks for the post :)

  2. The Pixi Lip Balm looks such a lovely colour, my favourite pink item is also from Pixi, it is the Tinted Brilliance Balm in Pretty Pink (#4) it just goes on so smoothly and tastes minty!
