Perfect Pink Lips using Drugstore Lipsticks!!!

I personally have found the perfect pink shades that would flatter those lips during the summer months, and best of all affordable drugstore brands, like Rimmel, and Max Factor.  These pinks are not to bold or intense just subtle enough to pull off, but if you like a more understated look for your lips try a nice beige lip gloss to tone down that pink. But in this case I found the perfect soft pinky colors with the perfect subtle sheen them.

I am loving the max Factor l/s in the color # 04 it is a nice soft but more intense pink color not to bright or matte looking it has that perfect sheen and pink color, it is also very moisturizing as well, but I always recommend applying a nice SPF containing lip balm before hand (try EOS they are great check my  post archive on a post about EOS)

And for the next two shades I love are by Rimmel London,  I picked up the color pink chic (purple packaging) and the color pink blush (dark burgundy packing) and they are some what similar but pink chic is a bit more sheer and a little more smooth too. But they are both amazing soft pink colors, none of the shades I picked up contain shimmer, or frost they are all creamy color's which I love in l/s, I really don't prefer to much shimmer or frost on my lips, depends on my mood though , LOL. Give these perfect shades a try during the summer to flatter your lips, apply a nice lip gloss that you prefer to add a little pop to the color.

PRICING / WHERE TO BUY: I got all these at my local K-Mart but Wal-Mart is another great place to go too, MF-$3.19 on sale, RL (pink chic) $7.29, RL (pink blush) 5.99.

EOS Lip Balm's

EOS Lip Balm's are not only great lip care but the packaging is to die for, the cutest thing I have seen!!!
(see photo below) If you are like me I am a total sucker for packaging ( although the products has to be good too)

I personally picked up 3 flavors, honey dew honey suckle (green ball), summer fruit (red ball), and vanilla bean (in a regular l/s tube,off white color) I know that there is a lemon drop (new) out there but I haven't gotten my hands on that one yet. :(

I love these lip balms they are great quality lip care for the price, the texture is great and they contain Shea butter and other natural oils, which is great for moisturizing and protecting your lips. I have used mines every day since I've gotten them and already notice a difference in how smooth my lips are!!!

They smell amazing, I must admit they are true to there names, although summer fruit is more like a guava smell if you are familiar with that? But it's my favorite scent out of all the ones I have, now i must admit I am a sucker for citrus so once I get the lemon drop we'll see if I change my mind? LOL!!!

Anyways photo's are below, and pricing and where to buy, I really recommend any one getting these they are amazing, I should have a haul posted on my you tube channel soon with these in it (evitaw2) Thanks for stopping by my blog hope you enjoy, and follow me for all future posts : )


PRICING / WHERE TO BUY: Rite Aid or online (google) I got them at Rite Aid for $3.29 each.
