The Lips #19: A Peachy Pout Part Two

Sunday, 21 July 2013

L-R: MAC Shy Girl, MAC Sweet & Sour & Chanel Idylle
When it comes to makeup, lipstick is my thing so much so that I own quite a number of them.  A fact I'm unsure as to whether to be proud or ashamed of...but while I flirt with bold berry numbers and bright pinks, NARS Schiap anyone, neutral peach toned shades hold a special place in my heart makeup storage.

First seen in the original Peachy Pout post and showing no signs of abating.  Today I thought I'd go through the ones I've been wearing on rotation recently:

The nude - MAC Shy Girl a warm almost nude toned peach shade.  It looks almost brown in the bullet but it is much more peachier on the skin.  The formula is a Cremesheen one of my favourites for its creamy opaque texture.  

The newbie - MAC Sweet & Sour part of the recent All About Orange Collection.  This is truer peach shade with some coral tones.  Again a Cremesheen formula, it imparts a nice sheen without being overly glossy.  Wears off naturally.  

The sheer - Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in 457 Idylle gives a pretty sheen to the lips with just the hint of colour.  The lack of pigmentation negates the need for fussy, mirror required re-application.

The gloss - Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 02 Apricot Shimmer the shimmer is barely detectable once applied and this leaves a light sheen on the lips.  More of a balm like texture, means glossy not gloopy.

So there's the run-down of my preferred peach toned picks.  What lipsticks have you been loving recently?
