50 Shades of Pink?

Sweet Peas, today's post has been written by Rosie, who is the author of 'Rosie Louise Love'.  Rosie is 18 years old and describes herself as a bit of a nerd and a crazy cat lady!  Rosie started blogging in November and her blog is just delightful, very fresh and easy on the eye.  If you haven't already visited Rosie, nip over and show her some support, today  she is talking about her April Faves - so defo worth a read, especially if you are a nosey parker like me.  


50 Shades of Pink?



Ah Spring weather is finally here. It's been so dreadful recently i thought I'd never see a blue sky again. To me Spring is all about pretty colours, whether it be a bright fuchsia or a pastel pink. I always end up wearing a lot of pink products throughout Spring. Pink is easily one of my favourite colours for make up products in general, as there are so many beautiful shades of pink, the subtle pink flush of the cheek or a slick of a Barbie Pink Lipstick can really help complete any look. In honour of the weather starting to look a little bit nicer i thought I'd share some of my favourite Pink products with you

NYX Megashine Lip gloss in "La~ La~" is a beautiful bright pink lip gloss. I love rockin' the bright pink lip as i think this is a make up look that suits everyone and any occasion. The lip gloss is very highly pigmented and has a gorgeous Cherry scent. The formula is really great, not sticky but lasts a while and i love the slight shimmer in this gloss as it makes for a gorgeous look!

Barry M Dazzle Dust in Colour 78 is a lovely light baby pink eyeshadow in loose powder form. It's very highly pigmented so a little goes a very long way. The eyeshadow is very shimmery so if you're not a fan of shimmer, this isn't the product for you. It glides on the lid and blends very easily.

Elf Studio Blush in "Pink Passion" is a matte bright candy pink! It can look a little scary in the pan, but on the cheeks it leaves a beautiful and natural looking flush of colour to the cheeks. It's easily build able so can be worn subtly or layered on for a more dramatic look.

Essie's "We're In It Together" which came in my April GlossyBox is a gorgeous baby pink with subtle iridescent shimmer. It dries quickly which helps stop those annoying smudges too! This is the Nail Polish that pushed me onto an addiction to buying Essie Nail Polish'!

The Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers in "Nova" and "Apocaliptic" are too very beautiful pinks. Nova is a lovely medium pink shade whereas Apocaliptic is an in your face bright darker pink that's sure to be seen for a mile away! I love the Apocalips, they have the benefits of a lip gloss and a lipstick1 They're long wearing, pigmented and come in a wide range of beautiful colours to suit any mood or occasion.

My final product is another product which came in my April GlossyBox and it is the Illamasqua Medium Pencil in "Manic" which is literally the most pigmented multi-tasking product I've ever tried. It says you can use it on your eyes, lips face and body. It leaves a beautiful bright pink line and the pencil is very soft and creamy. The colour glides on easily without tugging or pulling and stays for hours with no touch up needed! The pencil is a beautiful bright candy pink with no shimmer. This has made me look into other Illamasqua products and hoping I'll enjoy them as much as I've enjoyed this pencil!
