Makeup Monday: Five Rose Lipsticks To Try

(I’m wearing MAC Mehr in this photo, a creamy matte, nude/rose hybrid) 

Though you’ll often see me in reds and hot pinks, I probably wear rose lip colors more than anything. Often dismissed as an “old lady color” (I can’t begin to tell you how many people have said that), rose can be a beautiful substitute for a true nude, when you need a little more color. Below are some of my current favorites:

1) Bobbi Brown Lip Color in “Rose” – a medium rose with a soft, matte finish. See it in action here (blotted) and here (full effect)

2) Julie Hewett Cheekie Cheek and Lip Shine in “Bette” – a bronzed rose that can double as a cheek color. I prefer this in pot form but this color seems to be reduced to pan size. See it in action here

3) Too Faced La Creme in “I Want Candy” – a raspberry rose with an ultra creamy, hydrating finish. It leans a little more red than this picture shows, but you can see me wearing it here.

4) Dior Addict Lipstick in “Dior Kiss” – a dark rosy pink with a sheer, glossy finish. 

5) Butter London Lippy Tinted Balm in “Abbey Rose” – though described as a tinted balm, this rose lipstick has medium coverage, with a creamy, ultra hydrating finish.

      Notice that they never say she is actually wearing it in the movie…they just recommend it to recreate the look. Lipsticks will look different from person to person, but this lipstick has more pigment than most tinted balms.
