Pink Makeup for Valentine's Day? Groundbreaking


Happy Valentine's Day! I'm not the biggest fan of the holiday and usually opt for a cozy night in, so as such I don't really have any groundbreaking date night looks. I do, however, have a bit of an obsession with the color pink/wearing the color pink on my face, so I've dug through my collection to pick out some of my favorites. Maybe some of these will give you a bit of inspiration if you're putting together a Valentine-themed look.



NABLA Cosmetics Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette (review) - An underrated gem. It has the prettiest collection of pinks, rose golds, and purples to create a whole bunch of unique yet wearable looks.

Milk Makeup Eye Pigment, 'After Party' (review) - My favorite shade of Milk's Eye Pigments. It's a lovely rose gold that leans true pink instead of copper, and the formula doesn't budge all day - just make sure to apply thin layers so it doesn't feel stiff.

Stila Glitter & Glow Eyeshadow, 'Kitten Karma' - The prettiest pink champagne that packs a punch of glitter. These beautiful shadows are 100% worth the hype.

Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss, 'Frosting' - A super similar shade to the Stila Kitten, but with metallic shimmer rather than glitter. These have a super cool bouncy texture that sets down and doesn't budge on the eyes. They look glossy, but don't feel glossy.

NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow, 'Rigel' - An icy pink champagne that adds a ton of brightness to any eye look. It's beautiful both all over the eyes as well as in the inner corner.

Dior Fusion Mono Eyeshadow, 'Chimiere' (review) - I still don't know if these are being discontinued or not, but this is a great one so snap it up if you're worried about missing it. It's a more muted pink shimmer that adds a chic amount of sparkle and sheen to the eye.

NUDESTIX Rock N' Roller Eyeliner, 'Golden Rosé - I thought these were gimmicky at first, but I'm actually really loving them. This true rose gold makes for the prettiest eyeliner shade that's not too bold but still adds some definition to the eye.



Givenchy Le Prisme Blush, 'Vintage Pink' - An underrated gem in my collection. It's a beautiful true pink that brightens the skin. I like swirling all four shades together for a pink glow.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush, 'Ethereal Glow' - My new obsession. It's a super pretty cool-toned pink with just enough glow to make the skin look really healthy.

Bite Beauty Multistick, 'Mascarpone' (review) - The best multitaskers. Mascarpone is a deep salmon pink that's warm enough to brighten the skin, but not so warm that it pulls orange on me. It works beautifully on eyes, lips, and cheeks for a monochromatic look.

Glossier Cloud Paint, 'Puff' (review) - My one true love. If I had to get rid of all but one blush I would choose this one in a heartbeat. It is the perfect shade to add a natural flush of color, and the formula is absolutely foolproof.

Lilah b. Divine Duo Lip & Cheek, 'b, true' - This is described as a mauve online, but to me it's a true pink. It also adds a beautiful flush to the cheeks that mimics the look of being out in the cold. It also works beautifully on the lips.


Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter, 'Girl Next Door/Chic Phreak' (review) - One of the prettiest highlights I own. The pink base doesn't show up as much as you'd think, and it leaves a more wet-looking sheen on the skin.

Dior Nude Air Luminizer, '002 Pink Glow' - This leaves the prettiest soft pink glow on the skin (hence the name I guess!) and it looks equally stunning sitting on my vanity.

Milk Makeup Holographic Stick, 'Stardust' - This is more of a blush topper for me but beautiful nonetheless. It's a soft pink glaze with a lavender shift that takes any look to the next level.

Lilah b. Divine Duo Lip & Cheek, 'b. dazzling' - This one is super subtle but still lovely. It's the one to pop on on a more minimal makeup day for a soft champagne pink sheen.

Fenty Beauty Matchstix Shimmer Stick, 'Starstruck' (review) - This one packs a punch. It's a little glittery, but it makes a statement for sure.



Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment, 'Bloom' - These lip treatments are some of my favorites. They're so nourishing on the lips and pack as much pigment as a regular lipstick. Bloom is the prettiest pure pink that adds a flush of color to the lips.

Givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto Beautifying Lip BalmThis is one of those balms that adjusts depending on your body's pH/temperature. It leaves a nice pink tint to the lips and feels moisturizing and a little plumping. Plus the packaging is to die for.

Dior Addict Lip Glow, 'Raspberry' - Similar to the Givenchy, but it creates a brighter pink hue on the lips. The Lip Glows are probably my favorite lip product, period.

Dior Addict Lip Glow PomadeThis gel/gloss hybrid leaves the lips looking soft and smooth, gives a glassy sheen, and also leaves the tiniest hint of a pink tint.

Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo, 'Activist' (review) - A beautifully creamy formula that stays put pretty well. Activist is a nice peachy pink.

Clinique Pop Lip Color & Primer, 'Nude Pop' - The best nude pink shade in my opinion. These Lip Pops are comfortable on the lips, smooth out my lip lines, and last a long time.

NARS Lipstick, 'Dolce Vita' - One of the most versatile nudes in my collection. It's quite sheer, so it adds just a hint of pink nude that can be worn alone or over a liner to tone it down a little.

Pixi Beauty MatteLast Liquid Lip, 'Really Rose' - Like the name suggests, it's a true rose shade. These liquid lipsticks are quite comfortable and contain rosehip oil to help nourish the lips. 

Glossier Generation G, 'Like' - Probably my most-worn lipstick. It leaves a sheer matte stain in the perfect pink shade. My lips. but pinker.

Bite Beauty Prismatic Pearl Lip Gloss, 'Pink Pearl' - This is the prettiest gloss I own, and it looks perfect over the Gen G in Like. It gives a metallic pink finish that doesn't look overdone.

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick, '44 Nude Lavalliere' - Another great pink nude that's a little more pink than nude. The formula feels beautiful on the lips, and it's a pleasure to reapply.

Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme, 'Shush, Blush' (review) - I forgot how much I loved this until I pulled it back out for this post. It doesn't set down like most liquid lipsticks, keeping it comfortable and not crackly. Shush Blush is a beautiful deep pink.

Surratt Beauty Prismatique Lipstick, 'Lili Doree' (review) - The key to a rose gold lip. It's a creamy formula that gives the lips a rosy tint with a whole lot of gold shimmer that never feels gritty. Another "chic sparkle" product for sure.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, 'Intriguing' - The Velvet Mattes are some of my favorite lip products. They're easy to apply, don't budge, and fade evenly. Intriguing is one of the newer shades and is a lovely peachy pink - as peachy as I'll go.

Nudestix Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm, 'Rebel' (review) - This leaves the softest pink sheen on the lips that feels ultra-balmy and comfortable. It leaves a nice dewy sheen when used on the cheeks, too.

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Creamy Satin Lipstick, 'Rosy Boop' - Another beautiful rose shade that looks so chic and pulls any look together. The formula is lovely, and the packaging feels so luxe.

NARS Velvet Lip Glide, 'Bound' (review) - I forgot about my love for these when the Powermattes came out, but they're beautiful just the same. They don't set down to a fully matte finish and stay extremely comfortable. Bound is a cool pinky mauve that looks good with the cool toned makeup I usually wear.

Pat McGrath Permagel Ultra Lip Pencil, 'Bare Rose' - Last but not least, my ultimate favorite lip pencil. It's the perfect nude pink that still gives my lips some color rather than taking it away. It's super creamy to apply but doesn't move at all once on the lips - probably going to be my wedding lipstick.

If you made it to the end - thank you! What are your favorite pink products?
