Summer is fast approaching so queue sun kissed skin and bright colours!

The colour of the season is....PINK! It has been all over the SS13 catwalks from Giles bright pink lips to Donna Karen's hot pink eye shadow and pink mascara!

Pink is a versatile colour and suits any skin tone, so it's a great colour for everyone and it comes it so many different shades from baby pink to bright pink!

Saint German a very famous MAC lipstick, that is notoriously hard to pull off was used on the Ashish catwalk show!

Here is a few of my personal favourite MAC lipsticks:

1. Viva Glam GAGA 

This is a very 'barbie' pink, it's a baby pink colour with a slight blue undertone to it. The lustre formula makes it very creamy and shinny and so there is really no need for a lipgloss ontop of this. I think this is a really great colour especially if you have pale skin as it's not too harsh as say a bright pink would be.

A very baby baby pink!                 
^^ I also forgot to take a photo wearing this colour....opps!! 
2. Bombshell 

This colour is very wear able in the day time as it's not a very harsh pink, it's very muted  The frost formula makes it quite light and also it has lots of gold shimmery pigment running through this colour - so it looks lovely when the sun catches again omitting the need for a shimmery lipgloss. 
As you can see it's a mutted pink .
3. Speed Dial 

This colour is actually one of the first I got from MAC (which is why it's so blunt!) It is kind of simular to Bombshell because it has a very very slight shimmery gold pigment running through it, although no where near as much as Bombshell does. It is a slightly muted hot pink colour. The cremesheen formula makes it very moisturizing on the lips and it doesn't dry them out. The MAC Pink Carat lip glass looks beautiful on top of this. I would also say that this is 
Only just darker than Bombshell. 

4. Viva Glam Nicki 

I brought this one only recently. This is a very very true 'barbie' colour as well....think Nicki Minaj and well this is the exact colour you'd have (which makes sense since she made it!) This isn't for the brave hearted and it probably wouldn't work well if you're super pale (although that's no reason to not wear it) because it is very bright - bordering on almost fluorescent! The colour is a bright pink with a hint of coral in it, so it's a beautiful colour for summer. This is a Satin formula although personally I'd say it's very matte in texture, it is also slightly drying on the lips too.

You can see the coral in it with the sun shining!
