Now that I've managed to find a perfect red I'm now on the hunt for a perfect pink. So ladies, tell me, what is your favourite pink lipstick?

I have MAC Pink Plaid which is a fantastic 50s pink but it can make me look sallow depending on what I am wearing. I think it'll be reserved for my lighter colour summer frocks.

I suit plum pinks. I wore MAC's Sequin on my wedding day and I still wear that in the evenings. I wear MAC Viva Glam V lipglass during the day. It's sheer and described as a neutral pink but it has a bit of gold shimmer. I'm on the lookout for something a bit... creamier, a bit heavier and without shimmer for Winter.

It's sad that I live so far from my closest MAC counter. I'd love to try on their lipstick all day. Smile

I haven't worn pinks since my 20s. Pale anything just makes me looked washed out.

I don't wear pinks very often but there's always Revlon's Cherries in the Snow (quite a hot pink).

Sometimes I'll wear a dull plum color, but haven't found a favorite one yet.

Pink just seems a difficult colour.

I don't think I can get 'Cherries in the Snow' over here. I've looked for it before but haven't been able to find it.

Have you tried online? That might be the way to go.

It's very dense stuff, a tube lasts a really long time!

Well I have just bought a new pink lipstick - Pink Saint by Lipstick Queen, which is quite a raspberry pink on me.

Lipstick Queen do their colours in two versions: 'Saints' (sheer) and 'Sinners' (opaque). They also do not have animal ingredients nor do they test on animals.

The woman in the shop was quite helpful. She explained that as my lips are naturally quite dark the baby pinks I was looking at will tend to look metallic on me. She pointed me to colours I would never have tried just looking at them in the tube but on my lips they looked good.

I love MAC's "Bombshell."

Also, Besame Cosmetics does a lovely plummy color, Dusty Rose. Good every day color.
