Friday 28th September 2012 is Bright Pink Lipstick Day. As a lover of pink lipstick (the brighter the better) I had to share this great cause with you.
"Bright Pink Lipstick Day is an initiative run by Pink Hope to raise the profile of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer in Australia. While encouraging everyone to investigate their family history. Pucker Up and support Pink Hope! Wear Bright Pink Lipstick on the 28th of September" - Pink Hope
The idea behind Bright Pink Lipstick Day is
- Share the positive message of Pink Hope
- Encourage the community to raise funds
- Bring attention to the effects of hereditary cancer
- Encourage women to step out of their comfort zone and feel fantastic for the day
Cancer is a serious condition and we all need to be aware of it and raise as much money as we can to help research to cure this disease. Cancer, no matter the type is a horrible disease, I watched my beloved Grandad suffer and eventually succumb to cancer. It is something nobody should go through.
I decided to share some of my favourite bright pink lipsticks to give you some inspiration for tomorrow. I LOVE bright pink lipsticks and found it quite hard to pick out only five from my collection to show you (I have many more than 5). I tried to chose lipsticks from different price ranges and different finishes.
My top 5 bright pink lipsticks are:
Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in 20
This is the lipstick Kate Moss wears in the Rimmel advertisement. This is an amazing bright pink lipstick with a satin finish. It is beautifully pigmented and lasts well. It also feels really nice on the lips. It is a steal at $11.95 each.
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in 090 Sweet Tart
As Revlon is a sponsor/partner of Bright Pink Lipstick Day I had to include a product from them. I love the Lip Butter's they are such an easy way to wear a bright lipstick. These retail for $21.95 each.
Clinique Chubby Stick in 15 Pudgy Peony
This is my latest Chubby Stick and I am in love with it. This is really moisturising and provides that subtle hit of a bright lip colour, perfect for those a little shy of bright lipsticks. This retails for $35.00.
Illamasqua Lipstick in Eurydice
This is a matte, bright hot pink and perfect for those full of confidence to pull it off. A little more drying than others but a beautiful colour. This retails for $25.00 thanks to Illamasqua's recent price drop (Yay for Illamasqua).
YSL Rouge Volupte Perle in 114 Sparkling Fuchsia
I had to include a high end lipstick in this list. After all this is Luxury on the Lips. This is a gorgeous shiny bright pink. It is also quite moisturising on the lips. This retails for $55.00.
The swatches above are in the same order as the lipsticks are listed. How beautiful do they all look? Gorgeous I say and that's how they would look on your lips.
I encourage you to get behind Bright Pink Lipstick Day, slap on your brightest pink lipstick, spread the Pink Hope message and if you can donate to Pink Hope here.
What is your favourite bright pink lipstick? Will you be wearing it tomorrow?
