Loving Right Now: Spring Pinks

May 5, 2011

I’m loving spring pinks right now. I can’t get enough of them. They make me feel polished and brighten my skin in a soft and feminine way. A few favorites right now:

  • Chanel Riviera Le Vernis – reviewed here, featured here, compared to Rose Insolent here, duped here
  • Chanel Morning Rose Le Vernis – reviewed here and compared here
  • Chanel Aventure Rouge Coco Shine
  • Edward Bess First Kiss Lip Gloss – featured here
  • MAC Pleasantry Mineralized Blush – from 2008ish

Compared to Bobbi Brown Pale Pink (old packaging) for color reference:

Morning Rose feels like it’s a bit faded looking – I think it’s because of the top coat I used which is the Dior from the Electric Tropics duos, I feel as though it doesn’t help colors last and makes them look slightly faded. It looks amazing on the Dior, not so much on Chanels.

All swatched on the arm for reference:

What are some of your favorite pinks?

  • Like you, I'm also loving Morning Rose. It's such a beautiful pink for the spring/summer. I thought about getting Adventure but was iffy. Now that I see it on you, it's definitely going back on the list!

  • Chanel Adventure looks so pretty!!

  • The Chanel Aventure Rouge Coco Shine looks devine on you! Much more pigmented than I recall. Might have to swatch it again. My favourite pink item at the moment is MAC coygirl sheertone blush and Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose.

    This week, I'm getting a lot of use out of Chanel RCS Chance, also MAC Azalea Blossom blush (goes well with Aruba bronzer). Also feeling pretty using Chanel Rouge Coco in Rose Dentelle one day and the next — D&G Fascination Shine Lipstick. Pinks and spring go together!

    I'm absolutely thrilled with Dior Aloha on my nails, but this weekend I plan to use Chanel Rose Blossom on my nails, and the always-lovely NARS Angelika lip gloss.

  • wow LOVE First Kiss!

  • Sabrina, we are flip flop twins! I love Tory Burch flip flops. Do you know if Edward Bess' lip glosses have lanolin in them? I'm allergic to lanolin, but his glosses are singing to me!

  • Chanel Riviera is such a beautiful color, especially on toes. Thanks for sharing the swatches!

  • Great, you made me want Pleasantry now! I didn't know about it until now, it's from before I got into Mac. πŸ™ Now I must track it down. It's all your fault. Bah humbug! πŸ˜€
