“Wash of Pink” Lip Colors

links + small things

If you’re looking for just a “wash of color” in a lip product, I have 5 easy to wear pinks to recommend for you! These all feel like a balm or a gloss, and add a sheer pink flush to the lips.

Number One: Nars Afterglow Lip Balm in Orgasm

This is the most bubble gum of the bunch and extremely hydrating. I’ve had one of these tubes in my purse for years!

Number Two: Lancome L’Absolu Mademoiselle Lip Balm in Plump Pink

Hydrating with a cooling sensation.

Number Three: L’Oreal Glow Paradise in 110 Mulberry Bliss

Feels very balmy and light on the lips, and the pink is bright!

Number Four: YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick Balm in 44

Has the most color payoff of the bunch, but is still very effortless to apply and wear. These taste/smell fantastic.

Number Five: MoistureGlow™ Plumping Lip Serum in Apricot Glow

This actually does feel like it plumps my lips up a bit, without being painful like some lip plumping products. The color payoff is minimal.

I really like all of these lip colors, especially on a light makeup day! These are also a great way to add shine or hydration on top of a lipstick that may feel a bit dry, so don’t hesitate to play around with ways to wear them!

You’re hair looks so cute!! I also LOVE the NARS balm, have about 5 of the scattered around the house, car, purse, work bag…

Where did you find the rings on your pointer finger? They are exactly what I’ve been searching for on Etsy and cannot find any that do not tarnish.

Would love to know where the sparkly one came from too! lol

They are from Ring Concierge, and the ring on my right hand ring finger was a gift from Justin, from a local jewelry store.

I love the length of your hair and am contemplating cutting mine; however, I tend to wear mine up in a bun most days. Are you able to put your hair up at this length? I’d love to see some advice on styling updos for medium length hair! Thanks!
