This week Makeup Wars is all about color and our warriors (aka bloggers) are pairing off to bring you the best of their favorite color for cosmetics. I choose pink because I have so MUCH of it! Turns out that wasn’t such a smart choice–I have too many pinks! Anywho here are some of my most loved pink blushes, lipsticks and eye shadows.

Let’s start with the windows to the soul; the eyes!

From top left clockwise:

SENNA Rose Gold Glow Eye Color ($18) is a beautiful golden pink with a silky soft texture that makes eyes look like you’ve had 8 hours sleep you definitely haven’t! I would classify it as a satin finish with a slight sheen, perfect for us over 40 gals!

Lancôme Color Design Infinite 24H ($24.50) – These are high shimmer with a creamy texture, extremely long wearing shadows that stay put. Perpetual Pink a pale icy pink, was a pleasant surprise for this over 40 lady. I love it! It glides on and adds such nice glow! On the frosty side, they also make a nice base for powder shadows. See my full review here. 

BECCA Venise is a beautiful warm shimmery pink rose shade with a touch of gold. It’s beautiful on it’s own as a wash or with a wealth of colored eyeliners. I especially like it paired with a bronze liner like MAC Teddy or NARS Via Appia.

Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour Seashell ($15) – a lightweight, finely milled texture caught my attention immediately. Seashell is a baby pink shade with a lovely luminous finish. Makes an ideal highlight shade or worn alone with a black winged liner for a classic look.

Now on to pink blushes!

Estee Lauder Mad Men See-Thru Blush In Light Show ($50) – a true bright pink with a good amount of pigment. Not quite matte, and not sparkly, there is just a touch of shimmer to add a subtle radiance. I love this fresh, natural color! Adore the fun 60’s packaging! Read my full review here.

Youngblood Luminous Créme Blush ($27) – cream blushes are fabulous for over 40 women; no clinging to lines or sitting on top of skin looking dry. This blush imparts a sheer, natural flush of color. Tafetta is cool medium pink that is universally flattering and super creamy!

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Dollface ($26)- I’m sure I don’t need to tell you how fantastic these blushes are or how über long lasting they are (read this post if you’re not familiar). Dollfaced is a cool, sweet pink–not all that unusual. What makes this blush special is the formula; if every other blush fades on your skin, you’ll want a few of these Tarte blushes in your collection.

NYX Blush in Pinched ($5.99) – an excellent budget option are the highly pigmented NYX blushes. Pinched is a bright medium pink with almost there shimmer. It blends easily, if you are fair skinned, use a duo fiber or fan brush–it’s THAT pigmented!

I have waaaay too many pink lipsticks/glosses to name! This post lists my 5 favorite bright pink lipsticks.
