Love this bright lip combo!

Natalie Sunday, July 24, 2011
Wet n Wild 511B Nouveau Pink (First mentioned in my haul post here)
NYX Round Lipgloss in Doll Pink (Mentioned in my '09 NYX post here)

I love bright lipsticks, but the truth is... they make me nervous. For whatever the reason may be, bright lipsticks are out of my comfort zone. I do admire a good bright lipstick when I see one, maybe even purchase it, but it will just end up collecting dust in my lipstick drawer.

There are some days where I'll feel like being a little more adventurous with my lip color, and I'll toss on MAC Vegas Volt, MAC Morange, NYX Louisiana or OCC Divine Lip Tar without much thought. In the past month or so, Wet n Wild Nouveau Pink has pretty much replaced all of those other brights I like to wear - who woulda thought at 99 cents? It's such a flattering shade that really brightens up my face (and I'm pretty sure it makes my teeth appear whiter). It's really pretty on it's own, but I like pairing it with NYX Round Lipgloss in Doll Pink. It takes it up a notch. 

If you're terrified of brights (or red) like me, I recommend experimenting with the inexpensive brands before investing in a high end lipstick you may only wear once a year. Wet n Wild has great options for a low price. If you like the color, force yourself to wear it! Don't look in the mirror every 15 minutes while you're out, forget that you're wearing it. If you can get through a full day of wearing it before putting on something else neutral, you've passed the test! I bet you'll get some compliments too while you're out. Try it more often!


What is your favorite bright lipstick?

  27. Woo, you look hot! I use to always wear a pink lipstick like this back in the 80's. I went through many tubes of it. It looks so flattering with dark brown hair. I need to go look and see if this is the pink by Wet N Wild have.

  28. I love Impassioned and Girl about town by MAC!

  29. Makeup and Macaroons - Isn't it!? I always find Wet n Wild for 40% off, so it ends up being 60 cents. Can't beat that! Gahhh, I need Impassioned! It's been on my w/l for so long!

    DaintyMakeup - Thank you!! :) Boy.. I must get Impassioned ASAP!

    Alex Kay - HAHA, TY! Aw, I was going to buy Toxic Tale though a blog sale last week. It was a really good deal too. Like $7? Kinda wish I got it now! I'll have to check out those others!

    Alexa - Thanks so much! I love Doll Pink. I rarely wear it, but it is a really great lip gloss, Even by itself.

    Shannon - Thanks so much, Shannon! You should definitely try it! Whenever I see bloggers rock a color out of the ordinary - I LOVE IT!

    www.Victoria-Gabrielle.com & Jess126xo - Thank you!! :)

    Anna - Aww you just made me smile.. thank you, love! And, GIRL You're crazy! As hot as you are, you could pull anything off! ;)

    Jenn & Rai - Thanks!! <3

  30. Marla - Thank you, Sweetie! Haha, totally. They're both so inexpensive - even if you don't wear them much.. it's still worth it.

    Makeup Artist Jessica Rivera - Aww, thank you!! :)

    Dani - I typically wear it alone too because it is definitely pigmented enough to wear alone. It's so pretty.. I haven't come across a similar shade at the drugstore. Haha I was feeling a little adventurous I suppose. Thank you so much!

    Amira - Thank you!!! LOL! Doooo it... Dooo it. Peer pressure. >:]

  31. Phoebe Limanta - Do try it!!

    MariaAndrea van der wall arneman - Thank you, love!

    Lerina - Thank you!! <3

    stiletto - Thanks hun!!!

    Tenaca - Thank you!! Ooh, I'm going to have to check that out. I love Revlon's lipsticks and super lusterous glosses. They have some pretty brights that I'd love to get my hands on :)

    Widdlesh - TY!!!

    kellyyes - Thank you!!! Haha, it totally does. Maybe it's the slight blue tone - I'm not sure because I know lilac for sure makes my teeth look YELLOW.

    TaTa - Thank you!! Haha, you won't know till you try! :)

    bettzy93 - They're seriously not even that white right now! I think I'm going to start having to use some Crest White Strips. I drink coffee too much. They look whiter when I'm tan.

    Blushed Pearls - Aw, thank you lovely! You're so sweet.

    Laiqah - AWW thank you honey!! OMG I bet a bright lip would look SO good on you. Do you own MAC Impassioned? Ever single person I see it on, it looks amazing. I think you'd pull off the look very well.

    Dee Vine - TY! Yeah, for sure! :)

  32. dandelionpicker - I totally know what you mean. Usually I go really natural with the eyes. I'll usually just line the top line (usually with dark brown) and black mascara. Or, I'll just use a beige all over lid color (like MAC Brule) with a soft brown in the crease. Very natural. The star of the show should be the lipstick!

    Meaghan Mae- Haha! Isn't that funny? I think it's because when you go out, you don't really see many people wearing bright colors. I guess I feel a little embarrassed.. but it's so silly to think like that. Do try it! Don't even think twice about it.

    Nymphette - That comes from someone that can rock ANYTHING!!! TY!! HAHA, I'M AFRAID!! ;) I bet it looks gorg on you.

    Kosmetik Designs - Wow, thank you so much hun! That means a lot to me! I'm so happy you like it!

    Anonymous - Thank you! In this photo I'm only wearing MAC Studio Fix Powder. My favorites right now are Chanel Vitalumiere and Guerlain Parure Extreme. I have my full list of favorites at the top of the page under my "Favorite Products".

    KnitPastis - Ty, love! Haha! Thats funny, my mom told me it's so 80's/early 90's when I asked for her opinion about purchasing it. She loves it though when I wear it. I agree! I think they flatter brown hair VERY well!

    Little Mrs. Middleton - I want those both! I heard Girl About Town is somewhat similar to this one!

  33. That colour looks awesome on you!! The tones are perfect for your skintone. Doll Pink has really climbed up to a high spot on my wishlist these days!!

  34. I love this on you. The pink looks good with your tan dear =). I don't own any bold bold lipsticks except like Vegas Volt and bright corals. I will try this inexpensive one first. I had NARS Schiap in mind for a bold pink.

    ReplyDelete
  35. That lip combo looks gorgeous on you! You've definitely inspired me to step out with bold lips more often :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. That combo is awesome!! I have a similar color from NARS that I love but I've always been too timid to try it!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Love the bright pink lips! I might just have to go out and try that shade!
